Came here as a family of four. The big positives of which there were several were- the live Greek music (the only place we came across with live music), the beach front location, the traditional taverna atmosphere, the more authentic meze style menu, and the mixed grill, which was both delicious and vast. The service was also relatively friendly and low key and free melon was provided after the main course. However, all of this was slightly let down by some of the food - the mussaka and beef kleftico were ok but not of the same standard as other restaurants we tried in the town. Given the positives that the experience offered it is definitely worth a visit just for the music alone.Given the other good reviews this place has received, the slight issues we had with the food may just have been a temporary blip in service.

We tried to order a bacon roll at this restaurant for our youngest who had missed breakfast. Although they advertised a full english breakfast they had no bread. Someone with a bit of common sense would have popped to the local shop or even the restaurant next door but no... undaunted we got up and went next door!

Had the most amazing meze here. People are lovely and we were well looked after by Dimitris who also gave the birthday girl a delicious cake and bottle of wine for free. It's a must visit if your in kardamena, good prices, and right in the beach.

This, in my opinion, was one of the best restaurants that we ate in during our stay In Kardamena. The food was amazing and the portion sizes were big! After asking for our bill the owner brought us free desserts - chocolate cake, watermelon and greek style yoghurt with tomato jam - delicious! We were so full but couldn't resist!
Definitely worth a visit. There was also live greek music playing which added to the atmosphere. This was the only restaurant that I visited that did that.
