In a quiet area of Sifnos — in Kato Petali — you will find "To Kelari", a tavern that has been serving traditional Greek and local Sifnian cuisine since 1988, in a warm and family environment. This family-run tavern is known for serving fresh meat for the past three decades. Come and taste hearty meals, delicious local recipes, appetizers and meat cooked on the grill or in our traditional oven.
In the tavern, you can enjoy its museum-like traditional interior with various pottery items and olive-oil processing machines that were used up to the year 1982. Take a trip back in time and enjoy delicious food on our terrace under the vine-covered pergolas.
The family of Tassos and Maria run this non pretentious, family restaurant, serving typical sifnean plates, most of which are prepared with biological ingredients of the family farm. In a peaceful rural setting you eat plates such as revythokeftedes, melitzanosalata, kaparosalata, mousaka and plenty of other known greek recipies. Do not miss the pork and especially the lamb chops of Tassos, the best in the islandDimitrisTheHague
Four of us took the very short walk from Apollonia across the valley, the walk is along beautiful paved paths that evoke a sense of Sifnos a few hundred years ago. We arrived at Kato Petali by the church and village square and 50 m further on sits this Taverna, it has some very old agricultural machinery that is on display, the food is excellent as was the service. Although this is slightly away from the usual tourist areas you really should make the small effort to enjoy the food drink and hospitality. Highly recommended!HugoNo1
After 4 days in the island and not very excited with the food here, we finally had a big smile of satisfaction when we visited, by recommendation of a local, Kellari restaurant. The food was excellent!! Everything we had was great, the staff is very friendly and nice, the place is really cool. A terrace with view of Apollonia and Artemonas. Lamp chops were maybe the best I ever had, highly recommended!! It is outside of Apollonia, about 1km, and most definitely worth to visitIoannis S
All the dishes are fresh and well made. I hear from locals that the owner uses home grown meat and vegetables. The appetizers were all great. The pork chops were the best I've tasted and the imam was delicious. Soft eggplant stuffed with onions in a red sauce...just enough oil...delicious. Had a great dinner accompanied by awesome white wine from the owner's private barrel. I have been coming to this island for 15 years and I make sure to go to Kelari every year at least once.Helen S
This is one of the best restaurants in Sifnos. If you're looking for traditionnal cycladian food, this is really the place to go. Everything is fresh (all vegetables come from the garden), prepared with care and respect for the tradition. And it is a charming and quiet place, with a very friendly service. We loved it and we recommand it.582luke
