We have visited the Merlis over several years and always found the staff to be extremely friendly and they always remember us even if we are just walking past. You can dine cheap by choosing one of their daily/nightly specials or from the menu, the quality is equally as good no matter how much you pay. They also serve breakfast which is the best we have had in Kalamaki. If you dine early or late they never rush you regardless of how busy they are they always have time to serve you properly and for a chat. We can't wait to see them all again in September.
