Fanari
(Restaurants in Laganas)
10/10 Tony P (August 14, 2013)

Visited FANARI's in KALAMAKI, several times during early August 2013. Myself, my Wife and Daughter, during our two weeks stay in Kalamaki, tried quite a few Restaurants, including one with a Certificate of Excellence( who could not even cook simple fish and chips) and found FANARI's head and shoulders above the rest. The Service, Food quality, Gratuities, Prices and most of all, the staff, could not be faulted. My daughter celebrated her 14th here and the staff laid on a memorable time for her. Absolutely brilliant !!! Recommend this as a place to eat.

Thank you all at FANARI's in KALAMAKI. Will see you all again soon

We visited this resteraunt in september in kalamaki.

The place was immaculate - fresh clean & bright and vey welcoming.
The service could not be faulted
The food was beautiful, fresh hot  and very tasty. A lot of comlimentry extras.
Dont confuse this place with the old one in lagana, it is certainly worth a visit.
We didnt get the special offers ( starter main & drinks for 11 euro) , we tried the vine  starter ( the best I've had in greece) and a mexican main. ( very tasy Taco with the most tender chicken on the main street). You must try the potatoes with the taco mmmmm!
No room for desert too full from the starter & main , but managed the comlimentary baileys coffee , a must.

This place is a disgrace as it looks after the wrong sort of customer. The service is rubbish & the prices were extortionate! Paid 14 just for a Heineken and a large coke! As a couple after buying 2 steak meals were only offered a free coffee at the end of it. However if you were a group of girls or boys having just a 5 pizza or spaghetti bolognese you would get well looked after as they will give you a free bottle of sambucca, free bottle of schnapps and a free fish bowl cocktail. I guarantee that a group of 10 girls bill did not cost more than our 2 steaks & overpriced drinks yet they got the free alcohol stated above!

In conclusion if you are a couple avoid this place and all restaurants with Steakhouse in title as you will get stung and probably pay the most you ever will for a meal here. If you are a big group of youngsters willing to pay only 5 each for their meal then sting this place for all it is worth by getting as much free alcholol at the end when you pay as you will have a nice full drinks cabinet by the end of the holiday.
 
We were so annoyed at what happened we paid the bill & left no tip what so ever in protest and we don't like to do this and normally tip quite generously

FOOD: AWFUL
SERVICE: AWFUL
 
Ouch Its the worst place we ate in while in Laganas (we were here at the beginning of October 07). Going by the prices you would expect to be getting something special but we ate much much better in other places for a lot less than here. I suggest that you give this place a miss.
We have been to various Greek Islands and are well used to Greek food but this place is a disgrace.Angry

Just got back from a quality 2 weeks in laganas (c.40 degrees most days). Myself and my partner ate out pretty much every single night during our stay and this restaurant was the only one that we didn't enjoy ourselves in. I don't know if standards have slipped since previous comments have been made on here, but let it be said we were glad that we didn't order a starter each as well. We had to wait around 15 mins just for our drinks to come to the table, and even when they did, they were brought to the table several minutes apart (a pepsi and a bottle of beer, its not like they had to go and pop any corks). We then had to wait a further 50 mins or so for our main course (lamb kleftico) to be brought. There was no smile, no enjoy your meal either. It looked as though at first we both had a lot of meat on our plates so we began to tuck in. Over half of it turned out to be bones and fat. The food wasn't bad at all, its just with the small portions we ended up with its hard to pass true comment. One other thing, I will never understand what the point of the waiters waltzing about looking very smart in pressed white shirts, when the pr at the front of the restaurant is dressed like a complete chav (jeans, hoodie, etc) and their 7 year old boy is flitting from table to table, watching people eat their food and annoying families with babies.

Very nice, but be careful the menu is the same in Country and Stantanas which are all owned by the same Albanian Family.

Went there early on in the holiday and we both had steaks - my pepper steak lacked only one thing (pepper) but apart from that everything was lovely! Even got sparklers with our desserts!!

We went here on the first night, we were all really hungry.
It seemed like a good place to me.

Food was nice, some of the portions were too small, others too big. Service was quite good too.
