Restaurant details
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Not everything good is on the waterfront. kalkanis has great grill meat dishes. always satisfying. The service staff are attentive and friendly and the food comes to the table quickly after ordering. It has a very local atmosphere with street side seating and a nice courtyard area also. Kalkanis is just behind the bay road, away from the hectic hustle of summer when you want a traditional place to eat.

I have been so many times at this restaurant and never get bored of it. There are so many dufferent plates to try that you have to go over and over again. Octapous stifado, kleftiko, fish soup, stuffed peppers...and so much more. Hard to say which is my favourite plate. Great quality, friendly service and good prices!!

For great food and an experience of a real family restaurant, this is the place to go. Mum cooks the kitchen dishes and father deals with the grill, while younger members of the family serve. The grills are outstanding and the selection from the kitchen means that choosing takes a long time! Octopus stifado takes some beating, or the local chicken stew. If you are there late you will see that the owners really do eat their own cooking, and there is a stream of locals eating at the restaurant or coming by for a takeaway.
