Karpathos Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Karpathos

November 4, 2017 Marianna Hollaway

Karpathos (Greek: Κάρπαθος, Greek pronunciation: [ˈkarpaθos]) is the second largest of the Greek Dodecanese islands, in the southeastern Aegean Sea. Together with the neighboring smaller Saria Island it forms the municipality of Karpathos, which is part of the Karpathos regional unit. Because of its remote location, Karpathos has preserved many peculiarities of dress, customs and dialect, the last resembling those of Crete and Cyprus. The island has also been called Carpathus in Latin, Scarpanto in Italian and Kerpe in Turkish.

Dimitrios Fisherman

Magnificent fishrestaurant with a wonderful sea view NOW OPEN up to October 2017 and for sure the next year also!

Reviewed By pauls-beisl - Breitenfurt

Seating overlooking the bay, great view. The fish was good, but nor really tasty, the price ok, they served vegetables before we finished the starters, so they were cold when the fish arrived. Restrooms: no toilet seats on the toilets. The management of this restaurant is improvable

Capannina Cafe

Reviewed By silvia_battocchio - ginevra

After 10 days in Greece we started missing some pasta and we gladly tried this place suggested by the owner of Villa Althea rooms. Very good pasta, nice sauces and perfectly cooked, we tried both La Capannina (similar to pasta alla norma) and with shrimps and calamars plus the salad with nuts, grapes and Parmesan. We also came for drinks (aperol spritz only 4 eur, cocktails 6 eur), we have never been disappointed! Magnificent view over the Amoopi bay, very nice environment, steps away from the beach of small Amoopi - great if you come for lunch from the beach too. Bravi Michele and Federico, genuinita' e simpatia!

A perfect place to relax. Any time of the day. Very nice boss and waiters.
Many good drinks and good food. Sit down and look at the harbour for the fishingboats and the ferry. In the evening the harbour-area are closed for cars,and the tourists owns the street.
