We were on vacation at the Aqua Blu Boutique Hotel & Spa and decided to stay at the hotel for dinner all days. What a decision: my wife and I gain 5 kg during our stay :-).

All meals (starters, main cources and desserts) were excellent: fresh, delicious and surprising! I know some good michelin starred restaurants arould the world (my wife and I like first class dinners) and the meals at the CUVeE restaurant were like this! The surprise were the combination of different ingredients like the strawberries with the rocket in the Feta Cheese Tempura starter or strawberries in the Shrimps Risotto. And not to forget the perfect dessert for people who like sweet desserts: Choco-Lovers! And the absolut amazing are meet meals (also at the beach restaurant) because Stamatis likes low-temperature cooking and everything was optimally browned and succulently tendered.

These 18 days were for us a real gourmet journey!

Thanks to Stamatis and his team.

We, as the ultimate food lovers, are rather critical when it comes to restaurants and food. For our summer holidays we visited Kos for the first time and we stayed at Aqua Blu Boutique Hotel & Spa for two weeks. Our very first dining experience on Kos was at Cuvée Restaurant and we were over the clouds immediately. We chose to have the Chef’s Menu, which was a 5-course surprise. Each and every dish that came out of the kitchen, led by the great Chef Stamatis Marmarinos, was indeed a great surprise. The dishes all tasted fabulous and the plates were made up like a painting! We were really curious about what Cuvée Restaurant could do and we were thrilled to further explore the menu. After this evening we had dinner every night for two weeks at Cuvée Restaurant. Since we cannot eat certain products, the Chef did not hesitate to adjust some of the dishes for us and to experiment with products he normally did not use in the kitchen. For us, this was a very valuable experience! During the day we could enjoy fantastic lunch dishes near the pool and several times a week a special dinner event took place at the hotel, like a BBQ, Food Stories with each week a different main product, and a Meze evening with delicious tapas dishes. We dined with so much pleasure and fun at Cuvée Restaurant and we can truly say that Cuvée Restaurant is a real gastronomic joy and we cannot wait to dine there again! Third stop this year: October ninth!

Dear Jordi,
Thank you so much for your lovely review on trip advisor regarding your dining experiences at Cuvee Restaurant during your 2 week stay at Aqua Blu! We rarely get guests who dine EVERY evening at our restaurant, as they also want to explore the island, but truth is, there aren't any similar places at such gastronomical level in Kos town! We are extremely glad you enjoyed and appreciated your dining experiences with us and we really look forward to welcome you back at Cuvee and Aqua Blu at the end of October for more and new gastronomical journeys!!!!
Thank you once again for your kind review and recommendation of Cuvee Restaurant on trip advisor.
All the best and see you soon, Maria Strati, Hotel Manager Aqua Blu Boutique Hotel + Spa

I knew that, when we were about to visit Aqua Blu Hotel in Kos that it is a top notch hotel. What I didn't know is the wondeful and completely unexpected surpise that was waiting behind the kitchen doors of the Cuvee in house restaurant. Any words that try to narrate this culinary experience would not be enough, so I will just simply say that this is art for all senses. After dining there the first night of our stay, we decided that it would be a total waist of time to dine anywhere else, as we wanted to try all the dishes of the menu (besides how can you top perfection?).
I so look forward to going back again! This whole hoteling experience is impeccable!

To compliment a 5 star hotel you must have a 5 star restaurant! Aqua Blu certainly provides this. The food in "Cuvée" is some of the best you will find on the island, and if you are staying at the hotel it is fantastic to have it on your doorstep ! Chef Stamatis Marmarinos has created an exquisite menu for all tastes, one of our favourites at lunch was the Moussaka, and the evening menu leaves you spoilt for choice. If you enjoy your deserts then you have to try the one with " Piña Colada" ! The hotel has created a romantic setting with stunning food and great service! You must visit, you will not be disappointed.
