Description: At Koutouloufari in Hersonissos, in this beautiful traditional village, the Alchemist awaits you. Stone, wood, light, and a green scenery blend to form a casual decor. Enjoy selected dishes of the Cretan cuisine. Grilled meat, a wide variety of appetizers, fresh seafood, and sophisticated cocktails. Taste the beef stew or the lamb. Complement your meal with cold beer or Cretan wine. Finally try a homemade dessert. Human smiles will fulfill the integrity of the site and the excellence of flavors.

This place recommended by a friend, you have to make a reservation as its full every night, I had the kleftiko in the paper bag which was gorgeous, the brothers are hilarious, Costas and Michael, very welcoming, we ended up there every night, as well as your drinks they constantly make concoctions which are passed around in shot glasses, this place is a little gem and had so many laughs there, yamas costas!!!

Managed to get table without booking. I think we were extremely lucky, as place was very busy when we left!!
Good hosts. The brothers were very funny, looked after us during the meal. Food was very good, and the cake before the bill a welcome surprise!
