“Awful Service”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

We were convinced to try this restaurant by a pleasant guy at front of house. He said he was going for the menu and then promptly ignored us whilst trying to get more people into the restaurant. We coudn't attract anyone elses attention and decided to leave (after trying to get attention for 10 minutes). The family on the next table had menus, but had not been looked after either. They took our lead and left behind us.

“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

We had a lovely relaxing meal at Kassaba with good food and the manager, Barry, is friendly and helpful without being over the top. I find the comment on an earlier review about him being mean to a stray dog surprising as after clearing plates from one of the tables he took a lamb shank bone over to the grass area by the beach and gave it to one of the local dogs. Not really the actions of someone who is mean to animals.

The restaurant does not have a wine list to choose from but we asked for the house wine and this was fine so not really an issue.

Would definitely recommend.

“Great food in a great setting”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

Kassaba Restaurant, part of the Golden Moon group which runs a property and hotel operation in Calis Beach, is situated on the waterfront and offers a very comprehensive menu. Barry and his staff are very attentive and go out of their way to ensure that, wherever possible, even meals not mentioned on the menu, can be provided. Arguably one the best liver and onions in Calis - try it - it melts in the mouth!

“Very good food and service”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

This is the first restaurant on the Calis beach stretch as you turn right off the main road leading down from the roundabout.

We had passed it every day whilst here and decided to eat here on our last day and so pleased we did! Beautiful table linen, crockery and cutlery were a good start. An extensive menu and great service added to making it a very nice experience. The food was great and sitting here watching the sunset was fantastic. Definitely recommend

“Worth a try”
Reviewed 20 July 2013 via mobile

Went for a meal here and food was nice ok value for money and a good choice. What ruined it for me if I'm honest was the staffs attitude to a lovely stray dog he wasn't bothering anyone and the owner of kassaba was poking him with a brush and being meen and as an animal lover for me that was it experience ruined however the food was nice
