We’ve just arrived from a 12 day holiday and ate here so many times during our stay. We’ve stayed in this area for the past 5 years and everytime we come back we visit Kimatogi multiple times. The man who owns this remembers us every...single time, he’s so friendly and couldn’t be more helpful, best service you will experience! The food is always amazing and you can’t beat the prices. We are always spoilt for choice with the menu there’s so many delicious dishes but make sure to always ask for the special that day! Taverna Kimatogi is literally on the beach so there’s beautiful views and the scenery is lovely. It’s also perfect for children and there’s a small play area which is so helpful with toddlers! We will be back next year!More

The restaurant is right at the beach in the beautiful town of Stalos, and the service is very good. We loved their salads (especially the shrimp salad) but everything else we ordered was also very delicious. Would definetly keep coming back here if we return...to Stalos.More

We had a very nice meal here. Fortunately we asked about the specials and had delicious fresh grilled sardines and sea bream. Good service. Rather a lot of cats around, they all looked well fed.

We (3 persons) stayed 11 days in the Esperides Beach Hotel, next to Taverna Kimatogi and usually took our lunch and dinner in the taverna. We tasted almost all dishes from menu as everyone was trying something different and shared with others. Pork, lamb, seafood,...salads and sandwiches always fresh and very tasteful. If you are there just ask recommendations from the the owner who is working as waiter and he will not disappoint you. And he gave us souvenirs when we were leaving. It was very pleasant.More

Hidden gam! Don’t look for other places. Delicious food. Excellent service. Each day great selection of sea food and fish. We’ve been there twice and each time food was really delicious.

Not sure why this did not impress me more but just didn’t. I had the chicken schnitzel and it was very good and my wife had the sea bream which they deboned for her and she really liked it. The bread at the start was...extra and was frankly a bit boring - chunks of bread with the accompanying sauces not doing it for me. Again this I is a place I would recommend people try as I think it will resonate with some.More
