Lixouri by night…and a gourmet dinner!

We arrived early in the evening to our guesthouse at Lepeda, and after having a little rest, we put on our evening clothes and went to dine in Lixouri, in a gourmet restaurant, recommended by Kostas. It was situated at the port of the town.
 


The “YACHT CLUB” is a jewel/restaurant in Lixouri, as we found out. The aesthetic of the interior design is extremely sophisticated and minimalistic, while the tables outside the restaurant, with wonderful views to the port, are also very stylish. 
 


The owner, Mr. Dionysios Perdikis, and the chef Mr. Giorgos Spyropoulos have tried with love and effort to create a fantastic place, where the guests will enjoy not only the discreet hospitality, but also the quality they will discover in the Greek Gastronomy, through the excellent local products that are used to produce dishes with refined and very particular tastes, which one may accompany with the most exquisite wines of Kefalonia.   
 


We, while enjoying the night beauty of Lixouri’s Port and while watching the ferry sailing away towards Argostoli with all its lights on, tried
Kefalonitiki Capreze Salad with marinated cherry tomatoes, pesto of thyme and small balls of local Pretza cheese, Risotto with saffron and mussels, fresh bass fish, from the famous fish farms of Kefalonia, sauté, with fresh tomato and basil, wrapped in thin crust and also the specialty of the restaurant, bass fish Marine Yacht Club, marinated with aromas of orange, lemon and fennel.
We accompanied our refined and sophisticated dishes with Robola wine from the Sklavos Winery, which we were going to visit the next day, so as to have a secret glimpse of how Robola and other distinguished and exceptional wines, that are produced only in Kefalonia, are created, distilled and reach our tables eventually!
 


After our dinner, in a euphoric mood and having treasured unique experiences, during our trip to some of the most beautiful places of Paliki, we returned to our guesthouse for some rest.
We could already feel that the next day would be as interesting and fascinating as the one we had lived today!
