Below is a list of the most common dishes served at tarvernas throughout Kefalonia. Greek cuisine has much in common with the food generally found in East Mediterranean countries. Meals are rich in vegatables and Greek food is considered to be healthy. According to the traditions of eastern cuisine most dishes are placed in the centre of the table.
