The Ballad of Bill & Salome is in Kambos (also known as Votsalakia). This is a peaceful and tranquil resort on the south-west of Samos that stretches along a 2km beach.

You can find us between the Hermes Rent-a-Car office and the Rhenia Tours office on the main road. We're also next door to the postal agency in Kambos - it's easy to find the blue and yellow sign.

Just to make it even easier, we're on both sides of the road so you can't miss us! We're open all day from early to late during the main holiday season of April to October.

We have plenty of seating so you will always be able to find a table and, as we're on both sides of the road, you can choose which side you'd like to sit... close to the beach or closer to the beach! We also have a 'lounge' area where you can sit and relax with a drink and a snack and just enjoy the day.

Sun, sea, sand and… snacks

During the day you can relax on the beach on one of our sunbeds. There's a small charge to use these (€5 for two, including umbrella) as we have to pay a license to use our little bit of the beach. We also provide a full service from our breakfast and beach bar menu so if it's too nice to move from the sunshine, you don't have to.

The beach is mainly sandy and the sea is very good for swimming... it's safe and ideal for anyone, from children, less confident swimmers to Olympic medallists! Best of all, you're never far from a cold drink or delicious snack at The Ballad.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner… or supper!

We know that everyone likes to enjoy a meal when they want to and without having to rush. That's why we're open from early to late every day during the holiday season (April to October). We don't have any specific times because we never know when we'll be closing!

We're usually open from around 10am (sometimes earlier) so you can enjoy breakfast with us… you're on holiday so there's no need to get up early! We have a breakfast menu available so you can enjoy what you like from cereals to something cooked. We have a "snacks and more" menu throughout the day so you can drop by anytime to enjoy some refreshment. Our full menu is available from late afternoon/early evening as the dishes for the day are prepared during the afternoon.

We usually close when the last of our guests leaves… and not before. There's no rush to finish your meal, so you can relax and enjoy the food, the company (we hope!) and the atmosphere of Kambos (Votsalakia) at night. Whatever time you join us, we look forward to seeing you and hope that you enjoy your stay and come back again and again.


What's on the menu?

The simple answer is a lot! Not every dish is available every day but we'll always have plenty to choose from and if you're not sure what something is, Bill is very happy to explain… he is known as the Talking Menu!
