Great fun with pirates for waiters, great people, good portions. Love the chickens on the beach. Need transport to get back up the hill or a good pair of lungs.

Good simple food, nice sand/small stones beach, no see urchin, quite and chillout music? Do u need anything more? You can as well take the kayak free of charge if you eat at the restaurant.

This is the place that you dream to go back to once you return home. The food is great, the service is marvelous, the view couldn't get any better. Its great to come here after a day of climbing or just wonderful to come over and spend the day in the sea. This restaurant is so family friendly and just... More

We've been coming to Kalymnos for the last 9 years and found Exotic Ambeli in the third year - and we've come back every year since. It is our main reason to return to the island, knowing that the welcome we receive at Exotic Ambeli is absolutely genuine - and we feel part of the family. The food is freshly... More

Great place to relax in the sun after climbing, owners are very friendly and relaxed and the view from the beach is stunning! Food is also really good and freshly prepared (take your time, though :-))

Exotic Ambeli is far, far more than just a beach taverna. It is run by all the members of one family who do all the cooking, making up the drinks and delivering them with unbounded efficiency and flair. The food is some of the best we've ever had anywhere in Greece and the atmosphere and quirkiness of this "pirates paradise"... More

it came as a surprise, and perhaps after all, it was good we found this place almost the last day of our holidays, otherwise we would have stayed there all the time (and wouldn't have time to visit other places.. ;-P). the place is perfect, both hosts are more than nice :), great service, best rum&cola, great view..
