This taverna is a very unique place, with excellent home made food and authentic surroundings. The first impression is that you don't get a written menu- Greek traditional style!- but Alex who speaks very good English will tell you what's on the menu of the day. I think probably this restaurant may not be to everyone's taste or style,especially if... More

Food is so tasty and the staff is very friendly. If you come to Lefkos you must go to this place for a wonderful meal. I strongly recommend you all to do that.

We could not taste anything, the guy is out of his mind. Unable to bring a menu, gets angry if you ask about the price, and thinks that their taverna is the best on the island. The guy was arrogant from the first minute.

Everything is good here, Food staff & views. Seafood and other creative dishes are excellent variations over well known themes. Eprth mentioning is their Greek salad with capary, wineleaves and herbs. This place is worth a detour!

No menu but Alex will tell what they have. The food is very good and the service even better. After the bill you get some apricots from own garden from Alex's mother and when you leave you get homemade apricotjam. View of the taverne is great too. Very worthwile visit.

This is an old style Greek restaurant. There is no printed menu. You sit down, someone comes and they tell you what they have on offer that day. The list is 5 miles long! If you're not sure what you want they will take you into kitchen and show you the food. You might have to wait a while. This... More

Got there by a chance. but we kept coming every single day untill we left. Alex and his mom cook the food with a lot of love. Really amazing seafood, one of the best we've ever tasted. The giant shrimps were the best. good vegeterian selection, and if you're lucky, you'll get a taste of the Galactombourico - the amazing... More

"Small kitchen great food" the lunch was the best we have had in all the trip. Real home cook ! Real "farm (sea) to table" all you have to do is ask what is in the kitchen today. Alex is running the place and his mother is cooking traditional food , simple and fresh!

Fantastic Taverna by the sea in lovely Lefkos. Probably the best taverna on Karpathos. Run by a fantastic family Alex. dina and George. A nice place to visit especially at sunset. strongly recommended. Please note that the location according to Tripadvisor is not correct the Taverma is located in the small harbour in Lefkos.
