“First visit and not disappointed”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

Tried this restaurant after reading reviews and was not disappointed. We had 3 starters, bread, half litre of rose wine, sprite, two swordfish (that were out of this world) and a chicken snitzel. All for the sum of 57 euros. Very happy, full up and contented! Will definately be returning during our trip. A must visit.

“Another unforgetable visit”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We have been visiting Almiryda for over 20 years. and always return to Thalamis to eat. The service and choice remains outstanding. always good sea food but do also try thier traditional meats, just as worth a visit. It has remained good value over the years, family run with outstanding values.

“A taste of sunshine”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

Having visited several of the restaurants along the seafront at Almyrida, Thalami has become a family favourite. The service is excellent - always a smile and a joke - and great with the kids too. The food is delicious - the fresh fish in particular is beautifully cooked from the Grilled Sardines to the Mussels Saganaki to the Sea Bass and Swordfish, everything we have had has been done to a tee. Meat dishes have been just as good with moist Souvlaki and crispy schnitzels. Both the food and the service reflect the warmth of the Greek sunshine.

“Wonderful food, friendly staff”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at the Thalami restaurant recently. Delicious food. Very good value and fresh fish cooked superbly. Traditional Greek dishes of tzasiki and giant beans were a highlight. But everything was delicious. Can't fault a thing. Free dessert and raki to finish the meal was a lovely gesture too. Well worth a visit if you're in town.

“Lovely seafront fish restaurant”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Visited on the 2nd night of our holiday, following recommendations. The restaurant was quite busy (we took that to be a good sign), and we were not disappointed. It has a very good location on the beach front, with several different seating areas. Although we were not seated at a beach-side table, we still had good views over the bay. Service was very attentive without being rushed or "starched". There was a good choice of fish and seafood dishes, including daily specials, as well as a range of the standard meat dishes. In comparison to other restaurants, it might be thought a little expensive, but it's worth it. Swordfish, sea beam and prawns (usually called shrimps in Crete) were all excellent. The cheapest bottle of Cretan wine (not the carafe of house wine) was good value at €10 and there was even attention to detail in the ice bucket and apron for the bottle. Finger wipes were also thoughtfully provided.

The complimentary dessert was a pleasant surprise, as we had only experienced watermelon at other restaurants (this was a small portion of a tiramisu type of cake, just the right size and very light).

We would have gone back later in the week, if there hadn't been so many others to try!
