Delicious fish

Fantastic fish served by kg. We ordered dorata (0,5 kg a single fish), grilled, it tasted very good. It comes with a delicious Papadarkis Salad. Fish, salad, 0,5 liter white wine, water, French fries for € 34,10, it is worth it.

We ate at Papadaki's several times during our recent stay in Kissamos. The food was excellent. The Stifado was the best I have ever had (yes, I have eaten quite a few in my time - if you could see me in profile, you'd be able to tell!). Baked fish was a little salty for my wife's palate, but that's... More

I have visited this restaurant twice. While the service is generally friendly and efficient, I found the quality of cooking is quite poor (or average at best) My first meal (2 days ago) was red snapper fish. I still wonder if served fish was really the snapper (it came in much bigger size than I expected), and the cooking was... More

We weren't very impressed by this restaurant for three main reasons: really slow service (and maybe a bit not customer oriented), average food (tzatziki was sour) and not very hygienic if you take a look at the fridges where food is stored. They brought us bread we didn't order and we thought it was on the house, but surprise, we've... More

We were looking for a restaurant for having lunch and then I came to the last restaurant at the end of the street. I wanted to eat fried calamari with fresh squid. The waiter who was in front of the restaurant invited us to his kitchen and showed us fresh fish, octopus, and squid. I ordered fried calamari and it... More

Nice people run this tavern. You can expect quick service and good portions. Greek salad was the biggest we ever had. Nice dessert from the house at the end. Reasonable prices.

This restaurant was recommended by the owner of the hotel where we stayed for a night. It is a restaurant with a long tradition. We had a Greek salad and red mullets. The food was very tasty and well presented. The view was fantastic. The price was reasonable. Unfortunately the service was extremely slow and very chaotic.

Taverna Papadakis was recommended by a local shop owner as being the oldest taverna in Kissamos. THE GOOD: The view of the bay from our table was beautiful. The portions were very generous. The food quality was okay,...nothing spectacular, the white house wine was disgusting. THE BAD: The young waiter is in need of some training,....after we finished our meals,,...the... More

Friendly attentive staff and very nice food. You also get the option to choose your seafood before it is cooked. Very much worth a visit.
