This restaurant is situated by the seaside promenade in central Kamari. We stayed at a hotel nearby and ate both lunch and dinner here a few times. We were happy with our choice, especially in comparison to other restaurants at the site. We gladly returned after trying some other places. We can recommend traditional soups (onion soup). This restaurant has... More

We had lunch and dinner here several times. The food was good and the staff were ver smiley and friendly. We were not given any of the horrible sweet drinks after our meal, but were given a plate of Greek yoghurt and cherries, which was lovely! Thank you xx

Greek night here was fantastic, Buzzing. waiters can be a bit pushy on getting you in here and seem to concentrate more on getting new punters in than your service but still nice food..

My boyfriend and I went to the Boathouse for a late dinner the other night. We were enticed by the Greek music and dancing. We walked up and down and later regretted picking this place. The food tasted old and microwaved. Another couple sat down and were giving plates to break without even asking. Outside the restaurant it says "free... More

We visited twice, once for dinner, and later again for lunch. The service was very friendly and nice. By accident we ended up in one of these Greek evenings, and it's fun to watch. The food is solid Greek cuisine, Stifado was very good, Souvlaki rather average, though not bad. The only real downside was the house wine: Serving it... More

My Husband and I visited here on our first night in Kamari. We enjoyed a wonderful meal and great service. All the staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. Because of this we returned twice more during our weeks stay, with even more family for their Greek Nights. This was traditional music, dancing and plate... More

I specifically went to this restaurant because I wanted the entire Greek dancing experience with plate breaking and the whole nine yards and it did not disappoint. I know some people might turn up their noses at me for partaking in such elementary behavior but as a first time visitor to Greece I couldn't help myself. My hubby and I... More

After a long disappointing morning, this restaurant was the perfect fix! It is family run, the people are so friendly, helpful, and very sweet. We ordered sagnaki (fried cheese...
