we found the Calypso to be the best place to eat in Tsilivi.Great staff,vast menu,massive portions!!The roast lamb was exellent and loads of it and you should see the size of their mixed grill!!!Good choice of children`s menu too.Nothing too much trouble,one night our youngest wanted egg+chips which wasn`t on the menu but no problem egg+chips she got.As for the desserts-I nearly fainted when they brought my sweet stawberry pancakes MASSIVE!!!I didn`t know whether to eat it or stick a flag on top of it!
we would highly recommend the Calypso and will definitely be returning
we visited Tsilivi for the 1st time in September 2004,our 3rd time to Zante.We loved everything about the resort,beautiful beach,great restaurants.We ate out every night for two weeks and were spoiled for choice and never had a bad meal.We stayed at the Mavrikos Hotel and had a fantastic time,our two daughters aged 10 and 5 loved every minute of the holiday.I can't believe some comments i've read about Tsilivi!!we can't possibly have stayed in the same resort as some of the people who have posted comments on this site!As for the couple who said Tsilivi was like 'Blackpool with sun' Did they walk around with a guide dog!
I would recommend anyone to go to Tsilivi,to go to Zante,it is a beautiful island and we can't wait to go back.
Just got back on the 27th and we ate here several times during our two weeks.We found the food and service to be very good.I had the biggest portion of beef stroganof you have ever seen and my hubby had the chicken roasted on the spit and the meat just fell off the bone it was so tender!Another thing we liked was there was no pushy greek stood on the door ,just Dimitri smiling as usual. Try an Irish coffee after your meal,or should i say a whisky with a dash of coffee in it!!In most other tavernas you could hardly taste the whisky but Dimitri makes a good one!Prices are very reasonable too,4 of us eating for between 30 and 40 euros with drinks and dessert!!On several occasions Kia would send over a dish of fresh fruit salad or a caraffe of wine at no extra cost, would you get that anywhere in England? i think not!
lovely sandy beach and very safe shallow water for the children, you can walk for ages and still only have the water up to your knees.Not too busy too so it never seemed overcrowded
What a great trip this was!The museum put together by Spiros is fascinating to say the least and i thought we going to go back legless when we got to his taverna we were given so much local village wine!!They even brought out grapes and raisins and chips for the kids.We went back to the greek night on the saturday which was excellent value for money.Was it just us or does anyone else think that Spiros has a look of Sid James from the carry on films!!! Great night out
