Visited here twice in our 7 night trip. This place is so good, the food, the service, the value and atmosphere are quite superb. Visiting pre 815 you should get it without a booking, any later you need to book. Complimentary raki, cake and fruit too the meal quite nicely

Whether you are looking for traditional Greek food or a fresh take on Greek food this is a great stop for lunch or dinner. The staff are energetic, friendly and knowledgeable and the food is fresh.

When you enter this restaurant they give you a very warm welcome. The staff takes the time to get to know you and jokes around to create a relaxed atmosphere. All servers were lovely guys. The food was delicious and so were the drinks! Especially the homemade sangria and moussaka. We’ve eaten here the whole week. And the lovely people that run this restaurant really made us feel like a part of their beautifull family, which got +1 member this week . After we finished out diners we moved to the bar where we had many, many drinks. Thankyou so so so much my lovely friends Costas & Micheal ❤️ I’ll never forget you !

Been coming to Koutouloufari for a few years. Used to go to the Alchemist at the old place. Mamma and two boys running it. Been today and Kostas recognised me from a few years back. Mamma still over seeing the restaurant. Food still fantastic. Love the place

Saw the good reviews and had heard lots of people talking about it so had to visit. Was so impressed that we went twice on our holiday. Staff all friendly and food delicious. Gave us complimentary amuse bouche and dessert that was orange pie with raki and it was delicious! Orange pie was homemade. Had a really good time here. Can’t recommend enough!
