Restaurants in Kalamaki

Hi to all at Stani,

We are glad we tried Stani out. It was recommended to us by a couple who have been visiting Kalamaki for years. It was on a regular night (not a Greek night which we were also told was a great experience with dancing, fire and music!). We were made to feel very welcome and enjoyed some very good food and good service.
 
The staff wanted to know more about my i-phone which I was using as a camera out on our holiday. They seemed fascinated by it. I think they were hoping to get one soon!
 
A very pleasant evening and good quality food.
 
PS There is no rubbish as pictured in the photos from an earlier review. This must have been cleared and the restaurant looked nice and clean inside and out. Very nice decorative wall outside with gardens and water feature.
 
I think the owners hire the sunbeds out on the beach and they own the shop next door too.
 
Well worth a visit

Having seen the reviews and found ourselves near Stani's we thought we would try it.  We found it very ordinary, the food nothing special, too English!  But what really put us off was the state of the area behind the restaurant, when we went for a walk after the meal.  See the pictures, if it's like this, what's it like in the kitchen?  First and last time for us!!

Went here on the Sunday of our holiday, it was the Greek dance night. The food was very good, we had steak that was to die for and a meze that was fab!!! The owner and waiters were very friendly and made us very welcome! I have lived in Greece and traveled Greece for over 20yrs, I can honestly say this was one of the best Greek dancing I have ever seen!!! The dancers got some people up for a laugh and it was great fun! Highly recomended all round for food, entertainment and hospitality!! Thaks for a great night at Stani, love to all, the 3 ladies from Manchester xxxx

We did Greek night here last year. Food wise, it was ok, say 6/7 out of 10. Portion was abit small for me but quality good.

 However, enterainment wise Greek night was fantastic. I have not danced so long in many years. Really was a good laugh, if knackering after what seemed like 45 minutes!
 
Would do a gree night here again though with out dought.

We had lunch here one day, and enjoyed it so much, we returned on our second last evening, for dinner.  Lovely relaxed restaurant, great food and very reasonable.  We would highly recommend Stani, for lunch and dinner.

Spent a week in Kalamaki in the first of July, great place - fantastic to swim with Caretta Carette. I invited my 10 family members to Stanis to celebrate my 35 years  birthday. Fantastic food, fantastic view, fantastic service, all in all a great way to spend a birthday. Highly recomendable. Thanks to all at Stanis for a great evening. Flemming - Denmark

 Just got back from a week in Tsilivi in July.  We hired a car so we could go back to Kalamaki in the evening to visit a few fab restaurants.  Stani's is always one of my favorite restaurants.  The atmosphere is so relaxed and the view is fantastic,  Stani's definately make the best Mousaka on the Island! 

Thanks again Stani's as always the meals are always great

Brilliant yet again! Petro and the staff are just brilliant!
Great setting, great atmosphere, great food ..... just brilliant!
I'd give it 10/10 but even Gordon Ramsey would struggle to be perfect every time! 
Thanks again Petro, Dennis, Tassis, the chef, the lads ..... everybody concerned.
Hope to see you in September.
Oh... and Petro, the Gypsy's earrings aren't gold!

Visited Stani's 3 times during our visit (18/9/8 -25/9/8) for lunch and were never disappointed. Good menu, varied choice, great value & the house red wine is lovely! Only sorry that we missed the Greek Night.  Well worth a visit!

1st time that we have ate here in the many years in zante and must admit they are up there with the best. 8 of us ate here and found it great value as well as good quality. we had 4 starters plus bread, 7 mains 1 childs menu, 5 desserts and drinks and it totaled 94 euro. the staff were very friendly and polite and really made us feel at home. will definately go again

Lydia B          10/10

Still one of the best restaurants/tavernas on the island and the best location.  Lovely to see Pedros and all the staff again, always receive a warm welcome here.   We love coming to your restaurant, its so peaceful, friendly and relaxing and again was the first place we headed for when we arrived. Food is delicious and everything spotlessly clean, great atmosphere and we always enjoy the greek music playing in the background. Great to pop in of an afternoon too for a refreshing cold drink. We will see you all in a few weeks when we will be bringing more of the family/friends. Thanks again to you all..........Marie & Lydia x

Hi, just found this website and had to write a comment.  Don't know if you will remember us or not.  My husband and I first found this restaurant about 20years ago and for the next 5 years had holidays in Kalamaki which also involved many great meals and evenings in Stani. 

Thassos, Taki, Pedros and all the family were so very welcoming and we even one year stayed at Katerina appartments which were great. We are always so sad leaving at the end of our holidays.  
 
We are thinking of returning to the island next year for our Silver Wedding and would love to catch up with you all again.  Maybe even relive some of the fantastic times we had. 
 
Hope you and your families are all well and would love to hear from you.  My email address is janettehair@hotmail.com.

Hey everyone

This was the first restaurant we headed for on arriving in Kalamaki at the start of this month. Had a lovely lunch here on our first day, and the food was delicious - lovely to be remembered by the staff (think that may have been down to all the Greek dancing we did in June, - see the pics )
Thanks again for making us feel so welcome!
Hope you like the pictures, see you next time!

Well hello to the Lovely Stani Family, blast from the past.  Tassos and Pedro, I  remember you from quite a few years back, not sure if you remember me .  Remember your English friends Sam and Gary, hope they are still in touch.  I had the best time ever in Kalamaki, worked in Stani Bar around 1993 for a couple of summers, best times ever, best job, serve drinks and talk to holidaymakers, what a job!...Was a student at the time and went out each summer and worked in a few bars/restaurants, wasnt that good at the restaurant bit waitressing, got demoted to the bar.  Would love to hear from you, living in Australia now, been here for 6 years or so.  Planning trip to Scotland then Zantes next year, cant wait to be there. Hope all is good Barbara (Varvara)x

I have been visiting Zante now for 6 years and always visit Stani's.  As usual we had a fantastic time.  The food is always fantastic and really good value.  This year is the first time I have visted on Sunday night which is the greek night with dancing etc.  I really enjoyed it the atmosphere was really great.  During our visit this year it was during a heatwave, even the evenings were really hot, with Stani's being a seafront restaurant it was alot cooler than the other restaurants we visited.  The views are great, food always great, staff are the most friendly, and always create a relaxing fun night.  This is my favorite restaurant, if I get chance I sometimes even visit for a breakfast!
