  • Kleio is by no means a touristic trap. It is completely different from the tourist tavernas of the area. The staff are all very friendly to kids and families and treat them so well… they have even kids and baby cutleries and glasses. They even have free nappies and wipes in the toilets!

  • Once the kids have finished their food, they ran on the beach which is one step away from the tables. They played on the swings and in the sand fearlessly while we were enjoying our dinner under the shade of the trees.
