We went twice at night and the expérience was terrific. We tasted Kalymnian bruschetta, which are quite of a meal for who is not starving. The greek salad was fine. The half leg of lamb roasted was incredible and deserves all your considération. Service was...spotless. The view is a great add as well, but mind your timing if you do not want to miss the sunset. Booking is not an option. We enjoyed table number 1 (for 2).More

We came to the Aegean each day for 7 days and all the food we ordered was excellent. Our waitress Themis was awsome, she took really good care of us in a friendly and professional, thoughtful manner even though we were a big group (15...people). I d definetly recommend it ! It s the second holiday in Kalymnons I come here and I couldn't feel better. Thank you, Themis !More

Dined at this restaurant twice, superb views and ambiance, good service, starter was crostini with baby octopus,excellent,main course was supposed to be leg of lamb but actually it was shoulder which was disappointing,if you put leg of lamb on the menu then that is what...you should serve! Second visit the stater was crab rolls which were excellent,the main was mackerel which was completely over cooked,a problem we had in many Greek restaurants! All in all a good restaurant,could raise their game when cooking whole fish.More

Beautiful views, friendly service, innovative cooking with a twist on traditional Greek flavours. This restaurant has the potential to be incredible. However, we ordered several seafood dishes and all of them tasted frozen. I'd suggest you check what is and isn't frozen. Such a shame...as the chef obviously has great abilities but when your main ingredient isn't up to scratch it lets the whole thing down. Prices also fairly high which I wouldn't mind if it was actually fresh. We tried to order different wines from the list only to be told they didn't have it. Our 3rd choice wine was a little disappointing. With a few small tweaks this place could definitely be a solid 5 stars, I'm being generous giving 4 as I can see the potential.More

We always head back to the Aegean and it never disappoints. We tend to have our favourites but tried steak with bernaise, which was lovely and the pork steak, and our usual favourite hummus. All as good as ever, great house wines, lovely staff and...prices are OK.More

If all you want is quick cheap Greek taverna food that fills you up and warms your soul, this probably isn’t the best place where to come looking. Eating here is an experience in itself - stepping in to this lovely establishment which has been...decorated with such care to details, finding a table, admiring the view, reading the menu, making a choice, waiting for the food, admiring the presentation, enjoying the tastes... You really have to take it step by step. While it is slightly more expensive than your usual Greek taverna, it is also the experience that you pay for. If you’re open to all of it, you’ll love it here and leave a very happy customer!More

Don't eat here if you expect traditional Greek cuisine: high-quality and fresh ingredients, prepared on the point and with reasonable prices. In contrast, the Aegean Tavern manages to serve the worst food we've eaten so far on Kalymnos while being completely overpriced. The most horrible...fried calamari I've ever eaten in my life: defrosted, not freshly fried and lukewarm rubber (14 Euros!). They arrived after 2 minutes, a handful of them, served with curry pearl barley (?!) and pomegranate seeds. Absolute horror.More

We had one of our best meals EVER this evening at Aegean - world class and Michelin quality on one of the most authentic Greek Islands.

Yes there’s lots as my friend is GF. She gave the staff her request and was shown lots of options on the menu. All the grilled meats, fish and veggies and salads. We went back twice.
