Charming Olga is the warm and considerating owner of this very good greek restaurant. Assisted by her brother in the restaurant and with her mother and father operating at the cuisine, she always gives us an unforgetable dinner.
We start coming there the first time we visited Kissamos 6 years ago, and we always return to Aretousa for the first and last night dinner when ever being in Kissamos!

We discovered Aretousa tavern by chance, few days after out arrival in Kissamos.
The first experience was enough to bring us there for the rest of our staying. It was (and actually will be for another evening) the best Greek cuisine we enjoyed during our vacations in this beautiful country.Delicate or strong tastes, never boring, always accompanied by the detailed descriptions and recommendations of Olga.
It is a family business, with Mme Aretousa (Olga's mother) being the "chef" and the others that make you feel at home. The tavern is well positioned on the sea side (the second on the western side of the tavernas on the sea side) and the service is quick.
We tried to cover as much as possible of the menu, even if we came back to some dishes, like Apaki (smoked grilled pork with some tsatsiki in the middle), giant beans, the saganaki mussels, the traditional and exceptional rabbit and... well, I cannot mention all, you should try it yourself.
At the end, a little bottle of raki (local strong drink, wow...) and a sweet is offered.
All in all, I highly recommend Aretousa and its crew - a delicious and friendly experience.

My girlfriend and me spent a beautiful holiday for a couple of weeks this summer in Kissamos.
We found Tavern Aretousa our favorite place to dine. Aretousa is a family run restaurant, with Olga and her brothers taking care of table service and mummy and daddy in the kitchen. During our stay in Kissamos we tryed almost everything in the menu and everithing to our satisfaction.
We thank the kindes of the whole family, they make feel us like home.
