Its looks good but its not. Nice by the sea but the other restaurants nearby are better. The owner plays guitar well and we applauded. He gave us a beer but no drinks for the women!! Not right!! Food was ok but overpriced!

After many visits over many years, Artistico, never fails to delight: an evening of excellent food from chefs, Irene and Nikolas (green beans in tomato sauce; courgette patties with salad), great company and music provided (on guitar) by host, George, and a veritable 'orchestra' of visitors: harmonicas (three!), flute, penny-whistle, tabor and (in a musical sphere of its own) kazoo!

This bar is good, clean and facing th beach. The food is good and often there is evening entertainment, usually George playing his guitar and a good sing along. Worth a visit.

Expensive breakfast for Emporio.17.5 euros for two.Greek yoghurt with fruit was excellent as was french toast.Continental breakfast ham and cheese were tasteless processed slices.Coffee was poor despite being advertised as Illy coffee. Everywhere on the island of Kalymnos we have enjoyed fresh orange juice,unfortunately we neglected to ask if breakfast orangejuice was fresh:some kind of diluted processed juice was provided.
