Just to add to my previous post I've been going to Kalamaki since 2000 and this is the only bad thing to happen to us. I would avoid this place like the plague there are much better bars and owners without this place. Hope it's taken over soon or shuts down.
was enjoying a nice family holiday, and enjoying a usual drink at apollon with yanni and Danielle, until a boy attacked my 14 year old grandson with one of yanni's pool cues nearly putting him in hospital as it was so vicious that the cue bust. The reason was he told the lad to apologise for skitting Danielle's daughter and calling another boy a fat get. My grandson managed to get one punch in. Before we stopped it. What did yanni say to my daughter in law after she offered to help with damages. She was told to f**k off. It turned out the other English boy is the grandson of his friend. So don't be fooled by this guy as long as it suits him and you pay that's fine. Do anything to protect yourself against his friends and he turns nasty.
fantastic little bar , friendly staff - Paul the meeter and greeter was lovely and so where the drinks
Very relaxed atmosphere with friendly owner and staff,Ended up here most nights perfect ending to the day
I hadn`t been back to Kalamaki in about 8 years when I returned last September and was really looking forward to see if Yiannis was still about. To my delight he was! I first met Yiannis in the early 90`s when he hired mopeds, sun loungers and worked for Dennis at Michealo`s. He is a very friendly man who can`t do enough for you and as someone has previously said, his bar is a delight to visit compared to some of the more noisy establishments. Even after 8 years Yiannis recognised me straight away and was as friendly as ever. I`m returning again this September, so keep an eye out for me Yiannis and this time dad`s coming too.
We went here last June and indeed again this year really is a nice place to relax, not the best prices but the cocktails are great all the same, only 1 small thing wheres kerry gone!!? Would have been lovely to see her again!!
Yiannis is an absolute doll, and a great host. I can't wait to sit at your bar and see you again in April.
Wow what a bar! Nice and quiet and a place to relax in toliets were very clean (the cleanest by far that we saw). Cocktails were the best in Zante.

Sarah and I came to Kalamaki in August, and found the Apollon Bar on our second night, and found it is probably the friendliest bar in Kalamaki. Thanks to Yianni and Bia for a wonderful time.
Kevin & Sarah Dutton
