What more can I say? Definitely try the 'pies' which are more like fried fritters, absolutely delicious! I thought eating as a vegetarian in Greece would be difficult but I asked the waiter about veggie options and she recommended some great local dishes.

Despite visiting out of season where a lot of restaurants are empty, Koukos was packed with Greek people as well as the remaining tourists like ourselves. The first time we didn't realise that you order to the table for everyone to share rather than the individual but we soon worked it out and returned for dinner a second time. The... More
