The best meal that we had during our 10 day holiday in Kos!

We just wanted to do a note on here to say that Serif Taverna was easily the best meal that we had whilst on the island of Kos. The 4 of us shared the Mixed Grill for 2 and the Mixed Kebab for 2 and the food was absolutely superb. The drinks were all very, very nice too. Ali and... read more

For something a bit different when in Kos, try the Turkish-Greek restaurants in Platani, which is not hard to get to from Kos Town. At Serif, we enjoyed chicken yogurtlu and lamb adana. Service was also very good.

First we got a tour around the kitchen where he proudly showed us all the food. This really made the water in your mouth flowing. Then we asked for a Greek meze, a... More

When we were travelling on Kos, we were there. We've eaten great food, dolmados and thoose people are very kind. So, when we go to next time to Kos, I'm sure that I'll go to Sherif again.
