The food is on the pricier side but it's excellent. I tend to make meals out of smaller plates. Also, save room for cookies from the in-house bakery!

A taverna to me means a relaxed atmosphere, good food and reasonable prices. I, nor my companions found these components at this restaurant. The atmosphere was acoustically horrible, the food so-so and the prices disportionate to the previously mentioned factors. As no stranger to fine dining I found our experience less than desirable.

First visit to Kipos booked on the recommendation of our son-in-law as a suitable venue to celebrate my wife's birthday. Good people skills from staff with eye contact and a smile as we entered and went to our table. Restaurant and bar not busy but tables arranged such that the atmosphere was sociable. Attentive waiter who took us through the... More

Kipos is a great find for lovers of Greek food. The menu does have some to the old standards found in most Greek restaurants, but also has much more traditional family recipes. Their bread is baked in the restaurant and is fresh, warm with a chewy crust. Kalamaria was tender and only slightly breaded bringing the full taste out. If... More

This was my second visit here, I really like the Mediterranean flair here, great atmosphere, wood burning oven, and authentic Greek fare. The resto is part of a series of excellent restos in the RDU area, but this place was fun and tasty. The appetizers/small plates are really superb, and the entrees good, but go for the wood grilled items.... More

Our family was in town to see UNC on homecoming weekend, and found that there was limited availability on a Friday night. We did find a comfortable table for 3 at Kipos, and really went with limited expectations...WOW, were we pleased with the outcome. Our server, Mike made the evening a pleasure. His service was so friendly, with excellent recommendations... More
