Traditional House

Restaurants in Mastihari

Graham M          10/10

Having returned to KOS yet again We were pleased to find the Traditional has not lost its good, honest quality of food and service. If you want fast food or burger and chips dont come here But if you want a good Traditional meal served by the family in a friendly welcoming maner, who are in no rush to see you leave, This is the place to try.

Stavos and his delightful family will welcome you to their Restarant with the same warmth every time you visit and you will always be made to feel welcome,We would not miss a night or two with a glass of wine and the great sunset.

This is easily the best Taverna in Mastihari. We came here because of the recommendations on this website and I have to say that I am somewhat surprised by the negative reviews of 2 people. The food was anything but bland - full of flavour, with organic homegrown produce, and garlic - well, hello, Greek food does have garlic in it!! We were invited into the kitchens every time to look and see what the specials were that day, and ate something different every time. We were never disappointed with our choices - only sorry that we couldn't eat a starter as well, as the servings are so big! Great food, cheap prices and friendly service. We have been going to Greece for the last 20 or so years, and believe me, Greek food doesn't get much better than this!!!

Excellent place.  Good food but beware, lots of it.

We foolishly ordered one portion of traditional and one portion of garlic bread plus a Greek Salad.  Difficult to eat the main dish after that, but we'll learn.
Excellent hosts.
Strongly recommnded.


We went here one night, because my parents had wanted to go for a numebr of years...was very disapointed, the meals were a bit bland...i prefered other restaurants we ate in

This is our 11th year in Mastihari and again have not found any where better to eat that the traditional house, good fresh produce from the owners farm prepared and served by the family.

We are always treated as old friends and are welcomed with genuine hopitality, Thank you Stavos and see you next time.

This is the place to have a truly Traditional meal, good well cooked food.

Stavos and his family are frendly and will always welcome you with an invite to look at the specials in the kitchen.
The Breakfast is not for the faint hearted(big and filling) But a must try is the lamb and local veg.
Will return.

A family affair. In the evening the owners daughters help out and practice their english. Good choice of food. Cheese pies good and homemade. Fresh produce from family farm. Greek salad is good with a twist as their own cheese soaked in wine used. Could choice if the weather a bit iffy (not that it is much)

This taverna is down by the beach just behind the children's playground. We went on recommendation from this site, and we were so glad that we did. The meals we had there were by far the best of the holiday. All the produce comes from the owners' organic farm. Portions are very generous. The mother does all the cooking and you really feel that you are eating traditional homecooked food, just like they would eat themselves. Local people were eating there too which is always a good sign! We tried stifado, moussaka, sousoukakia (meat balls) and salads amongst other things. They were truly mouthwatering! Prices very reasonable. You must try this taverna!
