its like an actual cave and the cool mote buggy that takes you up it was good on the back
Liked this bar very much and is a great place to watch the sunset. Great atmosphere and even a free ride up to the bar on a small buggy. i would only recommend sitting on the back seat if you have a strong grip. we only came here on one occasion as it wasnt open for the full time we were there but it is a really relaxed place.
Great Bar, however, we were disappointed to see it closed on the 12th of October when we arrived. Obviously closed early for the winter. The owner was sat in Michaelos on the 4 occasions we were there.
excellent bar! :) woo! miss u yiannis n nikos! hope to come and work with you soon! xxx
By far the nicest bar in kalamaki, we thoroughly enjoyed the cocktails, surroundings, and the general aatmosphere around the place!!!! Paul and Laura xx- Redditch, West Midlands
WENT BACK BACK TO THE CAVE BAR TWICE ON THIS HOLIDAY ALL I CAN SAY IS GREAT
Once again Yannis made us very welcome. This is the best bar in Kalamaki
We went here back in June for a drink and was a nice place. We came back yesterday and found that it was closed on the days we went past -not too sure why.
Our first time at this bar, and for a wedding too!!! Stunning location, and a very attractive bar area. Lovely for a romantic evening watching the sunset. We will be trying it again next year
great place, not as far as it seems to walk but we got the free buggy ride up. we only went ont the 1night but wish we went everynight.nice view ontop of the turret,shame our photos are to dark as it was getting on at night. Not open in the daytime though which was a disapointment.
What a great place.Its lovely and everything looks so nice.We wre like kids exploring all over it.The ride up was great fun with Fred and Barney on the back
A must do whilst in kalamaki. Nothing quite like it. take the "buggy" ,get driven up the hill and enjoy your drink. Cocktails lovely and the view is wonderful from the turret as the sun goes down. Well worth visiting.
The view here is fantastic!! If you get the mini moke up to the cave before 8 o'clock and take your drink up to the turret. then you can watch the sun go down over Kalamaki. It is well worth the journey. Drinks are a little dearer but you soon forget when you have such a brilliant view. The service is brilliant as well, nothing is too much trouble!!
cave bar is the best bar i have ever been to in my life it is really romantic and the views are brill
great little bar with great views but a little expensive, but then again in line with alot of other bars in kalamaki, thanks for the crack every1 see ya next year
try 2 go up there wen 1 of d mountains ar on fire coz you get a great view cool car to get up there 2
We had drank here before and cannot wait to go back in September. See you soon guys
The Cave Bar is still up there with the chilled out best, but even the ride up the hill in the buggy is a bit special this year. Dave has got some serious driving competition now with their new lady driver---the place just gets better!!!
You have to go here….no must, may or meant to!
It's great! Go to enjoy the sunsets, the cocktails, the service (and tip well).
I met loads of people who kept meaning to go and got side tracked… after they saw the pictures they regretted it sooo much so be clever and get there early
Lots of love to Nikos and Yiannis, hope you are both well….so sorry I won't be able to come out this year. Thank you again for all your help and laughs last year…
Hopefully see you soon for a cranberry juice
PS. Send my love to Labros and Tasos too …..Yasooo!!
Yannis & Nikko we will miss seeing you this year, we couldnt get booking for where & when we wanted, but we are on the case for next year, we are all looking forward to seeing you both again and spending several nights @ the fabulous Cave Bar, it the BEST bar in Kalamaki, please say hello to Dave (mini moke) Yannis hope you have finished all the "cheesy wotsits"!!!! The look on you face was Here are a couple of pics so you can still remember us. Look forward to seeing you all soon.
I am currently putting together a list of acts that may be suitable for various venues in Zante for summer season 2006. I have most of musicians/singers/hosts and am currently looking for speciality acts. While I was working in Zante last year I caught the brilliant close up magic act of a very, very funny Scottish magician, I think his name was Paul and he was based in either Kalamaki or Laganas. At the time I met him for a drink (Cave Bar in Kalamaki although I dont think he was working this venue) he was doing 'freelance' entertainment work around the various bars and hotels in Kalamaki and Laganas. I had his contact details but have managed to lose them.... If anyone knows this guy, please point him in my direction or send me his details. Thanks, Dean.
