We have some of the best food in Greece, and the island culture is sure not to disappoint. We challenge even the Michelin palates not to love our favorite spots.
Greece is grounded in a food centric culture and Kefalonia is a perfect example of traditional and local foods that please even the most distinguished Michelin palates. Myth has it that feta cheese was invented on the island amongst other clever cooking methods that you will explore during your culinary eye opener. Picture grass fed and local meats that are caramelized over open flames, flaky white grilled fish that has been bathed in a luxurious mix of lemon and local olive oil and the tastiest vegetables served completely plain that will blow your mind. Dessert is another not to miss item with creamy and honey-based concoctions that have influence from both the Franco-Prussian and Italian influences. Our cultivated locals love it list is an easy way to start exploring the Greek and island cuisine.
