Good variety of fresh fish. They go fishing themselves every day. Red snapper - 50Euros per kilo. Lobsters - 55Euros.

“Best Meal all Holiday”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Brilliant food. Had a lovely lunch here and despite being full could not stop eating! Tried a few appetisers as suggested by the waiter/owner and they were much more tasty than similar traditional greek fare we'd had elsewhere. Main courses were also excellent - lovely fresh sea bass and tender beef for boyfriend. Reasonable prices too.

“Simply the best in Pylos”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

We had a meal pretty much every evening of our 5 day stay in Pylos in Koukos. This is a family run restaurant that simply meets perfection. The food is amazing and the hosts are very friendly offering superb service. It does get busy however which might explain why one or two people gave negative reviews. The family is using simple, really good local ingredients and recipes passed to them over many generations of really excellent cooks. You have to try the oily dishes in Koukos as well as their souvlaki and their fish. The fish is super fresh and cooked to perfection. Crispy outside, really tender inside full of lovely olive oil and local lemons. From the oily dishes please try the black eyed peas with greens, the courgette, aubergine and potato strapatsada (that is very special) and the salads. Overall you will fall in love with their food once you go once there. And don't forget be adventurous with the food and ask help from the waiters. As for the wine just choose any from their menu is simply the best.

“Not worth it!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

We went there as the critics were excellent. I didnt undertand the fuss because it is a mediocre restaurant. The service was slow and the taste nothing special. The only goo thing was souvlaki, but u can find it everywhere!

“Great Night!”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

The food, wine and service were all excellent and the cost almost unbelievably low. This combined with a wonderful setting made this a night to be remembered. We had mixed 'Mezzo' shared for starters followed by a variety of fish and meat. The red and white wines were so good we bought his entire remaining stock of both to restock the boat. The bill was less than €30 per head including tip.
