Lovely Family owned tavern offering Greek and Turkish food. We really loved this place. Ask have a wander around the kitchen and see them freshly preparing the food! Also some nights entertainment!

The food was good and we enjoyed both hummus and traditional Greek food as spicy cheese salad, zuccini balls and greek salad. I give a four for the food and one extra star for the excellent people who worked there. They even feed the small cats who was running around :)

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.
