We visited on 23rd April (this evening) and had a great time.

Excellent food and extremely friendly service. We wanted to sample traditional Greek food and really enjoyed the two starters and two mains. The Dolmades and Falafel were very tasty and great portions. The Moussaka and Beef Stew-extremely tender meat (both from Mama's special menu) were superb.

We were so full that we did not have room for desert! We are used to great service in Greece, but this was at a different level. We were made to feel so welcome.

The meal was very good value for money and would recommend to anybody staying in Lambi or Kos Town. We will hopefully be returning in the next few days!

The istros is a very good place to eat and drink quality food run by spyros and his family and in high season they have Greek nights with dancers and music on certain nights not to be missed

We ate at Istros twice during our holiday in Kos, and we really loved both the food and the service. We were asked several times if everything was ok, or if we wanted to have more drinks etc. The food was also really good. I had the Greek plate both times, and it was a little bit different the second time, which was a nice surprise! The next time we visit Kos we will definitively eat at Istros again. Really good Greek food!

Good food with a good restaurant, still busy in October which must be saying something!

Great service as well and 5-10% cheaper than eating in Kos Town for better food

We had one week holiday in Kos and we ate 3 times in Istros, wonderful family restaurant.

We recommend dolmades (hand-made and so good), feta with honey (new experiment for us, our favourite), saganaki, bakrimeze... all were good!

Lovely waitress told us to take 2-3 mezes + one main course for two. Greek way, she told us, and we liked it.

Food was excellent, but the reason we came back twice was the service: personal and still polite, with funny stories and jokes... we were so pleased.

They serve ouzo on the house in many restaurants before the check, but here we meet first time Mastika, local liquer. Had to buy couple bottles to home too.

We will come back some day :)
