Buon Amici - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

We as a family of 15 of us were not to happy as we read the comments before going. My son and brother in law went early on in the day to book a table for 15 they said no problem they could handle it and would give free wine that was on offer at the time. We roll up at the time booked table not even ready! Then waited ages between courses. And the size of the meals were not value formoney my brother in law had to buy a burger after his meal.The risoto was not cooked properly the rice was raw i know risoto is not meant to be soft but really !!!! The atitued of one waiter was awful. One waiter spilt wine over my sister in law .They canot handle large parties i wish they had said in the first place as this would have saved us time and money

   cant understand last comment we as a family have been going for years .we choose kalamaki for its rustic feel if you want all the white marbel ae nd super dooper night life try the costas in spain becouse thats where id love to see all these brits who want all non stop getting rat a**ed and un ruley behaivour!!! we love it as  takes you back to earth who wants all high tech tv !!

yes i agree the rubbish along the roads was a bit of a mess and as for the driving just watch out thats all if the dogs can keep safe then so can we ! we drove there last week and found it ok . we as a family of 15 have been going every year for 18 years and have made very good friends out there. and we will still go as long as they dont turn it in to lagana! and also what do you expect it was the last week that the island is open to us brits so things will be closing up they restraunts and bars will not stay open if there's only a handful around any way we love it like that !!! so please dont change kalamaki if you want southend stay at home .

click to enlargeclick to enlarge Well done Athina and Pete  Had a wonderful time yet again on the last week of the season 2nd time in one year we have been  and the family have been many times also. We have loved staying with the Athina as nothing is to much trouble for the staff and its central to the town but a bit of a stroll to the beach  but thats not a problem ! Walks off the breakfast . It can be a little noisey when you get the drunks coming in early hours of the morning  but thats just selfish people you get that any where the views are smashing and its nice to sit on the balcony with a glass or two ! The staff keep it spotless and the apartments are basic but hey who wants to spend there holiday in an apartment ?

So we hope to be back next year .

hi Melanie

we as a family have been to kalamki for years and been in Oct. the weather is ok for a swim but can be cooler in the evenings and is changeable during that month but saying that we have always had good weather. the shops and eating places start to close down for the season in the last week of october so there is not the choice but  it is nice and peaceful then. the shipwreck can only be got to by boat which you swim from so if you are good swimmers then yes great. But it can be viewed from above on the  mountain which has a viewing point . hope this helps . have just got back today from our 5th vist to this lovely place and the rest of us Goddens have been going for more than 20 times so hope this helps have a great time .
regards  Val

Val G           

Just got back today and the weather has been lovely and hot for the past two weeks .

Just wanted to stay and not come home as for eating places they are all pretty good but the Tesoro in the main street next to the guru is the best place to eat and when you go in there say hello to Spiros the owner from us Godden family we have been going for years there . I wouldnt go to the guru  to eat as it is not so good and you get ripped off . Also the Escape eating place is  a super place to eat its just off the main road  down from  Dennis supermarket its worth a try hope this helps have fun wish i was back there never mind theres always next year . regards Val
