Carol P           

 Nicos and Liza are great hosts and always make you feel welcome, it's one of our favourite places and we are looking forward to going there in just a few weeks time.  

Buon Amici - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

Thanks to Lisa, Nic, Vlad, Zoe and Tasha for making us so welcome.  We enjoyed several great meals here during our stay and as always our holiday disappeared far too quickly.

Hope you all have a lovely Summer and maybe we'll see you in September.

Paolo - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

Thanks to everyone at Paolo's for feeding us so well over the last two weeks.  As usual the food was great - we tried some of our old favourites - bekri meza, lamb staminas, kleftica, mousakka and we never disappointed.

Venus Hotel - (Accommodation in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

We have just returned from another wonderful 2 weeks here. Everyone is so nice and helpful ensuring your stay is perfect.  Looking forward to our next visit.

Paolo - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

Huge menu to choose from - something for all tastes.  Great greek food, pizzas, meat dishes, fish etc. etc. Try it once and you'll go back!

Buon Amici - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

Really enjoyed our meals here - hard to single out any one dish as everything we had was so good. Price wise maybe a little dearer than some other places but worth it for the freshness of the ingredients.  It was nice to see everyone again and we'll be back next year.

Paolo - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

We went here several times over our 10 days and enjoyed our meal especially the Bekri, hot pot paolo, moussaka, lamb staminas and Kleftica. Price wise its very good value for money and even on a busy night (and there were several) the service didn't suffer.  It was nice to see everyone again this year and look forward to returning in June.

Venus Hotel - (Accommodation in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

Our second visit this year and once again it was excellent.  This hotel goes from strength to strengh and the number of returning guests endorses the quality of service everyone receives.  The whole team are very friendly and go out of their way to be helpful.   We are already looking forward to our next visit!

Venus Hotel - (Accommodation in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

We have just returned from another brilliant stay at the Venus. Everyone at the hotel give 100% to ensure everyone has a great stay and its to their credit that people return time after time.  Nothing is ever too much trouble and you are always greeted with a huge smile. 

Our holidays are precious and very important to us and staying here makes it so special  We are already looking forward to returning in September. 

Merlis Car Hire - (Car Rental on Zante)

Carol P           

We hired a car from Julie who provides such an excellent service.  The price we paid was very good and the information Julie gave us helped us decide where to go that we had not covered before.  We would certainly hire from her again.

Buon Amici - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

Always eat here several times during our holiday and once again it was great food and service.  Nic, Liza. Ladi, Natasha and all the staff work very hard to make your evening enjoyable. 

Paolo - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

Once again we ate here severtal times during our stay.  Paolo and the staff looked after us very well and the food was great.  Loved the new outside seating area which given the temperatures over the last two weeks was brilliant.

Dias - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

I can't believe we have been going to Kalamaki for so long and have not eaten here until this year.  We had a couple of lovely evenings and once it was so busy there was a short wait until a table became available.  It was worth the wait as the food was excellent.  Will definitely go there again.

Michaelos - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

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.

Cronulla Bar - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

just love Dia's club sandwiches and the frappe from the bar is great too.

Cronulla Bar - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

go here nearly every day during our stay in kalamaki.  It's a great bar with well priced drinks and great service. 

Aghios Sostis Resort - (Resorts on Zante)

Carol P           

We have been coming to zante for many years and never knew this place existed.  Now we have found it we will definitely be back.  Visited twice and had two great lunches, so nice sitting there on the beach.  Still can't believe its so close to Laganas - seems a world away.

Keri Resort - (Places to Visit on Zante)

Carol P           

after any years visiting zante this is the first time we visited Keri and loved it.  Went there a couple of times for breakfast or frappes.  So quiet and lovely views.  We'll defiinitely visit again.

Kalamaki Resort - (Resorts on Zante)

Carol P           

Poaitively our favourite place to stay. A huge choice of places to eat or drink with something for all age groups. 

Venus Hotel - (Accommodation in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

Just returned from our second visit of the season and had a brilliant time.  This hotel offers it all, great hospitatlity, spotless rooms and truly brilliant staff who have time for everyone.

