Dropped in on a Thursday afternoon. Food selection was wide-ranging and our group of four sampled extensively. All of it was very good. Will visit again.

Ate here a couple of times during a recent stay, this restaurant is only open for lunch, but they serve big enough portions that you won't need much dinner! Typical freshly made Greek cuisine and displayed in traditional Greek style, you just ask and point at whatever takes your fancy and it's heated up for you. Take away also possible.... More

Very friendly, authentic Greek food at a reasonable price. When we visited, local wine was being pumped into their barrels where it lives for about 50 days before being ready. We went about Eight in the evening and lots of food on the menu had finished so get there a bit earlier.

Had the okra with beef, dandelion salad, and wine. Fresh food! Wine was ok. My wife had the Briam which consists of baked vegetables, but it was mostly potatoes. Overall was authentic but my mother in law should open up her own restaurant. Total bill was 17€.

We came here because of the wonderful reviews. Unfortunately we arrived around 6pm and they had a limited menu. However, the food that was available was delicious. We had the pork steaks and greens. Very tasty!

Great home cooking. Very traditional Greek atmosphere. It is located in the historic part of Kalamata. They make their own wine which is quite tasty. Everything is fresh. They also offer carry out. Inside or outside seating is available.

We found this restaurant by chance on our last night in Kalamata and it was our best meal since arriving in Greece. Amazing food & service, the restaurant has been family owned for 3 generations. I'm a vegetarian and there were multiple options, absolutely delicious! This family works so hard and they could not have been more welcoming. All of... More

Ta Rolla is an great authentic Greek restaurant. They have tons of great dishes. We went as a group of 5 and they didn't have any open tables so they brought two tables out of the back and set them up outside for us. We ordered the Greek salad, fried cheese (saganaki), sfela cheese, boiled greens, burgers with fries, pasticcio,... More
