Visited for lunch when strolling through Kos one afternoon. Food is basic but enjoyable and worth the money. We both had pizza and had no complaints. Restaurant is a lovely little spot to sit in and watch tourists pass by.

Ate here on our first night in kos and was really disappointed. Myself and my daughter had the lamb kleftiko which was nearly all fat. My hubby and son in law had the chicken that was rubbery. Staff were friendly but poor food I’m afraid.