Paolo - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

Always enjoy our meals here and this trip was no exception.  Good menu, service and reasonable prices. 

Buon Amici - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

Always one of our favourites and again it was excellent on all our visits over the two weeks.  The veal, chicken cacciatore, lasagne, chicken toscana were all huge favourites.  The welcome and hospitality is always great even on a busy night.  Thanks everyone. 

Dias - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

Enjoyed our meals here, brilliant meze starter, chicken dias was my tops and the beef stifado one of the best my husband has eaten anywhere.  Great atmosphere, nice friendly staff and good value for money. 

Manthos - (Restaurants in Aghios Sostis)

Kaz P  (October 09, 2006)         

What an excellent place to enjoy a leisurely lunch after a hard mornings sightseeing.  We were recommended to try this restaurant in June and we loved it so much we went back again more than once in September.  It was  here that we came for a last lunch before heading home with Alan and Lyn (see comment below) and  we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We are already looking forward to returning next summer.

Blue Horizon - (Restaurants in Aghios Sostis)

Kaz P           

had lunch here in June, it was very nice and of course the views were brilliant.

Village Inn - (Restaurants in Zante Town)

Kaz P           

We have been here several times over the last couple of years.   The garden area is lovely and so peaceful away from the noise of the town.  We only ate omelettes for lunch which was fine and the mythos was nice and cold

Only one criticism and thats the state of the toilets, they really are neglected and well overdue for a really good spring clean or replacement - shame really as it lets the place down. 

Buon Amici - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Kaz P           

Cooked chicken toscana last night and those lovely potatoes and it was excellent.  Not as good as Ladi's but near enough   Phil loved the lamb chops but I don't like lamb so he'll have to wait until June for those  Hope the remaining days of the season go well for you all.

Cronulla Bar - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Carol P           

Nearly always start our evenings here with  nice, cold vodka tonics not to mention the odd beer of an afternoon  Always a great welcome and a good atmosphere.

Just returned from another brilliant stay.  There was nothing about our stay that wasn't 100% good.  The refurbishment has been very well done.  The food in the pool bar was really good and apart from the days we had the car we tended to eat lunch there most days.  We enjoyed drinks on the terrace although the airconditioned lounge was a blessing during the really hot nights

Everyone who works at this hotel puts the guests first and they always have a smile on their faces even though they must have been melting at times last week.
 
This is our favourite place in the sun and we have  already booked again for next June   

Buon Amici - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Thanks everyone for all those great meals over the last 2 weeks.    See you next June.

Paris - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P  (July 04, 2007)        10/10

This was a first for us this year and had we not been at the end of our holiday would definitely have gone back again. 

Plaka Beach - (Beaches on Zante)

Carol P          7/10

We were there the same day Sonia, awful when the loo doesn't flush, I headed off for the one in the taverna come mid afternoon

Since finding this beach we return a couple of times during our stay usually opting for beds on the beach and lunch from the bar.  Its all kept very clean and tidy and the people there are very friendly. A great way to completely relax and a welcome change from hotel pools.
 
We have used the 'free' sunbeds later in the season when the weather is a little more unpredictable We quite accept that if you use the beds you buy your drinks/food from the bar as is the case with all pools etc in Greece.

Buon Amici - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P          10/10

We'll be out again in three weeks time, can't wait for some sun and of course your great food.

See you soon.

Venus Hotel - (Accommodation in Kalamaki)

Carol P          10/10

Once again another brilliant stay at the Venus, can't fault it except to say it's hard to leave.  The refurbishment is now complete and the whole hotel is just so nice, the food at the pool bar is brilliant and although not a breakfast person we did make it twice and the choice this year is just outstanding.  The bar in the evenings is just the perfect way to end the day.  Already counting down to Sept

 
Sept 08
Ditto above, another brilliant stay in this superb hotel

Hi Liza, Nicos, Ladi and your great staff  Can't believe how quickly two weeks go and as usual we enjoyed many a great evening in Buon Amici.  Food as always was brilliant.  See you all in September Missing the grilled veal

