We dined here our first night on the island and it was very good. The menu is very creative and certainly not for those looking for traditional Greek food. Service was about the best we've received in Greece and we would definitely come back.

We visited with our 11 year old daughter at the recommendation of our hotel. When your gut feeling tells you something you should listen! We should have left as soon as we saw the menu but decided to give it a go as they offered to make my daughter pasta and tomato sauce as nothing at all suitable on the... More

Dear madam, thank you for your review. We are sorry you didn't like the particular dishes of our menu. Though, Koukoumavlos is an awarded gourmet restaurant, so they should have informed you about that from your hotel...The menu of such restaurants, worldwide, is not suitable for kids...And the prices in this kind of Fine Dinning Restaurants are commensurate with the...

Koukoumavlos Fine Dining Restaurant has won numerous accolades and awards, including Toque d’Or for many consecutive years. You can have a look inside. We were lucky that is already open for the summer. As it's Easter in Greece, and Greeks are fasting, he had special plates just them. Chef Pouliasis amazed us with his imaginative plates, combining unusual ingredients, and making... More

I ate in Koukoumavlos during October 2016 with my sister. Chef Nikos Pouliasis and his staff were the best! From the verandas the view to Fira and the volcano is breathtaking! His cuisine is so inventive and full of surprises. We enjoyed the first dishes, our main course and his famous sweets made with unpredictable ingredients! We strongly recommend it!

The first time I ate at Koukoumavlos was in 1996 or so, when the restaurant was still in Oia. The food and service has always wowed me, whether dinning alone, with a friend or a group. Do not expect the typical combo of tastes, rather you will experience a unique culinary adventure. What you will get is creative flavors most... More
