Tasteful

We had a tasteful lunch at Taverna Kalymnos. It was rather quiet since we were there for lunch and we sat at one of the few tables outside so I am unable to comment much on the atmosphere. The service was good and I strongly recommend the mousakka which is quiet different from the Turkish version.

Years ago we ate at this place and now, that we were in the area felt like paying another visit. For two days I tried to call the telephone number published: I was immediately led to someone's (different number!) combox, nobody ever replied. After the fifth call I left a message with my telephone number, asking to call back for... More

Went with some friend to this restaurant without knowing that this problems would occur: 1) 2/4 plate arrived on time 2) 1/4 plate was the wrong one 3) the same which was the wrong one caused me an indigestion (impossibility to go working the next day) I'll never go to this place and highly recommand to do the same!!!!

You can feel a little bit of greece inside. The food is decent and the interior design is quite nice. The staff is OK, but not very friendly. I would go there once again with friends.

We had booked a table for 8 for lunch for a group of Greek friends and we were looking forward to our Greek lunch in Zurich. Arrangements were made directly with the owner of the Taverna. When we arrived there was no table ready for us, and no note of our reservation. There was however space, so the waiter put... More
