Visited this bar a couple of times last summer. I fail to see what the big deal is... how can you chill with the noise coming from the street and the hotel directly opposite? All seems a bit "emperor's clothes" to me with follow the leader customers duping themselves and each other into a false impression. The owner Kevin always joining in or interupting customer's conversations. Oh well. Each to their own I suppose.
Still the best bar in the resort with the most helpful owner nothing is to much trouble for kev all the best see you end of august brian and penny
see you on 17/6 hopefully as you open if flights on time can;t wait see you then brian and penny
Will hopefully be out in 2 weeks for one of your cooool Mythos. I'm the advance party ahead of Penny and Brian and Sheila.
I'll bring some Black pudding with me too.
See you soon.
. Cracking chill-out bar, great host in kev, really frendly and has time for everyone plus when he has a chat with you, he listens with GENUINE interest(not like some who just go through the motions), Kev plays some great music,all types. was there last september and will be back again this year, can't wait!

Hello and a Happy New Year to all my friends on Just Zante and All my friends who visited my bar last season, by friends i mean customers.
Merry Christmas to all my customers old and new and a big thank you for making season 2009 such a great one, i loved every minute of it and looking forward to seeing you all in 2010 but to keep up with what i'm doing during winter and to start getting excited about your holidays you can read my blog and keep in touch through my new e-mail address which is on my blog somewhere LOL
We only managed two visits to the Oceanic however, they were both really enjoyable.
There were several days between visits but Kevin to my amazement remembered what we had to drink.
This is a great place for Chillin out, with a really friendly host and plenty of other Customers willing to have a chat.
My wife Anita loved the Lemon Cheesecake cocktails and says she has never tasted anything like them.
We plan to visit again next year and we will be paying a lot more than two trips to the best bar in Kalamaki.
Several great evenings in Oceanic again, mmmmmm, that Lemon Cheesecake cocktail was deeeeelicious, and the Comfortably Numb pretty damn good tooWill be back for more next month, just hoping you can get the patio heaters working
Just a note to say thank you for being such a great host for the two weeks we were with you
There are few better places to get stuck during a storm - we'll try and remember the black pudding for next year.
Hope your birthday bash goes well next week.
Best wishes for next season - already counting down the days til we're back.
Andrew and Sheila Hubble
Me & hubby had fab evenings here in May thanks Kev.
The Oceanic Bar has to be 'the place' to hang out in Kalamaki. A mix of convivial company, good conversation and first class service have to be the main reasons for anyone venturing for an excellent night out. Kevin is the perfect and most attentive host and his partner Helen, the hostess with the mostess whose stunning personality and humour make any evening at Oceanic a memorable one.
I would like to thank all the customers and friends at the Oceanic for a fantastic birthday. I had a brilliant night and it will be a birthday I will never forget. I would like to thank my Kev for organising everything and making it so special.
