This place is open all hours, particularly helpful if waiting for a boat to kalymnos early hours! The staff, food, service, drinks are excellent, and full of info. The name says it all, Kali Kardia, means Good Heart, and they have it in abundance! The only place to be for us in Mastihari, don't miss it! Open also in Winter!

The service was good as was the food - the swordfish was cooked well and the courgette starter was lovely. We asked for potatoes rather than chips and this was not a problem and the complimentary fruit and brandy was a nice touch as the meal was not expensive at all. Would return

Located in front of the sea in Mastichari. You can have a food looking at the sea in a relaxing stay. They propose a varied menu. Especially to go here not worth it. There are places which serves better. The food and service is very slow.

We visited and had he Seafood platter. We had high hopes given the proximity to the Aegean Sea. However, it was a very disappointing meal. The fish did not appear to be that fresh and was very over cooked.
