“original food, bad service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2014

This restaurant offers some original local specialities, which cannot be found anywhere else in Pigadia harbour, and they are well done. The place is usually packed and is in a good location. What I didn't like here were the two owners, who didn't treat their guests in an equal manner. While almost crawling over some people, who might have been regulars, others were completely ignored and served accordingly. I had the feeling that they didn't like the idea that a tourist is fluent in Greek. What a difference to the owner of the restaurant 'Maxim', also in the harbour area.

“Food from the heart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2014

This is definitely one of the culinary gems in Pigadia - Great homemade food, authentic, fresh, generous. Try the Makarounas, Fish and other Greek Plates - All good, we liked all.

Location is amazing, on the port by the Diving center.

“Authentic and friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2014

Oreia Karpathos offers great food on a great location. Staff is very friendly. Food is authentic, very Greek without the 'extras' for tourists, and yet many tourists found their way to this good restaurant

It's quite simple, really. Best food, best service, best atmosphere. That's it and that's that.
