Knowing Zia is a tourist trap of the largest kind we were happily surprised by the prices and quality of food at Olympia 2. We had expected 50% higher prices but they were the same as any other taverna in Kos and the quality was top notch. As a bonus we had a few cats there begging for scraps (I'm a sucker for cats!) that they treated well (the tip they got reflected that as well).

If you go there sit outside and enjoy the valley view; it's food is good and the service is good even when full.

We arrived in Zia around 6pm and had a little look around, decided that the views on the roof terrace were amazing and they were able to reserve us a table to allow us to look around the village.

You will have some issues parking if you don't get there early, although Olympia 2 did have private parking if you were going to eat there.

The food was good, not the best of the week, but as you can expect they were so busy. So long as you are patient then all is well, just sit back, relax and enjoy the views.
The waiters were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble for you. Very happy with the whole experience.

Breathtaking view, so so worth the hairpin drive up into the mountains, but yet do beware it is a busy tourist route and there are a lot of 52 seater buses, just don't drive too fast and you will be fine.

The road back down in the dark was fine too. The road is very well maintained and there are luminous post markers all the way down.

We sat upstairs which had great views. The menu had a good choice, the staff were attentive but not over the top and overall the meal was good and reasonably priced. The Moussaka was excellent.

Zia it's a great place to see the sunset , the Olympia 2 rest is great , the food was amazing and the staff all smiles, we even got a free desert and some explanation about the village and the island, a tip if you are coming with a rental car come early it's very hard to find parking late
