Flavored with originality, the meal presented by the chef gave us savors to remember beyond the moments of our unusual, healthful, and delightful meal. Kuzina is a fish restaurant with a relaxed but well-chosen setting and plenty of options -- many possible fish to order, and delicious options from the land. We chose the latter: a vegetarian menu and leg... More

This place is hard to find in the hidden streets but is worth it! The fish food was fantastic and the wine just superb. The price was very good for the food quality. The plates are typical french small dishes but the quality of the food was excellent. The wine selection was very good and the one I ordered white... More

We had a business dinner there. Wasn't that convinced about the greek food we had. Even of we were a big group, food wasn't that good, portion per person was ridiculous and the service wasn't that professional and friendly with us.

Owned by the same Jean-Pierre Xiradakis as La Tupina. The fish offering is second to none, so is the wine list. You choose your fish from the bank and it is cooked to your liking.

Stopped here for a late supper, around 2145. There were still people arriving so a nice buzz. We went for the 'evening plate', calamari, a filet of sturgeon and a dessert for €27. Really good value for money. We had a great rose for €13 and the service was first rate. Relaxed dining at a high, communal table. The food,... More

This restaurant has a simple concept: great fish done in a "Greek" manner (simply) with simple vegetables and a Greek salad. The fish was delicious - the calamari frites were the best we've ever had: delicate and sweet with a perfectly seasoned crispy thin coating, served simply with lemon to squeeze over it. The sturgeon was exquisite, tender, fresh, juicy,... More

Pretty much exclusively fish restaurant, you pick your freshly caught fish from the ice and they cook it for you. When the fish on display gets eaten, that's it. They serve it with salad and vegetables, no potatoes or rice. The wine is good, and affordable. There is only one waitress, she speaks English and she laughed at us a... More

Very friendly service and creative preparations of fresh fish. We were a party of five and three of our group had the John Dory fish (called St. Pierre in France) and it was a hit - even with the diners who are not normally seafood fans. Limited wine list but the server let us try some that she already had... More

This is a restaurant with atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and the kitchen absolutely on the top. On the printed menu yiu wil not find the name of any fish, as the selection varies from day to day. But the options are written on a blackboard and the fresh fish is on display (on a bed of ice) in... More

Very friendly waiter/host found a place for me when restaurant was fully booked for Valentine's Day. Fresh oysters with local white wine, then hot starter with shrimps/cheese/tomatoes made me really happy. Next time I'll try their fish second courses!
