“One of best in Makry-Gialos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We stayed in Makry-Gialos for 1 week and visited a different restaurant each night. We had a late dinner at Kalliotzina with our two teenagers. It is one of the best restaurants in the area (the other one being Dragon's Cave). We really enjoyed the setting (seaside, under olive trees) but also the home made food. It looks like it is run by a large family, from servers to the cooks.

Greek tavernas tend to offer the same type of food, but this one really was tastier than the others.

Beware: parking is scarce so you have to leave your car by the busy, narrow road.

“OK, not anything special compared with other nearby taverns”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We went to Kalliotzina for lunch.
The setting is nice, overlooking the sea, but this is more or less common in the area.
Service was fast but rather detached.
We had three main dishes , moussaka - soutzoukakia - stifado beef, and a vlita salad.
The dishes were good, nothing to reflect the opinions in other reviews though. Some were cooked at least on day before.
Prices were normal, although servings were smaller that usual.
Due to the positive reviews this place gets crowdy and it may be difficult to get a table for dinner.
If this is the case, the next taverna down the street is a good alternative if you don't like to get into your car again. Otherwise, make reservations by phone in advance!

“Exceptional meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We had a great meal with a variety of Greek specialties. The environment was great although it was a very hot day. We ate under the big trees and the view as well as the environment were great.
All the dishes were very tasty. The Greek moussaka, the giant beans, the salads, the fish, all were exceptional. The truth is that I remembered my mothers' cooking!
Anyway, although we were 12 persons in a table the service was very quick and kind. Thank you guys!

“A typical Greek night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Spent an evening at this fabulous resaurant. The food was excellent and plentiful. The service was friendly and efficient. On Wednesday and Friday you can enjoy live Greek music and dancing which the locals are very happy for you to join in. The retaurant is set right next to ocean with stunning views. Well worth the effort to find in a quiet village with very friendly people.
