We always eat here at least once when staying on the island. The food is simple, tasty and reasonably priced. The owners are great people who will cater for your needs. On our last visit we didn't even bother with the menu, we just asked for some vegetarian Greek food. His reply was "I'll put something together for you" When... More

If you are not picky, take a stroll up the hill, away from the tacky tourist trap restaurants in Kos and take a seat at Ambavris! This was, by far, the best meal that I ate in 2014. If you are adventurous, hungry, order the Mezada/Mezze and buckle up for a multi-course meal. I told the kind and hospitable owner... More

We have had a meal there during our break in Kos and it was very nice, cooked to order and tasty. Friendly and not pushy staff. Reasonable prices. One to try again

What a wonderful place. Lovely service in a very pretty setting, with great food. We visited here three times during our week's holiday, and every time the food was perfect. The chicken estragon is divine, as is the stifado, and I really loved the eggplant and courgette starter! If you want to sample great food in an intimate setting then... More
