Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stopped her for dinner and wine after seeing the sunset. All of the food tasted very fresh and flavoursome, we were very pleased. The service was also incredibly upbeat and friendly! We watched the sunset else wear however the restaurant offered a beautiful view of...the night sky so you could also see the sunset here too!More

Amazing food tonight, a stunning view of the sunset and the service was excellent. Would highly recommend anyone coming to Kos to make a trip to Zia at sunset and make sure you book a table here

We went for dinner at Olympia 2 and were given seats on the roof terrace - a perfect spot to watch the sunset. The food was delicious (the cheese in pastry and honey as a starter is fantastic) and the staff very kind. We were...astounded when our bill for five drinks, two starters and two mains came to just €50! 10/10 a wonderful place!More

Arrived early and taken to the roof terrace ( if you can book here do so!). Staff were friendly and welcoming! Sunset was stunning though some quite rude And inconsiderate people taking photos while people were enjoying their meals Food was exceptional. I have no...other words it was simply exceptional! The best meal in the best location we have ever had Highly recommendMore

Food was nice and cooked properly, and good service. Nice location next to coach drop off if booked through TUI. Only complaint was offered water on arrival, bread as a starter upon ordering a meal, and a shot of something when leaving under the impression...it was free of charge like other places I’ve been on holiday and other places in Kos however this was charged extra on the receipt that I received written in Greek so that I could not understand and had to have explained to me by a waiter. Other than that brilliant location, food and serviceMore

Mediocre food. Musaka was good, not great. Fried Calamari was rubbery, not crispy. And the local dish Dakos seems to be an acquired taste… soggy bread topped with grated tomato’s and soft white cheese. The service was pretty friendly but the meal was wasted calories....But, hey, you come here for the view anyway! Oh, one more thing… at the far end of the balcony there are three stairs. They are completely uneven and dangerous. While I was sitting at my table I saw one kid (around 4 y/o) crash on his face partially blocking with his arm. Then I saw an older woman nearly fall. I almost wanted to stand by the chairs and warn people as the prepare to step down. But heck — it’s not too difficult to fix this for the safety of your guests. That’s one star down.More

A restaurant with a lot of potential that just seems to be following the stream and selling average food at premium prices when it has the potential to be a lot better. Service is slow and food is average.

Six of us ate here for our evening meal at sunset. We had a table on the roof terrace and the view was simply magnificent. Food, drinks and service were all very very good. No faults or issues.

Wow, just wow!! There’s no doubt in my mind that we’ve just spent the best night of our holiday at Olympia 2 in Zia. Of course, the restaurant was part of it, but the sunset views do the rest! First tip would be to book...the restaurant well in advance - even before leaving your home. If you are a couple then ask for a table close to the stairs. Make sure it’s the rooftop garden when booking. Second tip - don’t book the excursion with you travel company eg TUI. Instead, hire a car from 5:00pm through 9pm. We hired a beach buggy for 3 of us from Kombos Car Rental in Marmari and it cost €50 for the night. The reason for hiring the car - get to Zia early, have a wander around the shops before the tourist busses arrive and head to the restaurant around 6:30. It’s much quieter then - it gets very busy very quickly as sunset approaches and I wouldn’t want to be eating and not appreciating the view! Olympia 2 was great - location, service and food were all top notch. We had bread and two of the cheese based starters, one with pomegranate and the other with tomato jam…….they were both outstanding!! We then had moussaka, a fillet steak and calamari for mains……..the steak was great, the other two were good. Drinks were good too - we had 2 bottles of water, a beer, a couple of aperol spritzers. Total cost for the meal was €80 - really reasonable for the quality of food, service and experience. Now……..the sunset. It really is as good as the reviews suggest. It’s simply beautiful. I would thoroughly recommend Zia and Olympia 2 for a must do night in KosMore

We booked this taverna through our Tui representative and I would insist you reserve a spot in a restaurant in Zia if you are to go. We arrived at the correct time and I just say we were very lucky that we got the spot...we did, it was probably the best spot in the restaurant upstairs. Do expect though, if you’re sat by the stairs, people will flock over when the sun sets and potentially ruin your view. The service was quick and efficient and the staff were very friendly. The starter was very good and left us with high expectations for the main. But how the reason for the score. We had the pork souvlaki and mixed grill. And the meals were both disappointing and we were somewhat sad because the started was great. The meat wasn’t great and was fairly chewy and greasy. The chips were nice to me however, my wife didn’t like them as she thought they tasted like fish. The drinks were nice and reasonably priced. Imo I feel the menu was geared towards a very touristy crowd. I believe if they leant heavily into a traditional Greek menu it would be much better.More

WOW is all I can say, booked this through our holiday providers TUI, they reserved us the table for my birthday evening. Absolutely stunning from the moment we entered the staff was so friendly and couldn’t assist enough. The food was perfect, tried Moussaka for...the first time and I went back again for this again as I enjoyed it so much! Highly recommend trying this even if you have had it else where no one can make it as good as Olympia 2! They even brought out a cake for me as it was my birthday and made everyone sing, not saying I am happy about this as I wanted the flow to swallow me up but what a lovely gesture!! Please please visit Olympia 2 in Zia By night for sunset and please also try and go again during day time Would return here everyday if I could 10/10 easily!!!More
