Καλώς ήρθες! - Welcome to FAROS Kefalos - Kos Island

The traditional restaurant FAROS is one of the first restaurants in the bay of Kamari, directly at the small harbor. Not only foreign tourists visit us, we also have a good reputation among many locals and Greek tourists - precisely because of the high quality of our food.

Every day we try to get fresh, wild-caught fish from the returning fishermen, which unfortunately becomes more and more difficult. Sometimes we are not offered wild caught fish and have to resort to frozen goods. Calamari, octopus, lobsters, mussels and shrimps complete our fish and seafood offer.

We serve the fish from the charcoal grill or from the pan, just as you wish. "A little olive oil and good salt, that's all it takes", says our grill master. Nevertheless, we still serve you a delicious marinade made from our own olive oil, fresh lemon and ..., let us surprise you. Our good, honest and traditional cuisine, the picturesque view of the sea and the mountains, make our visitors come back with pleasure.

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.

The galaktobouriko, (fylo puff pastry with a kind of semolina pudding baked in the oven) the fresh apple pie and the baklava, (fylo puff pastry with walnuts and syrup) are legendary. These desserts are always freshly prepared in rotation. Please ask us about them.

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.

We prefer - if possible - wild catch. Our fishermen still maintain the traditional net catch. The holes of the nets have a certain size, so that very small fish can swim through very easily and remain in the sea.

Fortunately, the grandparents have already purchased a piece of land near the FAROS and planted with olive trees. Thus, we are able to supply the restaurant with our own highly aromatic olive oil. Usually at the end of November we harvest the precious fruits by hand and bring them to the oil mill. It is a time full of work, but when the golden-green shimmering juice flows into our canisters, all effort is forgotten. Let yourself taste 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.