After hearing about the cave bar we walked up the main road and jumped into the mini moke that runs you up the hill...we were not disappointed the views were WOW !!! It is a lovely place to relax and chill brill music and the staff were very good at their jobs helpful and quick to serve you. it is just the place to go to if you want to watch the sunset and chillout for a few hours... WELL RECOMMENDED
What a great place the cave bar is great views over kalamaki and great to watch the sun go down very relaxing place. This is a bar you should visit whilest staying in kalamaki.
The Cave Bar is a lovely spot for chilling out. It's down the far end of Kalamaki from the airport end. You can get a mini moke lift up or walk up if you're feeling energetic but it's only 2 mins in the free buggy! Sunset is gorgeous up there with fab views from the turrett. There is nothing more relaxing than sipping on a cocktail and watching the sun set and then the lights of kalamki & laganas twinkling away in the dark. The music was good and alot of locals seem to go there at the weekends which is a good sign! It made a pleasant change from the other bars down on the main strip. The staff very nice, especially an english girl (not sure of her name but she hurt her foot and was limping!) And the guy who drives the buggy was a nice friendly chap too! Definitely worth a visit!
The Cave Bar was brill! It had a lovely, chilled out atmosphere, and the cocktails were amazing. I'm missing my Honey Girl cocktail already, and we've only been home a day!
yiannis, paul getting emotional he was sobbing his little heart out, bless his little cotton socks.
the cave bar is s**t hot u must go there its the best bar ever!!
Great bar, really laid back, amazing views, nuff said.
The views form the top of the turret are fantastic. Cocktail list is great.
GREAT PLACE TO CHILL OUT AND WATCH THE SUNSET,LOOK AT MY PHOTOS.

We had a lovely time at the cave bar. it was very romantic. for me and my other half.
must be 1 of the best views on the island, great sunset from in the turet and the cave is so cool at night time, thanks to all the staff for the fun and ice cold beers.
NOTHING MORE TO SAY AS ALL THE COMMENTS BELOW SUM THIS PLACE UP.
PLACE - BEAUTIFUL
STAFF- VERY FRIENDLY
PLEASE VISIT THIS PLACE IN THE EVENING AS THE SUNSET FROM THE TURRETT IS BREATH-TAKING
A VERY BEAUTIFULL PLACE TO RELAX AND DRINK COCKTAILS UP IN THE MOUNTAIN SIDE.
We went to the cave bar 3 times while we was in kalamaki and we have a lovely time. the owner and his son are very nice people. as so are the waitresses. i would recommend to anyone going to kalamaki to try the cave bar the atmosphere is just wonderfull.. It sure is a beautifull view in the evenings.
Such a lovely place with great views over Kalamaki. Worth a visit in the day, but also at night to get the best views. Lovely cocktail menu too. The buggy ride up to it was great fun too!
the cave bar was ok its not really for children like myself but its great for adults its very romantic and theres a great view from the top bye xxxxxx
we visited the cave bar during are stay at kalamaki and we liked it. the man who drove the buggy was very pleasant and it was a nice little ride up there.
the place was very cosy and warm. we went up to the tower part and drank our drinks were you coild see the whole of zante.
thanks for adding that little bit extra to our holiday.
love stacey xx
Defo one of the best bars in Kal. Enjoyed many relaxing nights there towards end of Sept. They now have a few gas heaters to sit under when evenings get a bit cooler (at end of season). Well Recommended. Look forward to visiting again.
cool place and good cocktails
take advantage of the buggy ride up there irs cool
mind your head on the caves tho!!!!
We visited this bar several times on our holiday. Great place. It is a must!!!
it ws wkd tha ride up ws tha best bit!! nice drinks 2 mostly old ppl ther but we livened it up :D
TO DAMONE THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP I WILL DEFINATLY GO AND CHECK IT OUT THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN AND THERE WEB SITE LOOKS GREAT
To Andrew Randerson, The ideal restaurant for you would be zakanoah.Its a nice romantic setting not too far from the bars but also quiet, in fantastic surroundings, great food and service. Not sure where the waterpark is but you get a free bus with your ticket.Kalamaki is the best place to be in Zante with laganas 5 mins away if you want the life or vasilikos beaches 15 mins away by far the best beaches on the island but too quiet for a whole holiday.Av a good un.
