We ate here one evening (6 adults and 2 children) the children's food came first the chicken nuggets were not cooked in the middle all the meat dishes were tasteless the pasta dishes had flavours as they had plenty of garlic in them, what we thought was going to be a nice night turned out to be very dodgy experience....

We stopped here because it looked nice and recommended by astron hotel where we stayed. Good advice. Lovely evening and not far from four roses bar where we finished a pleasant evening. The staff and food at this restaurant was excellent. Did not feel like just another tourists, they took great care of us although they were busy.

I visited here for Lunch, and its a very nice Taverna. Very Relaxing, good atmosphere, tasty food and good value. I always come here for lunch on day trips to Kos from Rhodes and always worth a visit.

I have visited here on several occasions for lunch on day trips to Kos, and it is an excellent taverna. Food is tasty and reasonably priced, and great views also to watch the world go bye.

This is easily the best bar in Kos. Unbelievably friendly and helpful staff, great location, and great food and drinks. A half litre of local wine is 3 euros; a giant beer is 2. But above all the guys working here make it worth the visit (which we did almost every day on our trip!).

My group came to Kos to celebrate my 30th Birthday, we visited this restraunt twice during our stay, and the food was brilliant on both visits. The staff were amazing and friendly and made our dining experience excellent! I chose to visit the restraunt on my last day in Kos, because of the above. Highly recommend families and couple to...

We visited here twice during our week, the first time since it was recomended by our hotel, the second because we enjoyed our first meal so much. Great selection on mainly Greek menu and at prices we can only dream about in the UK. Set opposite the local bus terminus the view could be better, but later in the evening... More

Great food in this restaurant however I think we caught our waiter on a bad night. I had craved a prawn cocktail for a few days and was delighted to see it on the menu. Duly ordered along with two chicken main courses, we enjoyed a drink admiring the lovely view of the ocean. Along came our meal and we... More

We found Aktaion by chance. Glad we did! The traditional Greek food was excellent (fresh and not microwaved!). Excellent service and value for money. Highly recommend it for a meal while walking around Kos.

Great location next to port, the Maitre De offered great advice on food and wine, often recommending better quality at lower prices. It was so good and friendly we went twice!
