Good food with nice portions in low prize. It is a cheap traditional tavern with a yard among trees that make a cool atmosphere during midday hours.

This restaurant has wonderfully cooked traditional Greek food. It is extremely popular with locals especially students from the Patras Universities near Rio, and it is very reasonably priced for the students. It gets really busy. If you want great food without frills, this is the place to go.......if you find a seat!

we stopped for a short break ad were looking for a place to have lunch. Koukoutsis' tavern seemed a good choice, and it was. Food feels like homemade, the environment was cosy and the prices were surprisingly low. Highly recommended

This is the restaurant that you can eat meals from old years, something like family meals. In the village of Rio (aprox 7Km from Patra) is a warm place with customers from all the ages. You can choose meals traditional greek, salads and you can enjoy the service of the stuff. Value price for quality is good perhaps a little... More

Nice atmosphere. Good food. Very good desert. Compering to price I'm very happy and full. No menu here as they cook home food and you need to choose from daily course.

If you are in Rio (near Patra, Greece) and you want good quality food with very cheap price, this is the restaurant for you. You can't wait gourmet restaurant but value for money. With 15 Euro you feel full.

This is a long standing establishment in Rio, in Achaia. The meals are daily prepared and are a selection of local and national dishes made like my mother used to make! You should not miss this unpretentious food orgasm. It's a 'must.'

if you want to eat some real homemade food made like your grandmother's that's the place to be! The prices are good but the environment needs some improvement!
