“Reputation deserved”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

We returned to Kastelorizo today to verify that it has remained on top. Indeed, it has. Every dish of the set menu was superb: from the excellent fresh salad to the aubergines, from the small fried shrimps to the mussels, to the main course--spaggeti with crabs! The free white wine remains first-class and so does the price: with 16 EUR per person you cannot go wrong in this pleasant environment with today's excellent service.

Very good service, very nice food. The view is awesome. You have to visit it. It is almost luxurious comparing to its prices.

“average, will consider returning”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

Having heard several recommendations but also lots of advertisement, I decided to visit Kastelirizo with my wife yesterday. The weather was beautiful, the position on the seaside was perfect, the expectations high. What could go wrong?
In brief it did not manage to cross the line of an average tavern despite the higher price (37€ / person with ouzo). To start with, the salad of boiled vegetables was old, brocoli remind us our blooming garden, covolfiore was cut /cleaned on top as it was old also. The rest was average but at least it was warm. The calamaris were well fried but a little too much or the oil was used many times. The result was bad digestion and quite some coke to help it. The same with the fried little fish, but this was one of the two only things that were above average. The other was the "kritharoto" with shrims, I would come back just for this. To make it brief, the "keftedes" were just average also if not lower, and the same stands for the octapus.
I must though mention the availability and gentleness of the personnel, they indeed were making the difference!
Note that these guys still allow smoking in half of the restaurant, making the selection of the table at least difficult.
