“Loved it”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

I've eaten at Gialos for three years, but this year I thought it became really special. Over three weeks, I've dined there at least twenty times. First of all, the staff is very friendly and service minded. This goes all the way from taking your order to payment. I never really know what to order, because IMO greek food is generally quite boring. Ask the owner, he might know what is best for the day. My favourite is the lamb, the rabbit (not always available) came close. The pizza is the best I've eaten in the Mediterreanean area. I recommend ordering potatoes instead of fries, it just goes better with most dishes.

“Not great”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

Sorry to say Sunday lunch today was a disappointment. Loved the location but the staff were officious & the food poorly prepared. Zucchini fritters were undercooked and contained too much flour, the lamb in lemon was so fatty and still tasted bland, the stuffed tomato was dull, the baikclava was the saving grace. Sorry if this Kardamyli's 4th best eating place the standard is not set very high!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

Found this fabulous beach-front taverna last year and couldn't wait to return. Wonderful family run restaurant, amazing home-cooked food and lovely, friendly staff and host - Giorgo. Great setting, stunning views - very romantic! Can't thank them enough for making our holiday so special.

“A beautiful evening!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

We visited Mani last week and the last days we found Gialos in Kardamili - Good environment, positive people always with a smile and the food was amazing. We tried all most everything for the menu, so happy to find a place like that!!! Thank you, Giorgo!
