We were immediately welcomed by Romos the owner of the bar who invited us to a Greek night that evening and reserved us the table of our choice. We were... More

Food is exceptionally good. Always fresh and full of flavour. Swordfish is lovely, as is the Chicken souvlaki. All staff friendly and polite. Cant wait to return in september.

We ate here a couple of times and it was excellent but the highlight was chatting with Romos the owner who was an absolute star - he makes a mean cocktail and is superb company. If we return to Kos we will certainly visit Romos at the Santa Barbara.

Food was of a very poor quality, chicken slovaki looked like the kebabs you get out of Iceland!! Waiters not very friendly, in fact they made us feel very uncomfortable, it was quite a relief to leave there!!!!! probably one of our worst experiences in a taverna ever!!!
