Nice restaurant near bus station

Olympiada is really nice place to eat with tasty meals and friendly staff. We ordered a Greek salad, grilled octopus and a lamb kleftiko. Delicious! It is a shame that we did not have an opportunity to go there for dinner. Hopefully next time! :)

Our guide said, that this would be the one place to go, if You want the traditional Greek Food. So, we went there, and we love it! Nice, small (maybe ten tables?) place, with great personel. Me, myself had to eat for starters anything with the legendary garlicsauce <3 Younger male staff said, it was made by his mother. It... More

We read about the Lemon Pork, (It's only on, every other day!) we went back twice and missed it, second time they cooked it especially for me, it was worth the wait! It's a little off the beaten track, but a walk before and after dinner really helps! It was really good value in comparison to the main eateries

We recently made our 3rd visit to the Olympiada restaurant at Pavlou/Cleopatras Street Kos (near the bus station). The fact that it is often very busy with lots of local diners tells you that it is very popular and of high quality. The menu is extensive with all the traditional Greek dishes beautifully served. We were extremely satisfied and will... More

We found this restaurant while on a day to Kos and trying to avoid the typical touristy restaurants full of cliched English dishes. The menu looked authentic and though the place was empty, we took a chance. Our luck was in! A family run business with pictures on the wall of the man serving and cooking for us from 1978.... More

This is a restaurant which I remembered from my previous visit in Kos town. Finnish tour operator used it for information-events and we also had a supper there then and I ate there later, also. When I noticed it this time, I thought it is worth a new visit. I was a little disappointed about my meal, taramosalata, bread and... More
