Description: Koukoumavlos Fine Dining Restaurant was established in 1989 in Santorini, by Chef Nikos Pouliasis. Through the years it was acclaimed as one of the best gourmet restaurants in Greece and is awarded with Torque d’Or every year. The dinning hall impresses with its elegant Art Deco style. It exudes a baroque essence. From the terrace guests enjoy amazing vistas of the Santorini volcano and the impressive caldera. Nikos Pouliasis is famous for his artistry with food and his ability to reinvent himself. He invites fine dining lovers on extraordinary gastronomic journeys. He is a fun of creativity, change, spontaneity but also perfectionism and precision. His food is evolutionary and he always finds numerous ways to explore flavors and ingredients so as to create exciting, highly original, dishes.

“Decent but not worth the price ”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is referenced by both Rick Steves and Lonely Planet so we made a dinner reservation. If it's all about a view for you, request a patio table near the edge and you won't be disappointed. The risotto with smoked feta - excellent. It's listed as a started but could be a main dish if you wanted a lighter meal. We had beef and lamb as one main and rib eye as the other. Pretty mediocre for the cost. Spent $140 euro which felt overpriced relative to other meals we has at similar restaurants in Santorini.

“Culinary experience”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

It was out 3rd visit over the last couple summers. It never fails to amaze us. We took the tasting menu prepared to celebrate 25 yrs and all I can say is that it was a culinary experience.

“Very nice restaurant, but slightly below expectations fortis name”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

It was a very nice restaurant, with excellent service (we were not left without water or wine in our glasses not even for a second), but it was below my expectations, considering that this is a restaurant awarded from the Greek dining awards. Some plates were very good, some nothing special. Still it is worth to taste as the chef makes some unique combinations

“Terrific View and Great Tastes”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Choiciest disches presented with great taste. Loved the decor of hotel. The welcome from staff guest was of highest order and when we felt cold on terrace they even provided blankets.

It is a classy very selective hotel for high class dining. Limited Menu High price. Not recommended for daily food.

Must in SANTORINI if you enjoy experimenting in your food and if presentation plays an important role along with taste in your dishes and not quantity!!
