We have been to Kefalos 4 times, and I would say that this is one of the best tavernas in Kefalos or Kamari. Good selection on menu. Beautiful traditional Greek food - e.g. both the Stifado and Moussaka have amazing flavours. Good prices, quick service, friendly staff. Can't fault it.

Our party of 4 ate at Rainbows twice during our stay in Kefalos. The first visit can be described as Excellent and the second as Very Good. The portions are very large and some of the dishes were excellent, including the liver & onions, the kokkinisto, and the soudzoukalia. There was a good selection of starters and we received a...

The staff were friendly however service was very slow and there was only us and on either couple in the restaurant at the time - it took 40 minutes just to get garlic bread! Main meals weren't good - food was cold and pretty bland. Would avoid this place as there are many other nice places to eat.

The portions were HUGE and although the setting is lovely, the food was OK, though nothing special. It is nice, but there are others whose food is a bit more tasty I think.

I have not yet returned home from our holiday in Kefalos, Kos and I fully intend on going there again before we return home. The Stiffado is beautiful and trust me I've tried a few. My teenage daughters who can on occasion be quite picky about meals have requested that we return there again. The prices here are cheaper than... More

We had a 10 night stay in Kefalos and ate lunch or dinner in around 14 places. To be honest there isn't a great deal to separate any of them but this one stood out because of the size of the portions and the quality of the food. It was the only place we ate in twice and was the... More
