After the success of the first location in Singapore, the owners of Blu Kouzina opened this one in Sarasota, Florida. With a beach theme, open kitchen and decor in whites and blues, it fits right in with the Sunshine State. Dine in the relaxed dining room or enjoy your meal on the outdoor patio at Blu Kouzina.
The menu is full of authentic dishes from the owners' native Greece. All dishes are made with locally sourced fresh ingredients. The quaint restaurant is popular so reservations are a great idea. The friendly and attentive staff will be glad to help you choose from all the amazing menu options. Start with some warm Greek bread. The lamb chops are a popular dish with regular customers and come with fresh vegetables. No meal at Blu Kouzina is complete without some baklava for dessert.

Fantastic as always!
We so very much enjoyed our evening at Blu Kouzina! Dinner was fantastic!!! Highly recommend if you are looking for genuine Greek dining! Staff and service impeccable!
The green beans were much bette than the fried thing now served with fish. Please bring back the staphylus xinomavro
We were seated immediately. Water and bread served. Waiter never came to table. We had to afk hostess for drinks
Waiter took order. NEVER came back
Someone else served fish. We had to ask to have table cleaned and has to ask someone for coffee
People at next table sat down and waiter was all over them Had to grab him for check
Worst service I have ever had there
Last week I was there. Did not book on open table and ate outside. Service and food was fabulous
Waiter must have thought we were tourists
We live here and have enjoyed your resturant for years
Always consistently outstanding and a great night out!
Great octopus, service and I love your new chardonnay... Athena.
The food was very good. In particular, the fish rated like it had just been caught. It was simply grilled with a little olive oil and lemon and it was delicious. The server was very attentive and the whole experience was very enjoyable.
Great service by the 28 year old Colombian . Great food and great Greek wine
The food was outstanding. My new favourite restaurant!
Rolls were not an appealing start, why not serve pita bread?
My cocktail was not very good. Food was better but it was not a great beginning.
Always love dining here~
The pre dinner roll was a rock, the souvlaki was what I can buy at Publix but here it was $20. The service was slow and noise level like a jet engine. Never again
Such a lovely atmosphere and Everything on the menu is delicious. The waitstaff all are so friendly, we look forward to a return visit soon!
I walked into an empty restaurant WITH A RESERVATION and was offered the noisy table closest to the kitchen. That’s insulting. I also noticed that after I refused it, it was not offered to the next 5 couples who came into the restaurant.
Teach the hostess, please.
We enjoyed for the most part. They grill shrimp dinner is very underwhelming. $21 for one (1) shrimp. It was large, but not at all flavourful. Just pass. Other items were very good. The Horiatiki salad was one of the best I have ever had! Staff are OK. Pleasant but very busy talking to eat other rather than being focused on customers. In the Circle (St. Armand’s) the food doesn’t need to be top notch for restaurants to be successful... high demand.
The food options are so fresh and delicious!
Although the pastichio was delicious and presented well ; and the Greek salad fresh; the humuus was very ordinary and stuffed grape leaves tasted like they were made made several days ago. Rice pudding was Ok but the baklava was below expectations and pricey.Quite disappointed. Atmosphere was very attractive. Service was good, though. Greek coffee service was nice. Was expecting better than what we experienced after having been not only to the Greek Isles but Milos in NY which is our favorite Greek restaurant with a much better value. Princeton’s casual Local Greek restaurant which is similar has much better food.
We decided to have a day trip to Sarasota (we live in Naples). We decided to split everything family style (between 5 people). Every since item we had was outstanding! We ordered : beet & apple salad special, spanakopita, Greek salad, fried artichokes, lemon chicken, octopus, scallops special, lamb kabob. Literally every single thing we had was amazing. We plan on coming back soon to do another staycation. Definitely recommend!
Excellent Greek food. We had the Giant Beans which were tasty and cooked perfectly, the Blu Salad and a delicious Yellow Lentil Dip with pita bread. We also shared a Stuffed Roast Vegetables dish that was really tasty. Highly recommend if you are in the area
Lunch meal. Very limited menu. Adequate quality and quantity but not exciting
Good food inconsistent portion size, I had the genie moussaka and it was half the size of the regular moussaka and more expensive
Fabulous as always!!!
We had a good meal and pleasant experience at this restaurant after a bit of a rocky start, mostly because the very frazzled hostess was over-extended with large groups of walk-ins and didn't have the bandwidth to also handle those of us with reservations. However, after a short wait, we were seated and from then on all went smoothly. We each had branzino, grilled and deboned, which was delicious, along with a great bottle of a Greek red wine and a large (enough to share) classic Greek salad. It is a bit noisy inside, however, especially with big groups, so we were glad to be on the covered patio, which was a bit quieter. The service was prompt and helpful once we settled in. Definitely recommended.
Delicious find! Excellent authentic Greek food on St Armand’s Circle!
Everything was wonderful. I would just say that the horitiki salad needed some additonal tomatoes and the sea bream was a little over cooked.. But the rest of the food, octopus, calamari, lamb chops, chicken skewers were perfect.
Great lamb chops and outstanding fresh fish. One of the more enjoyable restaurants in Sarasota. Loved the Blu Salad and can’t say enough about the great service. Would recommend this spot to anyone who enjoys fine food and great Greek wine list
Excellent, great environment
Love the fresh fish brought to your table for choosing and then boning, skinning and cooking it any way I like. Salad, vegetables and rice or potatoes make a delicious meal. I love eating here. We were here for Valentine's dinner this past Friday night.
Excellent place, with consistently good food. Price are still moderate, even though they are slowly increasing
The food was amazing. My husband said it was the best Moussaka he’s ever had. My grilled chicken kabobs were tender and deliciously seasoned. Will return again!
We always enjoy the excellent fresh ingredients and friendly staff at one of our favorite restaurants in Sarasota.
Great attentive service, pretty restaurant. Delicious classic dishes
Had fun and all were pleasant
We enjoyed very much this restaurant even if it is a bit expensive.
Wonderful fresh tasty food, the best salads and grilled octopus. Can't wait to return.
The food was delicious!!!! So excited BK is back to how it was in terms of food quality!!!
Food is consistently excellent, especially the lamb and fish dishes. Service is always good. One of the really good restaurants in Sarasota.
This is my third time at this restaurant . Such s pretty spot on St Armand’s . We were hoping the food would match ambiance. Biggest problem is consistency and quality of food coming out of kitchen.
Greek salads are delicious but 2 of the 4 entrees had to be returned due to
Poor quality and food preparation . Not what we hoped for and expensive relative to quality
Very happy with meal
