Other reviews will tell you about how fantastic the fish dishes are. And they are right. Many of the tavernas in Kouloutoufari will claim to be home cooking, and they might be. But this is the real deal. Nikos catches the fish, Sylvia (daughter) waits at tables and Mum cooks the meals with passion. Food is excellent tasting and served... More

Definitely the best restaurant we ate in Piskopiano. Fish was definitely very fresh and thanks to Cleopatra, our nights on the patio were amazing! Thanks and we will be back!

Whilst there are many places to eat in Koutouloufari this is the best for fish and the special of the day for meat lovers is excellent. We ate here three times in the two weeks we were in Crete and on each occasion the food just got better. Nikos does the fishing, so any fish of the day is always... More

Mrs Benny and I visited about 1 week ago. We ate here twice and here's what we think; Service/Ambience Staff are all family members and are Informative, keen and very friendly. The style of the restaurant is pure Greek White and blue. One feels like one is sitting in the family dining room. Food/££ We ate here twice and had... More

We found Nikos on the last night of our holiday. What a shame it wasn't earlier! My wife and I shared a fish selection. It was delicious. Squid, octopus, shrimps, sardines and sword fish, all tasted great and generous portions. My daughter had meat balls and their fantastic potatoes, delicious too. Its a real family business. Silvia (daughter), our waitress,... More

Wow, my sister visited this 6 weeks before I came out to same place. She recommended them to me. Paid them a visit, the food was outstanding and they looked at me and recognised my sister ( we are twins!) homely and amazing quality, more expensive than some others but still amazing value considering quality of the food.
