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.

Desperados has the best food in Kavos, hands down. I first tried their chicken fajitas, which blew me away and I set on a mission to try everything on the menu that I possibly could. The absolute star of the show is their chilli nachos...on the starter menu! A word of advice if you are ordering a starter, they are huge but so worth the money! All the staff are incredibly nice and accommodating, especially the owner and his son! I would highly recommend this place to anyone as there are things on the menu for everyone of all tastes! And it’s all so good! If you do go (which you absolutely should) do yourself a favour and get the chilli nachos and all the sangria you can drink!!More

Well not sure what other people are seeing here. We chose it based on being in the top 10 on TripAdvisor. Our combo starter was fabulous, after that a bit downhill. Decent chardonnay/ Sauvignon Blanc wine but expensive dry red well over 50% above what...it should be based on other places in town. My husband had the chimichanga which at best he described as “ OK” . My chicken Caesar salad not a nice surprise. It came covered in a luminous green sauce which looked and tasted nothing like Caesar sauce we have had the world over. Visually off putting too. For some people it may be fine but just not my taste unfortunately.More

The staff were not friendly at all and definitely not accommodating to fit dietary needs. A very simple amendment to a food order was requested and they told us no very rudely leaving us feeling very uncomfortable at this restaurant.

Shocking service here, advertising food on the menu which they ‘don’t do anymore’ without telling customers when seated. Only 1 option for a vegan diet being tacos, after checking their Facebook and website where they advertise they do a vegan burger and have brought another...vegan burger to their menu which is false. Staff are quick enough to take your order but after that don’t check on how your food is or if you would like more drinks. Wouldn’t rate this place at all and wouldn’t recommend anyone to visit.More

We enjoyed an amazing Mexican meal here and wanted to recommend it as somewhere you try while in Kavos. The frozen margaritas are fantastic and I actually had one of the starters as a main after sharing a plate of nachos for starters. They had...obviously had alot of vegetarians in on the day we went as they were running low on some of the choices but staff were apologetic and helpful with alternative suggestions. We were very happy with our meal and trying here even though we were half board at our hotel. We love a good Mexican and this didn’t disappoint!More

Brilliant food and really busy which is a great sign. The Rodeo burger is a must to try, Angus beef and cooked perfect. If you're in Kavos, definitely hit it up.

Place was always heaving, so service could be a bit hit and miss 😕. The food was ok, nothing special. Also we found it to be more experience than other restaurants, feel free to check out my other reviews as during our 10 day stay...we experienced a lot of different placesMore
