Kaleo's nearly didn't get me inside - the external appearance made me question going in. I am so pleased that I did, though; it has become a favourite and regular spot to eat. Great staff, great food, beautifully prepared and presented. It's a great experience...More

The first impression wasn't the best, as the hostess wasn't really friendly and seemed annoyed by coming guests. However bartender was amazing, the waitress was very friendly, food was just delicious and the life music add on romantic atmosphere and you could feel the local...More

This little gem has great food as well as good cocktails and an impressive wine list. This is the best place in town, hands down, no contest.
