If you want to try or drink raki with tasty appetizers you should really visit Serif. All the foods are the best and prices are cheaper than the other all places. And you may see best hospitality and welcoming in Serif..

My husband and I, both of whom come from a Greek/Mediterranean background went to Serif twice during our stay in Kos--and if you are looking for authenticity--come here! We had a great lunch, with wonderful stuffed vegetables, fantastic eggplant (imam biladi), excellent bread, and a nice platter of mixed grilled meat--the donner kebab was especially good. The owners are absolutely... More

Lovely Family owned tavern offering Greek and Turkish food. We really loved this place. Ask have a wander around the kitchen and see them freshly preparing the food! Also some nights entertainment!

The food was good and we enjoyed both hummus and traditional Greek food as spicy cheese salad, zuccini balls and greek salad. I give a four for the food and one extra star for the excellent people who worked there. They even feed the small cats who was running around :)

We went twice as the Taverna was so good. The best meal out I have EVER had and my boyfriend was besotted with the food too. We were given a tour of the kitchen to see the many foods which made it easier to pick what was best for us. The host is genuinely friendly and remembered us and our... More

We just wanted to do a note on here to say that Serif Taverna was easily the best meal that we had whilst on the island of Kos. The 4 of us shared the Mixed Grill for 2 and the Mixed Kebab for 2 and the food was absolutely superb. The drinks were all very, very nice too. Ali and... More
