“Exceptional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

I'm now keeping a promise that I made some time ago. I've had a bad conscience all that time for not reviewing this restaurant that we walked past every day on our holiday but only visited on the last night. The food was exceptional and how often is it that a fish platter can actually fill you up? Mum Hilary and her daughter Rebecca were welcoming hosts and they were justifiably proud of Tasos and the cooking skills of his family from Kalymnos. Whilst I am sure things can happen in the mean time, I am relieved to see a recent post that fully endorses my feelings but in no way lessens my guilt!

“Brasosca or Tasos the Kalymnion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

We have just returned from a very relaxing holiday to Mastichari where we visited Bex and Tasos at their very friendly and welcoming restaurant.

This is the only place that we have found that serves stuffed peppers that are filled with meat and rice. We've been looking for three years now only to be told that its usually served as a vegetarian dish. The menu offers a superb range of Greek food that begs to be sampled.

We tried all of the starters (over several visits) and asked for them to be served as a meze that could be divided between the seven of us so we could try them. Tasos was very pleased to do this and readily described the dishes that were served. Beware if you do this! We were so full after we had eaten our beef gouvetsi, beef stifado, souvlaki chicken, stuffed peppers and moussaka that there was no way we could even attempt dessert!

If you appreciate good authentic Greek food that is served in a warm welcoming environment go and visit Tasos the Kalymnion and listen to the hilarious stories they tell, the advice on places to visit but be prepared to leave with a full tummy!

The restaurant is overlooking the harbour so you can watch the boats and ferries quietly arrive and depart to Kalymnos as you enjoy your food.

“It was beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2010

My partner and I went to this restaurant twice when we were in Kos even though we were staying in an all-inclusive resort. I had the fish platter for one, he had a lamb dish that was quite possibly the softest most tender lamb I've ever tried. It was so good he had the same thing the next time we went back. I tried the moussaka- gorgeous :) The staff were friendly, the food was a great price and the alcohol was cheap. It was an excellent meal and I'd recommend anyone holidaying in Kos should try it there!
