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.

Recommend the grilled squid or any seafood. Always a lovely meal, and that great view! Book for weekends.

Pick a table over the bay. Food a bit pricey but delicious. Especially the king prawns in chilli sauce.

Absolutely loved this restaurant, visited twice during my holiday. The food is fantastic and the view is amazing, can't fault either. The staff were friendly but the service can be a bit slow at times and the staff need to be a bit more attentive. Other than that, excellent!

This is an interesting review. The setting overlooking the sea is beautiful and the food was superb. Where it falls down was the service and rather unfriendly waiters plus the fact that as we sat outside - as dusk set in it became apparent I couldn't see what I was eating!! This rather important oversight was picked up by a... More
