On the night we went there were only 3 tables in but it still had a great intimate atmosphere. Great food done very well and a feeling of local authenticity. The restaurant area both outside and in has a great look to it and we wished we ate at the start of the stay rather than the end!

We visited this restaurant unfortunately near to the end of our stay in Paxos. We wish we had eaten there earlier on as it was excellent and good value for money. The staff were brilliant and the food was of high quality whilst the prices reasonable. Definitely would recommend this restaurant

I had the kleftiko...OMG amazing! The pastry was beautiful and crisp with delicious tender chunks of lamb shank. My husband had a beautiful steak dish, cooked to perfection . The... More

It is interesting to read reviews which are premised upon the search for perfection which so often remains unsatisfied. How unhappy these perpetually dissatisfied reviewers must be? We visited towards the end of the season and the one waitress on duty transformed the evening by her graceful and smiling disposition. The food was delicious and we resolved to return the... More

We visited on Tuesday in late September expecting it to be quiet. The owners obviously did as there was only one waitress working. The place soon became busy and the waitress did a brilliant job. The food was good....except for the "Special Tonight" lamb shank. It was well cooked and presented but the sauce was so salty that it was... More

Well worth the five minute walk out of town. From the outside, it looks a class above, but the prices are on a par with most restaurants in the centre. The food is pleasantly different, with large portions of high quality. I have only marked it down to four stars because there was a half hour delay between finishing my... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the villa company we had booked with but were quite disappointed. As it was a 'wet' night, we had to eat inside which was ok but nothing special. The food was very average but the staff were friendly. I wouldn't visit again.

We decided to try this restaurant this year, having felt that last year it was too warm in the evenings to be away from the water front. Although still warm it was a lovely eating experience with live music (Thursday's) but not too loud we couldn't talk! Excellent food and excellent presentation.

Carnayo, and its owner-chef Spiros Tranakas, are to my mind, what makes Paxos such a wonderful destination. Lovely setting away from the bustle of the harbour front in a peaceful and beautifully laid out garden. Attentive and very friendly staff and of course the personal touch of Spiros himself. Brought up in Germany he was one of the first Paxiot... More
