Martine M

Zeros - (Bars in Laganas)

Martine M           

yes nat zisis did work in the down under last year cos thats were i met him!!

Zeros - (Bars in Laganas)

Martine M           

WELL HAVE ANY OF YOU ACTUALLY ASKED GEORGE WHO HE WANTS AND WHO HE BELONGS TO??? DINT THINK SO! SO WHEN I GO THERE IN JULY I WILL ASK MY GOOD FRIEND ZISIS WHO GEORGE LIKED! BUT THERES A GOOD CHANCE HE WONT REMEMBER YOU BY NAME!!
BUT HEY ITS A GREAT PLACE!!!

Down Under - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (June 22, 2003)         

Well you must not have got to know the barmen! cos they are really nice, and they would never con you, and fair dues, angels is good too, but there usually aint that many people in there! the down under is fantastic!!

Zeros - (Bars in Laganas)

Martine M           

Why don't you just let them get on with it, its up to them if they had fun on holiday, and they found a guy who they fancy, cos its all its gonna be in the end, give it a couple of months and they will be over him. I am a tourist of this place for 3 years does that comment apply to me?
I have loads of friends in zakynthos, mainly in kalamaki and laganas, and i've had a greek boyfriend but guess what, i never gave him what he wanted, and guess what, he dumped me. that just proves your point.
Il be in kalamaki in a weeks time how good is that.

Escape - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Martine M           

I have been to Kalamaki 7 times, my mum has been 14 times, we are going back on Friday, and we eat here nearly every night. The food is gorgeous, the service is good and there is a lovely atmoshere. Maria and her staff are very helpful and friendly and i couldn't say a bad word about this place.

I recommend the chicken souvlaki, omelette, cheese and bacon pizza and the garlic pasta(but only if you like garlic cos its strong)

Zeros - (Bars in Laganas)

Martine M           

it was very packed at this time off year and it was full of youngsters!but the barstaff were great, funny, entertaining and good looking, what more would you want? they were always there to help you when you got drunken boys trying to feel you up and talking to you like a cheap s**t, like i was, when all i was there for was a drink and the barmen.
thank you zisis, fortis, george and raf for looking after me and mum. we will see you at the end of september.

Down Under - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (July 29, 2003)         

Nat, Leon works in Bad Boys now! nick, george and kym are still there!

Angels Bar - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (July 29, 2003)         

Hey Chris i don't know if you will remember us but we were the two blondes who were always talking to Yanni. you did speak to me and my mum, cos i remember her telling you that she has been to Zakynthos 15 times! we will be back September 29th! will you be coming back this year to do some more DJ'ing? you were great!
This place is better than it was last year!

Down Under - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (July 30, 2003)         

Thats ok Nat. if you ever want to chat my email is martine.mitchell@bushinternet.com

Zeros - (Bars in Laganas)

Martine M           

i actually saw alot of ugly, loud mouthed english girls in zeros. everywhere in the world has its fair share of ugly and beautiful people though.

Zeros - (Bars in Laganas)

Martine M           

sorry i have to say my bit here too!
i am an english girl, im not ugly at all, not all english men are like what you are saying, fair enough after a bit of drink they think they can get into any girls pants and act like little boys.
Practically every barman wants to get into girls pants in laganas unless they have a girlfriend. now that i've said that, you can all shut up and talk about what a great time you had in Zeros cos that is what this page is all about.

Zeros - (Bars in Laganas)

Martine M           

Oh and i do have lots of self respect. that is why i was sat at the bar with my mum just generally talking to Fortis, Raf, Zisis and little George and having soft drinks! i think i must have been the quietest person in the whole place, and i still enjoyed myself.
il be back in 8 weeks time.

Zeros - (Bars in Laganas)

Martine M           

Em, i think you have pretty much summed up england. Raf is english too you know, and he is definately not ugly. He lived in Norwich before he worked in Zeros, i live about a 10 minute walk from where he lived. i think people should not judge countries, just based on a few people they have met or seen. England is a lovely place, and is full of lovely people(not as nice as greeks though).
So i think before anyone else makes a comment about england and/or english people, they should at least come to england and find out first.

Angels Bar - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (September 14, 2003)         

im sorry but i have to add a comment here. I visit kalamaki 2 times a year and my mum visits 3 times a year, since 1997. So i no for sure that the staff are not on drugs, fair enough they do have a drink, but i think you will find that in most bars, and i think that Con deserves to have a good drink, as he is a very busy and hard working man like all of his staff. I have met chris and he is a great bloke.

