This is a very pleasant family-run restaurant, with excellent local food. The service isn't fast, which isn't a problem in itself, but go to enjoyed a relaxed meal rather than a quick 'in and out'.

Our regular restaurant every year visiting Koutouloufari. Cleopatra and her family never fails and you will never leave this restaurant disappointed. This is top level in Greece. You must not miss it!

This place would've got 5 stars but wow did we have to wait for our food!!we went later on so there was hardly anyone else there. We waited about 25 mins for our starter then 45 mins between starter and main. The whole experience took over 2 hours which for us was just a bit too dragged out. The waitress... More

Nokia the Fisherman is a great restaurant in Koutoufoulari. Freshly caught fish by Nikos himself, leaving the marina at 3 a.m. every morning to catch remarkable food and cooked expertly by his wife. The lovely Sofia works the tables. It's a great meal and a wonderful night out. Second year for us, see you in 2015.

Great food. The owner is the fisherman, his wife cooks and their daughter is the front of the house. Friendly service. Wonderful food. We had the pork chop with wine and the sea bass. Both were outstanding. The bread, olives and side dishes were good too. Good value for the cost.

We have been eating here every year for a number of years and have never been disappointed. It's a full proof system that works, dad catches the food, mum cooks the food and daughter serves the food. It's truly outstanding the quality of food and you will not be able to order the same meal again anywhere else, it's "traditional"... More

It's a must try, the food is amazing, you get to go into the kitchen and pick your own fish, it's a true family run Greek restaurant, it's just simply one of the best places to eat. If you love great food then you have to go here!

This restaurant is a must if you are in Koutouloufari. They make you really welcome. The food is beautiful. All the fish is caught by the father and the mother cooks, the daughter is front of house. Everything is so fresh and beautifully cooked. The Lamp Shank is to die for! Highly recommended.

Had this restaurant recommended to us by other English people. Great food - enormous portions, I had Calamares and basically got a whole squid. Waiters were attentive without being a pain (see my comments about Galini). Prices very reasonable, even allowing for the generally quite high prices of seafood pretty much everywhere. Like all Cretan restaurants it took an eternity... More
