Καλώς ήρθες! - Welcome to FAROS Kefalos - Kos Island

closed

The traditional restaurant FAROS is a real fish tavern and one of the first fish restaurants in Kefalos, Kamari area near the harbor. In addition to fresh fish (no cheap frozen or aquaculture fish) squid, octopus, lobster, mussels and shrimps are served. Our fishermen supply us every day with wild-caught marine delicacies.We protect our fish from the summer heat because the distance from the harbour to our refrigerators is only 50 (!) meters. Fresh as it gets!

Not only foreign tourists visit us, we have a good reputation among many locals and Greek tourists too - precisely because of the high quality of our food and our quiet and typical Greek traditional restaurant. The fish is cooked on a charcoal grill or in the pan, just as you wish. “You only add a bit of good olive oil and some salt; nothing more”, says our grill master. We also serve a delicious marinade of our own recipe with olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon; ..., you’ll certainly be in for a surprise! Our visitors come back again to enjoy our good, honest and tradition-conscious cuisine as well as the picturesque views of the sea and the mountains.

Of course, you can also enjoy meat dishes, vegetables in different variations, traditional oven cooked dishes, vegetarian or vegan dishes, salads and desserts. We offer various dishes from our charcoal grill. A very extensive range of starters completes the dishes. Do you have special wishes or possible incompatibilities? Please contact us, we will surely find a pleasurable solution.

Our octopus salad deserves special mention here, because it is made with a very sophisticated special recipe. Our octopus is tender, soft and very aromatic. We first cook it gently in vinegar with a mixture of herbs and spices, and then we let it cool into a wonderful marinade.

Since 2014 prepares dishes according to traditional Greek recipes our chef Manolis. The milk pie is a combination of creamy custard and flaky phyllo dough that is baked to golden perfection and then is drenched with aromatic syrup. Another specialty is the traditional baklava with thin layers of pastry, chopped nuts and syrup. These two desserts are always fresh.

Our Philosophy

We place a high value on natural and environmentally friendly production of food. This is an essential prerequisite for high-quality dishes with intense, natural and pure taste.

We can be certain about the high quality of our dishes because we get our supplies from local producers.

We are fortunate to be able to get our potatoes, various vegetables, goat meat and milk products from a family member. Not only the freshest supply is guaranteed, but we also know, through frequent on-the-spot visits, that environmentally sound agricultural practices are observed.

Our fishermen still maintain the traditional net fishing practice, although this is less effective than the prohibited fishing with dynamite, but we place a great importance on environmental sustainability; for example: the holes in the nets are of a certain size, so small fish can swim through very easily and remain in the sea.

Luckily for you, the grandparents reserved a piece of land with olive trees; thus we are able to supply the restaurant with our own, highly aromatic olive oil. Usually, towards the end of November, we harvest the precious fruits by hand and bring them to the mill. It is a full time job, but if the gold-greenish juice flows into our canisters, every effort is forgotten. Feast on it!

Journey

Take the main road leading to the west coasts of the island. If you come from Kos town, take the road towards the airport. Driving past the airport area follow the street signs to “Kefalos”.



At some point you will enjoy a panoramic view of Kefalos and then the road will take you down through the elongated coastal town of Kamari. Before the road rises again to the traditional village of Kefalos, turn left towards the sea and follow the boardwalk to the small harbour (Limeniskos Kamari). At the end of the road you will find “FAROS” fish tavern right next to the small fishing harbour in the picturesque bay of Kefalos, Kamari area.
