This was our first night back again on Ithaca and on our previous visit we ate here many times but sadly we felt the standard had slipped this time. We both had moussaka but quite honestly it wasn't good and arrived surrounded by chips! Will...More

There are many restaurants in Vathy and so competition is high and to be honest wherever you eat the food is good. However, this time we were somewhat disappointed. Our starters... in English....courgette balls were very cold in the middle... they possibly could've been frozen....More

Not always the busiest taverna/ grill in the town, but that is slightly misleading as the quality of the food , exceeds that of its local rivals. Excellent ranges of pork and lamb available from the grill and cooked to order. House wines are fine...More

My parents and I ate twice at Kalkanis during our week long stay in Vathi - one of only two places that we tried more than once. Both meals were among the best we had on the island. We tried their lamb kontosouvli, grilled octopus...More
