It only looks nice but the food is a joke. The mousaka was definitely not fresh from the same day and was reheated several times before. Same for the vegetable side dish that was definitely some leftovers from something else. the "local tomato salad" was...More

This restaurant is a must if you like fish as their fish is fresh everyday. It was very busy when we arrived but the waitress soon found us a table. Great service from the staff.

The restaurant is at the top of the steps and when sitting outside you get the view down the steps to the harbour. It's very picturesque.

The Fish House Taverna is probably one of the most photographed restaurants on the island of Kos! Literally steps away from the main Harbour. Sit and enjoy the views and watch the hustle and bustle or relax in the quieter garden area at the back (which can be a real sun trap on a windy day).Fresh fish and Seafood is of course on the menu, but so much more as well. A large selection of traditional Greek dishes, (lamb kleftiko, moussaka, mixed souvlaki), dips, salads, succulent steaks, pizza and ... AND! .... (children portions also available).A traditional Greek Taverna with excellent service and a great Greek atmosphere!
