The one waiter can speak Dutch fluently and it was also fun sharing our experiences of the Dutch nation and culture (I'm a South African expat living in Holland). The waiters were also very eager to learn my language (Afrikaans) and they even remembered some words when we came... More

Had a number of meals here (breakfasts and evening meals) and were not disappointed with any of them. Staff extremely friendly and remember your name even when you are not going into eat and are just walking past. Free Wifi and toilets were lovely and clean.

During our 1 week vacation we had dinner 2 evenings and lunch one day with our 9 person big family (3 generations). We had all sorts of food. Everything was god but especially the authentic Greek food was super. Lunch was a little expensive.. Super sea view.

Just visited Kos and went to Old River for evening meals a few times and also tried the breakfast. The food was always great and plentiful and the staff very friendly and welcoming. Great place to people watch and laze away the time on a balmy summer evening

A very family orientated Restaurant , with an excellent menu and plenty of food cooked by Mama Staff very friendly and accommodating especially for families. Lovely to sit and eat and watch the sea with boats and ships passing by. Would recommend the Old River to anyone.

The breakfast are excellent value for money. The taverna had a lovely warm atmosphere in the evenings with a very good menu. They offer... More
