The best little restaurant in Koutouloufari by a mile. Fresh fish every day, complimentary nibbles while your looking at the menu, all served up by the beautiful Sylvia with help from Aurelio. You will not taste anything more authentic cooked by the wonderful Kleopatra. It's a little bit of Greek heaven, we will be back with all the family in... More

We were invited into the kitchen to see the days catch which was caught in the early hours that morning. it was beautifully cooked and unlike some other restaurants came with crushed potato's and assorted vegetables included in the price. Its a proper family run restaurant where the father does the fishing, the mum does the cooking and the children... More

We visited this lovely family fish restaurant yesterday. The Cretan Atmosphere and Good Service were worth every penny. We went down to the kitchen to see variety of day's fish and ordered it. There was more fish you could eat and fish was very good, but the highlight was family's little girl playing with our daughter and polishing her nails.... More

We visited this restaurant while in Koutouloufari recently and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. As its name suggests the restaurant specialises in fish, although it does also serve a range of other local dishes. I had the Kleftico and it was excellent. The serving staff were friendly and efficient and the food portions large (so much so that I regretted having... More

Not the best meal we had in Koutoulafari. My husband had fish which was a little overcooked and I had greek meatballs which were so salty they made me feel nauseous. We were given olives and anchovies with the starters and then charged for them! Service was incredibly slow.

Had this on our list after reading the TA reviews before we went. Sad to see the restaurant completely empty when we visited but were welcomed by the daughter of the owners who was lovely and very nice throughout service. The menu to be honest is a mess, loads of crossings out and different sections that don't seem to follow... More

Ten days in Koutoulafari, ate here three times. Does that tell you something? Fabulous. Unpretentious. First visit, taken into the kitchen to see what had been landed that day - chose a nice dorade/bream and tried scorpion fish for the first time. Excellent. The gigantes (beans) with spinach and lemon was outstanding. Second visit, ray and mullet - she did... More
