We caught Olive Garden at the end of the season just before they closed and I'm so glad we did. Nestled in a little square just off the harbour front, it's set apart from the tavernas on the waterfront but well worth seeking out. The menu is also a little different from the standard taverna. Damien adds his own flourishes... More

Feta cheese baked in honey and sesame seeds, baked lamb and potatoes stew, moussaka, green beans cooked in garlic and butter, aubergine dishes,sweet sticky puddings, carafe's of house wine - my only complaint is that I ate and drank far too much, but the atmosphere, owners and soft warm breeze added to a wonderful night.

We spent our second stay at Pension Caretta and are very satisfied with the services and also Olive Garden. We had breakfast, coffee and dinner there and it was always excellent. Damien and Monika are very helpful before and during the stay with all kind of advices and services. Olive Garden isn't right on the harbour so it is calm... More

My wife and I got married on Kastellorizo in 2013 and had our reception at the Olive Garden. Before making that decision, we had tried the Olive Garden as 'routine diners' and found the food to be very good and value for money, which can sadly be a bit hit and miss on Kastellorizo. The service was what you'd hope... More

Had an evening meal here deciding to try a restaurant off the sea front for a change. This is a rather scruffy little place with a real character to it that attracts a mixed audience. The german owners were very welcoming providing a refreshing level of customer engagement sadly lacking from many restaurants in Kastelorizo. The owners know exactly when... More

We stayed in Pension Careta which is a set of rooms owned by Monica and Damien as well as their restaurant the Olive Garden. Immaculately clean. The owners were really welcoming - nothing was too much trouble for them. The food at the Olive Garden (which is set back slightly from the waterfront and which was shaded by vines so... More

The owners might be the nicest people you will meet while traveling : accommodating, open, helpful. Location is off the water, but quieter and the food excellent and frankly, UNDERpriced. Many meals there, suggest you do as well. There's even a group of couches where you can check your internet (free) and have a drink without a meal.
