We ate at Votsolo multiple times throughout our stay at Emelisse and each meal was brilliant. We ate lunches and dinners and the menus for both offered a great choice. The bar has a great choice of cocktails and wines, the bar staff were very...good at recommending cocktails for us too. The service was amazing, every member of staff was helpful and attentive. Members of our extended group have food allergies and these were handled with no issue at all.More

Votsalo is the restaurant at Hotel Emelisse. We ate here 3 nights over our 14 night stay because after a day out it was more convenient than going into Fiscardo. It claims to be “fine dining”. We had better food and better value in Fiscardo...(namely Iridas and Tassia) What Votsalo does have is an incredible view and on our third visit we were shown to the “best” table. Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter what the setting is, how good the food or how much you spend on a bottle of wine, if you’re surrounded by young families it spoils the experience somewhat. Better table management might help. Votsalo is first and foremost a hotel restaurant and you must be prepared to share your space with young children who don’t always sit quietly. The lunch menu is excellent and very good value, even if kids are running round enjoying themselves. There’s a time and a place…….More

We stayed for 8 nights at the hotel where Votsalo is located. This is where we had the most amazing meals in Fiskardo. The restaurant is absolutely fantastic and the compliment goes to the chef , Maria, and her team ( Vicky, Efi , to...name a few) . Maria has a unique twist on the greek receipes. Flavors and the textures are incredible. The Taramasalata is just like a veloute , the crudo , fish , octopus, the unbelievable Backlava ( light and flacky) , Orzo Risoto with shrimp…. A simple tomato salad with rusk bread is an experience! Just came back and wish I could have all those dishes. On top of that , the most amazing views ! Highly recommend!More

I was expecting way more from a 5-star hotel restaurant. The atmosphere and views are stunning, there’s a sunset deck that offers a privileged view of Lefkada and Ionian sea. The food on the other hand was average and had nothing special. We ordered 2...starter and 2 mains, all were OK and definitely didn’t justify the price (€150 with 2 glasses of wine). Service was friendly, but still not worth the price.More

We had a lovely dinner at sunset. Food is amazing! We ate the risotto, sea bas and the eggplant dip which was delicious. Service was great. The view is absolutely insane! Don’t miss this place

Great experience at Emelisse Hotel. A big wine cart with a grand variety of wines, excellent attending, and a superb view of the Kefalonian North Bay. Dinner at the deck was amazing, with an exquisite quality of food.

Beautiful restaurant at the Emelisse 5* Resort. Staff hwere so helpful and friendly to our one year old who became “friends” with one of them throughout our stay. They provide child portions of any of the pastas or chicken nuggets and charge around €10. Portions...aren’t huge but some really tasty and healthy dishes. My favourite was the lamb burger for dinner and veggie wrap with salad for lunch. The mussels aren’t filling and not like you’d get in the UK or France so wouldn’t recommend that dish.More

Beautiful setting overlooking the infinity pool and sea, with a serene chilled vibe. Fabulous in the evening with setting sun reflecting on the pool and sea. Food is a cut above anything else in Fiscardo - beautiful presentation and delicious flavours. (But more expensive too)....The lunch time specials of moussaka , ratatouille and beef stew were superb. Also highly recommend calamari and prawn saganaki. The service is highly attentive and top class. Made us feel like vips!More

Excellent service and a wonderful setting. This year the food is much improved on last year although the menu remains fairly similar. Best choices include veggie burger, chicken breast, deconstructed lemon cheesecake

Wow, the views from this restaurant just outside of Fiscardo are simply amazing. The best part is that the service and food are equally as stunning. If you are looking for a truly memorable evening or lunch then I throughly recommend Votsalo. The menu is...different between lunch and dinner and both are lovely so you may find yourself having to try both. If you do you won’t be disappointed with either. Service levels are exceptional just to top it all off.More

Exquisite meal. The best I've had since before the pandemic. We had beef carpaccio, scallops, a mango and crayfish salad, niocci and lobster pasta. All were divine. The dessert special of the day was a to-die-for banana mousse. Service and ambience were unbeatable too. I...thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience.More

Really stunning restaurant overlooking sea. Food was good - a mix of the Kefalonian style more prevalent down in Fiskardo on the harbourfront, and some comfort classics like burgers done nicely.
