Truly wonderful authentic Greek cooking. Don't hesitate, just go. Outstanding in every way. The grilled octopus is fantastic.

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

Delicious prawn pasta called shrimps in menu but more like tiger prawns in reality. Delicious sea urchin cocktail Apart from rather hard rye bread served with staters everything really top notch

Perhaps odd to find in a Marina restaurant - but the gold here is the pasta which is all hand made and which is some of the best pasta i (and wife) have ever eaten . The quality and the flavours would not be out of place in a fine dining restaurant - and this place is not expensive. Service... More

A great fish and pasta restaurant that the quality and the taste is at a different level considering that you are in Kalamata, a small town in Peloponisos. The pumpkin risotto is a must have. Fast and freindly service by the owner himself while wife is in the kitchen. The 80km driving to eat here was worth it.

Home made pasta with lobster ... simply unforgettable. Most people don't know, that there is 70 years gastronomic history behind the name "Kannas".

Bizarre combination ... Fish and pasta. However good food. They have a chef although the locals appreciate more traditional cuisine this the plates are closer to their standards. For tourists and those who knows about international food, I would say that the Italian dishes were good and tasty. If you are looking for a traditional Greek taverna with mezze don't... More

We were looking for another restaurant in the top 10 of Trip Advisor but decided to sit down at Kannas, as it was quite full while the other one totally empty :-) Best decision we made, as the food was authentic Italian (carpaccio, rigatoni arabiatta, fabulous pizza) and the Greek owner/host took such pride in his products and explained to...
