The Maklithari Village Taverna is located in the traditional village of Makriotika, within the beautiful Pylaros Valley area of Kefalonia, and just 4 kms from Agia Efimia. The Taverna derives it's name from a large rock (known as Maklithari in Greek) which was once located a few metres further up the road and round which the villagers would gather of an evening for a chat. From this humble beginning it was a short step to providing
these people with food and entertainment. Needing better facilities the taverna moved to it's current location.
Now run by Petrangelos and family who have been welcoming guests to the Maklithari Taverna for a number of years. However, Petrangelos has been catering for both locals and holidaymakers for many years as he used to run the taverna next door to the Maklithari, which was re-opened as a coffee shop by the Municipality of Pylaros in 2007.
The Maklithari Taverna offers a good choice of home-made local dishes, grilled meats, salads and delicious ice cream if you still have room for a dessert! You can sit inside, on the veranda area outside the taverna or dine at one of the many tables in the village square. Wherever you choose the views down the valley towards Agia Efimia and the sea are beautiful.
The Maklithari Village Taverna is open evenings only.
Please come and visit us in our lovely village close to Agia Efimia. We look forward to welcoming you to our taverna.................
