Kipos is a reflection of owner, Giorgios Baktasias' childhood: fresh and robust village foods cooked in wood-burning ovens, honoring old and modern recipes alike. Kalos Orisate (welcome) to our home.
Had two meals here in one week...both were fantastic experiences. Kipos brings energy to their amazing meals!
Thank you for the compliments! We're glad you enjoyed it so much that you had to come back for more! We look forward to your next visit to Kipos.
We love Kipos and dinner was delicious as always. Carson was a wonderful server and was helpful in picking out wine. Looking forward to our next visit!
We are so glad you enjoyed your dinner! We look forward to the next time we serve you.
Outstanding all around ... food, service, location, seating!
Thank you for the compliments!
Great food, imaginatively designed, well prepared, graciously served.
The noise level was so high we won't go back.
When we arrived, we asked for a table for two "in the quietest corner", since we perceived that the music was loud and the ambience generally somewhat noisy.
They seated us next to an empty table for 10, which it turned out had been reserved
for a birthday party. They came, talked, drank, talked, ate, and talked.
Nice atmosphere, good food, competent and attentive staff and mgmt., nice location on Franklin St in Chapel Hill.
very good food. super cute atmosphere. quick service
Food was amazing and the waitress gave great recommendations!
Tastes and smells are wonderful. Beautiful lighting, friendly staff. A no brainer.
We had a wonderful experience eating dinner with our freshman daughter and friends. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was festive. Kipos is definitely a favorite of ours!!
Excellent in every way!
the food was fabulous and the hostesses and our waiter were showed great level of attention with excellence!
I ordered the pork and received a piece of meat that was difficult to cut through...... gristle throughout. My friends lamb was much more tender.I should have sent mine back. The kitchen should check the cuts before they're taken to the dining table. Was not a pleasant meal for me.
very fun to go here. always entertaining. the food was good. the service was excellent. the place was very noisy and hard to talk, it was a business dinner, better for large parties i think
Highly recommend! Friendly and helpful staff. Delicious food.
You must try their exceptional wedding cookies.
Our dining experience at Kipos was fabulous ! The food was wonderful, especially the fish dishes that our party enjoyed. I felt that most of what we had was "authentic", not "Americanized" to fit what someone thinks this part of the US would like. We had a toddler and the service staff was very accommodating and patient with their "smallest customer". We will definitely return !
This restaurant is outstanding. We continued to eat way past being satiated, it was all so delicious, authentic and beautifully presented. Although, the atmosphere is family casual, this restaurant qualifies as a special occasion experience.
We waited 15 minutes before a server emerged. But Ava was wonderful!
Great food, could be a little better for the price.
The lamb was good but was essentially a lamb steak which was a little weird. The dips and grape leaves were stone cold, rice when served this cold becomes hard, obviously the grape leaves were made in advance and served straight from the fridge. Typically these items are served room temperature or even fresh when in Greece.
Service, wait staff and ambiance are impressive and seemed perfect. Overall had a lovely time with great food, but not the best.
Outstanding! Kevin was wonderful. Can’t say enough good things about this place!
We had a mini family reunion and the restaurant was very accommodating The table was ready on time, the food delicious and the service excellent.
Great Chapel Hill eatery - you simply must try it! I’ve been there 3 times with friends and family and I will be back.
Food was outstanding, and service was excellent. Had a nice talk with one of the owners who visited many of the tables. Will definitely go back
Elizabeth/Lizzie was fantastic! I have been to Kipos on three different occasions and she was, BY FAR, the best server in terms of knowledge, service, and expertise. Not only was our service fantastic, but the food was outstanding. Compliments to the back of the house, Giorgio, and Olga. See you again, soon.
This place is amazing! The atmosphere is awesome, the service was superb, the food was fantastic, and the live Greek music (at an acceptable decibel level) altogether made for an “experience” rather than a dinner. One of the best nights out in a long time!!
Consistently one of our Chapel Hill favorites. Cozy environment, great food and personable staff.
As always Kippos was outstanding and for Valentines day at that....A special 5 stars to the manager who instinctively moved us away from a door opening to a cozier table without a word from me. The host was literally in the process of sitting us, the manager saw it was the wrong move and offered us a better table on his own. The restaurant reflects a true professional is running the house. Thanks Kippos!!!!
The atmosphere at Kipos is amazing! The food is excellent. Perfect spot for a date night or a larger group.
We went to Kipos for Valentine’s Day. The food was top notch and our waiter was knowledgeable. I was happy to easily find food which was gluten free and dairy free. The mousse (though not dairy free) was incredible. The only downsides were the noise level and how packed we were among all the other patrons.
Great food served by a friendly waiter, who gave us good advice on the food options.
My husband and I visited Kipos for Valentine’s Day. It was fabulous. Very authentic Greek food w live Greek music.
The food, service and atmosphere was
Exactly what we were wanting.
I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Chapel Hill area!
Thank you for the review!
One of my favorite restaurants. Food and service is consistently outstanding. Opa!
Every time we come here it is fabulous!
Special was whole fish with crab and I didn’t taste any crab. Food was good but little expensive not sure it’s worth the price. Appetizers better than main course
Amazing food, great wine list, superb atmosphere whether you're just dining with your date or with a group of friends or family, and incredible service. We will be back for sure!
A wonderful evening of food, music and amazing service. I can’t wait for another terrific meal.
Food was good, but the seafood was a bit undercooked. Appetizers turned out great, and they had a great selection of wine.
Everything from the atmosphere to the food was amazing... Very friendly staff...can’t wait to go back
Food was excellent. Wait staff very accommodating- they were able to move our table so our group could talk. There was a live guitar player and towards the end of the night many patrons danced around the restaurant!! Very Lively!! The food was very good, I had leg of lamb special with lemon infused potatoes which were amazing !! Wife had trout and brother had Rice and meat balls I apologize that I don't recall the Greek names but the food was all excellent! Particular the lemon potatoes and Fire Grilled Octopus (appetizer) Everyone loved it!!
We are new to the area and I chose this restaurant based on the menu for my husband's birthday dinner. The food was wonderful. My husband just loved the beef short ribs. They were so tender he could cut them with just his fork. W enjoyed every course from saginaki to chocolate mouse cake. There is an excellent wine selection and the service was a delight. Thank you for a lovely evening beginning to end
