Description: A restaurant with a great reputation both in Greece and abroad. Our international visitors have spread our name all over Europe and we are mentioned in every tourist guide that involves Ithaca and Kioni. All our dishes are cooked with greek olive oil and the freshest ingredients. Our fish is provided by the local fishermen and our meat comes from the local market to support the local economy.

this is a very good restaurant, thoughit it is not a traditional greek tavern. I liked every plate I tasted. Everything was high quality and high standard.Even the burgers, which I normally never order in a restaurant were delicious. The fish, pasta and salads tasted great.
The best time to visit is at night, the menu list is limited during lunch.

We stayed in Kioni for a couple of weeks and ate here several times At lunch and at night it was busy. The food was lovely and the staff friendly and helpful. Sitting eating a meal and watching the boats in the harbour cannot be beaten. As a bonus any spare bread can be fed to the fish!

Calypso is located in a very pleasant position right by the small harbour in Kioni. The staff & owner are very friendly & we were very satisfied with the quality of the food. We had fresh sardines & can recommend them. Looking at the food being served to other diners I think it is of a consistently high quality.
The fact that the people with yachts moored in the harbour used this tavern would suggest it is the best in Kioni.

We stayed in kioni for a week and had the chance to visit Calypso several times. The food was always delicious and there was a big selection of dishes to choose from. The staff was very kind and helpful and we were offered a free dessert by the owner every time.All the tables were by the sea so the view was just great! We will definetely return to Calypso next time we visit Ithaca!

We stayed in Kioni for two weeks and ate down at t he harbour every night. We went to Calypso on our first evening and it soon became our favourite taverna and we went several times. Our favourite starter was the Kioni salad. Amazing! Very simple but delicious, lettuce walnuts figs and cheese, with a lovely dressing which we thought was balsamic vinegar. My favourite main meal was Kleftico, divine! Delicious chunks of tender lamb cooked in a parcel with opinions and potatoes. My husband's favourite was a veal dish cooked in orange and honey. The owner was delightful and gave us a free liqueur each night as he recognised us. The food was just that bit nicer than the other tavernas. If I went back to Ithaka I would definitely return to Kioni and Calypso. Sitting by the water in the evenings was very special.
