We were suggested to eat here by Aphrodite from @54, you get to pick your fish/seafood fresh out of their catch for the day so I believe the menu changes everyday. I had seabass and they de bone it if you wish, which i did, it was 20 Euros which I think it decent for such a big fresh fish!... read more

We stumbled upon this place based on a jewelers suggestion while trying to find another place! Once we walked by and saw the fish on the charcoal grill we were set on eating there. The atmosphere is really fun, there are a few areas that you can sit, garden, inside, outside, balcony (where we sat). We walked down to the... More

Throughout Greece you are kindly welcomed with wonderful Greek hospitality except not the case here. Of all the restaurants we ate we could not find a wait staff more unwelcoming than this restaurant. Things got off to a bad start when we ordered two Greek salads and one of them had two hairs in the plate. I called the waiter... More

We visited Kounelas based upon the recommendation from Rick Steve's, and once, again, we were glad we did! We were shown the variety of fresh fish that was available and it was weighed in front of us to provide the price/ gram cost. My husband picked out his own Sea Bream and I tried the grilled octopus. We were seated... More

We ate at Nikos last night and we're really disappointed with the food and service. Kounelaa is just around the corner and from entrance to exit the service was excellent, food gorgeous and fresh. I choose a fresh sea bass from the kitchen selection which was immediately grilled served with minimal fuss and trimmings. Seating is cosy, under cover inside... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by another restaurant, Vangelis Taverna in Ano Mera, some 4 miles away, as we were looking for a good place to eat fish. Put simply, the whole evening was a super success, my wife's seafood spaghetti and my giant pork steak both excellent and the friendly, attentive, smiling service a joy to observe. The... More

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor because we wanted some excellent seafood. Kounelas is off the beaten path but there are signs that point you in the right direction. We got one of the two tables on the second floor terrace but there are lots of seats inside on the second floor and outside in the garden. We ordered the... More

Just happened to stumble across this wonderful restaurant. We had Sea Bream and Sea Bass....they were both cooked to perfection and filleted for us. Very busy when we were there but had fantastic service. Highly recommended.

If you want some really fresh fish or seafood go to Kounelas. They don't have the fish on the menu because they sell what they caught in the morning. You go to the kitchen and just choose the fish you want. It was just delicious and all the staff were super friendly and helped us make the right choice for... More
