Whatever you are going to eat is prepared with a solid experience and expertise, in menu nothing is there just to make it look like rich menu, whatever is available is selected carefully by the owner of the place..

This is a very traditional Greek taverna, but it's more than that, its located at the top of a hill, on the outskirts of kos, and it's clearly a family started business.
Upon arrival we asked if there was a card machine, and there wasn't.....fortunately we had enough cash, but bear this in mind, THEY DONT TAKE CARDS!!!!

Upon looking at the menus we decided on our mains, two of us had a meze, a swordfish, a mixed souvlaki and a salouma(pork with onions)..
The meze was amazing, the owner told us how it wasn't yor usual meze, it was the rarest of the Greek dishes and it proved to be amazing, absolutely delicious, from stuffed flowers to garlic beans, all amazing.

The swordfish tasted fresh and crisp without being burnt, how it should be cooked.

The mixed souvlaki had lots of meat, tender and ful of flavour.

And the salouma was amazing too, so much flavour, even much so from a dish we'd not heard of before.

Overall I would recommend coming here as the atmosphere was second to none, the staff were lovely, the service was timed, what I mean is that it was quick without the waiter snatching the plate from beneath your mouth as you eat the last bite.


It's a little walk, you may get a little lost, but it's all worth it in the end.

This taverna should be higher than this, it's not only a little gem but it's what coming to Greece is all about!!
