“A pleasant seaside restaurant”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

I had moussaka, my wife had beef stew (both very well cooked) and we shared a carafe of red wine. Complimentary halva, plus coffee and 5 star Metaxa completed the meal. The view, even (or perhaps especially) on a stormy evening, was spectacular. The service was a little erratic; perhaps there were more guests on that particular evening than expected. Certainly all the tables on the terrace were taken.

“Reliably good”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This is not necessarily the best restaurant in Kardamili, but it ticks several boxes that make it a reliably good place to eat.
One, the food is good, especially the fish that comes fresh daily from the quay below or Kalamata and is cooked simply. The moussaka is also excellent; and the local organic wine is a nice touch.
Two, good service, friendly and prompt even at the busiest times.
Three, a great location with beautiful views over Pigadouli Quay towards Meropi Island.
Four, the option of eating inside or outside, which, even in balmy Greece, is sometimes a welcome choice.
The Kardamili Map describes it as offering ‘Delectable delights, with sea views and sunsets.’ Quite right.

“Good value and good food”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Went to this restaurant late one night with several other couples who showed up at varied times. There was only one waiter but somehow he was able to keep up with a number of customers. Food was good and portions were ample The outside seating is right on the water and has beautiful views. The only negative were the many cats roaming on the patio.

“Loved the food & the location”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

We had a great time with a group of friends, the waiter was helpful and kind. (He even provided first aid to a friend of ours who fell on the way in, luckily it was nothing serious). As for the food, I would have to say that we've had perhaps one of the best fishes in a long time a '2kg synagrida'.

“Great restaurant with amazing view & lovely atmosphere!”
Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

The view is amazing, overlooking the small harbour of Kardamyli and the little island of Meropi. The restaurant has been renovated since the last time we visited, creating a lovely country style atmosphere. The service was was really good. The food was nice at reasonable prices, we really loved the 'kritharoto' orzotto with shrimps and the lemon mousse!!! Will definitely visit again
