We tried sea food risotto (medium cooked), boiled natural mussels in garlic sauce, avocado salad (Parmesan and walnut), red house wine. (They were very nice to provide us ice to cool our wine.) They served us mixed fruit at the end of dinner. Here is basically a nice Italian slow food restaurant and all very delicious. We enjoyed a lot.

I have been to Dona Rosa on three occasions and I had wonderful meals and service every time. Unique cuisine and excellent service next to the sea and mountains.

Delightful setting, on the water. Excellent fish and sea-food, perfect bread. Good wines and attentive, friendly service. Please note the spelling of the restaurant it is Dona not Donna....

Together with Kosmos, Avlakia has two excellent restaurants. Dona Rosa has some Italian influences i think. But for the most part both restaurants serve excellent fresh food. A good starting point is the menu, which is written down on a chalkboard on the wall. Maybe 15-20 dishes to choose from. I have visited Dona Rosa 3 times now and most... More

This tavern, with fresh food on a daily menu, is set on the waterfront of the beautiful small village of Avlakia. The food was very good, and the service was very charming and friendly. You would not be disappointed with your visit at Dona Rosa!

A very nice style of combining caribbean & greek foods. All the foods are delicious and environment is so quite,cosy with nice jazz music. We have been to this restaurant three times and what ever we tried we liked them all. You should definitely go if you visit Samos. Owners, Rosa and Aris are perfect hosts.

Thank Ugur S
