This was the worst place we ate in Kos. The service seemed rushed like they were too busy but the main thing is the food just wasn't very good. It is right in the heart of the tourist old town so maybe they just don't have to try very hard. They did not seem overly concern that we left most... More

What a great restaurant. We had a wonderful long relaxing lunch here on a day trip from Bodrum.The service was friendly & efficient. We loved the complimentary fresh bread & olives & our main meals were tasty. Although we were the only customers there we weren't made to feel rushed. We sat outside to people watch but inside the restaurant... More

Was here for my birthday dinner. It was excellent done by the staff. Even flowers were provided at our table. Felt me treated as a king. Very delicious food. When I will be back in Kos next time for sure I will go for a dinner in this cozy Greek taverna.

We went to this restaurant after suggestion from tourist office. The ambient is small and garden is very welcoming. The service was in our case fast and friendly. The free bread, olives and patinada surprised us very positively. This was delicious. I decided to eat potato which was already prepared and can be seen in the lobby of the restaurant.... More

We visited this restaurant as a family of 5 on the recommendation of our hotel. I acknowledge that there are lots of good reviews regarding this restaurant, so maybe they were just having a bad night. We arrived at 8.55 and were shown to our table in the outside part at the back. At 9.20 I asked the waiter if... More

The free appetizers of tapinade, olives and bread were very good. We tried the tzatziki, moussaka and chicken with tomatoes. Excellent and tasty food! Friendly and helpful waiter. Will definitely visit this place again :-)

Nice outside garden. Service was very slow, and then the waiter said that they made a mistake in the kitchen. Took more than 1 hour after ordering to get our meal. Chicken souvlaki was okay. Grilled shrimp was dry and tasteless. Very smokey. As North Americans , the trend has been to eliminate smoking in restaurants, so we are not... More

Great value for the food, lovely atmosphere especially when dark! It's great, the chicken dish with tomato sauce is to die for!

In the middle of Kos Town in the middle of shops but it has quite beautiful garden that you can seat and enjoy dinner. They got planty of vegeterian foods that you can enjoy like every Greek tavern. It may look a little bit pricer but it would't fool you, plates / portions of starters, grill vegatables, fried stuff are... More
