We loved this place! The cakes are awesome - so good we went back a few days after our first visit. The gardens are beautiful and a lovely spot to spend an hour or so after having a walk around the castle.

All of the cakes were wonderful but we would particularly recommend the strawberry cake and the lime cheesecake. And the little coconut ice balls (served at the end with the bill) are great. Nicki the cook is doing an amazing job and I wish we could visit again.

Very highly recommended.

This place is really popular and with due cause. The view from the terrace out to the coast and the mountains is spectacular and the terrace itself is pretty too - it's stuffed full of lush green plants and brightly coloured flowers. When we visited it was a busy lunchtime and we had to wait a fair while for food but it's such a lovely calm spot to relax in, so don't rush your visit.

We tried some of the special which were very tasty and yes as other reviewers have mentioned the cheesecakes are really really good.

Terrific location next to the ancient castle. Incredible views across the island with mountains and the sea. Brilliant menu, especially the mezze, authentic and homemade Greek food. To top all that are the staff - they are marvellous. Oh, and the cat was great too. This place is a really that good.

Some places really do live up to the hyperbole and Kastro cafe is one of them. After an hour or so clambering over the ruins of Agios Georgios castle, we were in need of a drink and had spotted the cafe on the way up. So we stopped in, grabbed a table and watched the world go by for half an hour.

As soon as we sat down, we were presented with a jug of complimentary iced-water and four glasses. Our order was taken and within minutes we were treated to first class "frappes" and fruit juices, all at very reasonable prices. We eyed the delicious looking pastries and ice-creams with envy, but we were hesitant about ordering, as we didn’t want to ruin our lunch appetites. However, I couldn’t resist the “cheese pie”, which came as four small, delicious-triangles of fried filo-pastry; filled with a tasty, savoury-cheese filling - so we all had one and they were terrific.

The cafe itself was a veritable riot of colour from the masses of flowering plants. Service could not have been better, as it was during our entire stay in Kefalonia. I simply cannot recommend Kastro highly enough.

Me and my husband first came here in 2016 and when returning for our holiday this year, decided to drop by again for lunch. It didn’t disappoint, from the friendly welcome and water to delicious food to fill you up! The beautiful flowers and scenery make this also the place to visit. Do visit if you get the chance!
