Being so close to St George's Castle, we were very lucky to be so close to what became our favourite places to eat. To Kastro Cafe (The Castle Cafe) is run by a Greek man and his English wife, and they were both so friendly and welcoming. We visited a few times for lunch; the cafe is beautiful, set high on the mountain next to the Castle, with views over the entire area, and the food is incredible. Home-cooked goodness, a mixture of light bites and full on spicy lamb and rice (my personal favourite). If you're planning a trip to Kefalonia, it will not be complete without a trip to Kastro.
To get up to the cafe you go up some steps covered in plants and flowers...it feels a little like entering a secret garden. There are different levels and patios to sit on, our favourite spot was the main patio in front of the bar and kitchen...they had a huge fan there that was absolute heaven in the sweltering heat! As soon as you sit down the owners bring you big glasses and a jug of iced water, and they bring a new jug whenever the other one is getting empty. The service really is probably the best I've ever experienced, they just can't do enough for you!
