“Second time is even better.”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

Fresh salads. Heavenly lamb. Great ambience. Wine is not so…who comes to Greece for the wine anyways? Go for the local Kissamos retsina. It always goes well with the local dishes. the restaurant is very busy with locals on the weekends.

“Too much on the menu and too little taste”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

The Gramvousa Restaurant is a large restaurant next to the church of Kaliviani, a village not far from Kissamos, on the road to Balos. There are seating areas inside, but there is also a very large terrace. The menu of the restaurant is overwhelming: there is far too much on it, making it almost impossible to make a choice. The waiter has trouble taking the order, because we need to repeat each dish three times, because I think he himself doesn't know anymore what he has got on his menu. We order the meatballs, the anthousa (stuffed zucchini flowers) and Gramvousa salad (with creamy goat cheese, potatoes, tomato and onion). We immediately get a carafe with cold water on the table. All dishes look fantastic and nice, but there's not much flavor to them. Nice for a photo. The fries were not crunchy, and we are a little disappointed and not really impressed. When we were here a few years earlier the place was smaller, the menu was smaller and the food much nicer.