Zepos - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P          10/10

First time here for a few years and what a treat we have been missing!  The location is superb, the food mouthwatering, just loved the haloumi and veggie starter, not to mention the souvlaki.  My husband had kleftiko and said it was the best he had eaten in a long time.  We are already looking forward to returning in September

Gastronomy - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P  (July 04, 2008)        9/10

I think Lesley, comment below, has summed it up perfectly as we were the friends they were with  It's definitely the place for a very special evening and worth every euro  I would recommend a cab from Kalamaki as its quite a walk especially for us girls wearing heels! We will definitely be going again.

Cronulla Bar - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Carol P          10/10

Our favourite bar in Kalamaki.  Went in here virtually every night for pre dinner drinks not to mention the odd lunch time beer and club sandwich  The best vodka and tonics in the resort Dia, Steve, Jimmy, Suzanne, Tommy, Robbie all work so hard to give you a good time.  See you all in September.

Iguana Bar - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Carol P          10/10

Often ended up here late afternoon for a nice cold mythos looking across to Skopos, perfect

Oceanic - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Carol P          10/10

lol bar for OAP'Sthat's  a new claim to fame Kev  Well I don't recall any old people in there (except Lesley of course ) and even if that was the case everyone seemed to be very happy and as long as the customers are happy so are you is my guess 

Merlis Car Hire - (Car Rental on Zante)

Carol P          10/10

Julie makes hiring a car such an easy process, booked over the internet during the winter knowing that when Julie says 9.30 delivery at the hotel thats when it will be   Already booked for Sept.

Buon Amici - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P          10/10

Once again enjoyed many meals here during our stay.  We first visited on opening week, many years ago now, and its a firm favourite with us.  A great menu from pizzas  to pastas to some of the best veal and lamb we have ever tasted.  Great house wine too and staff that are always smiling and welcoming.  Thanks everyone

Dias - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P          10/10

We enjoyed several meals here during our recent visit and all were brilliant although I have become rather addicted to the steak dias  The welcome, ambience, and great food cannot be faulted.

Paolo - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P          10/10

Just back from another great holiday in Kalamaki.  Paolos was the first restaurant we ever went to wayback in the 90's and is a tradition with us now  Enjoyed several really good meals here over the last two weeks.  It was way too hot in June to enjoy the wonderful moussaka but made up for it this time

Hera - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P          8/10

Our first visit and one which will be on our list next year.  The food was great and my husband especially loved the kleftico.  Service was good but the staff didn't interact much, maybe because we were new customers.  I only have one criticism and thats the lighting, as it was a cold night we ate inside and the harsh lighting didn't give the place any ambience.  Dimmed lighting would make all the difference. 

Mojitos - (Bars in Kalamaki)

Carol P          8/10

Went in here in June and Sepember.  Nice setting but quiet each time we went in so felt a little lonely  Nice vodka/tonics though

Buon Amici - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P          10/10

Some great meals in one our favourite restaurants, lovely to see you all again   Enjoyed the veal, lasagne, baked courgettes, alfredo........... and Phil was happy to indulge in a lamb fix or two plus chicken cacciatore not to mention the spag bol  Yummy wine and loving the new grapes, missing my fix already and thanks to Electra for delivering our last carafe so beautifully  See you next Sept.

Dias - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Once again the food did not disappoint, all delicious and washed down with some great wine. 

Paolo - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P          10/10

Only one review since mine last year..........

Enjoyed several meals here and still the best mousakka and bekri meze, same lovely atmosphere and some new faces front of house this year. Busier than we though it would be so late in the season and always good to see the locals having a good night out too

Zepos - (Restaurants in Kalamaki)

Carol P          10/10

Spent three evenings here with friends and had some great food,  especially loved the saganaki flamed with metaxa, and chicken souvlaki .  Phil loved the village sausage and mixed souvlaki.  Great atmosphere and staff made for some lovely evenings.

Venus Hotel - (Accommodation in Kalamaki)

Carol P          10/10
