“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 20, 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.

“Decent food, poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

This is a sweet little restaurant in a beautiful location on the beach. It is very popular and the food is good - but nothing special.
I was excited about dining here after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor but I was very disappointed. The service is awful. I enjoy a long leisurely meal but here we had to wait for over an hour for our bill. Service was definitely not provided with a smile, and in fact we felt ignored for most of the evening.
We did return to the Kalliozina to give the place a second chance, but sadly this experience was even worse than the first. A thumbs down from us :(
