My husband and I have just returned from 10 days of pure bliss in Kos and Kalymnos (as per the other review - Tripadvisor please change the spelling from an i to a y!).
We stayed in beautiful Emporios for a week and in the Themelina studios (review to follow) - and we had the best holiday ever! Part of what made it such a fantastic holiday was the food, drinks and service at Kastri. Maria is a marvellous cook - her food is exquisite and beats the food served at the other tavernas along the shore in Emporios.
A MUST try is Maria's Zuccini balls (yum, yum, yum) and her Moussaka is also to die for I hear (didn't get a around to trying that). There is always a variety of fresh fish to try - we had sea bass, white bait and on our last day sword fish was on the menu. Salads are great with the freshiest, most yummiest feta you'll ever taste, portions are generous and you will almost always be guaranteed to get some water melon after every meal (Greek custom).
We ate and drank here throughout most of our holiday - you are able to use the free sunbeds if you eat here and they are right by the sea - perfect :) Quite possibly one of the best restaurants I have ever been too with amazing views of the bay. It's great to spend all day flitting between having a dip in the clear sea and having a bite to eat / drink or an ice-cream in the shade along the shingle beach at one of Maria's shaded tables. Go on a Friday night and you'll even be treated to a street Greek night - with locals from all around descending upon Emporios.
We loved it here and we are in no doubt that we will holiday in Emporios again will most certainly be dining at Kastri - a real treat!
