Kennys Bar
(Bars in Kalamaki)
10/10 Gert L (February 15, 2013)
This bar was originally Claudes WMC owned by Brian aka Greengrass and his wife Sheila aka Gert. The majority of the comments relate to Claudes nd the great nihts we had with Gorgeous Gary the singer and the "crap" quizzes.

 Hi Karen,
    We spent two great weeks with your dad kenny and brother colin and Sue, hope you get to read this before you go out to see them as we are not sure what date colin said you were going. Just to  say that they seem to have got of to a flying start.  We had such a laugh and good time and also made good friends with them and we  found it hard to come home so much so we will be back to see them next june. Any one  going out to kalamaki we would def:  recommend  a trip to see Kenny, Colin and Sue.

What can i say, we went in with our "proper friends" and a week later we had even better friends.  Gary and Dawn are two of the nicest people we have met for a long time, kind, hospitable and most of all welcoming and know how to have a good laugh.  Nice bar and the service is second to none.  There's only three things left to say, thank you guys for making our holiday even more special, we now have even better "proper friends", and...oh yeah STU'S MOUNTAINS!! Cheers!

We really enjoyed our afternoons/evenings in Cactus Claudes.  Really friendly welcome by Dawn and Gaz, great live music by Sidshow Bob and Double Measures, brill quizzes (even if they did frustrate the hell out of us) and really nice atmosphere - we made lots of friends.  The drinks are delicious and very reasonably priced.  See you next year !!

HI GARY AND DAWN 
 I cant believe that 48 hours ago, we were sitting or falling over in your bar.
To anyone who has`nt visited this bar and if you want a genuine slice of Britain within the heart of Kalamaki, then this place is an absolute must.
Spot on entertainment and most importantly spot on hosts who go out of their way to make you feel welcome.
Hopefully trying to get out  there again in September, If not then roll on 2007.
 
Best wishes for the rest of the season,
Dinglebat Slaptiback, Mrs Badcrumble,Two spitting ducks and the Evil Giraffe.(Stoke Crew)

We've just left Kalamaki and are misssing Cactus Claudes already! We found the bar quite by accident but couldn't keep away, even though we were staying at the other side of Kalamaki!!  Gary, Dawn and Rhian are great hosts, the entertainment was first class and Rhian made the perfect babysitter!! From winning the intro quiz (with more than a little help!!) to beating Gary at darts - we enjoyed every minute.  Even worth a quick stop of a day to refresh you from a long walk!!  If your in Kalamki - Cactus Claudes is the place to go.
