I met with 3 friends at Kalimera, and we all liked the food, yet agreed that the service requires some major adjustments.
Kalimera is a sea food restaurant, with Greek-Thai influences. The location is nice (although not right on the beach like other restaurants in the Jaffa harbor), the atmosphere was quiet and relaxing, and the music in the background was not disturbing.
The food we ordered was quite good, including mussels, shrimps, calamari and fish. It was fresh and interesting. The portions are of medium size (somewhere between first dish to main course), and good for sharing dishes with friends.
The service, however, was not good, although the waiters seemed to be trying... It took forever for the drinks to arrive any time we ordered, and on one occasion I got to wear a pastis drink for the rest of the evening because the waiter spilled it on me... Although it was not packed, three waiters waited on us, inefficiently.
Bottom line - seems like a good chef restaurant with a lousy restaurant manager... We might go back again, but take into consideration the service problems.
