Description: Meze Taverna Restaurant Fanos is dedicated to authentic Greek cuisine. Situated on the beautiful Aegean Island of Kos, Fanos was established in 2005. We created a friendly and warm homely environment for people to enjoy their dining and soon became a favorite dining hotspot. So what is the 'meze' way of dining? The closest translation would be a 'snack' or 'treat'. Rather than ordering a starter and a main course for example, Greeks prefer to order a whole lot of 'meze' dishes shared by two or more people, the idea being that rather than dine the classic starter and main course way, you get a whole variety of treats or 'meze' dishes and have a little bit (or a lot) of everything. In fact very few Greeks will actually even ask for a menu but rather trust the restaurateur to recommend some meze dishes which here at Fanos Restaurant are always prepared with the choicest ingredients and cooked to succulent perfection. So, enjoy the friendly atmosphere and let our staff guide you through a real Greek night out.Welcome to Fanos Meze Taverna Restaurant!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

A wide variety of traditional meals from all over Greece (the owner is from the north somewhere) and generally anything you might like. Regardless of preference, there will surely be something really tasty for you.

The only disadvantage is the relatively steep prices.

“The best authentic greek cuisine on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

This has to be the best greek cuisine, in traditional meze style. Janis, the owner is a fantastic, warm and welcoming chap, who knows exactly how to create the dishes on offer. The restaurant is open all year and is frequented by locals..a good indication of how great the food is. The food is very reasonably priced. It is well worth the visit.

“Fantastic greek food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

We came here for lunch on recommendation from a local and it was fantastic. The owner was really friendly and offered us a lot of advice about what to order, in the end we went for mezzedes (think that's how you spell it) which is a few plates of different foods all of it was delicious and fresh. The prices are reasonable too and it is located pretty much right next to the sea.
