Such a nice place! We stopped by just for coffee but ended up staying for lunch as well. Home made sweets, and great iced coffee. Great service, home made and local food. Both salads and crab cakes were amazing!

Went there twice during our Karpathos trip. Very good local food, fresh fish, great service by 3 generations of the owner family. Good wine list. The port is charming and has parking. Highly recommend.

Very nice setting with descent food but be careful for what you order. We eventually had to pay over 75 euros for a small lunch. Even a couple of small ice creams for the kids are 7 euros. Poor value.

We went to this restaurant a couple of times while on the island. The first time I had the mixed seafood spaghetti and second time the freshest fish cooked perfectly. Very friendly, attentive service. Very enjoyable!