Cracking little bar in an ideal setting, take your camera and dont forget to tip your driver!
After reading the comments before my holiday, I felt the place was overrated. The setting is lovely and the barmen are nice guys, but it's not the end of the world if you don't have time to visit this place.
thank you danny for your reply i will check them out when i get there
For me the CAve Bar is the best place for a drink, and the Zakanoh restaurant is by far the nicest setting for a meal. Not the cheapest but certainly not expensive and the food is lovely.
Sorry don't know about the water park.
I,VE 2 QUESTIONS
1ST IN OCTOBER IM TAKING MY FAMILY TO KALAMAKI AND IVE READ THERES A NEW WATER PARK DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE IT IS AND PRICES
2ND ITS MY WIFES BIRTHDAY WHEN WERE THERE WHERE IS A VERY NICE PLACE TO TAKE HER FOR SOMETHING FANTASTIC TO EAT AND DRINK ITS HER 30 TH BIRTHDAY SO I WANT TO CELIBRATE IN STYLE PLEASE HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP THANK YOU
a cool buggie ride up there by some friendly people, great views at the top very romantic in the caves or on top of the castle turrety kind of thing but also some nice chair in open spaces, if u want 2 take pictures of kalamaki make sure u go there, its off the t-junction turning right if u come from the main strip of shops
Yannis, the smooth-talking bar-steward at The Cave Bar will serve you Sex on the Beach. But be warned girls, he is no English Stallion. In fact, he isn't even a gentleman, but fortunately his memory will pass as quickly as a Summer Breeze.
WHAT A GREAT PLACE TO VISIT.YOU WOULD NEVER THINK SUCH A GREAT PLACE EXISTED UP A HILL IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE.THE RIDE UP WAS A RELIEF AS I WOULD NOT HAVE HAD THE MUST FOR THE WALK.YOU GET PICKED UP AND DROPPED OFF WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED YOUR DRINKS.MAKE SURE YOU TAKE THE CAMERA.THE IRISH COFFEE WAS THE BEST ONE YET
WELL WORTH A VISIT TO THE CAVE BAR,MAKE SURE YOU GET THERE FOR THE SUNSET,AS THE VIEWS ARE FANTASTIC,TAKE YOUR CAMERA!!!
Such a beautiful bar - such a shame it was so empty on the 3 nights we went. Hope it gets busier again. Oh and try the Cave Lady cocktail!!!!!!
This has got to be the best bar on the island. I don't think you could ask for a better location. Try a Blue Hawaiian cocktail which is superb.
Lovely bar, nice atmosphere, nice setting but what do you have to do to get another round in. Like most bars they offer a table service, but whats the point of this if the waiting staff rarely bother to check if you want more drinks? We had one drink but got fed up of waiting, so we left.
Love the cave bar - it's an unusual place, but very cool. Have never experienced a bar like it before. It can be very romantic if there's 2 of you. Sit up in the turret and enjoy a cocktail , whilst admiring the view of Zante below. The free transport is a nice touch too and the guy who drives is always very charming.
This place is simply the best and Nico and his team are great - really make you feel welcome!!The whole atmosphere is very chilled very relaxed. The gardens are fab - It simply is just a great place to chill out after a hard day sleeping on the beach!
Made our holiday!
What a wonderful bar! Once we discovered it we always went to round off the day....and propped up the bar all night! I can't remember ever loving a place so much, and I've been in a fair few in my time. We've only been home a couple of days and I miss it already. Giannis is gorgeous - a greek God of a barman - and made me an indecent amount of cocktails :) Dave and Richard drive the MiniMoke which is trememdous fun, they're both lovely too. I can't praise this place highly enough, and I can't wait to get back! We invented a new cocktail with Giannis - ask him for a 'Caretta Caretta' Yia mas!
What a wonderful way to relax, the atmosphere of this bar is wonderful, and the views from the turret are a must, especially if you can catch the sunset.
