The most interesting thing, is that the resturnat owner is super friendly, he showed us all the fish they had in the kitchen, very very fresh. we tried the salad with the house made feta cheese, very creamy cheese :). Everything was very tasty and the atmospher was amazing. I strongly suggest everyone to try this resturant.

Visited this restaurant several times now over recent years, and have never had anything but the best, freshest (and in one case last year, biggest) fish ever. Recently (Mid April) had a fantastic lunch. As to the "Big Fish Story", that was last year. Usually, most fish you select seem to be about the same "individual portion" size. for some... More

Loved everything, couldn't have been looked after better. Dad can grill fish like an expert, (30 years experience) and the rest of the family all playing their part. Even little sister doing her homework in the corner. Now that's a family business...

Stopped over for lunch on our way to Elafonisi in this pleasant and sleepy town during the off season. Feeling lazy and enjoyed a relaxed meal of Greek salad and fried shrimps on the terrace under the sun. Just what we needed to continue our journey.

Went here on recommendation from TripAdvisor. Very popular so, if in peak season, I would suggest going early in the evening or booking. Lots of choice of typical Greek cuisine, had the same dish had eaten earlier in the week elsewhere on the island - the version at Caravella was obviously prepared in the kitchen there and was far superior.

We were on holiday with friends in October, found this restaurant and were invited into the kitchen to choose the fish that we would like. Food was wonderful , coudn't fault the fish. Even the Lasagna was great. The ice cream for pudding was also really good.

If you like fish this is the restaurant for you. They had fresh sea bass, sea bream, red snapper caught the same day. My wife had the sea bass. Not cheap but you get what you pay for. The patron took us into the kitchen and showed us the fish options before ordering. A good choice of wines as well... More
