Found this restaurant by accident but what a happy accident. Food was amazing and wine suggestions equally so. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly and we left with full bellies (and a doggy bag to take home). A special mention has to be made to...More

The food was the best Greek meal I have ever had, the service first class. From starter to desert it was simply superb. Although we were only in London for 5 days we had dinner here twice.

Dear Julien, Thank you for your comments. You are quite right, we have to give the flyers out as we are not allowed to put up advertising signs by the local Council, so no one can find us without them. The TV is there just...More

The atmosphere was great, service quick and polite. The only minor issue is that our table was only suitable for two people and sitting three of us there was a squeeze. The service and actual food made up for that! I enjoyed watching a World...More

I love this place and have been going for years. The food is very Greek and delicious. The service is always great with a smile. One of the best Greek restaurants in London. It is well hidden but worth the hunt.

Description
Founded in 1966 and hidden in a quiet mews off Queensway, we offer fantastic authentic Greek food with a warm welcome and friendly service. Over the years we have had many famous people regularly dine here including the Beatles, Peter Sellers and his friends, racing drivers Graham and Damon Hill, also many actors and actresses, such as Telly Savalas (Kojak), Faye Dunaway, Irene Pappas, Mick Jagger and many other well-known names of the 60’s, 70’s and the present day. But it is not just the stars; many people have always loved dining here: members of the local, international and Greek Bayswater communities, as well as students and tourists who visit London. They all like the friendly and informal atmosphere and the healthy Greek food. We invite you to join us and carry on the glorious tradition of Kalamaras.
