Year after year, Chef Nikos Pouliasis creates and presents the finest gourmet dining on Santorini in the capital of Fira...and in my humble opinion, the best dining experience on the Island.
I've been excited to explore the menu at this historic restaurant for many years now and am always incredibly delighted to see the menu evolve each year to present truly dramatic and delicious plates catered for the gourmand, at reasonable prices.
This year's new menu items include an amazing Spaghetti with cherries, coconut milk, lime, vanilla and cashews.
Another new mouth-watering and astonishing plate is the Salmon Fillet marinated in maple syrup, ginger and soya sauce accompanied with cauliflower mousse line.
Another new and dramatic plate features Santorinian tomato ball soufflé, beef fillet carpaccio
slightly smoked with organic hay, spicy local
Chloro cheese sauce, summer truffle and cherry
But I expect the new Mini Duck Burgers with grilled foie gras, truffle mustard and strawberry candies and Loukoumi will win Chef Nikos more awards, as it is award-worthy and absolutely memorable!
Niko's award-winning Scampi in white chocolate sauce remains a favourite for locals and tourists alike, with ginger, lime, golden herring caviar and green apple carpaccio and I was so pleased to devour this outstanding plate once again.
Along with the award-winning and amazingly creative plates is a location second to none on the Island.
Perched on the edge of the Santorini Caldera, the view from the Koukoumavlos balcony allows great views from every table of the world-famous Santorini sunsets.
To complete this unique and world-class dining experience is the warm, welcoming and professional service of the Koukoumavlos staff: Johanna, Daniela, Dimitrious and Anna, who take Greek hospitality to the next level and will make you feel that choosing to dine at Koukoumavlos was the best decision you made after deciding to travel to magnificent Santorini!
