Friendly staff and good food

Been there several times during our stay in Kissamos. Service is excellent. Try meze mix and shrimps saganaki and you will not be disappointed:) Fruits and raki of course from the house after your dinner:)

As a chef, I go out of my way to find good local restaurants and this restaurant came recommended by locals, who outnumbered the tourists. lentil soup is an unusual dish to rave about but it was fantastic, a homemade broth and perfectly seasoned. Seafood cooked in ouzo was delicious and the boureki the best I had (and there was... More

We were in Kissamos and search a good location to eat, The Cellar had good reviews on TripAdvisor and was close to the beach, so we choose it. The location is very dusty barn (same look for the WC) and service is poor. We order Greek salad which was done with old vegetables (taste was awful for cucumbers and tomatoes)... More

We ate here most nights we stayed in the sunny bay hotel. In was included in our package but probably would have ate here anyway. Food was fresh and tasty and there was a lot of local dishes that we usually wouldn't have got to try. Reasonably priced drinks.

This was my best meal in the two weeks I spent in Greece, and maybe one of the best meals I had in my life. The restaurant is very spacious, right on the water with an unbeatable view of the ocean and the sound of the waves was music to our ears. The menu is big and detailed, we were... More

Food is outstanding and passionately prepared. Stelios and his family are interested in every aspect of your meal and your stay in Kissamos, whether you are eating, practising yoga, walking or cycling, no surprise people return time after time.

The Cellar is located on the seaside walk with a fantastic view on the sea. We had their breakfast buffet for two days. It consisted of fried eggs (sunny side up the first time and a rich omelette with cheese and sausages the second time), bread, croissants, cakes, soft Greek cheese, feta, tomatoes, olives, yoghurt, olive oil, nuts, honey, muesli,...

Very nice tavern in Kissamos with beautiful view on the sea. The stuff and owner are very friendly and helping with anything you need: food or going to visit other cities. The owner Stelios is a very nice and lovely person! All the stuff have got very good English so there was no issue to communicate. We've tried and liked... More

Amazing! First of all, waiters and the owner were very friendly and helping! We ate there 3 evenings, I tried moussaka, baked fish (wow, I still remember the amazing tomato sauce that came with it) and boureki (this was the least favourite of all), and my BF tried chicken souvlaki, sfakiano lamb ribs and souvlaki again (and it still was...
