This is the best restaurant in Kalamaki. The food is great, the place is so pretty but most of all the staff are completely charming and can not do enough for you. They remembered my son's name by our 2nd visit and entertained us with their extensive impressions of accents and sayings from all over the world. You can not/should not spend time in Kalamaki without trying this restaurant, and the more you go, the better it gets!
This was by far the best restaurant we visited on holiday this year.

Wow.. we have just come back on the 2nd August from staying at Louros Beach Hotel in Kalamaki and i can tell you i had such an amazing time i am so sad to be back home! On the first week of our stay we only ate at michaelos once.. but during the second week we went every single night until the last!! It is definatley the best restaurant in the whole of Zante! Such nice staff there and it gives you a real Greek feel when your there.
I want to visit again in October but i am not sure whether it will be any good in kalamaki in october? and of course i need to know if my faveourite restaurant will be open!
Does anybody know whether or not it will be open during october time and what it is like in kalamaki?
P.s i have posted a lovely pic of me and my sister with Alberto! Such a fun and friendly waitor haha i miss the staff!
good food,good service and friendly, only ate here once due to the location from our accomodation, lamb chops and potatoes was excellent
Dennis and the staff are all still on top form,another place we will be returning to.
We ate here three times and had fantastic food, service and value for money each time.
Thank you Dennis and staff for some fantastic food again - It has been 19 years now and you never cease to produce good food, presentation and friendliness.
We discovered Mikaelos on our 2nd night in Kalamaki, after a bad experience in Buon Amici on the strip (very expensive and staff were very rude!)
Hi Dennis. It was our second visit to Zante. We were your first English customers on May 1st 09 . We hired a scooter and dined everynight at Mikaelos. The food is the best on the island. The best stifado and seafood pasta!! Superb Wine. Eating at Mikaelos Everynight made our holiday Very special!!
Mikaelos Bar is one of those places that you might easily not find, as it is slightly off the main drag. However, if you are on holiday for the Greek cuisine, then this is the place to go. Venture in you will not regret it.
Hope to see you soon .
Spent an amazing 2 weeks in Kalamaki in July this year. Holiday was made even better by our evenings at Michaelos. Thank you Dennis, Albert, etc, for making our time in Kalamaki even more special. Would highly recommend your restaurant to everyone who visits Zakynthos.
Hi Dennis, hope you are well. Sorry, we can't make it this year - 2008, but will try for next year. Don't forget if you are in the UK - look us up. (I'll be home this time - not at a car boot sale!) Thank you for the Xmas card, hope to see you next year!. Gerry & Julie Morganxx
Once again the best Resturant in kalamaki. Always has been. Well worth the walk :) x
best eatery on the island by far,good food,freindly,best lamb clefticon i have ever had in 20 years i have been comming to greece.
Just returned from our holiday in kalamaki. We eat 3 times at this wonderful restaurant. Wonderful food and lovely staff. It is a must!!!
Hi Denis, cannot wait to return to your wonderful restaurant. Bringing members of our family to experience your wonderfule food and hospitality
Used to be a Holiday Rep in Kalamaki and cannot reccommend Michaelos enough. Dennis, Albert and the team are wonderful and you will truely have a lovely evening here.
Simply the best!!! Fantastic service, amazing food - well worth the walk. Their meze is the best we have had. Came twice during our holiday and both times it was completely full - maybe best to book a table if wanting to eat around 9 o'clock. Faultless.
Best Greek Restaurant in the Universe. Really looking forward to coming back to Zante again this year
This was our 1st visit to Zanta, but what a find mikaelos was easily the best restaurant in the area. We dined there 3 nights trying different menus each night, but were never disappointed. Service was 1st class hope to return soon.
had a great meal here i had the meat balls and they were lovely wed all had different meals and couldnt fault them . service was very good and the staff are friendly as well and the setting is spot on . this about the third time we have eat here and always have a good meal . many thanks val godden
definately the best restaurant we went to in kalamaki and was only a 5 minute walk from our apartments which was a bonus as our little girl fell asleep here twice.
well in 7 years in zante weve finally made it here, the meals were great and the staff very friendly. i will certainly add it to my long list of good eating places in kalamaki . see you again and YAMAS!!
