This is also an excellent choice for brunch or dinner. Their fish was excellent. I had a fish called "skathari" (can't find the translation but it may be a type is sea bream.). It was deliciously prepared on the grill with lemon, oil, and herbs. As a side I had "horiatiki" or village salad with Greek fried potatoes. The meal was topped off with complimentary dessert of a lemon cake and custard with caramel sauce served with a carafe of "Raki", the local moonshine. The only down side was their house red wine which I wasn't fond of. Otherwise a very good meal!

Visited this taverna 3 times during our last visit to Kalives. The food is the best. Could not fault anything. Pleasant friendly staff and we were not rushed at all. Large portions but too good to waste! Our favourite this year and last year.

We were recommended this as a good seafood place in Kalives by friends who live nearby and weren't disappointed. Lovely food and a great location right next to the sea. Go early or book as it gets full later in the evening.

My partner and I adore good seafood, so this restaurant was a mecca for us.
John Daskalakis, the joint owner, was a delightful host; friendly, chatty and with a mischievous sense of humour!
We visited three times in one week eating swordfish, octopus, calamari and sardines. All were fresh, superbly cooked and delicious.
We also drank the local wines, both white and red and would recommend them.
Overall, a great experience and excellent value for money.
Thanks for your great hospitality John!
