“Stunning Views and a Welcome Lunch Stop”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

We were staying in Chania and had taken a drive to beautiful Elafonissi. On the return trip from Elafonissi beach we travelled the coast road to Kissamos. All by itself stands Meltemi and we took a chance and pulled in for lunch - and when we arrived we were the only one there. Really glad we stopped. Lovely home cooked greek food and lovely warm people.

If you're passing by we'd recommend stopping in. Oh, and by the way, the view to the Libyan Sea is absolutely breathtaking

“Meltemi is the best restaurant in Kissamos area”
Reviewed 30 November 2009

We stayed in Amigdalokefali for 3 weeks and tried many restaurants in the local area and surrounding villages and towns. Meltemi, set on its beautiful perch of rock with sweeping views across the sea, was outstanding in the quality of the food and cooking, the friendliness and intelligence of its staff, and its overall cleanliness. We ended up returning there many times during our stay. It is well worth a visit even if you are passing through.

“Definately the best ecological goat's meat with an unsurpassed view and sunset!”
Reviewed 28 November 2009

The Meltemi Restaurant serves the best goats meat - cooked with the herbs from the mountains where the goats were raised. Three varieties; fried, cooked with tomatoes or the speciality of Crete: Pilaffi! They also make a delicious mousaka! And of course - the cooked greens: horta. The view from the restaurant is unique - choose an evening when you will see the full moon coming up behind the mountains while the sun is setting in the Libyan sea! That's the way to enjoy your ouzo!
