We have been going to Kalamaki since 1997 (when I was 4 years old). Kalamaki has never been the same without Derek and Veronica, hope they're both well, all the very best! Has been and always will be the best food in Kalamaki! Mandy, Paul, Liam and Hannah O'Neill
Hi Veronica and Derrick, I sincerely hope you are still in Kalamaki when I come at the end of May!!!! Remember when I brought you bar towels, beer mats and big spoons??? Any requests this time? you will meet my daughter and my adorable grandson Elliott who is 4 years old. I hope you are both keeping well ans still enjoying your "beautiful island" as you always refer to it. Love Angie Bannister
Sadly Veronica and Derek were not in Kalamaki due to health reasons when we arrived. Kalamaki was not the same. Lighthouse was so special and will always have fond memories. We saw Adie and durim and they are both well. Light House will still get a 10/10 score from me and always will.
The Lighthouse in Kalimaki is the best restaurant that me and Ron have been to in all the years we have travelled. Veronica Derek, and their Staff were very welcoming, the food excellent and the atmosphere calming. We will be definately going back. Jenny & Ronnie (Liverpool)

Not been able to get to Kalamaki this year much to my disappointment due to unforeseen circumstances that have happened this year. Not sure whether Veronica and Derek read these reviews, but really, really hope this is not their final year and they stay another one so I may get to see them and taste their tasty food next year. Purrrllllleeeeaasse!!
My favourite place for breakfast in zante! Dereck and Veronica are the best hosts and the food is lovely. I would also recommend this place for friday night fish and chips (the best i have ever tasted). I will be back in 2010 and will look forward to it

Derek and Veronica
Thanks again for yet more wonderful breakfasts. We didn't make it for the Sunday roast but I'm told it is up to its usual high standard.
Dear readers, the big breakfast is spot on (personal experience) and well recommended.
Hope to see you all next year. Stay well.

We Went to the Lighthouse as we were invited to a Birthday Party here. The food was very tasty. I had the Fish and Chips which they served with Salad. It was very nice to have Home-made chips!!! The Atmosphere here is very nice and the staff are excellent!!
Me and my husband david were in kalamaki from june 27th till 11th july and we ate at the lighthouse nearlly every day.The food was out of this world nothing was too much trouble for derrick and veronica.David is a very fussy eater and whatever he ordered derrick would cook for him just as he liked it.The sunday roast was lovely as was the toffee icecream with sauce. The breakfasts were very filling proper bacon and fried eggs and the chips were homemade not frozen. Next time we come to kalamaki we will be dining at the lighthouse again because derrick and veronica lookd after us so well and we got to no them socially to. They even made us a packed lunch for the pathetic airport at no charge.The steak and the pork chop was scrumtious too cooked just as we liked it i wish derrick veronica and all the staff there all the best and hope to see u again soon love Dave and Dot from Wales.
