A word from Koutouki Taverna
Koutouki Taverna is a family-run Greek restaurant offering up authentic Greek food and a lively atmosphere. We use nothing but the freshest ingredients in our recipes, that are homemade in house daily. The decor is comfortable,welcoming, and resembles a quaint taverna one might stumble upon when travelling the Greek isles. However, on Fridays and Saturdays when the sun goes down, the energy goes up. Bellydancing, plate smashing, and Zorba dancing make for an exciting and memorable dining experience.
**As of April 1, 2012 Koutouki will have a No Minor Policy on Friday and Saturday Evenings.**

Diner Reviews
  • "We popped for the "Mezes" experience where we got to sample from the entire menu - delightful series of plates, all presented quickly at table, piping hot and full of flavour and goodness. We really enjoyed ourselves."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Always the best - always consistent! If you have not had the greek potatos or griled octopus from here you are missing out on an Edmonton treasure. Thursday night was quick service and great food right before the show at the Roxy!"

  • "We chose Koutouki's for my wife's birthday on a friday night , we could not get the meal we order because they where out of beef at 6:45 pm so we ordered chicken and it was over cooked and dry overall a waste of time for a special night."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "A group of us went have the item called "meze" on the menu. it is tasty as always with 12 different items. The wine was very nice choose for the whole meal. Watching the belly dancer was a lot of fun. It is a place that I would recommend to any one wanting a true Greek food experience."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "My 3 friends and I went to Koutouki Taverna on a Saturday night. We all chose the "Meze" meal from their menu, which is like having several menu items, tapas style. The dishes are served with a generous pause between each of them to allow time for the food to settle before the next dish. We were also treated to a performance by a belly dancer. It was wonderful, but the music was very loud during her performance and it became difficult to carry on a conversation. On the down side were the small and uncomfortable chairs. A small pillow can be requested, but we found that the chairs remained uncomfortable for all of us. Aside from the chairs, we had a wonderful experience at Koutouki Taverna and would definitely recommend it to everyone!"

  • "Koutouki Tavern is a favorite place of ours. We love going there for supper with friends. They have great service, a wonderful atmosphere and amazing food! Never a disappointment!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We dined here with friends of ours, so there were four in our party. We all had the meze and it was excellent. The food came out at great pace and we spent 3 hours visiting, eating and enjoying ourselves. I definitely recommend this if you are out with one person, or a group. It's a great atmosphere and the food is amazing! Plus, we are all big eaters and we were all full from the meze."

  • "Have been going to Koutouki's for a long time. Miss the 170th Street location but it wasn't very accessible and I can see why it has gone. The 124th Street location is fine but the parking is very limited. The food as always was wonderful. There was a group of three of us on this night. We ordered the dolmades, spanakopita, greek salad and ribs. The portions were so large that we did not have any room for dessert. The food here is always consistently good and the service is wonderful."

  • "Booked through Open Table - we were given a very squishy table towards the bar and bathroom. Looked like open tables in next room. Probably didn't have any benefit booking a head of time."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Warm friendly atmosphere, good service and a good selection of appetizers - just what we were looking for! Only negative was in getting our bill as a large number of guests had just arrived. Our window seat was nice, but a little chilly beside the window. We will be back!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Positives - The food was very good. Service was quick and consistent despite being short staffed (according to our waitress). Ambience/style seems like what you would expect in Greece. Negatives - No parking lot of their own. Not a lot of privacy as tables are close. Flying bugs around the hanging plants. Tables & chairs for seating of two were small with wicker chairs. Overall the environment seems better suited to summer dining. If you are craving Greek food it is a worthwhile option as the food was good."

  • "This place is fantastic every time we visit. I bring my staff here for Christmas Parties, family birthdays, anniversaries and just a night with friends. The food is always mouth watering , our favorite is thr meza, each time offers a little different flavor. Friday and SaturdayIis the best nights if you wang a little extra entertainment as they have the belly dancers, opa lines and the breaking of dishes. All by a candle light atmosphere. If you love greek , this is the place !"

  • "Koutouki is an amazing restaurant that consistently puts out fabulous food. The calamari is by far the best in the city. I love the character and great people this restaurant brings to our great city at this specific location."

  • "A mid - week group of 8 for a 7pm reservation. The greeting and seating was exceptional. Service was attentive without being overbearing. The group shared a variety of starters, and a variety of meals were ordered. The lamb skewers were a little on the salty side, but were fully consumed with no problem. The roast lamb (ordered at the recomendation of our server) was salty beyond being edible. This was communicated to the server. We were thanked for passing on the information, but no efforts were made to rectify the situation. Deleting the meal from the bill would be my choice as to how the staff should have handled the matter. Failure to do so leaves me contemplating a different location the next time our group goes out."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "We ordered the sampler meal for two and it was very good, but we found the individual dishes came out too fast and we felt rushed. We did express this to our waitress and things were slowed down and we were then able to enjoy our meal at a relaxing pace. Thank you."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "The food was amazing! We had a great time. However, the belly dancer left right as we arrived for our 8:30 reservation on a Saturday. Part of the reason we chose this place for for the whole cultural experience, so we were a little disappointed."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "This is my favourite restaurant in town. The food is always great, the service always great. Sometimes actually, the service is a little too quick, you don't always get time to unwind and get settled before the food arrives. Small price to pay for such consistency. The room does get a little loud on Friday and Saturday nights because they have belly dancers, so if you're wanting to talk you need to go early."