Angels Bar - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (September 15, 2003)         

Hoops, or whatever your name is, did you actually see a member of staff doing drugs? because some of them are my friends and i no for a fact they wouldn't touch them, and i've known them for over 3 years now.
i agree that this page is for opinions of angels bar but you cant really go saying that staff are on drugs, if you want i can check that up for you when i go back in 2 weeks time.

Angels Bar - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (September 23, 2003)         

so your gonna be there when im there? i leave monday!

Angels Bar - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (September 25, 2003)         

no way i get there monday night!!!!

Angels Bar - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (October 10, 2003)         

Again this place was good,but it was quiet. i want a job here in 2005!!!james the DJ and his girlfriend(sorry i forget your name) were great. yannis, thank you for looking after me, im very greatful.
i will see you all again when i come back July 5th next year.
Con i want a job. Please.

Angels Bar - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (October 14, 2003)         

i really miss everyone in angels, and i miss kalamaki.
see you in 8 months!!

Down Under - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (October 16, 2003)         

James was the DJ at the Middle of July to bout the end of August, and he is now at Angels! He had Dark hair. am i right?

Down Under - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (October 17, 2003)         

they were doing it themselves!!!

Down Under - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (October 19, 2003)         

George, Nick, and Kim. Oh there was another bloke i cant remember his name, he also sang there.

Angels Bar - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (October 23, 2003)         

Well said Chris!!! im fed up with people going to a personal note on here.
I actually like both angels and down under(in fact in the down under they have named me their little sis, as i have been there so many times, for the past 5 years.)
Like people keep saying, there are alot of underaged kids on the island going to the bars getting drunk, and even sleeping with the bar staff, its like that where ever you go.
But me, im 18 and i know how to say No. Im actually friends with Yannis, and last year my friend was with him and she didn't catch nothing!!!
I don't know why you people come on here, if all you are going to do is slag the place off, if you didn't like it, and you liked down under, then why don't you go give your good comments on their page, as i have done. You are spoiling this for people who have never been here by giving it a bad name.
Oh and im going to stick up for my friend chris, as he is a great bloke.
Anyway i don't mean to offend anyone, if i have.
Hope you all have a good christmas.

I'll email you later Chris.

Down Under - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (October 25, 2003)         

Best of luck for the wedding Nick. hope it all goes well. Bet your glad the season is nearly over!! we will see you next year.
Love Martine, Bernardine & Graham

Down Under - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (October 26, 2003)         

at the end of November. I cant remember her name, but shes got really long beautiful brown hair, shes slim and shes greek, she was often at the down under helping Tif with the glass collecting.

Angels Bar - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (October 27, 2003)         

Daniel, i dont mean to stir up trouble but it was Louise that was after Yannis, as she told me. I know Yannis is a bit of a player but it wasn't all down to him! If its handed to him on a plate he will take it. Sorry but i had to say that.

Angels Bar - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (October 27, 2003)         

Oh and if anyone wants to talk to me email me, martine.mitchell@bushinternet

Bad Boys Club - (Bars in Laganas)

Martine M  (January 04, 2004)         

yes there was! he is one of the bouncers! he originally worked with his cousins george, nick and kym at the down under!

Bad Boys Club - (Bars in Laganas)

Martine M  (January 06, 2004)         

i might have an old picture like 1-2 years ago? il see what i can find!

Down Under - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (February 17, 2004)         

Hey James, i dont know if you or Alison remember me but we spent alot of time talking to you in october in the other bar!
If you dont, email me, martine.mitchell@bushinternet.com or Martine8585@msn.com.
hope to hear from you soon!

Angels Bar - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (February 20, 2004)         

You come on there is no need to be so harsh Emily. are you the Emily who worked there july?
shez i need your email?
To all of you, if you had fun on your holiday whether it is cos of the staffor the place thats good but like emily said,most barmen will show a liking to you to give you to come back to the bar again,thats the way it works. Be aware!

Angels Bar - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (February 20, 2004)         

lou were you the one who was there with your boyfriend in october?
email me if you were! martine.mitchell@bushinternet.com

Down Under - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (May 31, 2004)         

sorry to say this but the last 2 comments sound as if these people got jealous in one way or another, the down under guys are personal friends of mine and i know what they are like and it is certainly not how they have explained them to be. sure they are friendly but every bar you will go in they are friendly(thats what greeks are like)have you been to laganas also known as slaganas for one reason in particular, if not don't slate the down under guys cos they could never be like that.
see you lot in 5 weeks time

Down Under - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (June 02, 2004)         

tiger, why do you think this? these guys looked after me when i was getting harrassed by ENGLISH men. they are my big brothers i have been going back and forth to zante for bout 4 years now and they have never been like that with me!

