My husband and I enjoyed an early dinner at Zorba's Taverne in Karfas last night. We noticed it is posted on TripAdvisor under Chios rather than Karfas, Chios - but we're glad we kept searching and are happy to provide a recent review. Zorba's is set back from the water, but you still have a sea view from many of... More

This is simply the best restaurant in Karfas! They serve delicious traditional Greek meals prepared with love and attention (and fresh ingredients).

Once you have eaten here, you will return.... More

Try the Mousaka with tomato-balls - I am sure it is the best Mousaka in Greece...! Friendly taverna with authentic greek atmosphere, and the best Greek food in all Chios Island (I am living there for periods and drive around eating in many different places) and to a decent price - absolutely worth a visit!

The food is good and fresh, good value, lively atmosphere. Owner is very friendly and welcoming, makes you feel like you're the only table, but, of course, you're not. I come here often when I'm in Karfas. Worth the visit.
