Soups and Gyros's

I was there on 8/5/2015 for lunch. The Chicken lemon soup and also the Lentil soup were very good. I had the Gyro and my wife had the sausage and beef platter. Although these dishes were very tasty the meat was dry as if they reheated it on the grill. I ate Gyro's at other Greek places the meat... read more

As this was the only restaurant situated in close proximity to one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, Apella, we thought we would give it a try. The lady serving us was very polite and helpful. The food came very quickly which was surprising considering the number of customers. In hindsight, this probably was because everything was preprepared. The... More

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.

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.
