Traditional greek cuisine in Diafani. Very familiar with fresh products. They also have delicious cakes.

La Gorgona is located on the right side of Diafani beach, out of the track where people usually step to visit the beach. Yet, you enjoy a nice view and a constant breeze. Starting your day with a "caffe con la moka" at la Gorgona,...More

A sweet place to be, friendly personel always with a smile on their face! I really enjoyed this place and I spend most of my daily hours there. Really tasty food but the best of all was the tiramisu.

The desert was not as good as the review books raved, nor the coffee, considering the place is Italian. It was not terrible, but neither good.

Wonderful small restaurant in Diafani - its almost the first you pass as you walk from the ferry quay. Lovely view over the harbour/bay. On the second night we watched the excitement of the ferry arriving in a small Greek port. Good choice of food...More

If you like mediterrenean cooking, you are at the right place. I remember well the spinach pie with parmigiano! Nice place for sitting and enjoying life.

la Gorgona is the only Italian restaurant in Karpathos Island. it's located in the main square in Diafani village, close to the fountain. 2 minutes walk from the pier and along the road to the ferry dock. A beautiful veranda in front of the sea for romantic moments and also chairs in the square to feel downtown :)Gabriella, the cook, offers both Italian and Greek food. As she says, she also offers "smart conversation"... A very nice place to eat, drink, reading a book listening to music or simply watching at the sea! Don't go away without asking for a dessert; all cakes are homemade, fresh every day. Let's also have a "limoncello" prepared with organic lemons from Diafani gardens. We accept reservations and prepare fish soup/seafood on demand. Free wifi.
