“Bread not acceptable and waiter lied about stifido”
Reviewed July 30, 2011

Lovely location but too smokey, us Brits don't like smoke while we are eating. Bread at start very small and not very nice. Chicken on a spit just a chicken leg and the stifido had raw onions in it.very disappointing.

“Kosmas, good authentic greek food”
Reviewed June 28, 2011

We know this place for 24 years. But visited the last 10 or 12 years. Very good meat, much authentic kreten food. Good service. The place has had a make-over and this looks very nice. The owner is a typical character, bit crazy but he knows what he is doing. And he has a heart of gold. Our meals were always very wel over there.

“Authentic Cretan cooking at its best, a lively atmosphere & a very special host.”
Reviewed October 30, 2009

Kosmas took over this family restaurent from his uncle a few years ago & quickly turned it into the best place for authentic Cretan food in the area, he is quite a character & dashes around the place with a unique mixture of humour, perfectionism & Olympiakos mania (if you happen to be there on a night when they win a match you'll see what we mean).
Kosmas also loves Thai food & has been there to study their cooking, so you'll find a few spicy Thai dishes creeping in among the Cretan specialities. But you should start your meal with his Saganaki ... it's spectacular !
Watch out for his nightly specials, they're usually so popular that you either have to get in early or order one the night before.
Taverna Kosmas is situated on the pedestrianised Taverna Street which is always a great place from which to watch the magical world of Galini. Like many of Galini's visitors Kosma's customers come back year after year.
