Went here on recommendation from TripAdvisor. Very popular so, if in peak season, I would suggest going early in the evening or booking. Lots of choice of typical Greek cuisine, had the same dish had eaten earlier in the week elsewhere on the island - the version at Caravella was obviously prepared in the kitchen there and was far superior.

We were on holiday with friends in October, found this restaurant and were invited into the kitchen to choose the fish that we would like. Food was wonderful , coudn't fault the fish. Even the Lasagna was great. The ice cream for pudding was also really good.

If you like fish this is the restaurant for you. They had fresh sea bass, sea bream, red snapper caught the same day. My wife had the sea bass. Not cheap but you get what you pay for. The patron took us into the kitchen and showed us the fish options before ordering. A good choice of wines as well... More

This is probably the only place in Paleochora where you can routinely and consistently have real fresh, instead of previously frozen, fish. It is owned and managed by a large family with strong roots in the fishing business. Although there are a few table inside, most of them are outside with a beautiful vie of the bay. The fish is...

We spent 3 nights in Paleochora, this is a beautiful town and we wished we had stayed longer. On the first day we walked past Caravella Restaurant and decided to go in for lunch. The food was amazing and fantastic value for money. We ordered fresh sardines with a salad and were so impressed we went back for dinner. We... More

The one of the best restaurants in Crete. I have a long term experience with Lougiakis family (first visit in 2003), for every time excellent quality and very good service !

If you like fresh fish, then this is the place to come. You can chose your own fish in the kitchen then it's cooked and served - they will fillet it at your table if you ask them. Naturally, all fish is fairly expensive and you pay for it by weight. However, they offer plenty of other dishes which are... More

The view was nice and staff were friendly. The only critique would be that we've eaten the same quality dishes for less elsewhere. The fresh fish selection can be pricey (double) when compared to other spots on the island.
