A word from Kouzina Bistro
Kouzina is the place to come and taste the food Greeks eat at home, the one all visitors always talk about with such love.

Get a ticket to Greece by coming to the flower decorated yard, hand designed by the owner’s vision. Travel to the majestic island of Santorini by tasting the Santorini Chicken, stuffed with the island’s sundried tomatoes. Sit with your feet at the water and a glass of white Moschofilero wine, when enjoying the Whole fish of the day caught just for you from the Aegean waters. Hike to the earth-scented mountains with Kouzina’s lamb packed with mountain oregano. Dance with a twist by licking your fingers with our Slow Roasted Pork Ribs drizzled with thyme honey from the island of Crete.

    We were greeted very warmly & offered our table promptly. Service was excellent. Food very good. We also liked the Agiorgitiko wine we had. The decor is lovely & very reminiscent of Greece. The only negative was the music. As the night progressed, it got slightly louder and very 'pop music-like.' We mentioned it to our server to pass along to mgmt, and were told some other people have complained, but being "Miami" people expect party music everywhere.... I disagree. A bar or inexpensive self-serve place, maybe. But a sit-down restaurant with pricing in the $30-$50 range should try to keep the ambience authentic and charming, with music being a huge part of setting the right "ambience."

    We were sad we couldn't sit outside because of the rain. The outside seating reminded us of a very typical restaurant in Greece and was a lovely setup. Food was good, service was great, and wine was very good. While this isn't the best Greek restaurant I've been to in South Florida, we left very fully and very satisfied.

    Was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food, the friendly service and reasonable prices at this neighborhood Greek restaurant. Although it was too hot to dine outdoors, Kouzina has a beautiful outdoor patio. Our server, Costas, was informative and friendly and every course was delicious. The spinach pie and lamb entree were standouts! Would definitely return.

    This is a really nice neighborhood place with a charming atmosphere and very tasty food. The zucchini fries are great, and I really enjoyed the lamb. The service was a little "chaotic" but the staff was friendly. Will definitely be going back!

    My family and I went to Kouzina Bistro for Fathers Day Lunch and had an incredible time. The food was spectacular, it made us feel like we were transported to Greece, the staff was friendly and attentive, and the ambiance was very European. I would absolutely go back for more hummus, and the spinach salad was to die for! There is something for everyone.

    Loved this restaurant since the first moment we stepped in... don't miss the zucchini fries, the cheeses, the entrees....and wash it all down with a wonderful bottle of Greek wine. All and all, a fun place to eat and visit. It only needs MORE Greek music to be perfect!

    We went to Kouzina on a Sunday, very slow not much going on. Service was a little off in terms of being greeted, welcomed and cared for however once were finally attended to the servcie was quite good. The food by no means is the best Greek food I have ever had. The hummus and lamb were quite good. I read so many reviews about how beautiful the outdoor space was. It is nice but people get out more often! I was expecting more from reading the reviews but I need to remember that Miami is not the Northeast and opinions and playing restaurant are miles apart. I probably will continue to find better Greek experience but by no means don't go on my account. It is a good neighborhood place. They just need to take better care of their guests.

    Loved the lamb chops. Tender, moist and cooked as ordered. Nothing more matters when you enjoy lamb chops
