Great ice cream, great cocktails, great staff

We tried this bar on our second night, and then came back every night until we left! The staff are so friendly, and we chatted a lot with Ilias (sorry about the misspelling, I hope I'm right with the name). He made us feel very welcome and, after having told him about a problem we had at our hotel... read more

We first came across this bar when looking for a place to stop while cycling. Came back for a second time, owner very friendly indeed, cocktails and milkshakes nice. Free refills, crisps and peanuts! You can sit in the shade and look out at the sea.

The owners are very friendly, and always have time for a good conversation. The ice creams are very tasty!

We've visited calypso several times while we've been here and been greeted with beautiful hospitality. The staff always remember our names and make a fuss of our little ones. The large draught beers come in iced glasses and taste so sweet looking out to sea across the marina. The kids love the milkshakes which come with sparklers and fresh fruit.... More

Went there every afternoon for a gigantic fresh fruit with ice cream. Also enjoyed fresh strawberry and banana milkshakes. Very friendly. Lovely just to laze back in the chairs watching the world go by.

We've been coming to Kardamena for 8 years now as a couple for 7 and a family this year. This place is a favourite of ours and we usually visit here daily in the later afternoon for a mytho & lime to soak up the afternoon sun overlooking the harbour. The staff are so welcoming and remember us year after... More

We just got back from Kardamena early hours of today. Whilst there we visited the Calypso bar every night even though we were all inclusive with our hotel. A family run business who made us feel so welcome. After a couple of nights Ilias started sitting and chatting with us. Also Katerina, Paul, Maria and Nikos were a pleasure to... More

Calypso bar was one of our favourite stop offs while out for a walk in the day located right on the front overlooking the harbour. The bar lady Katarina was great for service full of character and very friendly. We went for cocktails one night and must say best cocktails I have ever had we will be back this summer.
