The best restaurant by far in Kefalos in our opinion and there is plenty of contenders. We visit the Santa Barbara every other night whilst we are on holiday as we rate it that highly. You always receive a very warm welcome from owner Romos and his staff. Camilla the darling of the cocktails and drinks and Harry your resident... More

Our favourite restaurant on Kos. A welcoming, friendly atmosphere, views to die for and beautiful food. What more could you want?? We usually try different restaurants all holiday when we're away, but we loved this one so much we went back several times. Brilliant cocktails too.

We visited the Santa Barbara restaurant whilst in Kefalos in August 2016. The food is always wonderful and really reasonably priced and the views over Kamari Bay are second to none. The addition of the cocktail menu this year, (at insanely cheep prices) meant that many an evening we had no need to venture further, as the atmosphere in the... More

Having visited Santa Barbara many times I can firmly say that this is a very good place to eat or just call in for drinks. The owner, Romos, is one of life's nice guys and will always change any item on the menu to accommodate your needs. The other staff, Camilla and Harry are very attentive and have a great... More
