Mediterranean
Kokkari (pronounced “Ko-Kar-ee”) is a small fishing village located on the islands of Samos in the Aegean Sea, whose name is derived from the small onions that were once produced in the nearby fields. Its fertile soil and Mediterranean climate translated into an abundance of fresh produce as well as treasured seafood and game. Legend tells that Kokkari is the site where Orion, a mighty hunter and a young man of gigantic stature and great beauty, fell in love with the daughter of the king of Chios. For the love of her, Orion forged the island for wild game and seafood to prepare elaborate banquets in celebration of their love. Today, we hope you will enjoy your own celebration as you dine at Kokkari Estiatorio on food “fit for the Gods” prepared with an Aegean palate and the style of innovative California fare.

    Beautiful restaurant in a great area. Food and service were excellent. For appetizers we had the spicy shrimp and flatbread with figs, sauteed onions and goat cheese. For the main course we had the whole fish and the lamb skewer special. Eveything was outstanding. Great cocktails and wine list. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    The whole fish (petrale sole) was perfectly salted in olive oil, a”wow” dish. The two starters that we had (octopus & esparagus) were sensational as was the donut holes for dessert. Service was impeccable! A great lunch experience!

    A lot of restaurants have a few items that leap of the page as wanting to try and after doing so, you arent as inclined to return because you've in essence 'been there, done that'. At Kokkari, almost all of them sounded mouth watering so the 4 of us decided we'll go with mostly appetizers and a couple of mains to take in all the flavors - 7 dishes total. They we're all exceptional and we didnt even get 1/3 of the way through all the dishes we wanted to try. We'll be back...., many more times to come.
