There's no shortage of very good tavernas in the Kamilari area - everyone has the requisite shady terrace, friendly service and pretty good food. This baseline defined, you're going to look for other factors to single out one particular establishment. In this case, and I...More

Really lovely restaurant on the edge of kamilari in a beautiful garden. The specials are displayed on a blackboard in the garden and owners can't do enough for you. Highly recommended.
