Great place to eat and very good value for money. It's an excellent choice if you are coeliac as Kastro's have a separate gluten free menu! Well done guys as my son loved your food that was served to him! There are great terraces that...you can admire the views. Everywhere are clean and tidy and I think the cleanest and most organised toilets I have ever seen in the islands. All in all great service and great food all served with lots of smiles. Thankyou for a great visit!More

We finally visited Kastro on our last full day in Kefalonia this year and dropped in to the cafe after wandering round the castle. All the superlatives in other reviews are justified: we just had a mid-morning snack, inevitably the lime pie which is fabulous....We have every intention of returning for lunch next year - it's a lovely place and a lovely village and castle as well.More

We went for lunch today and can not recommend enough if you can you must try. We called to book ahead as it does get busy our table was waiting for us. The menu is varied and everything looked delicious... brilliant atmosphere and staff are...lovely. We tried the baked carbonara... Greek salad and the special croquettes finished with pecan ice cream cake everything was outstanding. Parking can be busy but you can park further down the street and walk up.. bit steep but not to to bad... very reasonable prices also.More

We visited this restaurant having gone round the old venetian castle. What a treat! The food was delightful and the staff were so warm and welcoming. We had spinach pie and roasted vegetables - absolutely heavenly. Definitely going here again even if it's bit of...a hike from Fiscardo.More

After 2 years we are so pleased Nikki and Spiros are still.busy hosting many visitors in this beautiful garden with their lovely smiling faces and exceptionally tasty food. Everything is faultless and nothing is too much trouble. A beautiful lunch today with simple dishes, all...home made with Nikki's own recipes - pitta and dips is one of our favourites. Limoncello to finish, again home made was a real treat. They work so hard to please, so please drive up the hill to see this gorgeous food in a heavenly settingMore
