The promise of a garden could be difficult to keep in barren Kastellorizo. Especially on the only busy spot: the main harbor. But Damien, owner and gracious host, created a real space of green and peace. Food is first quality result of passion for perfection in the selection of ingredients (try honey from Crete) and traditional cooking (with a touch... More

The place is idilic! And the food is great! Ask for the keftedes vegetarian, that Mr. Damian, the owner, does. They are heaven! Monika, the other owner is so kind and sweet!

A lovely German couple do run this restaurant. It's not on the qui, but 50m inland. We got a delicious lamb and the service was good as well.

if you are staying in Kastellorizo and have had your fill of the generic Greek food on the harbour entrance which is great but a much of a muchness after a few days then Olive Garden is a refreshing change. Tucked just behind the main harbour by the supermarket it has beautiful home cooked meals which are tasty and well... More

We looked for this place in Lardos , Rhodes and used the map to locate it - the place had signs that it was once a taverna but is no longer operating - probably suffered at the hands of the local fully inclusive hotels no doubt - so in summary don't waste your time trying to find this place in...

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. 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
