in august 2005 we went to zante and had many meals in katerina's kitchen. the food was lovely, the waiters were very friendly and polite. if there was a negative thing to say it would be that katerina should make her customers feel more comfortable and herself be a bit more welcomeing..... overall we had a fantastic holiday and would go back....
I ordered a mixed souvlaki here and got a pork one instead which was inedible. It was all gristle and swimming in fat. To be fair, my boyfriend enjoyed his meal and the service was good. Bit off the beaten track but peaceful for it.
We ate at three restaurants (which were only average) before stumbling accross Katerina's Kitchen. We found the food to be excellent, well presented & piping hot. The Spaghetti Carbonnara is to be recommended. It is baked in the oven and is very very tasty indeed. I would recommend this place to eat. PS Do not be put off by the waiter trying to get you into the restaurant (this happens in Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria etc - all you have to say is - I have eaten already and he will leave you alone!). Go on give it a try!
we ate on our first night after arriving at the elpida just a couple of doors away we went there as it was close to where we were staying and we were tired and just wanted a warm meal and then to bed. the food was ok and thats all i can say but then every night we passed the resturant the man was nearly begging us to go in, to be honest he was a pain in the a**e!!!!!. go at your peril!!!! he will not leave you alone if you have to walk past evey night!!!!!
We were staying at the Elpida hotel a couple of doors away from Katrina's Kitchen and decided to go here on the 1st night of our holiday as we were tired and hungry...BIG mistake...we (my partner and myself) ordered bacon and mushroom omlettes as we only wanted something light as it was late at night, but through the night i started to feel ill...was it the food, or the flight??? Every night that followed for 2 weeks we had to pass Katrina's kitchen to get to the main part of Alykanes village and every night we were hassled by the door man wanting us to eat there again, he was very pushy and i felt a little rude, we were offered discount and free bottles of wine to tempt us back in. Other guest's that i spoke to enjoyed their meals but some also found the door man rude and pushy...The door man expects you to eat here everynight...Enter at your peril!!
We stayed in the Plessas next door and gave in on the first night and was made to feel like a king by all the staff. The doorman was always pushy EVERY night but not annoyingly he knew when no meant no. First class highly recommended
food wasnt very good, very quiet,
If you are staying at the Elpida appartments, you have to walk past this restaurant to get to the main part of Alykanas.
Was recommended to eat here. On two separate occasions, we walked past & were pestered by a VERY pushy Greek Doorman hence to say we didn't bother returning & the Restaurant lost our custom to someone else.
My family & I ate at this taverna twice during our stay in Alikanas. We really enjoyed the food and the service was excellent.
We will definitely be eating here again when we vist next year!!!
We went on recommendation, particularly to sample their sole. An extremely warm welcome got the visit off to an excellent start and the food was good, but somehow it didn't fully come up to expectation(perhaps the recommendation had been a little over-exaggerated) and the portions seemed just a little lightweight compared to many other restaurants we visited. Some additional wine 'on the house' was greatefully received.
Please,please can I have the recipe for your lamb kleftiko I had three times in a row
Enjoy the charms of the waiter at the door. He makes up for the average quality of the food. It was overpriced. 2 course meal for three with some drinks, 49euros.
We tried this as we had always eaten in Alkyonis (see comments) Davina was there (Not the real one, see my comments from 2001 in Alkyonis) Food was good but definitely more expensive. Nice place tho and freindly.
Owned by fisherman Dennis who also owns the Medousa in Alikanas. Run by Siobhan, who previously has worked with her husband Giorgio in the Medousa and Alkionis restaurants. Menu is extensive, with seafood,of course, outstanding. Local wine in the jug VERY GOOD.
it was ok, the thing is now that Alikanas has more restaurants than 4-5 years ago, they are much of a muchness now wherever you go
