Correct pronunciation of Koutouloufari

Hi Guys

Am new to this so can you please advise the correct way to pronounce the name of the village?

also any tips in regards to the place would be most appreciated - we will be staying at the Astra apartments in August 2016.

We will be celebrating our wedding anniversary whilst over there so any tips for a romantic meal location would be great as well

Cheers

Jason

Had to think a bit on that one,but the locals seem to say it as Koo-too-la-far-e.but i have often heard it said as koot-la-far-e,mainly by us Brits.

As regards a romantic meal location in the villages your spoilt for choice,but our favourite taverna/restaurant the past couple of years has been the Rouga tou mpaoula.Which from next year will have a larger seating area to the rear for the great views out across the bay below,it really is special,excellent food that's that bit differnt from the usual,excellent genuine friendly service and the prices are very fair.

Thanks for that Aegeanrider

We normally go to Kos and the resort of Kefalos which is another small resort so we are hoping to experience the same sort of welcome (although of course we wont get the friends welcome that we get there for this first visit)

Hi

There is a restaurant in the middle of the resort of Hersonissos. I just can't remember the name, It must be just around the corner of that big wall on the right of this point of view: https://www.instantstreetview.com/@35.318331,25.391859,68.06h,-1.77p,2.32z

To make myself clear I haven't tried the food but the place for your occasion looks great. You walk a couple of stairs to get to sea level on a cement ground. It has white tableclothes and on the chairs. It is very romantic.

The food in the area downtown Hersonissos is nothing special. Better try the ones on Koutouloufari and Piskopiano.

One more vote from me too for the Rouga tou mpaoula at Piskopiano. It has just a couple of tables on the balcony at the rear side of the taverna, so I suppose you might want to book that table in advance. The view is just great from there.

Great food, and a such a large variety of deserts to choose free of charge at the end.

One more idea is to have an evening drink at Kahloua at the end of the beachfront.

Good question re the pronunciation and I have heard it pronounced in many ways. My vote goes for 'AegeanRider' above, but I wouldn't discount 'Scaffolder's effort either - I have heard both!

Many good restaurants & tavernas up in the villages would fit the bill for your special meal. Have a look at Galini Restaurant in Koutouloufari as an option.
