5x Restaurants op Karpathos

En Plo – Pigadia, Karpathos

When you see En Plo, you probably don’t think of a restaurant for an evening meal. We understand that. It looks more like a café/bar where you can go for a drink. Nothing is less true, En Plo is really suitable for breakfast, lunch and dinner! En Plo serves a variety of dishes and not necessarily Greek. Good, because it is sometimes nice to eat something different! En Plo for us is:

  • Sociable, good staff
  • Delicious cocktails (Happy hour between 17.00 and 19.30)
  • Good burgers and sandwiches
  • Yoghurt breakfast (yoghurt with fresh fruit, honey and walnuts, YUM!)

Four Seasons – Amoopi, Karpathos

Four Seasons is our favourite restaurant in the village of Amoopi on Karpathos. First we always have a drink with Tom from Skala bar and then we go to eat at the Four Seasons. A cosy place with simple, but good Greek dishes. Especially their fresh bread with onions is really delicious! Four Seasons is for us:

  • Sociable, good staff
  • In addition to the menu, always some fresh dishes
  • Vers Karpathisch brood (warm!)
  • Ouzo on the house

Kipos – Arkassa, Karpathos

For us, Kipos is truly the number one restaurant on Karpathos. The name of the restaurant already honours its name. Kipos means garden and the restaurant looks like garden. They have a nice kitchen. Greek dishes, but with a different touch.

  • Beautiful location and good staff
  • Greek dishes, but just a bit different
  • Fresh dishes every day, in addition to the regular menu
  • Try ‘Kipan-gria’, delicious alcoholic drink! Unfortunately, the drink has been removed from the menu, but if you ask Manolis, he will make it especially for you 🙂

Mesogios – Pigadia, Karpathos

Mesogios restaurant can be found at the harbour of Karpathos in Pigadia. It has recently been painted, but it used to be a restaurant with a very bright blue colour. Really Greek, that was the reason we went there at the time: really a Greek taverna. Mesogios has a lot of dishes and is known for its Greek tapas, mezzes. They also have fresh dishes every day. Mesogios for us:

  • Good staff (and funny!)
  • Different, fresh dishes every day (can be seen on Facebook from +/- 15.00 hrs)
  • Spanakopita
  • Whole or half chicken every Friday and Saturday

Poseidon – Afiartis, Karpathos

Poseidon restaurant is just around the corner from us 😉 The restaurant (and hotel) is situated at Damatria beach in Afiartis. This restaurant on Karpathos is run by a Dutch sommelier and his Greek wife. She participated a few years ago in Masterchef Greece and that is reflected in the dishes. All the dishes are very special. The prices are a lot higher than in other restaurants on Karpathos. But Poseidon is certainly nice for a special evening or to celebrate something. Poseidon means for us:

  • Special dishes
  • For a special evening or to celebrate something
  • Chicken nest
  • Lamb & pork from the Greek oven on Sunday (reservations usually needed)

Under the trees – Finiki, Karpathos

If you are looking for a nice restaurant to have lunch on Karpathos, we recommend Under the trees! This restaurant has a fantastic spot with a beautiful view. The location is recognizable by the blue bench along the road. Many tourists have their picture taken here, I recommend it! In front of the blue bench (seen from Finiki in the direction of Lefkos) you will find Under the trees. This spot has a small menu, but is oh so delicious! We stopped here for a piece of bread and souvlaki and it was delicious! Under the trees for us:

  • Pleasant stopover
  • For a simple (but tasty!) lunch
  • Souvlaki sticks
