Small and friendly

Tucked away behind the front the Olive Garden is smaller than most of the restaraunts in Kastellorizo. This gives a more personal service and it is clear that the chef/owner is passionate about his food.

This gives a more personal service and it is clear that the chef/owner is passionate about his food. Some nice flavoured dishes and a good choice of bottled German beers if you fancy something different.

This was a special cafe -- with wonderful owners (Damien and Monika) -- it is a sancturary which features great drinks and food - plus the store next to the cafe has the most interesting things! Definitely you should go to this cafe if you are in kastellorizo!

Wow, what a GEM on this beautiful island! Hosts, Monica and Damien and staff, went out of their way to ensure that our son's wedding was an experience to be treasured. During our stay we ate at different times at the Olive Garden and the food and wine was fantastic at very reasonable prices. The Olive Garden's gift shop was... More

Located next to the only taxi station in the island, Olive Garden is a wonderful experience where you can eat local Greek flavors. Not only the food is great but the owner / cook is very hospitable and speaks English like his native tongue. The restaurant looks like a garden, simply but beautifully decorated, this place is one of the... More

The cost of this dinner was about 30-35 eur.

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.

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
