Fourth visit to Kalamaki, only discovered Melon Bar this year.  Went most evenings during our holiday in May.  Owners are very friendly and welcoming, lovely relaxed setting, not as noisy as some of the other bars in the resort.  Best Pina Colada in Kalamaki.!!  We are returning in May 2010, will definately return to Melon Bar.

Just returned from 2 weeks stay in Kalamaki, found the Melon Bar on the 2nd. night then spent every night there watching Euro 2008. Impecable service from ' Johnny Love ' the waiter and 'Lee' the 'NUTCASE' barman. Plenty of free shots too! all coupled with a good variety of music.They both work very hard to please so go along and give it a try. If you want a cold beer, the glasses come straight out of the freezer. BEST OF LUCK LADS, YAMASS!!!

We have just come back from Kalamaki and have had a great time. The Melon Bar is absolutely fantastic.

Yannis and Lee are just the best.
Oh and Hi to Vicky and Helen, how they can keep up with them is beyond me.
We have had some great nights in there and if any one is going over soon please pop in and say Hi.
The bar is sometimes missed because it is at the end of the main street but really well worth hunting out. 
Missing you both, and Chelsea and Barry say hi too.
Love to you all from Sharen Barry and Chelsea

Thank you

Possibly Melon Bar is one of the most stylish Bars around.  We visited every evening to be welcomed and often entertained by the quietly courteous bar owner Paddy and bonde bombshell Lisa, thank you you two, you made my holiday fun. We also met some fab people who had the same idea about the ambience of Melon-big hallo to Caroline and Willie,Natalie and David, Pete and Sharon

I enjoyed the range of music, comedy and visuals presented on the patio screen. Internet access and even a mobile charging service available, Melon Bar has it all.
Look forward to seeing you next season
Debra and Mandy

We thought we'd walked into someone's living room when we first arrived, but were made to feel so welcome in Melon Bar that we came back every night.
Met some great people - a bar like this attracts like minded folks, so you know it's going to be a good night.
Music ranges from the very chilled out to the positively boisterous (will send photos of the Hawaii 5-0 evening shortly!) whatever you're in the mood for!
Thanks for a great time Paddy and Lisa and Sammy, you made our holiday. Miss you loads!
lots of love, Caroline and Willie fae Leith xxx
