Every time the nicest place in the center of Kos, nice cafes and restaurants around, and a smell of exotic spices, don't miss this place.

After a hot morning walking around Kos Town we decided to stop for a drink in the square. There were several good cafes to choose from. It was great to have a break out of the sun with a drink and just watch the world...More
