I was recommended this lovely family run restaurant by the guest relations adviser at our hotel as somewhere nice to celebrate a special birthday and it didn’t disappoint. We didn’t book a table but as soon as we arrived we received a very warm welcome...and shown to a table straight away. The service we received was efficient but warm and friendly throughout. The food was delicious, authentic home cooked Greek food and very reasonably priced. When my husband mentioned it was my birthday I was brought a gorgeous chocolate cake with a candle to blow out and all the staff sang happy birthday to me, which made the evening very special. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal there and would highly recommend a visit if you are staying in or near Kos town.More

The mixed grill here is one of the best we’ve ever had. The staff are so welcoming and every night it is full of locals and repeat visitors. We went back twice and would still go again

if the locals eat here, its usually a pretty good sign.... and the place was packed on a Saturday lunchtime mostly with locals but with a few tourists too. the food was fab, the service excellent and the ambience fun - the locals certainly seemed...to be enjoying a celebration of some description. would highly recommend the mixed kebab for two - really good value and we couldn't manage to eat it all either... thankfully they do doggy bags. get yourself off the main Kos restaurant trail and eat here - its worth it!More

We visited Kos town while on holiday on the island and came across this place completely by accident. The food and sevice was excellent we had a starter and the mixed kebab for two and couldn't eat everything but they popped the leftover kebab and...burger in a container so we could take it home. Very reasonable price.There seemed to be plenty of locals eating here and having a good time and i always think thats a good indication that its going to be worth a visit. If you are in Kos town its worth checking this place out its a bit away from the centre but worth the effort.More

We got the recommendation of our quad rental gut Antonis and were thrilled from the beginning on. The staff is so nice and cheerful. We ordered pita and tzatziki and some grilled veggies for starter, all came very fast and was so delicious. Our main...dishes were also perfectly and big portions. They were very attentive and funny in conversations. Prices really low for good quality food and many choices. 10/10 would recommend.More

Nice food and fresh ingredients. We had a nice dinner here in Ali restaurant. We had a Greek salad which was good and a mixed grilled meat plate (hamburger, sausages, chicken gyro, lamb meat and pork plus French friend and rice) - nice combination to...try almost everything. My wife had a pork gyros which was a bit dry but tasted fine. As an appetizer we had really tasty manti with yogurt sauce which were just great. The restaurant serve a mix of Greek and Turkish kitchen, nice combination of flavors. My suggestion is to try the appetizers which are so many and rich in flavors. The offer watermelon as dessert and the bill was good (on the average - maybe less). The restaurante was full of locals and tourists, good sign. Totally worth trying it!More
