That might sound like quite a claim. However, I've been holidaying in Greece for 28 years and have never eaten a steak so good. Actually, it was my mum who ordered the steak - she very kindly let me taste it! I had the sea bream, which was also superb - beautifully fresh, grilled, needed no embellishment. Add in impeccable...

This has to be the best place to eat in Lambi! Amanda, Tommy and Laz do everything to make you welcome. People come back time and time again! My daughter and I eat there every evening during our stay in Kos, even if my daughter wants something that's not on the menu, they will always accommodate us,!

We had two meals at Sunset. We could not believe the first one was so good so we went back and guess what, it was even better. The Australian owner is very proud of his restaurant and the quality of food and with good reason. The steaks are cooked to perfection (you see the meat before it is cooked) and... More

Wide choice of food including fresh fish and mouth watering desserts if you can manage them!Excellent friendly service. Shaded outdoor setting with garden feel, grapevines overhead and the... More

Went here as recommended by other guests in our hotel - what great food! We had tzatziki, Greek salad and garlic bread to start followed by kleftiko and a 500g T-Bone steak which was cooked to perfection. So tasty, would definitely go back. We went quite early, about 6pm so it was really quiet but that meant we had the... More

My husband, our daughter and I first visited this restaurant on our first day in Kos as it was his 40th birthday and having seen other trip advisor member reviews decided it seemed worth visiting. We were met by Tommy and Lazourous who were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Lazourous loved our 7 year old daughter and had her in fits... More

If you want a wonderful meal, in a fantastic atmosphere, with great service, go to the Sunset Taverna in Lambi. You will be warmly welcomed by Tommy, Amanda and Lazourous. The food is great, good value for money and there is a wide choice of Greek and English meals.. The steaks, apple pie, and chicken al la creme are lovely.... More
