When you tell local people that you are going to Arap they'll say: you enjoy the good life! And that's exactly what we are doing ... Eat like a king at Arap! Just let the restaurant surprise you, order mezes and eat! Arap is situated in Platani, the Turkish enclave of Kos. From Kos Town the most easy thing to... More

We’ve had our best meal of our holiday in Kos at Restaurant Arap! Although at first the few restaurants located at the central crossroad of Platani seem not very different from each other, the quality of Arap’s home-made food is a big surprise! Having dinner at Restaurant Arap is perfectly combined with a visit to the Asclepeion ruins (famous for... More

Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Very popular with locals. I've been coming here since I was a boy - my family are from Kos. Order Anthus (stuffed courgette flowers), stuffed vine leaves, yohurtlu. Best meat dishes are Suzuk (small kofte pieces) and the best veal chop I've ever had. It's ridiculously cheap as well. You can't go wrong.

well I go to this restaurant every year I cant tell you enough about it. Every meal is divine. The price is not very expensive. I love the meat bourekakia. The tsopano salad and to be honest there isnt a meal that is not good. It provides free wifi.

After a week of Greek food we found this lovely Turkish restaurant near Kos Town. We were looked after from the moment we arrived and the owner offered us a mezze selection off the menu. Everything was amazing, my girlfriend and I were very happy customers.

During our entire stay in Kos, we had the best dinner in this small restaurant in Platani. A menu with a large selection of Greek and Turkish dishes, a friendly atmosphere and delicous food for a very reasonable price. Platani is a village very near to Kos Town served by the city Bus Number 3 which departs from the bus... More

We had a quick dinner here before our flight home and it was fantastic. The service was good and the mix kebab I had as a main was outstanding. It is reasonably priced and I recommended Arap to everyone at the bar back at our apartments. 10/10
