We think this place beats all the others on the main strip of Agia Marina. Its situated off the main road on a small hill if we can call it a hill.
Its freshly prepared food not knorr sauce thrown on a fillet.
The owner a lovely guy knows his job. Great service.
The lamb was succulent and my wifes pork with cretan pasta was just excellent.
Well as usual we discovered this place at the end of our holiday.
But those going to agia marina this is the place to go to.
Lovely setting in a garden.
Even the toilet has been thoughtfullly planned.
COMPLIMENTARY dessert and sweet wine to end the meal.
5 stars from us.

I chose Kouroupis thanks to Tripadvisor and I have been extremely happy. The place is not so easy to find but this makes a special location, quite with olive trees all around. The staff is really nice, they speak a very good English and they advised us the best dishes for our table (made of four adults, two teenagers and three children). We noticed that most of the other guests were Greek. We had 9 appetizers and they were all very interesting (chicken with an excellent souce among all) and then 9 main courses (pork on the oven the best one) + 2 bottles of wine and water + fruit and we spent less than 20€ each. A really nice and relaxing evening, thanks Mr Kouroupis !

Super! We visited this place in our last night and everyone agreed that it is our best food experience. I truly suggest to walk away 150 m from the main street and visit this place.

Overall the waiters and shopkeepers tend to have a kind of rude and careless way to serve in Crete, but in Kouroupis we really felt we were most welcome!! The owner hisself was serving us and he was really a professional! The place is a bit hard to find suddenly and maybe that is why it has had the opportunity to maintain its traditionality. The eating area is situated outside and the food came faster than in any other restaurant we have tried in Crete. Food was also great!

We were one week in Agia Marina and the first six dinners we ate in different places. On the last night we decided to eat again in the restaurant, which we felt best. The choice was self-evident without real rivalry: Kouroupis!

I think everything was just perfect in this place... It's a bit off from the main street, so it's really peaceful in the restaurant (no noise from the street or beach, or nearby bars...). The tables are put loosely in small clusters, so probably you don't feel too crowded even if the place was full. From some tables you can even see the sunset.

The staff was really friendly without being too pushy. And what's the most important thing, the food was excellent. The best moussaka I have ever eaten... great bread for starters (so good that we ordered them again on the second time)... great souvlaki and other meat portions... You was also able to order cooked vegetables or fresh salad as side dish instead of dull french fries... This was the Greek food as its best!!

If I ever go to Agia Marina again, I hope Kouroupis is still around...
