We shouldn't have bothered to walk up the hill to restaurant as empty probably due to being over priced for poor food. My red snappy was nothing special but the chips were old ones reheated and not edible. The view is good but we won't...More

We visited Kastos in a sailboat and loved the experience. Chef John's was the cherry on the top. Our first visit was for a coffee and to use the wifi (fast wifi!) . We so enjoyed the view and conversing (in English) with the welcoming...More

Stunning views over the tiny port and anchorage. The food is good. No menu, order from the blackboards. The house wine is average. Good value, good food but a shame I couldn't give it 5 stars. The food is not quite good enough.

It is a bit of a walk up with a confusing sign but just keep going left!! Wonderful views and great food. Family run business and everyone is happy to come and chat. Added bonus is a washing machine so if your beach towels need...More

The view is well worth the steep walk up to Chef John's. We visited here before the real heat of day kicked in so the walk wasn't too bad. When we arrived we were warmly greeted and our order taken (omelettes, juice and coffee). The...More
