Good authentic tavernas aren't that easy to find in Kos town. The Fish House Taverna was a great find. We ate on the tiny terrace by the steps. The food was very good, and we really enjoyed the lady outside who was greeting guests. She was friendly and recommend where we should go for a drink afterwards. A great experience.

This restaurant is well worth a visit. If you're lucky to get the end table right by the sea you will have an amazing view of the beach and surrounding islands. It was so dreamy sitting there and just listening to the waves lapping on the beach. The food was beautifully presented and gorgeous to taste. The staff are so... More

Lovely setting. Lovely food and service but way too expensive. There are otherplaces nearby that are just as tasty but wont bash your wallet. Our local Greek friends agree.

We checked out many different restaurants' menu before sitting here and found this had the richest menu with a different variety of choices. The design of the place looked at first like a tourist trap, but it was NOT! The food was great, special and fresh, the service was good and friendly. It's spacious and has a pleasant atmosphere. I'd... More

We have just finished our meal at this taverna. What an excellent experience. Late lunch. Very accommodating for me to go off menu. The food was cooked perfectly. And you can also view the fresh fish of the day. It was also very romantic setting with excellent service. All staff were very friendly.

We visited two unexceptional, but highly recommended restaurants and were very disappointed. We spotted The Fish House Taverna in our guide book and when we visited Kos Town one day. We found exactly what we wanted here. Great, fresh food and friendly, competent service. You will be solicited by the restaurants in the main stretch opposite the Harbour, but this... More

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!