Ate at Mikaelos on Wednesday 4th July - had a 25 minute walk from our hotel but really worth it.
its off the beaten track but so so worth going, proper greek food!!! we will be back 3rd august for two weeks janine martin george and lottie x get a taxi and walk back!!
The food was excellent & staff so friendly. We had a bit of a walk to get there but it was well worth the effort. It is so popular that you either have to book or sometimes there is a short wait. The place is really good value for money & will def go back.
Well what a fantastic meal we had there. The staff are soooo friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for anyone there. The menu was brilliant, such a huge variety! The place is family run and it shows with the atmosphere of the room. A little bit of a walk there but worth every step from where we were staying.
This is the most amazing restaurant, the food is just amazing the best I have had in any restaurant anywhere I have been on holiday, the kids loved it my other half loved it the staff are very friendly and polite and make a fuss of the kids you do not have to wait ages for your food or your bill at the end of your meal. There is a massive menu and we tried loads of different things, I cant tell you enough how much we enjoyed it here you must go at least once it is legendary
It was our fifth visit to the island and as always we went to this resturant a couple of times.
Quite disappointed with this one, had lots of good meals here in previous years. This was a very rainy evening but still quite busy. The thing that spoiled it for me was that we skipped the starter and ordered just a main course, Beef Zakinthian & Lasagne, they arrived in much less than 5 minutes from placing our order...freshly cooked I don't think so!! Find it hard to give a negative comment on this place as its been so good before, but on this occassion it did not live upto expectations
Went here during our weeks holiday starting 3rd May 2007, someone at our apartments told us to try it as they had been and thought it was great. We had a first class meal, lovely service and the restuarant is also in a nice location. The price was very good value, we had garlic mushrooms and prawn cocktail for starters, skewered chicken, salad and potatoes for main course, one sweet and a carafe of wine all for under 30 euros!
We've been coming here for years and we have never been dissapointed. Dennis is wonderful and so are the staff, very attentive and caring. Can't wait to see you all again this year .
To all my lovely customers and friends one big thank[its not enough>for all your support and the good things you saY about my restaurant.To all the lovely people that for any reason we have cause disapoitment I truly feel very sorry and please forgive me.I do hope and wish to all of you MERRY CHRISTMAS HAPPY NEW YEAR AND VERY GOOD HEALTH DENNIS HAIKALIS MANAGER OWNER
In answer to Dianes question about finding this amazing place. As said earlier you do turn left from the taxi rank, but I feel it was unfair to say it looks like your heading to nowhere. There are various Hotels,snack bars,etc on the way to Mikaelos. Petrinos, Long Story Snack and Pool Bar, Rainbow Hotel and Ranier Hotel. You will pass all these on the way. I have been to Mikaelos numerous times and have enjoyed it each and every time. Dennis and staff are great and the food is out of this world. Keep up the good work Dennis.
Once again a really excellent meal, in lovely surroundings. The company was fab too, attending the wedding and then the reception at Mikaelos was one of the highlights of our holiday. We will be back for more gorgeous food next year
Fantastic restaurant in a great location with lovely staff. Service was excellent. We visited Mikaelos is August and again in September for a wedding reception. We enjoyed two fab meals and would recommend the Lamb Kleftico & spaghetti bolognese, both were delicious. See you again next year.
this resturant is amazing had many meals here and was never dissapointed. the best pointer i can give you is that i sore greeks queing out side.
My fav restaurant on Zante. Not sure about Greek food, try the Meze for two, it's great. If you try a dish and dont like it you dont pay, so be brave. Service is always great and you get the feeling you are visiting somebody's home. You can sit under the olive tree or the vines and at night they are lit up and it gives an atmosphere like no other place in Kalamaki. Well worth the walk out of town.
Once again we had 2 lovely meals at this restaurant. Keep up the good work Dennis and his team.
Directions to Mikaelos!!
Can anyone tell me where this restaurant is please? I have been to Kalamaki four times but not sure where to find it. Please give directions with land marks if poss.
As usual excellent food, service and prices despite the earthquake whilst we were there on one occassion. The best Lamb Kleftico on the island.
We have been coming to Mikaelos for 5 years and have always enjoyed our visit. However this year we were bitterly disappointed - service was poor and there was no special on offer. Some visitors were being feted but we felt that we were causing a nuisance rather than being good customers. We were sorry to see the drop in service from last year and hope that we just caught them on a bad night.
