Really excellent family lunch - daily specials were first rate (chicken in the oven w/rosemary potatoes, stuffed aubergines), as were the mixed appetisers (see photo!).

Our favourite restaurant in Kalives. Visited 4 times and had a delicious meal each time. The Kleftico was something special. Most restaurants offer complimentary cake after the meal but none compared with Icarus. Wine was good. Friendly service. Small and intimate. Just perfect.

We had several delicious meals here, with the fresh fish being the highlight. Although a small restaurant, it is on the beachfront, and the breeze is much appreciated. The owners are very helpful and welcoming.

Icarus is a great place for really good homecooked food and lovely service. We had our lunch there every day of our week in Kalyves and got great, reasonably priced, food every time. The portions are large, so be careful not to order too much....More
