Bistro Boileau is "Closed until further notice" On top of the sudden death of Alex, her husband and Chef, last year, Sue (Boileau) has had to return to the UK as her father is seriously ill. I do hope that the future is kind to her and she will be able to return to the island and continue to serve... More

this is above your regular greek tavernas. the food is typical greek, with some international flair, made from best quality fresh ingredients cooked to perfection. there's nothing on the menu I wouldn't recommend; meats are grilled perfectly, this is probably one of the best grill places I've ever eaten at, including some fancy grill houses in major cities. try the...

This restaurant knocks the socks off any other in GOUVIA, the best steaks, especially the fillet. Also the ice cream with honey and nuts!

We have just returned from our second holiday in Gouvia and made 5 visits to the Bistro Boileau. We tried this lovely local restaurant in May 2014 and found the food and service just as good the second time around. Sue and Alex run a great restaurant, good value and the quality of food is excellent. We can highly recommend... More

A small family run taverna in the centre of the villiage. Food well presented and not rushed. Prices on par with the rest of Kontokali so it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Worth a visit.

Sorry to pour cold water on previous reviews, but this restaurant just gave a very good impression of someone who doesn't give a s***. In all the restaurants I review I always look for positives and in this case it is the quality of meat. However being the Kontokali end and not the Gouvia end of the strip it needs... More

The food in the Bistro Boileau really is excellent. It has a varied menu but the Steaks are so good that its really hard not to have one every time you visit, they are always cooked just the way you've asked, but I can also highly recommend the Lamb Chops, plus the vegetables are fresh and cooked al dente. It's... More
