Unfortunately the only restaurant at Apella

We had lunch here around 2, and the place was full. The quality of the food and the service reflected this crowded space. I think you should either go there around 12 or after 3. The view was nice.

1. Food was musty a) The salad was cut from the morning. We ate in the afternoon. b) Chicken with rice was heated in the microwave and the sauce had become gel. 2. When we told to the owner our complaints, he tried to get us mad and told us that everything was fresh! 3. Rude tavern owner

Taverna is a great place to eat some meal or drink something in Apella beach. Menu is classic (sandwiches, salads, burgers, few greek dishes) but foor is well prepared and delicious.

First of all: the taverna is not located in pigadia... But: it is located upstairs the best known and really beautiful beach "Apella" on karpathos island ,Dodecanese Greece . I know that the family worked hard for building the house and paying for fixing a road down, otherwise there would be a long long walk down to the beach, thank... More

food is ok but nothing superb, charging as if it were, just because the landscape is amazing. waiters are not particularly friendly, as most of them in Karpathos. it is ok if you don't want to go to a village for a meal or if you forgot your picnic basket, otherwise they pretend too much for what it is.
