The situation and the views from Dioskouri’s shady terrace are terrific. For cooler evenings there’s also a nice indoor space, with crammed bookshelves, pictures and a homely feeling like a large living-room.

We thought that the food here was very good indeed. The best feature is the list of specials, of which three to five (including a vegetarian option) are available each day. Beef stewed in tomato sauce, lamb in wine, and lamb kebabs were all excellent. The shrimps (actually large prawns) with spaghetti and a spicy tomato dressing were shell-sucking delicious. Carafes of the house wines are inexpensive and good. Starters are on the small side.

Kardamili isn’t short of good eating places and several have pleasant sea views. All of the above, combined with charming service, made this our favourite.

This place has fresh fish cooked perfectly by the chef of this lovely restaurant overlooking the bay in Kardimili. Highly recommend going there in the daytime so you can enjoy the spectacular views while enjoying delicious food!

The first taverna we came to when we visited Kardamyli several years ago. Situated on the hill and just a short walk on down to the village. The views of the little harbour and the sea are wonderful as are the sunsets. The owners are always pleased to see you and will bring out extra tables if they are full. The food is very good and it is a pleasure to sit and enjoy the view drinking the local wine and sampling the home grown olives.

This restaurant is little walk to the hill south of Kardamyli. This walk will reward you by perfect view over Kardamyli Bay, under pine trees. It is very good Greek food restaurant and even restaurant for fish. And prices are quite reasonable. Restaurant is often crowded, whic result with slower service, but with this view not a big problem.

A favourite restaurant high on a terrace overlooking the sea, but built around the pine trees. Excellent food and kind friendly service. Quite happy for you to just have a Greek salad at lunchtime on a hot day.
