It's rare to find a restaurant that combines enjoyably filling dishes, smiley service and a beautiful atmosphere. The restaurant is ideally placed by the yacht marina offering a peaceful sunny view of the sea. The service is ideal with friendly waiters attending to our every need (definitely worth a big tip) and the restaurant owner, Mr. Kannas himself, will explain... More

First came to Kalamata ten or more years ago. Even better now! Great smile from Michael and delicious menu of pasta and fish. Last time though I ate veal ravioli with a crumb of Italian sausage and a salad of Gorgonzola and pears. Poli poli nostimo! Bravo!

The restaurant is located in the Western part of the Kalamata port and in the summer it must have a fantastic view of the seaside. However, in the winter you can enjoy the inside: a great Italian atmosphere!!! The food quality was outstanding and the service very friendly. We enjoyed the salads and appetizers (tuna carpaccio) and of course the... More

A friendly & cozy restaurant. Very well furnished. Went here at Christmas & had a great meal. Returned with some more friends for a similar experience. Lovely staff & excellent service, but, Ordered oysters from menu as a starter - They were small scallops, not oysters, no problem as such, as I like scallops...Maybe a glitch in translation, but perhaps...

Can't fault this place- just gets better! Prawn salad to share was devine with avocado and freshly grilled prawns. Fillet with green pepper and garlic potatoes and honey carrots was lush! Sea bass filets were wrapped around lobster sized prawns and just something special! All sauces and dressings are unique and lift everything to a new level. Complimentary dessert of... More

We have eaten here already several times, and will again many more times over the winter. Lovely cosy ambience, very attentive service, amazing pasta, fabulous veal in Marsala, and the most incredible filet steak, cooked to perfection, melt in the mouth, and with fresh peppercorn sauce. Fabulous! I am looking forward to working my way through the menu, and highly... More

Took a while to walk to this restaurant from the main part of town - you may want to grab a taxi - but it was worth it for the food. Baby squid, octopus carpaccio, and lovely "shrimps" ( prawns to us) were all good starters and almost a meal in themselves. No need to worry about portion size !... More
