We were wandering around Kos town when we suddenly came to the top of the hill by the church and found the restaurant for lunch. Cash only and very quiet. We hummed and arred about going somewhere else but decided to give it a try. It was a real family taverna and the food was amazing ( especially the mousakka).... More

Have always had lovely meals at Aleexandros in previous years. Very very busy both evenings we ate there, which is usual. I suspect there were staff shortages as not only was service rather slow, but on both evenings, there was a meal really undercooked. The first evening a mixed souvlaki where the lamb and pork were red, and the next... More

Stumbled across this lovely family taverna whilst exploring Kos town, located next to the church but slightly off the main route. It serves traditional Greek food at very reasonable prices and I seriously doubly you will get better value for money for lovely fresh food, tried to visit on an evening but the place was full.

It was very busy and although in the centre of Kos near the church the prices were very good. There were large groups as well as families with young children. A very large choice of dishes on the menu and all cooked fresh. It was so typically charming old family Greek style. Service was slow but at times entertaining as... More

We liked this place the most of all Kos town restaurants - we've been there four times during our one week holiday. Taverna staff is very friendly, always keeps you smiling. Food is very delicious - we have tried everything from pasta to grilled meat - everything was nice and what is important - prices are really good. Taverna is... More

The restaurant is hidden behind the Church in the old part of town but worth a visit. The menu is varied and I was happy with the food I had, nothing special but I would return if Im in the area. One good point was the beer "alexander" €1.50 a bottle and although the waiter called it a black beer,... More
