Description: The interior design of Magnaura was inspired by both Mediterranean and Byzantine architecture. The name echoes to the ancient "Magnaura Palace" - one of the three biggest palaces of the era, that was used to host and entertain foreign royalty. To suit our unique atmosphere, we offer special examples of both traditional Turkish and Ottoman cuisine, combined with other international delicacies creating an inventive fusion to excite your senses.

Reviewed October 7, 2012

Loved the lighting, loads of singular glass lamps, in various colours and the wrought iron vine around the palm trees. Great staff, always attentive, great food choice.

“A Home From Home”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

The Magnaura is ideally situated right on the sea front in Bitez. It has its own private beach with cushions, sunshades and sunbeds where you can enjoy a lovely view of Kos.

The freshly cooked food is of the highest quality and cooked by a first-class chef. My wife recommends the Halumi with orange plus a sweet chilli dip. I recommend their flambee marble plate.

We have been visiting Bitez now for 2 years and this is the only restaurant that we have eaten in more than once.

We are sure if you visit the Magnaura you will receive a very warm welcome from the owner Ali (he wears really classy shirts) and his attentive staff Irsin, Ishmael, Jack and Benjamin.

We are looking forward to seeing them all again next May and September.

“Among friends”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

You find Magnaura on the boulevard of Bitez. Between the formal Golden Spoon and the supermarket of Biroh..Magnaura is a first class family-restaurant with an topchef and a great and friendly staff. I asked for lamb chanks, my girls choose chicken. In no time we had our food and it was great. Realy super.The waiters (especialy Ismaël) know what the guests want. The boss Ali Emiroglu is very friendly and - for the footballsupporters - Ali is famous in Holland, Because he knows everything about the ere-divisie and the clubs of the first division. It's great to be in Magnaura. You have the feeling being among friends..

“Wow!”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

This restaurant on first appearance seems quite dull and not so good in comparison to others on the strip, however the food is amazing. I had the most incredible cheese platter starter whilst my partners starter was also very large and incredibly tasty. The mains are equally as well made and served, all the food was fresh and exciting and the dedication to service was great, I would definitely recommend eating here.
