Our most favorite restaurant in Kos

I never would have imagined how personnel can be a crucial part of a restaurant until I came here. They are so friendly and helpful! Other than that, food was great, in line with other restaurants in town, beach service also very good. Add a nice view (nothing special, but nice) and you have a... read more

It was such a wonderful atmosphere. Every waiter were so talkative and kindhearted! And that really lead to good entertainment in the evening, as well as during day-time. We had our nightcaps there almost every night for about two weeks, in addition to lots of meals at the resturant. The food was really nice too, and if you like salads... More

Simply a fantastic family run business at Lampi beach, overlooking the water. This place is a must visit if in the neighbourhood. Our waiter was 1st class, very witty and not just with us, with everyone that was in the place. The food was fantastic, but again that's not a surprise when you dine at a local place. We decided...

Good food and plenty of variety if you don't like greek dishes. Try the stuffed courgette flowers - really good and served with a really garlicky skordalia. Good service too. You might be lucky enough to catch a beautiful red moon rising up too so take your camera.

Just returned from a weeks holiday on Kos. I have enjoyed many meals on the Old River, and this time the standard is high as earlier. I'll recommend the greek dishes and the fantastic staff.

We are here a couple of times during our stay at the Alice Springs, breakfast and an evening meal. Service is pretty good and the staff are really friendly and remember you even when walking past days later. Our evening meal was good and you get plenty for the money, breakfast was better at the Alice Springs though but would... More
