This is the third time I've stopped in Kos over the last 10 years, and each time we end up eating at the Old River in Lambi. It is situated on the walk into Kos Town along the beach from Lambi. The staff are really friendly and the food is delicious (the Gyros come highly recommended !!). As an added... More

We passed on the free sun beds but did use this restaurant for lunch several times. Greek salad was perfect on a really hot day, washed down by a bottle of Mythos. A small walk past the other, music playing tavernas on the beach and well worth the walk. Free sun beds a bonus if you want one. Clean toilets,... More

We found this taverna along the sea front one evening, they were so very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious and the service excellent. It was a great place to watch the world go by and see the sun go down. We returned several times and were always greeted warmly. Highly recommend.

Old River taverna was the first spot we encountered when getting to the beach in Lambi. The smiling staff, speaking fluently in several languages, kindly invited us to spend a day at their beach restaurant. The best service, comfortable sun beds, and a charming Serbian waiter Dragan made us decide to return to Old River every time we were in... More

We have been to Old River Beach 2 days. The boss, Yusuf Bey, and other staff of Old River were so kind to us. They are helpful and hospital. I strongly advise their spaghetti carbonara.
