We have visit Emporios for many years, and 2016 Kastri is still the best restaurant for having a nice meal. Maria the owner takes care of us. She makes lovely Greek food. When you came to Emporios, just pass the girls trying to place you in the first restaurant in the front road, and walk another 10 meters to Kastri.... More

We are in Kalymnos on a climbing trip and ate lunch here three days in a row -- salads, fish, spinach, and so on. The owner and her helper are friendly and the food is excellent. There is a little beach area if you want to relax and swim afterwards.

There are three prominent tavernas along the strip of beach in Emporios harbor. Two of them—Captain Kostas and Dreamcatcher--are usually crowded. One—the one in the middle--is almost always empty. Kastri. Too bad--for everyone--because Kastri is the best. By far. We know because we’ve spent more than 3 weeks on our sailboat, hanging around Emborios. We’ve eaten in all three, many... More

We cannot rate this restaurant high enough - so we took 25 of our family all the way to Kalymnos and especially to Maria's restaurant for a very special 40th Birthday feast that lasted the whole day! Maria and Manolis and her staff were exceptional, we had a wedding style family table with flowers and decorations right on the waters... More

I do not know where all the nice comments come from....service was slow although nice, stuffed tomatoes were sad.. there may be different staff in the season but I was not impressed at all. Toilets not clean. Altogether disappointing.
