We had the Xmas menu 3 courses which was the only option and the wine pairing. Service staff were friendly but didn't serve the wine before the food. We had to ask for the wine for every course. Food was good but not ask good...as the Xmas menus had had at KOL and Monkeys. Some live music and great atmosphere in the bar, great place for a party night. Staff at the reception Natua? was a star.More

The food was amazing, we loved the 3-course menu, we can definitely recommend it. The environment is so cozy for the weather outside, we felt like home, it is a great place to spend a special occasion

I have been to Kef restaurant countless times. The waiters are always so nice and welcoming. The lobster soup and chicken salad are my favourite! Would definitely recommend! They also have great cocktails!

Great good with amazing flavour and good size meals. We really enjoyed eating breakfast, lunch and dinner here whilst we stayed at the hotel.

Instead of lobster, we were served with langoustines. The waiter, who actually appeared once after 90 minutes of waiting, admitted that they cooked what they had and it happened so they didn’t have lobster so we were given langoustines. He was so honest to mention...that if he had been the owner of the restaurant he would never have served such a lousy food because all of his customers would be lost for ever. After such a candid words of him I decided not to continue our discussion as it was just pointless. The waiter suggested a discount of 30% for the cheated dish. I strongly recommend avoiding this place with a wide berth.More

The vegetarian main course I took (grilled zucchini) was one of the best veggie dishes I’ve ever had in a restaurant! The service is also super friendly!

I've eaten many times now at Kef restaurant and the menu is great. It's simple but offers a variety of good food. Really loved the tacos, the beef tenderloin and salad also.

I went alone and without a reservation. They graciously and quickly seated me. Friendly, quite fancy, quick with the order and delivery, and delicious. The check took 30 minutes to arrive and only after several prompts; however, they were very busy. I would eat here...again, but I might make reservations.More

This was a nice option we chose near the airport where we were staying before an early flight. We found the service to be good and there is happy hour from 3-6pm I believe. The menu is limited and they were out of some things....So, we both got burgers, but thought they were very good. Also, avoid the young woman with dark hair at the front desk as the restaurant is in a hotel and we were trying to ask her where the restaurant was and she ignored us for awhile with no eye contact or “I’ll be with you in just a minute”, so we just stood there until she decided to help.More

Incredibly rude waiter. We were waiting for our main dish for very long time. After we complained, the waiter did not see a problem and told us to wait longer. He was rude and arrogant.

We went to the restaurant based on the 4,5* rating, but it was not more than average. The music was so loud we could hardly have a conversation. The food could have been a lot better. The lamb is supposed to be pink in the...middle, but was way overcooked and chewy. The risotto wasn’t risotto at all, just an ordinary rice mixed with curry. Definitely not worth the money.More

We were a group of 9 people with a reservation, and they had a table set up for us. It was in the conservatory room, and quite loud, so we requested a quieter table. We were taken to another room, which was quieter, and enjoyed...perfectly prepared food and fast, friendly service. Highly recommend this beautiful place.More

The food is good. The service between starter and main is super fast, faster than we expected. The food however was worth it, the portions are huge and very flavoursome. Service is always with a smile and the drinks variety is widely selected, local and...international favourites available, try the local beer, it’s incredible!! The restaurant itself is pretty, the interior well balanced with the glass exposing the natural beauty outside.More
