This restaurant produced beatfull simple Greek food with amazing flavour it's one of the best as we visited most of the restaurant in Koutoutfari and I would put this at the top for good home cooking at a reasonable price with a lovely Greek Family. We would definitely go back to this restaurant highly recommend.

Wife is extraordinary and does all the cooking. Best potatoes you will ever taste. We all had Smooth Hound. an odd name for quite large round fish... More

Nice little place with good food, although it wasn't as good as our visit the previous year. Mix up with the wine - but hey ho it was sorted.

The owner is the fishman and his wife is the cook. Totally recommend this place. However it's not cheap, good quality comes with its cost The price is higher than the average... More

It is like coming home to visit this family run restaurant; Cleopatra as chef, Nikos as the fisherman and their daughter Silvia as the waiter and head of the restaurant. Traditional, tasty and top quality food... More
