Colourful and vibrant cafe with lovely views, free wifi, excellent homemade lemonade and good selection of drinks / snacks. We had a milkshake, lemonade and coffee which was a little expensive at €9.30.

Great sunset view, good for a drink and romantic setting. We didnt eat here as we found much better place for our taste in the same small village but the soft lemonade drinks were nice and sunset view spectacular.

We sat here for about an hour and had a lovely coffee and some crepes. I wanted to try the chocolate cake which is quite famous apparently but I was too full from lunch in Nostos, Mastichari. Well worth a visit for the desserts and the view of Kalymnos. A nice touch is that they have binoculars on the tables... More

After walking to the top of the village on the mountain top on a hot sunny very beautiful day, this watermill was very welcome for a rest and refreshment. They make their own lemonade which was absolutely delicious and the most refreshing drink ever. Just to sit in a pretty courtyard looking out at the amazing views sipping ice cold... More
