We ate at Christianas relatively late in our holiday and wished we'd found it earlier. On our first visit, we tried the Meze for 2 at 20 euros, which arrived promptly, tasted delicious and was excellent value for money. It is worth walking past the noisy seafront places a few yards further to Christianas, where guests are treated to a Greek hospitality as it used to be: attentive, generous and genuine. It was also nice to sit in a proper taverna and not crowded together on a pavement, which we'd mistakenly done elsewhere on the first night of our holiday! On our second visit to Christianas, we were welcomed like friends, chose several starters instead of main courses (which we could hardly finish as portions were huge) and received an unsolicited discount on our bill! On both occasions we were offered drinks/desserts 'on the house'. It can't be long until Christianas is further up the Trip Advisor ratings, as more people experience such a great place.

We went to this restaurant on recommendation from our hotel, we were greeted like old friends and the service was great. Starting with ice cold beer, there was a large choice on the menu, I had an excellent moussaka.

When in kos town make sure you give this restaurant a visit, its on a quieter street a couple of blocks from the harbour (where you are hassled to come and sit) and the food is all home cooked.

I found good food in most of the restaurants in Kos but the Taverna Christiana was my favourite.  On recommendation, we tried this restaurant on our first night in Kos. The hospitality was warm and friendly and the food delicious.  Just off the harbour in a back street, this is a lovely restaurant and, unlike some of the pushy restaurants on the harbour, you are greeted in a genuine gentle manner. The meatballs for starters were delicious and the sole cooked in a delicate sauce. We enjoyed the night so much that we decided to return before we left the island - we were not disappointed with our second visit.

We found this taverna after walking along the sea front and deciding we wanted somewhere a little quieter and not on the main road.
We chose the Christiana Meze for 2, which included a drink each for 20 euros.(total)
We are so glad we did! The food was excellent and very filling, the staff were attentive and very friendly, so much so, that we went back again a couple of nights later.
They remembered us, and so we got a free drink with our bill - again, had the truly amazing meze and now wish that we'd found it earlier in the holiday, so that we would have visited it more often and tried other dishes from the extensive menu.
A family run taverna, away from the main strip and highly recommended.
