We were a mixed age group from 4-54, had a wonderful evening. The food was traditional, very tasty and varied. Fabulous service with a smile and encouraged everyone to join in with the dancing ( but not pushy if you don't want to) We were asked if we would like to try anything different to the already plentiful meze and...

This is a fantastic restaurant located on the beach just outside Petra. If you ask for Meze you will get a lot of plates with small dishes of delicious Greek food! On one night there was too much noise for us due to a "Greek Evening". They served our dinner at a private table at the end of the pier... More

This is a great new addition to the beach below the Clara Hotel, with good access from the road to the newly cleared car park. Alternatively you could walk along the beach from Anaxos or follow the beach road out from Petra. We went towards the end of season when the weather was cold - temperature had dropped 15 degrees...

The restaurant is right on the beach with a lovely outlook. We went several times, once to a greek night where it poured with rain which was an experience (the staff made the chaoes really fun!) The food was excellent and the Keleftico was the best meal on the island! The staff are friendly and service is good, prices are... More
