We have just spent a week in Koukanaries. Visited Under the pine tree several times during this week for lunch and evening meal. Yannis and all of the staff are unbelievably attentive and friendly and service was super efficient. The food was incredible and extremely...well priced. Can't wait to go back again next year.More

We have visited two days in a row as the food was so delicious that we had to come back. The service was amazing and the staff were very friendly. We received complementary ice creams on both occasions which was a real treat! The portion...sizes are incredible for the price you pay, so it’s worth visiting. We will definitely be coming back for a third time! :)More

Under the Pine Tree was our favourite place for food during our recent visit to Koukounaries. It was used by locals and holidaymakers and on two of the nights we visited there were queues!! Just goes to show how popular it is. Although there were...queues we didn’t need to wait any longer than 19 mins and were served quickly. The food was amazing and far superior to anything we’d had a the other hotels or tavernas in the area. Lots of choice and something for everyone - even vegan. After we’d discovered it we ate there for lunch and dinner and didn’t go anywhere else. Please don’t miss this gem as you won’t regret it. The coats are lower than other places but the menu, quality of food and service is far superior m Enjoy!!!!!More

It’s interesting how bad this once fabulous eatery is now. Many of the people reviewing on here have only one post. It’s obviously the staff that are posting rave reviews.

We arrived on our first night for a quick Gyros. The order was wrong and really not that good. As we were leaving we were pointing to the waiter to show him cash on the table as a chef yelled 'oi pay' 😩 After trying...somewhere else and it being closed the next day we thought it may have been a one off so went back. This time we were yelled at for taking drinks out of the fridge (exactly what we'd done the night before). We just left. Having been to many Greek islands I've never experienced rudeness and aggressiveness at this level.More

About a 5 minute walk from Magda apartments, set next to the main road. Very much an taverna/cafe type thing, not a restaurant. It's a nice location, under a large pine tree. On the night we went there was quite a queue to get in....Nice but nothing special.More

Great place with good food, splendid service and very friendly people working there. Friends and I ate there almost daily and it was always great. The manager working there is a really nice guy, always making us feel welcome.

Our third holiday in Skiathos and our second stay in Koukounaries. One of the main reasons for choosing Koukounaries again is that we didn’t want to be too far away from Under The Pine Trees! We were very impressed with this restaurant 3 years ago...and after 2 evening meals here this week, we still are. Under The Pine Trees continues to deliver great value for money. The food is still excellent and you get plenty of it. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, ensuring that your food is delivered promptly. They also have a good sense of humour and will chat to you. 10/10 for customer service guys! The menu offers quite a wide range of dishes considering it’s such a small establishment so I’m tempted to gradually work my way through it. The starters sound particularly interesting. However, I don’t think the grilled, meaty dishes will be beaten. The lamb was recommended to me the other night, which didn’t disappoint and my wife’s gyros portion was as good and plentiful as ever. The Greek salad deserves a mention too as it was one of the freshest and best we’ve eaten. Under The Pine Trees is without doubt our favourite place to eat in Koukounaries. We rarely return to a place where We’ve been disappointed with the food, the staff or cost. It speaks volumes then that we keep returning to this restaurant for more! Give it a go people, Under The Pine Trees is a great example of why we brits come to Greece!More

We went to dinner and we took the speciality of the evening , the lamb, it was delicious, well cooked and served in a huge plate with franch fries and vegetables. We decided to go back there also for lunch and we took pita gyros..., very tasty. They offer hearty meals, staff is very kind and the food is amazing. Highly recommend if you wanna test the traditional food of the island like soulaky,saganoki and pita gyros.More

We came to the restaurant under a recommendation but the sadly the restaurant has changed management. We were unable to order gyros because there were no wraps- a shame (bearing in mind this is one of the main ingredients) but not the end of the...world. Ordered lamb on the spit- unable to cut and really stringy- unable to eat (and I eat anything!). Mentioned this to the waitress at the end; who laughed at us- perhaps a language misunderstanding…..or not …the older waiter came over and told us off for complaining?! He shouted at us, saying we should have told him earlier (they only checked when our meals first came out). He then proceeded to tell our lovely friend to f*** off and leave. We were gob smacked! We had paid in full! Lots of the recent reviews describe the same aggressive behaviour from staff. His final comment telling us ‘typical English, go and enjoy brexit’. Mate you’re mainly catering to tourists- perhaps consider a career change before you run this place into the ground with your bizarre behaviour!! On the plus side, we got a mini ice cream at the end of the meal! Would never return and truly hope that this gentleman reconsiders his behaviour- at real risk of an altercation if other customers do not walk away as we did.More
