Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Delicious food and a wonderful atmosphere. We ate here 3 times during our week in Messonghi, traditional food from a family run business, don't visit Messonghi without eating here. The sirloin steak was melt in the mouth but we can also recommend the stifado, pasta...carbonara, saganaki and the homemade house wine. The staff all make you feel so welcome, it made our holiday experience very special.More

Everything about this taverna is wonderful. We were recommended to go there by the concierge at our hotel and he was absolutely right. The food is all home made and authentically Greek. The carafes of wine are also their own and very drinkable. The staff...are all very welcoming and the atmosphere was what you would expect from a lovely Greek taverna. Definitely worth a visitMore

We loved Kosta's! We stayed in Messonghi for a week and ate at Kosta's three nights, it was that good! The staff are so friendly and helpful, even though we were at the end of the season and I'm sure they were tired! But they...were so helpful and friendly and made our stay so special. The food was wonderful, maybe the best halloumi I've ever had. And great, huge greek salads. But one of the real treats was the Kleftiko, which was served in a special bowl. The swordfish was amazing too. We will hopefully be back!More

Before I begin giving Kosta a glowing review I would like to make people aware of the severe shortage of Hospitality workers not only here in the UK but when you go on holiday worldwide so bear this in mind that just because YOU are...on holiday does not change the fact that Restaurants are trying to give you a great experience with minimal staff that you are not aware of. Kosta has certainly had staffing issues this season but this has not affected the excellent service, food and hospitality that we received on all 5 nights we visited. My husband and I have been coming to Kosta’s for a few years now and he and his staff never disappoint . From the moment you walk in to the friendly way the staff welcome you. The food is great traditional Greek food that I for one think is the best in the area. The house wine in the lovely carafes, the vines on the roof, Sakanaki to die for, Steaks melt in your mouth, Pastitsio,Moussaka, Stifado all authentic recipes some cooked by Kosta’s mother. The little desserts at the end of your meal with an added delight of a glass of Greek Brandy truly lovely. So ignore all the bad reviews and see for yourself when you visit Messonghi and pay Kosta and his amazing workers a visit you won’t be disappointed. Thank you Kosta and your amazing team. And not forgetting Barbara you are all great 🥰 Rachel and GeorgeMore

Wonderful and cosy place, tasty food - we especially enjoyed corfuan dishes like Stifado and Kleftico, but also aubergine rolls, mussaka, octopus and squid - all were delicious and very satisfying. We loved the atmosphere and became friends with the stuff. If we come back,...we will go there for sure! Love from London and Hamburg to Sami, Vikky, Varvara and of course the chef - Kostas!More

By far the best restaurant in Messongi, such a lovely welcoming feel, in beautiful traditional setting. Waitresses so attentive and genuine, my daughters begged to go back a second and third time. Stunning food, the carbonara and lamb kleftico highly recommended. Nothing was too much...trouble for the staff here, they danced and sang with my children and gave us a lovely little hand decorated jug to remember them by. Always full despite being slightly hidden away down a side street, if we were ever to return to Corfu I would be straight back to Kostas :)More

Very traditional indeed, Like stepping back in time to our first visit to Corfu in 1988. Three visits over our Messonghi holidays in 2022 and 2023 and enjoyed every time. Always friendly and lively. Comfort food at reasonable prices. Always a little "extra" at the...end of each meal.More

What can we say, what a beautiful family and restaurant. We dined here 4 times after coming here. The quality of food you can taste the difference. Every mouthful was home made high quality goodness but at a super affordable price. The family was so...sweet they gave us complimentary desert, digestives and a home made pottery when we told them we loved the food. A true authentic Greek restaurant. We tried another highly rated restaurant nearby and were very disappointed. Definitely go here it was our highlight of GreeceMore
