We rode to Kos on hired bikes from Marmari, hadn't intended to go to here, but when we parked our bikes, we noticed that one of the bikes had a puncture. They helped us out with getting someone from the bike hire firm to come & fix it, so we pooped in for a drink, but the food looked so... read more

We have been to kos several times now and have eating at this place before. During our trip this year we ate 3 times at this restaurant. The restaurant is also visited by many locals and one of our Greek friends on the Island also took us and his Family for Dinner here. We had the typical Greek small dishes,... More

Location right on the beach was very helpful. Owner offers up his bathroom for beach goers and charges nothing for use of sun beds and umbrellas. Wait staff comes out onto the beach. They speak Turkish and English, as well as greek. Food is excellent - Greek and Turkish dishes available - and is quite inexpensive. We spent a whole... More

We tried this restaurant on the first night of our girly trip to Kos simply because of it's location. Turned out to be a superb choice. Something on the menu for everyone and tasty house wine at a really good price. The staff were super friendly and also very funny. It was this humour and great range of food that... More

This great restaurant enticed us to stay on their beach with free sunbeds. There is a beach side waiter but also, just over the road is their superb restaurant, ideal for a quick beer or a snack. The staff are very helpful and pleasant.

Really great food and service. The hospitality of the owner and his staff makes you wanna return. Our kids loved the restaurant where they really felt at home. As a bonus Old River makes the absolutely most delicious desserts.

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 perfect lunch spot. I would... 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