Slightly out of the way to where we were staying, Cavo D'oro, however it was well worth the walk. The service was great, very professional and has a big choice in food. I had Beef Yoiuvetsi which was lovely, the beef cooked to perfection in a hot pot with pasta .... yummy and very filling!
its best here n i not just talking bout the food the waiters r sexy ( da young 1s )
love this place, had the sardines to start then moussaka, a bottle of zakinthian wine, sitting under the vines, the greek music in the background, bliss!
What can we say? This is by far the best place in Kalamaki to eat. It was our second year at this resort and they recognise you straight away. Dennis, Artan, Alberto, Alex etc make you feel like one of their family. The children are made a fuss of and the food is superb. Think we have tried everything on the menu over the years and have never had a bad meal. Fantastic!!!!!
We had two fantastic meals at this restaurant and cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff are attentive and friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. We had a mixed meze to start that was truly the best we had all holiday, followed by beef stifado ( excellent) and beef youvetsi (rapturous). I would recommend Calliga MonteNero wine if you like red, which has warm plummy notes and goes lovely with beef. If you like the whites then a Solomos dry or medium dry is pretty hard to beat. We liked this place so much that we came here for a romantic last night meal. I loved the fried courgettes and mixed grill that I had. Keep up the excellent work.
I have never had even an average meal here,Dennis and his staff are great,in fact they are so good I am having my wedding reception here in September.
Been visiting Kalamaki for 5 years, always a great meal at Mikaelos!
We have eaten here before and it was very nice, cannot wait to go back in September.
This has got to be the best place to eat in Kalamaki.Dennis the boss is fantastic as are all of the staff,the food is of a high standard and very reasonably priced about 30 Euros average for a 3 course meal.Well worth a visit,and I gaurantee you'll want to return for another meal. EXCELLENT
We ate here a couple of times during our holiday and loved it. We always meant to try it but somehow didn't get round to it but we are so glad we did this time. Food, service etc all excellent and we will go back on our next visit in September.
soz i was meant to put excellant
i love this place its the best & the service is out of this world!!!!
The food in this place gets better and better every time I go to the place!!
If you can manage it, it is a pleasant walk to Mikalelos from the Kalamaki main drag, and helps to work up an appetite. We had a very good meal - meatballs, Zakynthian beef etc., the wine and service were also spot on. Might be worthwhile eating early(ish) here as it does tend to get busy later on, and as a result of its popularity people are prepared to queue for tables.
First time we have eaten here last week - gorgeous. The mixed meze was to die for, we will be back in September, thank you for a very enjoyable evening. We know now why people rave about it so much!!
An excellant very professionally run restaurant. No TVs, no competing blaring music, just quiet background Greek music. People were prepared to wait for a table to be free. A little out of the way but definately well worth the effort. We ate there every night for 2 weeks.
Just to say a big THANK YOU to Dennis and all the gang for making us so welcome. Have just got back from two weeks and cant get used to cooking for ourselves. Had excellent service and choice of meals even for fussy kids who really enjoyed your fab strawberries and ice creams!! Looking forward to coming back next year will really miss you all XXX
Just to say a big THANK YOU to Dennis and all the gang at Michaelos for making our holiday. Really enjoyed the menu and you hospitality, never had such a great time. Visited you three times during our two weeks and cant wait to come back next year !!! wish you well for the season and thank you again. XXX
this is with out doubt one of the best restaurants on the the island, the most friendly staff, fantastic menu and service, it is also very well priced, we ate here on our first night then tried a few different places, none of them even came close,,,the range of food on offer is unreal, from local specialities to european, even catering for the very plainist eaters one of the evenings i had been fishing just off the rocks near zante town, i managed to land a good bass of 8.5lbs, which i gave to the restaurant owner Dennis, he could not get over this, and made such a fuss over us every night, this realy is one of kalamaki`s best kept secrets,,, more than worth the walk out to it
this must be the best place to eat greek food the service is very good
We have travelled all over Greece and in our opinion the meals we had in Mikaelos were the best Greek food we have eaten.This was our first visit to Kalamaki, and though it is not the prettiest of places, Dennis and his staff will make you want to return just for the food and their hospitality.
