Nice little place with good food, although it wasn't as good as our visit the previous year. Mix up with the wine - but hey ho it was sorted.

The fish is amazing! I had the fish soup and mussel and prawns. It's an amazing seafood experience! Everything fresh and well cooked, could not be any better. The owner is the fishman and his wife is the cook. Totally recommend this place. However it's not cheap, good quality comes with its cost The price is higher than the average... More

Nikos is still, after 12 years of visits to Koutouloufari, our favorite restaurant in this area, especially for its fish and sea food dishes. It is like coming home to visit this family run restaurant; Cleopatra as chef, Nikos as the fisherman and their daughter Silvia as the waiter and head of the restaurant. Traditional, tasty and top quality food... More

Although there are options other than fish, it seems sensible to have fish in a fish restaurant. This was the most expensive meal we ate in 14 days at €60 for two + wine. Very nice and interesting dishes, freshly prepared. It was fairly quiet when we were there - the restaurant is a bit further into Koutoufoularia, which is... More

What a little gem this family run small taverna is. The food is typical Greek cuisine simply cooked with fresh ingredients. My steak was done to perfection and my partners stifado was excellent and came with complementary green beans and mama's secret recipe potatoes Overall a superb meal
