Karpathos is not a culinary mecca and most of the restaurants are pretty ordinary. This was the best place I ate in a week in the island. It is a family operated restaurant one block above the harbor and has a nice settings. The restaurant has a fishing boat which deliver local fresh fish and it was the best fish... More

We stayed 10 days in Olympos and had several lunches and dinners in different places, both in the southern as well as northern part of the island. Having explored a few dozens of Greek islands -both in the Aegean as well as in the Ionian sea- and sampled some extraordinary local food, we were struck during our stay in Karpathos... More

Food was good but personally thought it was very overpriced compared to other restaurants in Diafani.

We have been coming here for several years, driving up from Pigadia, just to have food from this exceptional cuisine. And of course to enjoy meeting the family on the terrace.

The location is very nice. The food is more or less good. The service is also good. Our expectations were greater because of reputation and prices.

We spent 4 nights in Diafani and had dinner at this sea food restaurant twice . The first one we had fish and the second the famous crayfish pasta (there was no lobster on the day). The food was 100% fresh off the boat as the brother of the owner is a fisherman . Hence the selection of fish -... More

We stayed in Diafani for 9 days and virtually tried every restaurant/tabern that exists in this small and lovely village in the north of Karpathos. To sum it up, you won't get better fish than at this place. We can highly recommend grilled fish in general but everyone should try their famous and amazing"pasta with lobster". Next to their fresh... More

We ave been to Diafani for several years, but we discovered this splendid restaurant just two years ago. O.K., the location at the beach would attract more people to come in, but the food and the atmosphere is great. Thanks to Popi and her mother for the excellent cooking and Pavlos for everydays fresh fish. But it's not only the... More

The restaurant has own boat and fishes every day. There is different fishes to choose from as well as lobsters, and for at good price. If you go for lobster we were told to pre ordet because of the sauce. We had dinner here twice and must say that we was not quite satisfied. First time we had cooked octopus... More
