We visited Kalimera as a group of four as we had heard good things about the Greek food in the area. We were initially unsure about which place to choose to eat eat but the delicious smells that were coming out of the restaurant drew us in. Definitely a more informal dining experience than the other Greek restaurants close by... More

We've tasted much nicer gyros/souvlaki elsewhere, not sure why its rated so high. We both ate the pork gyros souvlaki but couldn't tell what meat we were actually eating; not only was it too salty but its so over seasoned with that typical gyros seasoning that it doesn't allow the meat to be tasted properly.

Kalimera always delivers. It offers fast fresh and great tasting souva's, salads, skewers and platters. I have only been at lunchtime and the place is always buzzing. Well worth a visit, more thsan once!

I have no idea how this restaurant got so many positive reviews and good pictures. They only had two tables in the restaurant and they some how managed to lose my order. I then got served cold old chips with one half of a slice of off tomato. I'd give the place a miss as their are loads of better... More

Went for lunch with my better half while in the area. Loved the style the food is served. Had the lamb platter and absolutely loved it. A must try when you are in the area.

If you love traditional and I mean modern/traditional GREEK souvlaki then this is the place. in greece souvo's are made with pork and are smaller , stuffed with tomato onions and chips. So as Aussies we are not used to it.

Sorry guys. Both my wife and I were disappointed with the gyros. We ordered chicken. It needs lettuce as an inclusion. Maybe traditional gyros doesn't have lettuce? Only had tomato. Chicken quality was just ok. Nothing special. Lamb is also minced not cooked on charcoal. Won't be back. Orexi 2 doors down is much better. Lamb on Chapel 100 times... More

Kalimera is a very nice place - staff is extraordinary friendly, interior is pleasant (remains an old style family kitchen) and food is excellent. You can sit outside or take a small or large table inside. Menu is simple but has a lot of variants - try a platter of a lamb or pork souvlaki, it is incredible tasty. Portions... More

First time visiting this side of town and kalimera was recommended as the best place to eat. Overly busy and great atmosphere however the food was the biggest let down. I literally ordered and by the time I sat down the food was on the table. Makes me think the plates are premade or meat is already sliced off the... More
