Picnic Kefalonia Review

Kefalonia is famed for their heart poundingly gorgeous beaches – Myrtos Beach in the region of Pylaros is a prime example of one. Wikipedia tells me that it’s in the north-west of Kefalonia island, in the Ionian Sea of Greece. It’s huddled between the bed of two gargantuan mountains named Agia Dynati and Kalon Oros. Of course we wanted to see it, so we made our way up from Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia where we were staying in our Kia Picanto which feels like it’s made of foil. Really. Small beater cars rule the roost here, you really don’t need luxury when you’re driving on gravelly roads around mountain tops where goats have right of way. On the way there, we stopped at Picnic, a family run restaurant with a kitchen that delivers some home-spun goodness that you can inhale in their terrace. There’s coffee, juices, breakfasts, salads and of course lashings of feta.

Mango jucie €4 yes please.

The boss goes for an omelette €8 made with local free range eggs stuffed with spinach, feta and tomatoes, there’s also a rustically hewn salad on the side. Everything comes with salad on the side here.

I order the bacon roll €8 with scrambled eggs that’s stuffed in seed flecked brown roll. It’s blissfully simple and completely finishable.


When did I go? Sept 2018
The damage: Expect to pay €12-15 per head with a juice.  
The good: They looked after us here and we left happier than when we came in. Why? Because they do the simple things really well. I’d happy come back for breakfast again.
The bad: Nothing to report!
Rating: 3.5/5
Would I go again? I come here again. if I’m passing.
