“Wedding Venue”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

This restaurant was recommended by my daughter's wedding planner who took my daughter and son in law to visit the owner to discuss budgets. Like in England when you mention the W word the costs rise by at least 20% this was not the case for us. The owner suggested that a meeting take place the following day with the chef to suggest what dishes were available and our preference within the budget. We all wanted an informal meze and party atmosphere.
Our table for 20 was set at the side of the restaurant, which made it more personal, under the grapevine pergola and there were sofa and chairs for guests to chill out on whilst the wedding photos were being taken and after the meal.
The food was absolutely amazing, especially for the budget the chef had, in fact far too much and we felt very guilty of what was left!! I would like to thank all the staff for making it such a memorable time for my daughter and son in law. And the toast was provided free of charge!!!
Thank you.

“Top Of The Tree”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

If you visit KOS and you are looking to eat somewhere special this is the place for you, the food is first class, the service is excellent, you may pay a premium but this is reflected in the quality. The restaurant is sited in one of the most historic parts of KOS but is great for morning coffee, lunch, or a full evening meal, for any of these you can expect a warm welcome.

“One of the best restaurants in Kos town for food and atmosphere”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

This is one of the better restaurants in Kos town and this is reflected in its slightly higher food and wine pricesThere is an excellent menu and wine list and you can avoid the higher prices by opting for the 3 course meal of the day at 20 euros a head and ordering a carafe of house wine at 9.80 euros.We did this on our second visit to this establishment and found it very good value for money.

Its a very comfortable restaurant and very atmospheric when the surrounding Moorish and Greek buildings are lit at night.Its also adjacent to the tree of Hippocrates.Well worth a visit.

“Sorry but dirty table cloths no wine list and packet food starters”
Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

I went here under good reviews and personal recommendation , nice location quiet away from the busy harbour , pleasant welcome and staff that seem to do a good job, nice chairs to sit in and money has been spent on nice plates to eat from. But with table cloths covered in the previous guest food and a cook not chef who re heats frozen food the night at 80€ was not good for two. Along with a 3.90 € cover charge this place was poor at best , plenty of quality in kos H 2 0 or the stadium get it right, need to try. A bit harder
