A great host, and a great quality menu

We spent 7 days in Kavos and found this little gem randomly while hiking in the Asprocavos area. We've then been back at least 5 more times. Dimitri, the host, has a charming character and it's delightful to have conversations with him (he's very likely to speak your language, whatever it is... read more

We ate there twice and had excellent food and service both times. Really lovely to sit outside and have an unhurried meal. We will certainly go again next time we are in the area. The owner is quite a character and watching him work his restaurant was entertainment!

We had unfortunately had a bad experience with food at our hotel and were feeling disheartened. We walked past the rose tree each evening and as we were on holiday for my birthday, we decided we'd celebrate and keep our fingers crossed for an authentic Greek meal - and we were not disappointed. The food was absolutely delicious, we went... More

For our first evening of our holiday we went to the Rose Tree taverna. It is a slightly run down looking restaurant on the outskirts of Kavos. When we took our seat the waiter / owner came over promptly and told us several times 'Welcome home.' He was very friendly and he was attentive. However, we found the utterance of... More

The food and staff were excellent. Saved our holiday to be honest. Nothing was too much trouble for Dimitry and his family. Good food, friendly service and lovely atmosphere.

Very friendly owner . Very good choice of food. Food excellent & we didn't have to wait too long for it. It was hot & obviously freshly cooked - to order. Good value for money. Very clean. Toilets were spotless - I always say if the toilets are clean, then the kitchen will be clean. Overall a very pleasant experience.... More
