Tucked away in the back streets of Kos this traditional Greek taverna serves up excellent tasty meals at reasonable prices. The owner will give recommendations from the menu and i enjoyed a lovely kleftiko and juicy lamb chops. Wine can be brought by the litre or half litre and was really good quality. Will definitely visit this lovely taverna again in the future.

If you like the traditional Greek dishes such as Stifado, Gouvetsi, Souvlaki etc this is the place for you. Lovely host who has been running the place for nearly 30 years. The food was delicious and the service very friendly. We shared a prawn saganaki which was fab and then had chicken souvlaki which was really well cooked and tender and gouvetsi, again really tender meat and very tasty. Would definitely go back next time we visit Kos Town.

Came here for a quick bite around midnight after a late flight. We were greeted by very friendly waiting staff. Food arrived quickly and was absolutely delicious, extremely fresh and flavourful. We had the grilled octopus (divine), Greek salad, saganaki with honey and sesame seeds, tzatziki and garlic bread. We also had some watermelon for dessert after that the owner kindly gave to us after seeing us looking. Such a lovely dining experience. I expect we will be returning again this week!

When we arrived there were several empty tables and were given a choice. This is pretty much where the good experience stopped. We waited 50 minutes for starters, which in all honesty, the garlic bread cheese had virtually no cheese on, yet ones that were being taken to other tables had a lot more on. The baked mushroom starter had no real flavour to it other than a cheese sauce, despite it looking appealing. The lamb kleftiko was dry and lamb not tasty. The mixed grill that had the gyros, chicken souvlaki had no flavour, just tasted like cooked chicken on a skewer, the gyros was burnt and fatty, the burger was standard, the only nice thing was the lamb chop which had hardly any meat but that it is to be expected. The service has been really slow, we waited 15 minutes for our plates to be cleared only after I stacked them. The servers busy talking to German guests and paid no attention to us. Very disappointed in the whole meal. This is the first time in 4 visits to Greece I would not recommend

As soon as we walked in, we were struck by the lovely outside seating area and decoration. The service was very welcoming and we were greeted very kindly. We ordered a gyros with cheese bake and a Hippocrates plate as well as garlic bread to share and we couldn't fault any of it. We wished we weren't on our last full day as we just wanted to go back again. An aspect we also liked was how on the menu they shown a picture of every single dish to help you choose and in our opinion shows the restaurant is confident about its food. Finally the price was good with it coming to €33 and given a free bottle of water each at the end. We definitely recommend.

Having hired bikes we decided to set out for restaurants further afield then Kanari. We stumbled upon here, having walked back a little from the harbour front. The pictures on the menu were invaluable, and a true representation of what was being served. There was a huge amount of choice, and all waiting staff were lovely. The food was freshly cooked, piping hot and plentiful.

Amazing food and all cooked fresh. Great for dietary requirements. They cooked me something with wheat and took back when I explained I couldn’t eat it and cooked me a new dish. Lovely staff and fantastic service! Thank you for a lovely dinner!

This was the second time we visited Hirodion in our holiday on Kos. It is nestled in a back street off the main beachfront and is a delightful little location. What brought us back was the hospitality of the host and the quality of the food on our first visit. This time we decided we wanted to have a Greek meze experience. Georgeos recognised us immediately and ushered us to a favourable location at the front of the restaurant. We were then superbly looked after by Katerina who understood our request and was able to provide helpful insights into the menu. There is a fabulous selection of hot and cold dishes that can be shared to create the Meze experience. Special mention must go to the shrimp, fried courgette and the peppers which were all stunning. We finished our evening with a sumptuous Baklava and shots on the house before we wended our way home with the chilled bottles of water provided free of charge by the restaurant. Thank you, Katerina for your help with our meal and Georgeos for simply being yourself. Yamas!

Best restaurant in Kos! We dined here several times, based on recommendations from locals. The food was amazing! Excellent value for money and the owner is a legend! He even gave us water for the walk home. We tried several local delicacies, including aome dabulous home made desserts - my companion is vegetarian and was pleased with the options. A must try if you're in the area!

Busy restaurant disappointed us both tonight with small portions and low quality preparation. I had Ribs in sauce, rubbery half a small rack of Ribs with a tasteless basting of sauce with a few potatoes and a smidgen of salad. My partner had steak with garlic butter, small steak that turned up well done with a salad and chips with a mass of onion rings. Add two large waters and a small pitta bread and it came to over 42 Euros, much more than we paid last night in the next door restaurant where we got much better quality and literally twice the amount.

Third year running to this restaurant and can't wait to go again next year. Great food and service. This year it was full around 8pm but the owner asked us to wait inside until a table was available. Even though it can be hard to find once you've beenyou'll go back.

If you are in Kos, you must stop at this restaurant. The food, the energy, the atmosphere is simply wonderful. We ourselves felt as if we had come home. George and his team are wonderful, kind, warm. The food that comes from the hands of George's wife is absolutely divine. Hirodion Taverna team, thank you for the wonderful dinners and a better holiday! <3
