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 :)

We were given a tour of the kitchen to see the many foods which made it easier to pick what was best for us. The host is genuinely friendly and remembered us and our... More

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... 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.