Zeros - (Bars in Laganas)

Martine M           

Hey does anyone else think that in the picture (Ann Eva & Darren May 2004) that darren looks like Neil Morrisey out of men behaving badly?
Or is that just me?

Down Under - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (July 20, 2004)         

im very upset to see some of these comments, but i come back every year to the same place, i come to see all my friends.
george, nick and kym always look after me and my mum.
The only place that is dirty is the toilets but that is because the holiday makers have no respect.
The comment about parents letting their young teen ager out with a friend she met around the pool surprised me(what are you doing letting her out on her own for god sake) i think you will find that boys don't hit on girls unless they are provoked. i was in here everynight and have watched how girls dance around and behave.
at this time of year the island has more young holiday makers as it is the best time to party.
don't knock this place unless you have tried at least 7 bar/clubs on the island.
Thanks for a great holiday guys will see you next season.

Plus Soda - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (July 20, 2004)         

Well Done Con, this place is great, it is so much better than Angels.
I think you should keep Chris there at all times to DJ as he is the best.
Yannis and Nick thank you for the extra strong cocktails, could only drink a few as i would have had to be carried home.
Great location though, we only had to walk across the road to get back to our apartment.
Nick stay happy and Yannis, well you just stay as you are.
And a big shout out to the bar girl with dark hair (sorry forgot your name) you kept us entertained.
Thank you for a great time and will see you all next season.

Down Under - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Martine M  (July 20, 2004)         

Leigh-Anne Reilly, why are you complaining on the down under page about guys following you home, if you ignore men they get the point i have experienced guys like that out there, if you give eye contact to them then they take it as a come on, if you dance like a lap dancer on the bar then they take it as a come on, if your wearing a short skirt then watch out.
Guys have to be provoked.
Unless you are stunning.

Plus Soda - (Bars in Kalamaki)

M   (July 23, 2004)         

Whats this comment all about? what do you mean by seconds? i go to both down under and plus soda.
I think you may have been drunk love.
oh and don't say nasty things bout the lovely chris.

Venus Hotel - (Accommodation in Kalamaki)

M            

Train - to answer your question, on the main road there is a wide selection of bars, but it depends on what you are into?

Kalamaki Resort - (Resorts in Zante)

M            

Ok now this is a message for the moody old git called Trevor:
First of all i have been to this island for 6 years, 2 times a year, same resort and same apartment.
I have travelled to lots of other places
*Yugoslavia
*Gran Caneria
*Tenerife x3
*Ibiza
*Majorca x2
*South Spain
*Portugal
*Austria
*Paris and the list goes on.

Kalamaki is my favourite place out of the lot. Like Chris and alot of other people who enjoyed their holiday, the island has to cater for the tourist otherwise they won't like it, thats why you get the fake bags, and belts, etc, but it's real leather.
as for the comment about not being clean, its the tourist that do it, do you really expect the locals to go along the beach to pick up old fag butts and rubbish, there are bin provided. the people who are on turtle watch pick up plastic bags and anything that could harm the turtles.
as for the food it is YUMMY.

i think that you may just be a low wage, stuck up snobb with nothing better to do than moan about every grain of sand on the beach and every grain of salt in the salt shaker.

GET A LIFE

Plus Soda - (Bars in Kalamaki)

M   (August 13, 2004)         

Plus Soda is the best, i miss you guys,Anna your babe, Yannis.....well your just Yannis. And Con what can i say about you..................very caring and successful.

OOOOOOOOOOOh Chris are you sure you can't just pack me into you suitcase rather than clothes??

Escape - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

M            

I have been visiting escape for many years now and we've only ever had a waiter forget to bring our drinks once and that was because it was extremely busy but other than that everything was great, especially the chicken souvlaki, and the rice is so tasty i could eat a whole plate of it!!
Good luck with the baby Maria!

Down Under - (Bars in Kalamaki)

M   (October 11, 2004)         

Mum and Dad are back home, im really gutted that i couldn't come see you all this time, i miss you lot.
so maybe you could send me an email sometime, Martine8585@msn.com or martine.mitchell@bushinternet.com
have a good winter,
Martine*

Mermaids - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

M   (October 19, 2004)         

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but if you haven't actually been in the kitchen then how would you know that food could be cooked in the microwave? the waiters all rush around because they are trying to serve everybody as well as they can. i have been in mermaids for food for 7 years now and i have never had a complaint about. the chicken souvlaki is great, and they always have good specials. Its always busy which suggests something.
hope you all have a good winter, you all deserve a rest, look forward to seeing you all next year.
Martine*