  • "I've been to Koutouki's many many times over the years but had not visited for a year or so. I was delighted to find the food is just as good as it ever was. Freshly prepared, beautifully presented and delicious. It's a casual place with friendly, personal service. The atmosphere is fun and warm. A great place to enjoy a Greek feast and forget about winter! (and the roasted potatoes... oh so good!)"

  • "Koutouki is my all time favorite dining establishment. I can always expect the best in food,service and atmosphere. If I have guests I am always excited to have them experience the best in Greek food at Koutouki!Opa!!!!!!!!"

  • "What a wonderful place to spend a birthday with friends. We reserved for 6pm and ordered the Meze! Perfect time of the evening as honestly the food started with in 10 minutes of us being seated. It truly is the way to go with a group and it is true what the menu says -- you won't be able to eat it all!!! 6pm was perfect for us as it was quiet enough for 4 of us to have a conversation, by 7pm the music started to roll and the conversations in the restaurant became more lively. So if you want a lively experience go later, if you want a quieter gathering reserve like we did! Can't go wrong."

  • "Dinner was awesome ....and great value .... 3 of us ordered 5 appies to share and we didn't manage to eat it all. Weekends rock here!!!"

  • "Dined early (5pm on a Saturday) with a friend on this occasion, and it was usual perfection. We ordered several Mezethes and had a generous to go box. Saganaki is a MUST try for cheese lovers. Service was great too."

  • "Was not too busy, waiter was great, food was excellent, 1 item cold, food was out quickly,"
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "We love the atmosphere the service and the consistently excellent Greek food. We love the lamb souvlaki dish so much that this is what we usually have. Many of the meze dishes are to die for with the most notable being the calamari. We always think of this restaurant for a special occasion. We are hooked!"

  • "Have not been to Koutouki's for a while because they closed the west end one but had time to stop by for lunch. Forgot how down home and friendly this place was. Waitress wasn't so rushed that she had time to talk to us and explain the menu. Food was as I remembered it - great. We chose this as a Christmas lunch place for 4 of our staff and it was superb. Good food, good atmosphere, quiet, warm and friendly."
    Dined on 12/17/2013
  • "The service was not good. The timing of the food was terrible and it took 10 minutes before anyone even came to our table initially. I ordered a salad and appetizer as my meal, which I clearly stated when I ordered, and it came out entirely when everyone else got their salad. I ate so it wouldn't get cold but was finished before anyone even got their meals. And on top of that there were hardly any other tables in the restaurant so it's not like it was so busy that the table would be tough to manage. The entire meal was poor timing and the server wasn't there when we needed. I won't be recommending this place to others. The food itself was good though."

  • "The preparation and portion sizes have changed recently at Koutouki Taverna. The quality and preparation seems to change not only visit to visit but even during the same visit, the portion sizes have become smaller the Keftedes for one are smaller in size and the chicken livers normally enough for four people was only large enough for two."

The dessert and dessert wine (coffee & wine mixture) was extremely enjoyable. The service was impeccable. Our waiter was extremely efficient at his job. The overall experience was a very delightful one. I would definitely return to this restaurant as well as recommend it to everyone I know."

  • "My sister and I enjoyed this place so much. Another Greek restaurant we used to visit often closed it doors and we needed to find a new place that made authentic Greek ribs as good as theirs were, and we found it. The place was energetic, and fun and loved the belly dancer. The only complaint i have is the lady who came around with water too often. She became annoying. My sister has to eat gluten free, and the Greek ribs with rice and roasted potatoes were a perfect choice. We will definitely be going back to this place and invite friends and family with us next time."

  • "This is a wonderful place. Amazing atmosphere, it's cozy, quant, lively on the weekends, with a belly dancer, great music, fun times. The food is amazing!!! Would rightly recommend this place to anyone. They do large groups as well. Wonderful service, you are waited on by all the staff, they make sure you are well looked after. Love this place!!!"

  • "Our evening was casual so the four of us decided on just appetizers - our waitress was helpful with explaining the different dishes and what would go together. The 8 dishes came out perfectly timed over the course of the evening and piping hot and we enjoyed every bite. Great place with delicious food !!"

  • "As always Koutouki was fantastic! I highly recommend doing the mesa as you get the most for your money (but add the saganaki since it’s not included). We had friends from out of town with us and they loved the experience. I’m sure next time they are here we will be bringing them again."
