“We returned many times”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We stayed in Kioni for two weeks and ate down at t he harbour every night. We went to Calypso on our first evening and it soon became our favourite taverna and we went several times. Our favourite starter was the Kioni salad. Amazing! Very simple but delicious, lettuce walnuts figs and cheese, with a lovely dressing which we thought was balsamic vinegar. My favourite main meal was Kleftico, divine! Delicious chunks of tender lamb cooked in a parcel with opinions and potatoes. My husband's favourite was a veal dish cooked in orange and honey. The owner was delightful and gave us a free liqueur each night as he recognised us. The food was just that bit nicer than the other tavernas. If I went back to Ithaka I would definitely return to Kioni and Calypso. Sitting by the water in the evenings was very special.

“Very good location, satisfacory food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

For our Dinner we chose to eat sardines, mussels, shrimps, octopus. The octopus was excellent, the mussels were cooked with a tasty red sauce however the taste of sea coming from the mussels was covered by the sauce. The shrimps were ok and the sardines were quit tasteful. Generally we were satisfied although it was not an unforgetable Dinner. The location however is excellent and very romantic!!
