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.
