Koukos was great in many different aspects; firstly you are greeted with smiles; the staff was excellent very helpful and friendly. The place was beautiful, very tastefully styled. The food was absolutely amazing, fresh ingredients and great Greek cuisine. We were sitting just near the entrance and there were street performers we got to watch them too. Highly recommend!

Koukos has a rustic traditional deco, interesting to look around. The food is delicious. I took grilled octopus, the house salad and broad beans. Nice house red wine. The service was excellent. A positive experience.

It was a nice surprise to discover this multifaceted place. Very carefully made, with a nice selection of decoration, and the food was authentic and delicious. You can even grab a sandwich from the bakery corner, or a coffee to go! Or even book a room to spend the night in the dedicated area above

Traditional Greek food done right - fresh, simple, and in large quantities. And sooooo tasty. Our party of three agreed it was hands down the best dining experience in our five weeks travelling through Europe (including France and Italy!). Value for money was exceptional.
