Maybe the least impressive place we eat in Kalamaki. But that does not say much! Greek food is wonderful, but we felt Merlis did not impress us THAT much. Still a nice place, with cheap food, and friendly staff.

My husband, daughter (Emily) and I stayed in an all inclusive resort but we're not overly impressed with the food and so head out every morning to Merlis. The two ladies who we saw every morning were lovely and my daughter always greeted them by running up to them with huge cuddles. The breakfast was lovely and the staff were... More

We went to this restaurant 3 times during our weeks stay and each time we were looked after and had an excellent meal each time. You are always given free bread and a variety of dips/spreads. The food is so tasty, plenty of it and value for money.

Tried this restaurant once when there was a special offer of 2 4 1. Unfortunately it was very quiet in there and also not many customers so there was no atmosphere. The food was ok as was the service but thats about all
