We were taken to this restaurant by local friends who told us that many people travelled from several nearby towns to eat here - the excellent quality of the food and service left us in no doubt why they made the effort. The restaurant is on the seashore and much of it is under trees quaintly held aloft by man... More

Wow! Everything about Kalliotzinas for us is perfect, wether having a light lunch or a long drawn out dinner, the food is fantastic, cooked by grandmother, daughter and granddaughter. The setting is beautiful and typically Greek. When in Greece what more do you want? Very friendly and relaxed and great value for money. Top draw!

It is one of the most beautiful places in Koutsounari to have lunch or dinner. At first site, you will not see anything attractive, since you will visit it from the road side. But when you will enter the place you will feel very attractive from the amazing view. The food is exceptional as well. I recommend to try the... More

Kalliotzina is located right by the seaside in Koutsouras, and serves traditional, homemade, cozy food including both fish and meat recipies. We tried an extraordinary "cretan" salad (a horiatiki that was accompanied by a rusk-similar to the "dakos" salad served mostly in western Crete) as well as trully delicious "gemista" and "dolmades" (stuffed tomatoes, peppers/vine leaves, zucchini flowers). We also... More

Great greek taverna located by the sea. The food was excellent and so is the beautiful, rustic restaurant. Highly recommended.

What a beautiful place... Pfff... Since 1952 in business. Family continued what grand mother once started. And that is what you feel. Sitting on the terras we sat under old trees and felt "at home". The staff was very friendly. Sadly, our youngest boy of 4 was stung by a bee, and the staff was of great help. Our boy... More

Ideally located by the seaside, lots of space, typical cretan cuisine, very well executed (snails, rabbit, goat), friendly staff, fairly priced

Kalliotzina offers great fresh fish and a great enviroment! Whatever we tried - fresh fish, octupus, fried calamari, was more than great! Decent wine and great atmosfere. The only 'negative' for my personal taste the facts that cats are going around which i do not like ! Love that in the island offers you dessert as soon as you finish... More

We visited on the advice of some fellow beach visitors, and based on the description the bar was set very high. Unfortunately we were severely disappointed: most of the dishes we tried were simply ok. Prices were expensive for what we ordered. The atmosphere on the beach is nice, but the same goes for the other restaurant in the village... More

Nice place at the beach for lunch or dining under the trees. Very nice food! Try the Kalliotzina-salad and for sure the cheese pies!
