Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful spot. The tuna steak whilst well grilled was salted so heavily it was barely edible. The rest of the meal ok but lacking freshness. All very average at unaverage prices.

I ate here twice for lunch during the first week of September. Koumbara Beach is really nice and cosy, and I also liked the restaurant very much.

Nice food but quite expensive. We had grilled octopus which cost 20 euro and it came in a size of a starter plate. Some dishes were overpriced. Nice place tho with nice view

Absolutely delighted with my experience at this charming Greek restaurant by the beach! From the moment I stepped in, I was transported to a Mediterranean paradise. The ambiance was enchanting, with the soothing sound of waves and a gentle sea breeze setting the perfect mood....The menu was a delightful journey through authentic Greek flavors. The freshness of the ingredients was evident in every dish. The grilled octopus was tender and bursting with flavor, while the seafood was a true masterpiece, showcasing a variety of perfectly cooked seafood. The service was impeccable, with the staff being attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. They went above and beyond to ensure that my dining experience was exceptional. The highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the sunset view. As I savored my dessert, the sky transformed into a canvas of vibrant colors, casting a magical spell over the entire place. In every aspect, this Greek restaurant captured the essence of Greece's culinary and coastal charm. A visit here is not just a meal; it's a complete sensory journey that leaves you with memories to cherish. Without a doubt, I will be returning to relive this exquisite experience again and again.More

We visit Ios every year and every time we decide to give another chance to this place but this time enough is enough. There is literally zero respect to the customers from the owner of the restaurant. Leaving you waiting for 20 minutes just to...show you to your table (we always go with a reservation) and taking forever to take your order. But this is not the worst part. After more or less 10 pm the owner is usually extra rude as she decides she wants to turn the place to a club, turning the music so loud that one not only cannot eat or speak, but cannot even bare as the sound hurts your ears (please note to that that we are working to the concerts industry so it is exaggerating to these comments!). When asked politely by customers (and they are a lot complaining) to turn the volume down she gets mad, starts swearing and deliberately raising the volume and dances around. Of course she expects you to eat in her own terms and pay her! Two days ago we visited again (in the concept of giving another chance) and the situation was so bad that our 6 years old kid starting crying from the music volume as her ears were hurting. I politely asked her to respect at least the kid and turn the volume down a bit so that we can eat and leave. She refused saying “that a kid will not define the way she handles her business” resulting in forcing us to leave without finishing our food with a scared, crying child. Add to this the bad service and the medium food. By far the worst experience and the worse attitude we have ever experienced in the restaurants’ business.More

The first time we went to Koumpara was while we were on the beach. My partner went in to order a coffee and he found that the staff was rude when he asks for directions of where to go. The second time was when we...went to dine after being recommended by the hotel we were staying. The service was slightly better that time around but not excellent. We also wished that the waiter would have been more enthusiastic and explain the fish of the day by kg and let us know the prices. I ended up paying £45 for my fish. The food was lovely though overall. The location is fantastic with the most amazing view. Especially when the sun sets at 8:34 and you can enjoy it on the spot.More
