While on holiday we had spotted this restaurant and decided to give it a try due to the spectacular views over looking the sea and also there was a variety on the menu. When we arrived at the restaurant we were not even greeted by any staff and went off to seat ourselves. We waited for about 15 minutes before... More

This restaurant perches on the hillside overlooking the bay so it's trump card is the stunning views. You can't beat a table looking out to sea as the sun goes down - very romantic! The food isn't quite so stunning but excellent none the less. This is a massive place so it would be amazing if they could pull off... More

My friend and I visited this restaurant several times during our stay for both lunch and evening meals. All of our meals were absolutely delicious. The staff were all friendly and the service was quick. Would highly recommend for the amazing food and the beautiful view

I had lunch here with my family on two occasions during our holiday. The food is excellent, the service prompt and friendly. The setting is just stunning, with picture-postcard views over the bay. Highly recommended.

We visited the Kalamies Restaurant on two occasions; the first time, there were 8 of us and although the food was lovely (had the fish meze.. don't eat for hours beforehand!), the waiters are very grumpy and service was very slow (you have to go and find them sometimes and the restaurant wasn't that busy). The second visit, it was... More

Everything was really fresh and tasty. A good selection of seafood was served. Salad and normal meze items. Nice open area overlooking beach. I'd definitely return.

Kalamies is a Cyprus institution and should be visited at all costs when in Protaras. Fantastic seafood - freshly caught on the day. Ask to choose your fish/seafood. You can ask for things to be cooked how you like - fried, boiled, chargrilled. Traditionally best option is of course chargrilling and Kalamies really know how to get this right so... More

Never ceases to amaze! The fried baby squid is a must to try along with the fresh grilled octopus. Book a table at the lower deck for more romantic sea views during sunset.
