Cave Bar

Bars in Kalamaki

Because this bar is higher up and set into the side of the hill it needs decent warmish weather so usually doesn't open until the last week or so in May (weather permitting but does use gas heaters though) and definitely worth a visit. So different to your 'usual' type' of bar. Family owned, they are lovely people and very helpful. You can either stroll up the slight incline to it (approx 100 yds) or jump in the free buggy. Situated near the taxi rank on the Kalamaki Old Road. It has a castle turret to watch the sunset over Kalamaki and a cave area with tables (mind your head lol) One of our favourite bars with decent music too.(p.s. its only a bar, not a restaurant)

Does anyone know how we go about booking this restaurant as I wouldn't want to get there and they're fully booked or closed.  Going in June so expecting it to be very busy.  Many thanks

I can confirm this bar was open the last week of May 2012. We went there on our first night and subsequently went there a couple more times during the week.

A nice young lady takes you up and down the short road to the bar in a buggy but you can walk the distance if you fancy as it's not far. Very welcoming staff and great variety of cocktails. It is a very picturesque bar with music playing and the views are fab. Great to watch the sun go down looking over Kalamaki and the sea.
Very popular and definitely has to be visited if staying in Kalamaki.

I visited the Cave Bar probably 20 years ago now when it was owned by an English guy (form Essex?). It was the place to go as Kalamaki was the only a sleepy little fishing port. Any body else remember him (was it John?)

Love this place.

After a hard day on the beach,an evening unwinding at the Cave is a must.  Great hosts, late music,
beautiful setting, and the drinks are the real thing.
Another plus is that you can actually be driven there and back by Sarah in the moke.

Once again we are going back to Kalamaki and this is definately our favourite bar.  Looking forward to seeing you all.  We are bringing along some members of our family to enjoy this wonderful bar and wonderful sights from the turrets.  See you all in about 5 weeks time.

Sue F          7/10

Definitely worth a look although drinks are slightly more expensive than elsewhere. Would have liked to have gone during the day as well to see the view from the turret.

Hayden S          5/10

Very nice bar, good setting with a pleasant view over the town, very steep prices for drinks though, dearest in Kalamaki, but worth a visit

Alan B          10/10

Can't go to Zante without visiting this excellent chill out bar. The setting is perfect and ideal to see the sunset. Drinks are reasonably priced as well for such a stunning place.

Hello Nico, Hope you and your family are well.  

Had the best times ever in the beautiful Cave Bar, around 1993, used to meet up there every night after work with all the other bar/restaurant workers, every nationality. Had the best time ever, memories....
And how is your handsome son Yannis and your beautiful daughter?
 The best Brandy Alexanders Cocktail ever, never tasted anything near since and also the music, Dr Hook and mixture of good stuff - well at the time was good...Hope it is still similar, will be back after ten years next year...
Everyone the best bar in Zantes with a little class!!! Barbara xxx
