My partner Alan and I have just returned from Kalamaki and we loved it and especially yo yo's. We met Maria and her business partner Malcolm, we loved them both, so friendly.  The food was beautiful and malcolm makes great pies. We will definitely go back.

Been going to Kalamaki since 1999 and have always gone in Yoyos from it first opening.  The meals are brillient, especially when I ask for the smallest chicken or the smallest pig, Kathy always laughs and said I have no chance in getting through the chop which is the size of the plate.  We missed going last year but will make up for it this year in July.  Can't wait to see Kathy and others again.  We wonder if Fresco is still with them at their new abode.  We hope they are doing well.
Regards, Gail & Barry (Salford)

We ate at Yo-Yos two years ago and went back this time too. We were staying the other end of Kalamaki otherwise we would have had breakfast/lunch here everyday. Food is just perfect and the service nice and laid-back and relaxed. We had one evening meal here too and it was excellent too. So well done to all at this establishment and next time we visit Kalamaki we will definately eat here again.

 Just arrived back after spending 2 weeks in Kalamaki.  Went to see Tony and Maria quite a few times.  Great food here, good hospitality and good friends.  Keep up the good work Meg, you are a credit to Yo Yo`s, and not forgetting Christine.

Thanks to Tony and Maria for the use of the car and of course our cheap bill at the end of our meals, you certainly give us mates rates.
I would recommend Yo Yo`s to anybody visiting Kalamaki, the food is cooked from fresh, english bacon and sausage and all at a very good price.  Good all round British food.
Take care all of you and keep in touch.

Hello Tony & Maria.
Just a quick email to say good luck for the season. Don't work too hard, but I know you will.

Just a note to any potential holiday maker on their way to Kalamaki this year. If you have not been before, make sure you give Yo-Yos a try.

You will not be dissapointed.

There is a vast choice of food on the menu, with tastes to suit everyone. Truly excellent.

Best wishes
Wish I was There!

Hello I have just returned from my first holiday to the beautful island of Zante. I stayed in Kalamaki and found this wonderful restaurant/bar called Yo Yos on my second day. The food was great and the service very friendly. I did not bother to go anywhere else for my breakfast as theirs was the cheapest and best.  I would recomend a visit its easy to find on the main road towards the beach. Tony the boss is especially friendly.  Hope to see you all again soon.

Hi  I have been on holiday to Kalamaki and spent several evenings at Yo-Yo's cafe bar. Had lots of beer and plenty of laughs. Food very good especially the steak. Just like home from home even had a roast dinner on sunday. You can also access the internet here, get a great breakfast why go anywhere else. its just a stones throw from the beach.  Hope to see all the great staff again in September. Love to Maria especially x

 I have just returned from Zante. Has several meals at Yo-Yos in Kalamaki. Very good standard of food. Very reasonable. Lots of things going on Tv, Pool table etc well worth a visit.Just 2 minutes from the beach.

Karlie W          10/10

This place is great to chill on the way back from the beach or even to the beach, they do take away lunch boxes also.

It has a free book swap there too which helped.
Was made to feel very welcome.
The Fry Ups were the best!

well gotta say i wasnt impressed by this 1.  we decided 2 go 1 nite and ppl were walkin out because they had been waiting 45 mins 2 recieve drinks that they had 2 go 2 the bar 2 order in the first place never mind waiting 45 mins for there meal which we had 2 do fair enough if the resauraunt was buzy but it wasnt!!!. i must say once the meal had arrived the food was top notch but the service was terrible and 2 b honest it wasnt worth the wait
