Best restaurant in kalamaki!

Food was fantastic, staff were extremely friendly, the home made olive oil was to die for! This restaurant is out the way however it was the best find! We went about 3/4 times. Definitely worth a visit!

We only found this brilliant place on our last night. It was our best meal of the 2 weeks a bit further to walk but well worth it. This is a typical Greek taverna and we enjoyed the atmosphere as well as the excellent food. The staff were very welcoming too it was such a shame we could not go... More

This must be one of the best restaurants near Zakinthos Town. The owner runs a tight ship and greats all the guests. We ate outside under a huge tree and an arbor with lights. Traditional Greek foods but well prepared and served. The owner made sure everyone was well cared for.

Read lots of good reviews on trip adviser for this place before we went on holiday. Was a little way from our apartments but the walk was well worth it. We were welcomed like old friends even though it was our first visit. The food was incredible each time we visited. Make sure you try the pitta bread, I have... More

We visited Michaelos twice during our visit to Kalamaki . It was the cheapest restaurant that we visited , but the price does not reflect the quality of the food. It is slightly out of the centre which may put some people off , but it is definitely worth the walk up the road. All the staff are very friendly... More

During my week stay in Kalamaki I ate at Michaelos twice following a recommendation from my friend Steve. The first time I left it a bit late and every table was occupied. People were queuing outside to get a table. For a restaurant not in the main part of the resort this speaks volumes re its popularity. Staff were extremely... More

We saw this restaurant on our travels and decided to try it and subsequently we went one more time before we left. This is a well run friendly restaurant with great staff, especially when they try to mimic the various british regional accents. On the first visit we had the usual starters and the homemade tomato soup was beautiful. For... More

We went here on our last night in Kalamaki. This was our third visit here. The food was as good as ever. Staff were friendly and we weren't rushed to complete our meal. The only reason I didn't give them 5 was the waiters kept saying things like "Lovely jubbly" and "Cheap as chips" in fake cockney accents. This came... More
