Visited here a few times with my partner. Slush puppies were lovely as were the cocktails. We were given crisps and nuts with our drinks, which is always a nice bonus! Anywhere that gives me free crisps when I order a drink is a definite winner in my eyes!! Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Would definitely return.

A very nice place for cocktails or ice cream at the harbour area of the city. Almost all drinks and portions are yours for 5€. Non-alcoholic drinks for kids, potato chips and nuts served with cocktails. They know the variations of the drinks and you get to choose the style you prefer.

View: Glorious seafront. Service: Could have been a bit quicker, but very friendly and courteous. Food: This is the ONLY place to have an ice cream in Kardamena! Seriously, we went twice, and it didn't disappoint. Very good value for money and a huge variety of sundaes, milkshakes, cocktails etc. YUMMY! The pic is a vanilla milkshake.

We had about 30 minutes to break until our bus came so we decided to see if Calypso was as good as claimed. I had a strawberry daiquiri which was a bit bland. Was a bit watery. Gin tonic was good/normal. The service was excellent. Nice ladies; mother and daughter. Very friendly, helpful and fast. Price was good. Maybe €5... More
