Hi Dennis, Leo and all.

Just to forewarn you my wife and I will be back in Tsilivi for a week in October. In case you don't remember, we were with you for most of June 2005 and my wife ended up dancing on the bar after drinking too many of your flaming sambuca!!! I believe you are now in possession of those photo's too thanks to her dad
 
Look forward to seeing you all from the 15th October.

THE BEST restaurant in Tsilivi. The Lamb Pougi is the best dish I've had in over 20 years of visiting greece. Wonderful food and always our first stop in Tsilivi.

Hi Sian, my wife and I met you in October last year at Magdalena's it was her 30th Birthday and we were responsible for the balloons and cake!!! (That was also the infamous night of the naked South African guy wandering around the streets of Tsilivi after being "escorted" out of the bar by Dennis and myself).

Say hello to Dennis for us, we will be back there on 24th June ready for some more black sambuca and red vodka!!!

Hi to Maggie, Danny and the crew at Sweet Revenge.

Been back home nearly a week now and missing you all. Had loads of stunning meals at Sweet Revenge, the Lamb Chops and the Pork Belly Chops being particularly superb as was the flambe Kleftiko. Caz gives a special mention to the pancakes with sugar and lemon mmmmmmmmm and I am missing the creamy mushroom starter like you wouldn't quite believe!!!
 
We highly recommend this place, you get well looked after by Maggie and Danny and the food is top notch and really well priced.
 
Can't wait to go back in a couple of years time when we will have a new addition in tow! We will let you know how things go with the baby Maggie!
 
Yammas all and see you soon.

Yassoo Dennis, Andreas, Emma, Soula, George, Nikos

Well we've been back home a week and are missing our late nights in Mags . Cheers for looking after us again and the drambuie sniffers went down particularly well!!! I may have to have a red aftershock tonight to remind me of what we are missing!
 
Hi to Emma, hope you are well mate and enjoying the beach parties - providing you are avoiding the fights!!!! Caz says hello you nutty tart and says see we have made you famous with your mugshot on the net!
 
2 years can't come quickly enough when we will be back with our own new addition! Make sure that West Brom scarf keeps it's rightful place behind the bar Dennis! When the baby arrives we will email you a picture.
 
Hi to Julie from Tizzies too and hopefully we can catch up with you when you are back in the winter and say hello to Diane for us.
 
Take care all and look after our second home for us
 
See you in 2 years.

Just come back from 2 fab weeks in Zante and spent many occasions in the wonderful Fiorentino. Frank's Lamb Pougi seems to get better every year and for the first time this year I tried the sea bass baked in the grease proof paper which was absolutely delicious.

Its no surprise that people queue up to get in here as the quality of food is top notch. Can't wait to come back!

Hi Maggie and Danny. Sorry for the delay in sending this but the last 7 weeks have been a muddle of nappy changes, sleepless nights and the likes! Caz gave birth to our beautiful baby daughter Hannah Lily on 28th October and she weighed 6 pounds 12. Both are doing really well and we hope to come over to Tsilivi in late September or early October 2009 where we will proudly show her off!!!! Hope you are both well and wishing you a very merry christmas. Chris, Caz and Hannah

Hi Frank, Roxani and the crew.

Absolutely gutted to here you are closing at the end of this season , the last time we were there was June last year when my wife was heavily pregnant, we've since had a beautiful little girl and though we would love to come and see you in your last year in Tsilivi I think it may be too soon to go abroad with her.
 
I will miss the Lamb Pougi tremendously, if you can ship some over to Birmingham or at least give the recipe when you close that would be great !
 
Wishing you all the best in the future.

Pre-order some fab weather for us and I'm sure we will be in Sweet Revenge on many nights, I am really missing your lamb chop's and pork bellydraft done on the charcoal spit.
 
2009 can't come quickly enough.

Hi Alex and Kate

We always drink downstairs with Dennis and Andreas though saying that my Mom went last year in September and I think Dennis was covering upstairs as Dimitri wasn't there. Would be surprised if he has gone as he is part of the furniture at Mags as Nikos is.
 
If Dimitri has gone you can be rest assured Dennis will look after you well with plenty of black sambuca, red vodka and aftershock!!!

Hi Alex and Kate

It varies where we stay, have stopped in Cosmopolitan, Amarylis and Mavrikos but now having the little un we are in the Zante Maris next year as it has a few more facilities. Can't wait to get back just gutted that Fiorentino's is closing
 
Say hello to Dennis for us if you can when u get over there and let him know we'll be there in 2009

Yeah the euro really isn't helping. Last year we spoke to Maggie and Danny who own Sweet Revenge and they have said that business is quiet because there are a lot of Scandinavians going to Zante now and they never bother eating out they always cook in their apartments. Just hope none of our other favourite haunts close.

Have fun in Kardamena and Tsilivi.

Sweet Revenge is fab I would say now Fiorentino's is closing it will be our favourite haunt, its next door to Benikos though it does have a front side and a back side so you can turn right after passing Camelot and get to it that way. Maggie and Danny are the couple who own it and they really look after you. They do beautiful food on the charcoal spit, really nice lamb chops. There are some reviews on here also if they help. If you go tell them Chris, Caz and Hannah say hello.

Where is Tsilivino as it sounds like an interesting place for a meal. Will give it a whirl when I go back to Tsilivi in 2009.

Having been in Tsilivi in October a couple of years ago I can confirm that wasps are a bit of a nuisance at this time of year. I nearly sat on one on the beach which would've been interesting! The best thing I can advise is to look on the net for Wasp Repellant, I have bought some this year and it works like a charm.

Hi Maggie and Danny, we are counting down the months now until we come back to our favourite holiday destination and our favourite restaurant in Tsilivi. You will be our first stop on 25th September so get those lamb chops on the charcoal spit ready for me

I've put a recent picture of our daughter here and I'm sure she will love her very first visit to Tsilivi, she will be nearly 2 when we get over there!!! See you in September. Chris, Caz and Hannah

Back from another 2 glorious weeks in Tsilivi and more fantastic food at Sweet Revenge. Apologies I had to dart off on the last night Maggie, I think I'd had a bit too much sun and just needed to get some fresh air!

Thanks for looking after us, Maggie, Danny, Sophia and all. Once again the food superb, Mom and Dad loved the Kleftico.
 
We'll be back in October 2010 for another 2 weeks. Can't wait!
 
PS. Hope the tablets for your feet work!
