Dining options: After-hours, Breakfast, Reservations
Description: Real home cooking by Aleka and Evdokia, with fresh ingredients from the garden or of local production, make eating here an unforgettable experience. Our menu varies, depending on what is good and fresh since we do not rely mainly on the market for raw materials. The Mediterranean kitchen is one of the healthiest of the planet and this is what you will enjoy at Harry's!Of course you can have your breakfast with us! Fresh eggs from our neighbor's chickens, vegetarian dishes, home-made marmalades by Evdokia, and a large menu variety which changes often, depending on what goodies we find! Having your own olive trees comes handy too, since we use our own oil in the kitchen.The restaurant is mentioned (and recommended) in the Michelin Guide for the islands, the Guide de Routard, the Lonely Planet Guide, the Trotter etc. Recently, and after passing the relevant tests, it has been awarded enlisting in the Aegean Cuisine Initiative.

I love this place.
Just 50 meter on the road to the harbour in Emborios you find this fantastic restaurant with delicious and excuisite food - mostly vegetarian.
Don´t forget to relax in the amazing flowergarten - for example in the hammock :-)

I spent a few hours in this magical place hidden from the main street. We had a few friends in a kayaking trip in Greece and stopped there for rest and lunch, the food was very tasty,the family are very nice . The food was mostly vegetables and cheese and taste heavenly.

“Outstanding Aegean Cuisine in a tranquil setting”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

I hesitated to recommend Harry’s Paradise in Emborios on Kalymnos because some places are best kept secret. But this family owned and run restaurant is exceptional in every way and it would be selfish not to tell others. The food, described as ‘Creative Aegean Cuisine’, is indeed imaginative, a brilliant combination of flavours and textures, made with top quality local ingredients, very well cooked, and stylishly presented. They even rinse the cutlery in vinegar water so there are no smears. Typical of the quality and friendliness of the service. The menu changes regularly and included among the outstanding dishes are stuffed squid, stuffed tenderloin of pork .... and Leka’s mousaka is the only rendering of the traditional dish that I will eat. The garden setting has been created from a barren limestone field by years of hard work and is now a mass of lovingly tended exotic plants and flowers. If you want more lemon on your meal, pick one off the tree (asking first of course). Slightly inland from the beach it is sheltered and peaceful even when the Meltemi blasts in from the sea. It is difficult to imagine a better setting, best summed up by the Greek word 'ησυχία' meaning tranquillity. It's the Restaurant at the End of the Universe, having got there you'll not want to go any further .... even if you could. The one downside is that the bus service is very poor, adequate to get you there and back for a midday meal but for an evening you will need you own transport unless you are staying in the apartments at the back of the garden. But it’s worth travelling to even from Pothia at the other end of the island. One condition --- leave a table for me.
