We wanted somewhere different to dine at away from the commercialised sea front area. So a walk up the hill to Koutouloufari was agreed. Well worth the walk. Whilst the area is still a tourist location, it wasn’t as hectic & has quaint feel about...More

Response from Paladar2014 | Reviewed this property |
I would recommend to take a taxi from Anissaras Beach as the restaurant it's located in Kouloutufari, which means after Chersonissos center up in the hills. With taxi you will reach it in 10 minutes for approx. 10-12 Euros.
