We have been on Lesvos for four Times. First we stayed in Molyvos - the next two Years in Anaxos and this Year in Petra. The first two Years, our Favorite was "Hippocampus Beach Bar" in Anaxos. But last Year it was closed. The owners, Dimitris and Katherina, told us about "Coco Cafe". So we visited it with our "old greek friends" and found new friends in Jota and Kostas (of "Coco"). Both are really friendly people, who cares a lot of their Customers and also about the Beach (cleaning and so on). The Diner Card is full of tasty greek Specialities, but you can also find Pizza and Burgers (handmade, of course). We have tested nearly every meal from this Card and everything is fantastic. The prices are fair and the athmospere on this part of the Beach is the best in Petra.
Jota and Kostas helped us by some little and some big Problems and like to have a small talk with their guests - if it is not too busy ...
"Coco Cafe" - our Nr. 1 in Petra!

I’ve been fortunate to be able to do a lot of travelling in the last two decades, and to have eaten in some world class establishments. Still, if you were to ask me where in the world I’d most like to spend a couple of hours over lunch on a bright June day with my wife and soulmate, it would be Coco’s in Petra.

Why? Because of the sense of peace; because of the mountain backdrop; because of the stunning views across the bay to the church on the rock; because of the location, to one end of the bay, at a calming distance from the relative throng of ‘the main strip’; because of the fresh, traditional Greek fare; because of the generosity and spirit of our hosts, ‘Penny’ and Costas; and because afterwards I can take my frappe, stroll across to the beach and enjoy one of the nicest spots to sit and stare on an Island with plenty of competition for that accolade. Dinner's good too.

There’s a recent, comprehensively damning review, from TaniaS850. While no service business in the world can please all of the people all of the time, and I’m sure that Cocos (or Lesvos, for that matter) wouldn’t be for everyone, I simply don’t recognise any of the criticisms in that review.

Although we rarely stay in Petra itself, we’ve chosen to go out of our way to visit Coco’s many times over several years, and we very often see familiar faces. My own experience is that you’d really have to make an effort if you wanted to have an unpleasant time there. I’m looking forward to our next visit.

Can not understand the review about the service or food or beach. Many people return year after year and would be happy to recommend Coco Cafe to anyone. We have just returned and had a wonderful time. The beach is clean and the water is so clear in fact the best in the area. Penny and Costa are friendly and their food both during the day and in the evening is an absolute joy.
