An evening at a well-known Greek restaurant.

Date(s) - Wed 1st Feb, 2017
7:30 pm


Founded in 1966, Kalamaras is London’s longest established Greek restaurant. Barely 1 minute’s walk from Bayswater tube station, this hidden gem is tucked away down a side mews you wouldn’t know existed unless you’d been there. It was made famous by The Beatles, Peter Sellers, Telly Savalas, Faye Dunaway, Dusty Springfield and Mick Jagger to name but a few.

Every Wednesday there is live Greek music with Tony and Yiola on vocals and bouzouki. Your organiser has been there several times as this is her favourite taverna and can assure you that the music and food are typically Greek but the ambiance is upmarket London. The taverna prides itself on healthy Greek and Mediterranean food. There is a choice of menu – either meat or fish as follows:
