Proper traditional Greek and really reasonably priced as set back from the main tourist areas. We liked this so much we went there twice. Was recommended by a local as this is where she goes to eat too, which is the best recommendation you can...More

A wide variety of traditional meals from all over Greece (the owner is from the north somewhere) and generally anything you might like. Regardless of preference, there will surely be something really tasty for you. The only disadvantage is the relatively steep prices.

Meze Taverna Restaurant Fanos is dedicated to authentic Greek cuisine. Situated on the beautiful Aegean Island of Kos, Fanos was established in 2005. We created a friendly and warm homely environment for people to enjoy their dining and soon became a favorite dining hotspot. So what is the 'meze' way of dining? The closest translation would be a 'snack' or 'treat'. Rather than ordering a starter and a main course for example, Greeks prefer to order a whole lot of 'meze' dishes shared by two or more people, the idea being that rather than dine the classic starter and main course way, you get a whole variety of treats or 'meze' dishes and have a little bit (or a lot) of everything. In fact very few Greeks will actually even ask for a menu but rather trust the restaurateur to recommend some meze dishes which here at Fanos Restaurant are always prepared with the choicest ingredients and cooked to succulent perfection. So, enjoy the friendly atmosphere and let our staff guide you through a real Greek night out.Welcome to Fanos Meze Taverna Restaurant!
