A great small taverna with cosy atmosphere and good Greek food. A family run place not in the center of Pigadia but not too far away. The raki with cinnamon was great. I wish I could get the recipe :)

Kartanthos is not a culinary Mecca and good restaurants are hard to find. Most of the restaurants in the harbor have standard and average greak food and the fish was previously frozen. This is a little taverna, tacked away on a small street with most of the tables in a small patio. The menu is limited but the fish is... More

A well located restaurant just off the main road close to Pigadia town. Limited menu but it doesn't matter as the Orata is superb. Father also cooks lovely souvlakia on the outside BBQ. Friendly service from the owners. Worth a visit as an alternative to the main centre.

After meal you will have... More

Having had many excellent meals at this restaurant over a period of several years, we want to recommend it to fellow travellers. Kali Kardia is situated in a quiet street a bit away from the busiest tourist area around the harbour and shopping streets, but still near the hotels along the main road along the town beach. This is a... More

Kali Kardia became our choice for dinner only one evening, and the reason for this is that it was nothing out of the ordinary. When we ordered, many items on the menu was unavailable, so our choices were limited. We eventually had seafood souvlaki and stifado, which was tasty and homemade. The restaurant was busy, and we were not asked... More
