We hadn't made a reservation, and they were fully booked but they let us have an outside table. The first surprise was no clipped on paper table cloths, which are almost ubiquitous in greek resort restaurants. Polished wooden tables made for a much better dining atmosphere. We were initially served raki with bread, tomatoes and olives which was a pleasant welcome. We both chose pork medallions as our main dish which was served in a sauce with rice. The sauce was outstanding and the meat tender and slightly pink. No chewy overcooked pork here. It was gorgeous and there was a good sized portion of it. After the main course we were served with a complimentary dessert with a dessert red wine which was an unexpected treat. I ordered an expresso to finish which was a great end to the meal. Anyone visiting Kamari should not miss out on taking a meal or two in this superb taverna. There are inside tables which are less in demand but outside has the best atmosphere.

Away from the busy tourist strip with 100 of tavernas offering the same stuff you get tired very fast. Here you can get gourmet style recipes with unusual herbs and combination of meat, seafood, rice dishes... Whatever we had on our 2 visits was a original culinary suprise. The prices were suprisingly lower than the usual tavernas. Definitely a local's best kept secret !!!

This is a lovely place to eat and deserves its high rating. Having been to see the sunset in Thira we returned and hoped to just turn up and get a table at 930pm.We were lucky and a table was free inside. Free olives, tomatoes and Raki were provided. We ordered the stuffed mushrooms to share which were very nice. For main course we really enjoyed the chicken in honey and the meat balls on pitta. A complimentary traditional cake and desert wine finished off the meal. With a litre of water, a Mythos and half a litre of wine we were charged 33 Euros. Outstanding value and quality.

This restaurant caters for the local market and works all year round. It is by miles better than anything the Kamari tourist strip has to offer. Highly recommended! Greeted with a bottle of raki on arrival and a desert on the house was just a bonus!
