I visited Koukos on August 11th in the evening. Though the service in general was polite, it was extremely slow. the time between our starters and the meat dishes was 40 minutes. The lady in charge apologized about this but the result was basically the same. We tried the garlic bead with cheese (very nice), rhodian pasta (pretty bad) and... More

Food here is excellent as is the atmosphere. Staff are very friendly! Tourists and locals both eat here. Best to book as it gets busy and you can wait quite a while to be served if not! I have been many times and will keep going again!

The food was good, the service decent (they forgot one of the dishes), the environment nice (good roof garden). A little on the expensive side, especially for food that is not great.

If that was possible. The food was average to good with no outstanding taste and not anything bad about it. We had aubergine salad which was not really salad but fresh cooked aubergines with some feta. The freshness was a plus the lack of flavor was not. The greek salad was good with fresh ingredients but not the best feta.... More

Very nice restaurant, very pitoresque, greek music in the backround, waiters and bartender very attentive but the food was not the best: aubergine salad was bland (no salt, no pepper), surprisingly, the greek salad was not very good because of the feta that didn't taste like feta; The only thing I liked was the tzatziki, the wine and the garlic...

We went here the last 3 lunchtimes in a row of our holiday after discovering it, the food is excellent and reasonably priced and the staff are very efficient and friendly. They bake mushroom and chicken pies which you can take away and we took 1 of each to the airport rather than pay the rip off prices for food... More
