Our favourite restaurant in Kalives. Visited 4 times and had a delicious meal each time. The Kleftico was something special. Most restaurants offer complimentary cake after the meal but none compared with Icarus. Wine was good. Friendly service. Small and intimate. Just perfect.

A lovely simple beach side taverna. We had lunch there every day. Very relaxed, great value and free sunbeds if you have food. The owners are very laid back, let the tab run through the day and then we settled at close. Lovely place.

But by far one of the most nicely set out inside, clean airy, tables almost on the beach. The best selection of seafood/fish in the town Ive seen by a longway. Seats are a bit hard for a long stay, but draft Alfa beer was...More
