“The worst meal i've ever had !!!!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2010

Where do i start - Petrino's is the worst meal i have ever had. We were talked into going to Petrinos by the waiter outside - a greek guy in his 50's with a teddyboy quiff with all the charm. To be fair the restaurant was full and so we went inside and asked for a meze for two people which we'd had on previous evenings at other restaurants - namely Alexanders and Nichteri which were lovely. We waited an hour and a half for our food and when it finally arrived the zucchini, egg plant, courgettes were in a deep fat fried batter with nothing inside the batter and we had three plates of it presented to use. We broke open the batter and the only thing inside it was batter and greasy fat. We called the waiter over - bald headed guy with a squint and complained and he said we've always served it like that for 15 years. I said i've eaten food for 39 years and have never tasted food like this - absolutely revolting. Next night we walked past this restaurant and it was empty. This place should be closed down. Avoid avoid avoid.

“Very good restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2010

I visited Petrino both times that I have been in Kamari for vacation in summer 2006 and last summer. Both of the times, the food was very very good, the service was quick and very friendly and I can say that it was a good experience. I recommend this restaurant. Very nice and quiet garden!

“Petrino's Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2009

This restaurant is a little gem and should be on everyone's "must visit" list. My daughter and I dined there twice and both times could not resist the fried aubergine starter which made use of local "white" aubergine which is just delicious. The food was hot, fresh, superbly cooked and served by attentive and educated waiters who knew their products. Free wine was a bonus (just local white but perfectly quaffable) and the ambience lovely. We really do recommend this restaurant if you're visiting Kamari
