We have eaten several times at the Tasty Palace Restaurant and enjoyed every moment, The greatest problem is deciding what to have from the extensive menu, the second question is whether you will manage to eat it all!. We would recommend the housewines, sold by the carafe, but if you would like to try something different, they have a very good Macedonian Red on the winelist. There is an excellent, uninterrupted view of the sunset across the beach and the decor throughout the restaurant is definately above average. Chris and Kostas, the proprietors, have always been very friendly and welcoming, and Dssy, the cook, is an absolute treasure (and a great giggler!). In spite of all this the prices are about average for the village and very good value.
We have visited Mastihari several timesover the last 6 years and are going again in late July this year. If you want a relaxing holiday with friendle people and a laid back atmosphere this is the place for you. I must admit both my husband and I are in our 50s and not really interested in noisy nightlife! But each year we have been people have remembered us and many of the locals we now regard as friends. There are quite a few good restaurants in the village (our favourite being the Tasty Palace) and other amienities include a launderette,bakers several supermarkets of varying sizes, ferries to nearby Kalymnos, car hire(we would recommend Mastihari Travel) and buses to Kos town. The beach is sandy and has loungers for rent (E5 for 2sunbeds, an umberella and a small table per day)
I was sorry to see the last posting saying that someone had a bad meal at the Tasty Palace. We returned on the 29 August this year, after our 6th visit, and enjoyed every meal we ate there. The temperatures at that time were in the 40s and everyone seemed to be eating later in the evening than normal, once it had cooled down. I wonder if the gentleman complained about his meal at the time? Could it be that one mans meat is another mans poison? As we experienced a "bad meal" and poor service at his preferred restaurant.
Hi everyone, I just have a question. Does anyone know if the Casa Romana in Kos Town has reopened or is likely to reopen this year. We have been trying to see it for 8years but they have been renovating it! (Greek time?)
We visited Limionas for the first time last August. It's beautiful, what more can I say? As you drive from the main road down into the small bay the smell of wild thyme is wonderful and the views are amazing, it is worth stopping on the way because at one point you can see all the way to Mastihari half way along the island . Don't expect to find gift shops and masses of tourists on coaches but there is one restaurant/taverna where you are made very welcome at any time of the day.
