We spent three nights in Finiki and two of our meals were here. The first, my birthday dinner, was amazing! Lobster and linguini. I thought I was going to die. Truly delicious. They do not skimp on product and quality. Yes people, fish is expensive at island tavernas. Now that we're past that, the family running it were wonderful and accommodating. The waiters and waitresses were so very nice to us. I would go back again and again! We live in Athens.

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 had the opportunity to dine in this pleasant family driven tavern (just a few steps from the sea) for three days in June 2019. We enjoyed very good food, excellently friendly service and hospitality. We tasted octopus, red snapper, scorpionfish (local boss recipe), anchovies, dolmades, zucchini leaves, stuffed onions, tzatziki, taramosalata (a bit different than usual one, but very good), orange pie and some salads – and were very satisfied with all of it. The whole family is carefully taking care of their guests, recommending, explaining, whatever is needed. The Vasso’s home-made liqueur was just excellent! If we ever come back to Finiki (which we do hope) we will definitely make a reservation here again.

Měli jsme možnost třikrát povečeřet v této příjemné rodinné “žarotaverně” (jen pár kroků od moře) v červnu 2019. Užili jsme si velmi dobré jídlo, přátelský servis a pohostinnost. Ochutnali jsme chobotnici, chňapouna červeného, nějaký typ ropušnice (nejsem expert , a byl to recept místního šéfa), ančovičky, dolmades, plněné cuketové listy, plněnou cibuli, tzatziki, taramosalata (trochu jiný než obvykle, ale velmi dobrý), pomerančový koláč a nějaké saláty - a byli jsme se vším velmi spokojeni Celá rodina pečuje o své hosty, doporučuje, vysvětluje, vše co je potřeba. Domácí likér od Vasso byl vynikající! Pokud se někdy vrátíme do Finiki (v což doufáme), určitě si tu znovu zajistíme rezervaci.

I didn't come to Greece for pasta however had to come back here not only for the seafood but for the perfect al dente pasta, it was perfecto the second time as well. So indeed you must come to Finiki, Karpathos for the best Italian spaghetti you’ve ever had and darling view of the Sea.
