Dining in Kos, Best Places to Eat!


The two best spots to dine in Kos are Oromedon and Avli.


Oromedon, located in Zia, Kos up Mount Dikanos. They have a fantastic view you can enjoy while savoring their selections of traditional food and drinks. You can see the Aegean Sea and the Salt Flats near Tigkaki while the sunsets as you dine on the lush, expertly prepared menu.

Avli, near Kardamena, Greece is an amazing courtyard dining experience. The food is excellent traditional and Mediterranean, seafood and vegetarian are available (in both places). While enjoying your yacht charter trip, dine in the open courtyard at Avli for a fantastic view of the night sky and stars to enjoy in a peaceful setting.

What Type of Charter?

Fully Crewed is the way to go when you are out on a family holiday. The boat has a captain and crew so you can enjoy your vacation without worrying about the vessel or provisions! A fully crewed yacht charter offers many amenities and choices in which yacht you would like to have. Yacht charters are of course; fully staffed with captain and crew, all the provisions you need for dining on your yacht when you are not visiting the harbors.

Yacht charters are well equipped, you can swim, snorkel, enjoy the deck and take in the sun, or simply go island hopping for a splendid adventure.

Yacht Charter in KosThe Best Marina in Kos 

Without a doubt, it is Kos Marina situated about a mile SE from Kos old harbor. It is a full-service marina with plenty of seasoned people who can advise and even run your yacht Charter for a true holiday. The marina is easily accessible, and the experts will be more than happy to help you with your needs. There’s plenty to do from this beautiful harbor; shop in the stores, enjoy the gorgeous beaches, and stroll along the harbor: taking in the magnificent view of the yachts in the harbor or at sea. Your trip on the water will be an unforgettable experience once you have been to the marinas and enjoyed the hospitality of the people there.


With all the food and dining places in Kos, they have traditional cuisine along with the Mediterranean; seafood is plentiful, and so are the ways food is prepared. No matter what it is you order, it will give you a mouth-watering eating adventure that will be remembered fondly.

There are plenty of Mediterranean restaurants in the US, but once you have the original cuisine of an unspoiled island, you will want to return again and again. Everything is fresh and prepared when it is ordered, not thawed in a microwave and re-warmed. Vegetables are superbly fresh and delightful. It is easy to observe why the people of this region are so healthy and energetic!

In Conclusion

A sailing trip in Kos will be enjoyed by anyone lucky enough to experience it, making it a regular place to be after experiencing the magical Aegean Sea with its blue waters and that fabulous sunset from the bow of your yacht or a romantic restaurant. A must see getaway!

  1. This sounds so heavenly, and something to be added onto the bucket list for the future. I like the idea of a fully crewed yacht charter, especially if you want to drink a little bit of wine while enjoying the sunshine! What sort of price range would a week of this type of charter cost? And how many people would it be usual to take on the boat? The water looks so blue, and it’s helpful you’ve added a list of things to do and where to eat out.

    • Hi Mara,

      Indeed, I totally agree with you, Kos is incredibly beautiful, and yes, it is an excellent idea to put it on your bucket list:)

      Yes, a crewed yacht charter will definitely allow you to enjoy the sun with a glass of wine in your hand! No doubt about it:)

      There are several options for yacht charter. You have the possibility to hire a skipper on your boat, or if you have a skipper license, then a bareboat charter is also a great choice. If you want to spoil yourself and enjoy fully your sailing trip, then a crewed yacht charter will be the best alternative. Of course, prices will vary depending on your requirement. As I have stated in the precedent comment, it is practically impossible to evaluate the price without knowing your plans. The best way to know about the price is to ask for a free quote. It doesn’t cost anything, and you’ll be informed! If you wish to do so, you can fill out the fom. I hope it helped! Feel free to if you wish to know more info. I am always happy to help!

      Thank you for the comment and wish you a fantastic day!

  2. I have always fancied a sailing holiday, especially round the Greek Islands. Some of those places you recommended to visit (and eat) sounded lovely. I didn’t realise Kos was so flat either.

    How much would a trip like this cost roughly for two people? Are there different options in terms of how many meals would be included on the boat for example?

    And is Kos itself quite pricey?

    Thanks 🙂


    • Hi Louise,

      Yes, Kos is absolutely beautiful and charming, especially by boat!

      To answer your question about how much a yacht charter would cost for two people. Prices will vary according to your requirements. For example, it will depend on the type of boat, the kind of charter (Crewed, bareboat, skippered) the year of the yacht, the destination, etc.

      There are a couple of things to take into consideration when planning a yacht charter. It is entirely different from an organized sailing tour where everything is set in advance. Meaning, the boat has been already chosen by the company as well as the destination, the meals, and the schedule. As opposed to the sailing tour, you are the one who chose. This is why it is hard to evaluate the exact price without knowing your requirements. However, if you are looking for yacht charter at a reasonable price, I would recommend you rent a cabin on a crewed yacht. This is one of the best choices for a couple who wish to sail in comfort and at an affordable price. Here is an article about renting a cabin on a yacht, I am sure you will find it interesting!

      I hope it helped and if you wish to know further information, please don’t hesitate to contact me, I’ll be more than happy to assist!

      Thank you for the comment and wish you a wonderful day!
