“What a nightmare”
Review of Calypso

Description: A restaurant with a great reputation both in Greece and abroad. Our international visitors have spread our name all over Europe and we are mentioned in every tourist guide that involves Ithaca and Kioni. All our dishes are cooked with greek olive oil and the freshest ingredients. Our fish is provided by the local fishermen and our meat comes from the local market to support the local economy.

We've been waiting more than 50 minutes to eat what we've ordered. The wine became hot while waiting and the grilled shrimps were cold (not to mention that the salad was served without oil vinegar and salt).
Overall a bad experience. Definatly not the first restaurants in Kioni.

Dear Customer,

We are sorry for the disappointing experience that you describe. However, it was on the busiest night of this season with a local festival taking place and dozens of people waiting to be served simultaneously. Under such difficult circumstances, it is only human that there might be some delay in the orders although our staff always do their best to satisfy every single guest. We hope to have the chance to offer you a more memorable experience in the future.

We've eaten here several times over the past 4 years and love it. It's a family run restaurant with quite an extensive menu - lovely fresh fish and tranquil setting by the harbour. Flori is always a gentleman and service is impeccable.

One more summer holiday spent in beautiful Kioni with the owners of Calypso spoiling us with their beautiful dishes and divine desserts and above everything with their genuine kindness and hospitality. A place that combines excellent food and great views of Kioni harbor with the essence of greek "filoxenia". What more can a traveller ask for?

Typical Greek taverna on the marina. Excellent freshly prepared food. The zuccini and feta triangles, tho onion pie and the stuffed vine leaves were all superb. The service could be improved , but the food makes up for it.
