Had 4 meals here during our 2 weeks holiday( different meal every time) and everything was lovely. Charlie does a great job taking orders AND cooking the food. Very obliging staff. Can recommend the calzone but hope that someone will help you eat it because it's enormous. The daily specials are worth looking at because different every day and very... More

The food he serves is all home made & tastes fantastic. It has a great atmosphere, you can spend many hours sitting enjoying the food & drink. Charlie was... More

This is our 9th trip to Kos and we discovered La Strega on our first visit. The food gets better and better and the service, from Charlie and his lovely wife Avelina, is excellent as always. If you are unsure what to choose from the extensive menu, listen to Charlie's recommendations - I had pork stifado on his advice and... More

A lovely restaurant that offers a wide range of food at excellent prices. Would recommend the pizzas especially the calzone. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

Excellent food for cheap money and the staff is very friendly. Food came fast. Came back here every day! It's a bit of a walk (about 7 minutes) from the beach, but this is a dime in Kos that needs to be visited. The atmosphere at night is even more beautiful. Suitable for every occasion.

We visited this restaurant last night and would definitely recommend it. Food and service were both excellent. Portion sizes are large and we were able to meet the food whims of two very different children easily. Price was very fair; we had two of the set Greek menus. Pizza had by one of the children looked very nice two. We... More

The owner and his wife at La Strega are very nice people making you feel at home in their restaurant. We were craving pasta so ordered the spaghetti Strega, one pan cooked and one done in the oven. Both dishes were delicious. Prices are reasonable and our meal with one soft drink and a carafe of retsina came to €24.

Thank Chris S
