So sorry we saved our visit to Kanenas for our last night on Ithaca. Most enjoyable evening with great food, wine and friendly service. Sadly it was too windy to sit in the herb garden but still had a good table watching the world go...by on the front terrace. Had selection of Greek starters and really tasty tender Sofrito and an exceptionally good house red. Husband and wife owners make a great team - great chef and warm, genuine hospitality.More

We’ve just got back from this wonderful taverna and couldn’t be happier that we went. The food is absolutely fantastic - delicious, high quality, proper Greek food with wonderful flavours. The courgette croquettes; saganaki; sea bream were particularly delicious. If you eat on the terrace...outside you can look around the veg garden, lie in the hammock and enjoy the view. The waitress was so kind and helpful, even giving us a cutting of a local herb for us to take home. Best restaurant of our trip not doubt - we’ll be back!More

Cozy restaurant with a nice garden -surprise, they grow their own vegetables there- and delicious plates (saganaki is a must try, but ask the polite waitress for more suggestions). The portions are satisfying. To be revisited ☺

Amazing food and very friendly stuff. Don't miss the sofrito and onionpie. Reasonable prices taking into account the quality of the food and the service. Without doubts, the best place we had dinner in the island.

What a fantastic restaurant! We were greeted by the owner called Aphrodite who suggested we sit in the back in her vegetable and herb garden. What an idyllic spot. There was no menu just what was read out to us and we pretty much ordered...everything and we were not disappointed. All the food was outstanding, the service fantastic (with the son helping out) and it had a lovely traditional Greek feel about it all. I would highly recommend visiting Kanenas but i would suggest either calling the restaurant first if you are travelling by boat as its a long climb up the hill and Aphrodite could either get you a taxi or collect you herself. First class food and hospitality, so glad we did the climb up the hill to be rewarded with this fine establishment.More

We come to Ithaca every summer and we have dinner at Kanenas at least twice every year. Their food is genuine, traditional, but interpreted with love and attention to the quality of the ingredients, many of which come from the owners' garden or from the...local fishermen. All the personnel is extremely friendly and efficient. Highly recommended.More

Very good restaurant with many local plates. Sofrito and mprizolakia were our best choices but everything were good. The garden is very nice and quiet. The service was very good and fast.
