We found Barbas by chance 5 years ago and have visited every time we have been to Kos since. Vassilis and his staff are fantastic , the food is wonderful and we always look forward to our next visit.

Kos is much quieter this year due to last years refugee crisis, however there are no refugees to be seen now, but businesses are struggling due to the lack of tourists. We accidentally came across this little gem that can be found down the side of the yacht cafe just off the main beach. This is a family business and... More

The barbas tavern is short distance from the sea front. I had even meal a number of times and found the cooking to be good. Had Souvlaki one of my favourites and had soup which was also good.

We visited this restaurant on our first night in Kos and we enjoyed the typical cuisine. We had souvlaki dishes and greek salad - everything was fresh and tasty. And the check was totally fair with the quality and service received. It is not fancy, but really homy.

Found this place on an internet review site - small place tucked away from the buzz of the beachfront bars and restaurants. Food was delicious. Staff very welcoming and friendly.

I had dinner here a number of times and found the cooking to be very good, with excellent souvlaki and lamb and above all the fish- the whole grilled "fagri" (a type of sea bream) was wonderful, as were the garlic prawns. The house wine was very good as well, and service was friendly and attentive.

This taverna is just down the road from Esperides Apartments, Their calamari was great and never rubbery, the swordfish was lovely and the giros or donner kebab is nothing like you would get in the UK and was really tastey. To round off a meal try the Greek Yogurt with Honey and walnuts. Good service with a smile

Heading into town and passed this Taverna. So glad we stopped. Had an excellent Moussaka and my hubby had a lamb dish which was also excellent.
