Good food and great service

I am always skeptical of restaurants located in tourist areas. That being said, I was very pleased that we stopped at the Cellar for dinner one evening. They have a prime location on the waterfront with beautiful views. The owner is charming and speaks excellent English. The food was... read more

We have recived vouchers from our hotel: 9.99eur/per. I am usually sceptic about such solutions but this time it was a great idea. Food is really nice and its impossible to leave this place hungry. Starter, main dish and dessert was delicious:) highly recommended! Service is perfect too:-)

The best food place amongst others. fish and meat were very fresh and prepared while we waited. The menu was excellent with lots of choices and as usual we were given a free pudding and fruit and a small bottle of Raki. the local wines sold there were amazing.

This very popular restaurant has an interesting inside seating area, or outside, behind the wind break, or along the sea front with wonderful views. The very friendly owner & staff speak English, & are very attentive. There are all the traditional dishes, a couple more unusual like the delicioius Hondros, & the very best vegetarian Moussaka! Everything is beautifully cooked... More

Place looks the real authentic thing but is a bit of a tourist set up. Has been very popular over the years but we found the food average and a bit pricey. Service is good and quick but just a bit pretentious in a staged greek way??

The menu has a great selection to choose from. While we wanted some authentic Greek food, it also can get a little tiring day after day. Wound up ordering an artichoke dish that was excellent. One of my friends got spaghetti and loved it. Sitting on the patio and watching the day go by was very peaceful.

We ate here each night of our stay in Kissamos and loved it. The food was lovely. The atomosphere was also great. We will go back ther if we are in that area again.
