“Typical touristic restaurant”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Used to be much better in the past. The food quality is acceptable but nothing to die for. A plan B option if the other top suggestions are closed, or full

“Average experience”
Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

Decent food, nothing spectacular. The Cretan salad and the stuffed wine leafs were the best. The service is mediocre and gives the feeling that you are somehow disturbing them. Not a fish restaurant.

“really good food”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Nice looking place, with chillouting jazz music, medium service and a very good food. Today, we took snails as an apetizer, which actually was the bad choice. Snails were not tasty. But the rest was really tasty. Grilled lamb with youghurt and pineapple was PERFECT. Lamb from oven with potatoes was very good as well (maybe a little bit too fatty). Karnagio is a place worth of trying

Tasteful meal, simple ingredients but of the best quality, nice atmosphere. When simplicity means perfection.

“Karnagio has everything but the view”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

So, let's gets past the view and focus on the important stuff: the dinner. The view is the parking lot in front of the outside dining area. Done. Now to the food.
A tasty eggplant spread stated my dinner, followed by fried sardines which met the only two qualifications for excellence: the sardines be fresh and the frying oll be clean. Both were.

I was brought into the kitchen to inspect and choose my fresh fish. Opening the ice draw, I choose a rouget (red mullet) and a sea bream (think red snapper texture). The waiter weight them and told me the price. They were cooked to retain their moisture, which met the only cooking requirement for a delicious dish. Add a Greek rose' wine and the dinner was a success.
Now, if the owner would only surround the outside with some potted trees, flowering bushes and vines, the parking lot would disapper, and your vision would be as rewarded as your palate.
