“AMAZING”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

An amazing Greek fish tavern, located by the beach. Beautiful, although simple, white decor, very very tasty food, very friendly owners and with surprising low prices. We visited "Koumpara" tavern for the first time, an afternoon after swimming when there were few customers. The owner's wife came smiling to get our order. Everything we ate, including fresh small fish and other seafood, was perfect and so was the service. We enjoyed it very much, so we came back next day.
I think it is the best traditional fish tavern I ever visited. If you visit Ios island you should visit Koumpara tavern!

amazing place to eat - real good typical greek dishes with a flair of creativity - and great friendly owners. - outside the main season you surely come as a guest and leave as a friend.

“Incredible!!!”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

On my resent visit to Ios I was told about this restaurant by one of the local hotel owners. I found it a bit strange that this owner raved about this restaurant if the hotel has its own restaurant, so I decided to give it a try.
There is a local KTEL bus every hour to Koumpara Beach and the restaurant is at the very last stop. About 10 minutes ride from the port. However the bus originates from Mylopotas Beach.
What a beautiful setting and incredible sunset from the restaurant. I was welcomed by Maria the host a lovely lady that introduced me to the two brothers who own the restaurant. The restaurant is in fact 74 year old and belonged to their farther but has now been revamp to a really upmarket place with stunning, but tastefully and simple decor, in the Greek tradition.
But the most important thing is the prices, very cheap compared to any other restaurant on Ios and the food is twice as good. They specialise in the food of the fisherman, and I visited the restaurant on two consecutive nights, it was that good. On the second evening I invited 13 of my friends to join me and all raved about the setting, food and the prices.
Everything we ate was great but especially the Calamari, meatballs, tomato balls, Fishermans bout soup, Fresh fish. The house wine is very good.
So if you are on Ios - this place is a must.
