Description: Blu Kouzina is bringing its signature, wholesome Greek cooking to the Sunshine State after gracing for the past five years Singapore's culinary scene. The acclaimed restaurant, born out of the founders' passion for the food of their native Greece and their love of sharing a hearty, family meal with friends, has set up a second home in Sarasota. Fresh and quality ingredients, mostly grown organically, and sourced from well established, local producers are used in dishes that are both traditional and creatively contemporary. What remains uniquely Greek and genuine are the flavors and the scents of extra virgin olive oil, fresh fish or succulent lamb that will take you on a journey from a beach-side taverna to a rural mezze shop, where platters are shared among family and friends, sometimes amid heated arguments.

We love Greek food and spend quite a bit of time in Greece so I honestly wasn't sure what to expect from a Greek restaurant in Sarasota. But it was great! Lovely terrace, delicious fresh flavours, authentic tastes in every dish, even Greek beers on offer. Really couldn't fault it - highly recommended.

Tables were small for 4. Not that big a deal, just uncomfortable for a relaxing dinner. Table next to us got one of the fresh fish selections on a plank which was served with potato and green beans. Really looked great. We all ordered the same dish. When entrees came ours was cold, not warm but cold. Other couple's was hot. Ours was returned to be warmed and returned to us as our friends were completing their entree. Also no plank but served on a dinner plate with correspondingly smaller portions of vegetables. We won't darken their door again. Very disappointed for over $200 spent. Never again.

If you are looking for an authentic Greek restaurant in Sarasota, try Blu Kouzina on St. Armands. They serve a lot of fresh seafood (the waiter will come out with a tray showing a variety of freshly caught fish) but also serve traditional Greek favorites like pastitsio and souvlaki.

Their Greek salads are delish and the grilled calamari appetizer was excellent!

Blu Kouzina is the favourite restaurant of the owner of our rental unit on Lido Key, so we decided to try it. It certainly lived up to expectations. We went with friends who had eaten there previously. They had lamb chops, my wife had Cornish hen and I had a stuffed beef patty special. All of us thought our meals were delicious. They were also quite reasonably priced for St. Armand's. We will certainly be back as there are many interesting options on the menu. Service was excellent.
