Crossing the picturesque village of Aetofolia you end up in its beautiful square with the traditional tavern of Kounaria. In the 19th century, Counaria was the original village where the inhabitants of Aetofolia lived, while the word comes from the Italian Cuzzunaria, meaning “Xinaria” (=springs). Today in Kounaria you can choose a table in the square, on the terrace and on the balcony with the wonderful view or in the warm interior with the fireplace in the winter and enjoy authentic flavors and genuine, quality Greek cuisine.
Zofefina and Christos transformed the old family home into a traditional tavern, respecting its architectural elements, and doing what they know well! Homemade food with fresh ingredients! With the help of the whole family, they take care of their own products (louza ham, cheese, beans, artichokes, etc.), combine them in homemade, mum-like dishes and serve them with kindness and smile as if you were at home. You will taste delicious dishes made with passion such as calf stew, lemon goat, pork with sun-dried tomatoes, pies with handmade sheets, pies with tinian cheese and snacks that will accompany your raki drink and local traditional sweets!
Authenticity, love for pure tastes and affordable prices make up Kounaria’s view of gastronomy!
