The Cosy specialises in traditional homecooked English food and traditional local Greek dishes, all freshly cooked from local produce. The Cosy is known for it's quality food and value for money. Steak pie, meze or just a cocktail, relax at the Cosy

English Grub

Traditional English food, even Sunday roasts. Best cottage pie I have ever had. All English staff. Family owned and run. Service is a bit hit and miss but you can see how busy they are and the reason why. Best to book in.

Really good food, excellent quality, definitely recommend Cosy Corner. Yes, it's mostly British/American food but why not! Gets busy later in the evening so good to book. Can also get very hot if you're sat inside. Worth trying...

Went for breakfast which was perfectly decent and value for money. Only issue was the toilets. As you walk in, a swarm of ravenous mosquitoes awaken from their slumber and feast upon your exposed bodily regions. Surely a dose of fly spray or mozzy killer would make for a much more pleasant experience?

Given all the great reviews and its self proclaimed no. 1 trip advisor rating, we had high hopes for our evening meal. I'm not saying it was bad, I just think there are more authentic options available. Service was friendly, if a little slow and the food was so so - I had the stifado, which was tasty but a... More
