We liked Carnayo - greak with a modern twist. The Mezze starter plates are good to share. Mains were lovely - had chicken klefitiko. Portions were huge and sometimes a bit too much.

The only restaurant in Paxos so far that gave me a gourmet experience. We loved the mixed starters and the many of the day. The garden is very chilled and romantic. The house wine was lovely too. The food is freshly made by a chef...More

The food was of a very high quality, and the prices exceptionally reasonable. There were only three other couples in there, and it felt as if the two waitresses were watching every move! The ambience was best suited to a romantic meal for couples.
