My husband and I stayed at Archipelagos and so much enjoyed the family atmosphere, family run restaurant, wonderful food and welcoming service. I would thoroughly recommend the taverna for those who enjoy being in the heart of village life.

We hired a car and drive everywhere on Kithnos. We came across this taverna while we were looking round Kanala, and it was the only one that seemed to be open. We only wanted drinks, beer and a coffee, but she didn't mind at all, my iced coffee was one of the best ever. The toilets were exceptionally clean and the taverna had free wifi. They displayed the local bus timetable which I thought was a very good idea for travellers.

Thank you Kallitsa and Dimitris, kyra Eleni and all the company there. It is really somehting else to be there and be even better than home. Those people are always smiling, their eyes are smiling.
The food there is perfect, though perfect is poor to describe what you feel with those flavours.
Real home made food made for feeding family, not customers or strangers, made with love and passion, made with MERAKI. Because they want to do so, they do not have to do so.
Much of the vegetables come from their own garden, the Mpostani, offering flavours and quality long forgotten to us city people. The menu varies from day to day, so you are never bored. if you have special needs or desires you can arrange everything with the lovely people owning and running the place.
Kallitsa is a one-of-a-kind personality. A real jewel to have serving you, talking to you, having fun, having chats, having quarrels, having a glass of wine, she is just amazing. We know we are loyals to her from thereafter. (Tip: listen to her suggestions on the menu, she knows what she is talking about)
Dimitris (Brother of Kallitsa) is there from morning to late night. Nice guy with good sense of humour. he controls the whole store just with the glimpse of his eye. He has a smile for everyone and a solution to every problem.
Both of them are amazing people, making you feel like family, having not met for a long time.
Above all, kyra Eleni, the Mother. She comes to your table if she has spare time and shows real unpretending interest on what you like on food, what not, she really wants to take care of you.
I cannot say much about the great Father of the family because did not meet him much. But by meeting his children I have one thing to say: Congratulations.
What I need to mention is that above and next to the taverna the family runs also studios to let for your vacation. Plain spacious rooms at a very low price.
I know that since last summer, I have become a live, permanent advertiser so try it you will become too.

Don't hesitate to taste everything in this family run greek tavern. Mr Kostas plants, his wife mrs Helene cooks,and their son Dimitris serves, you are in greek heaven(among twelve gods). Everything is fresh, they use only local products, clean and well presented dishes, many options. You are feeling all the time the well known greek hospitality, you can have lunch or dinner, even breakfast. No doubt the best place to eat real homemade greek food in Kythnos island and probably in the whole Cyclades!
Dimitris keep going on!

A nice family-run restaurant in the beautiful village of Kanala at Kythnos island.
We went to eat for lunch with our three kids.We ordered typical Greek dishes, like moussaka, green beans in red sauce, Greek salad, meat balls. Everything was nicely cooked. Most maid dishes were at 7 euros and in good quantity.The owner's son, Dimitris,is very friendly and helpful.
Most products come from their own garden. Very fresh!
