Huge portions and good service

This is definitely the place to go if you are hungry as the portions are huge and the main courses served with delicious rice and veg as well as chips and salad. Also a free drink of Kalhua with the bill was appreciated.

This is a nice place to eat with great views of the bay. The staff were friendly and the food was good. I had mousaka and my girlfriend had a fish dish. Both delicious and, of course, I had my usual banana split. With cold drinks, the meal was around 25 euros.

If you are in Kefalos ( Kos ) you should go to this place. It's a family traditional Greek taverna. The hospitality of the family, delicious food and really low prices amazed us. Really honest and nice people, you won't regret. Try their moussaka and lamb, and of course the fish, everything is fresh and delicious!

We visited the Rainbow only the once. The food was very nice. I had kleftico which arrived in a paper parcel and was lovely. The thing which annoyed me was the fact that as we ate our meal, the two waitresses sat behind us on a table in the centre of the restaurant smoking and checking their mobile phones. Not... More

A lovely taverna on the beach front. The family who own it are lovely and very welcoming. It is nice and clean. The menu is very varied and there are prices to suit all budgets. Their white hosue wine is very palatable too !! A good place for couples, groups or families.

We love Rainbow. Five visits during our recent 14 day stay in Kefalos. It represents such fantastic value for money, the family are so friendly and welcome us back with hugs and kisses each year and the portions; well, they are big!! Often seems quieter than other places and I struggle to wonder why. My only thought is the rather... More
