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.

Excellent restaurant in the middle of the Aegean Sea. You have to try it. Ege denizinin ortasindaki iki yaka kulturunun kaynastigi bu lokantaya ugramadan gecmeyin.
