Enjoyed sitting on the patio area at the rear of Kosmas and, despite being largely surrounded but not enclosed by buildings, saw an owl fly over during the meal.

Things didn't start as planned. Some technical communications issues between waiter and kitchen and the subsequent non-appearance of our garlic bread left us sat nursing drinks for some time.

Once the waiter realised what had happened he rectified the situation quickly but the garlic bread didn't arrive until after our main course. He had also let us order the local staka with my wife's pork steaks but was considerate enough to advise us that he would put it separately on the plate and not cover the meat as it's not to everybody's taste.

The food was plentiful and the Moussaka and Pork was good. The staka was ok - we ate most of it but I wouldn't be tempted to pay extra for it.

Then came the usual complimentary dessert and Raki and, despite the fact that we'd claimed to be too full to manage one dessert between us, a second, different dessert arrived soon afterwards. Both very nice.

We went her 2 times when we stayed in Kato Stalos and both times it was very good. The first time we asked for a vegetable dish that they did not have on the menu and was told that if we came back another day they would cook it for us. And they did when we came back 3 days later.
The Rabbit and lamb dish was very good as well as the fried vegetables.
Also the service was perfect.

Friendly owners & waiters, the portions are quite big for solo diners. Taverna was not very busy in late September as the season was drawing to an end. Most diners were tourists of all nationalities, I didn't see any locals.

We went to all the top rated restaurants in Kato Stalos and enjoyed Kosmas the most. They have a beautiful courtyard garden, full of sunflowers and fresh herbs. The smell is fantastic! The staff are extremely helpful, giving advice on what to order when needed. The food itself tasted fresh and delicious. This is the only restaurant that we went to more than once. We also recommend a pre-dinner drink in Aminas Beach Bar to start off the evening - it's a short walk away.
