Stopped for lunch on our last day on Ithaca and wished we'd come earlier on our stay. The seating in the garden to the rear of the restaurant is delightful. I had lamb chops and my companion chicken fillet with lemon sauce. Both were superb....We rounded the meal off with pannacotta with mulberries which was delicious. With a large bottle of still water and half a litre of beer the cost was only 40 Euros. A bargain for the quality of the food. Highly recommendedMore

delicious authentic Greek food in a lovely setting with a friendly service. Best meal yet in the Ionian and so reasonably priced. We highly recommend it and will come back to try their cookery classes.

By far the best food we’ve had on the island. Fantastic place, with a lovely courtyard garden filled with lime trees and lavender. The owner grows her own veg, rears her own lambs, makes her own mulberry syrup (delicious!) and was so friendly and lovely,...honestly couldn’t fault it. If you stay anywhere on Ithaca we strongly recommend you find the time to visit.More

Our first meal on the island. Charming service and good food. It was very quiet, probably because it was still so early in the holiday season.

We went two days running because we liked it so much. Superb fresh fish, perfectly cooked and super friendly service. Aphrodite went out of her way to make us welcome and even brought me a little dessert with a candle, and sang happy birthday to...me! Excellent value. Highly recommended.More

Superb setting in a tranquil garden with subtle music playing in the background. Unpretentious hostess, Aphriditi, is so welcoming making you feel that you are eating with family in their back garden. Excellent food, made with local produce, again unpretentious and refined! One of the...best places to eat in Ithaca!More

We had a fantastic lunch at Kanenas in Stavros. Delicious food including the most amazing fish, and the staff could not be more friendly and attentive. We thoroughly recommend. Thank you Aphrodite!!

Kanenas is like going to visit family/friends for dinner! Firstly Aphrodite is a great genuine person, kind and friendly. Secondly, the food was amazing. The ingredients burst with freshness. The assembly of the flavors and dishes are so original. I think the fresh fish recipe...and katsiki linguini is two of the best dishes I've ever had in 🇬🇷. Finally the restaurant has great decor, elegant touches, tons of character - and the music was perfect!More
