If I only had one greek restaurant meal left in life - I would have it at the Blue Swan Taverna.
Home cooked, home grown or home caught (in the case of fish obviously) - this taverna is Karpathos at its best. As with many tavernas it looks simple to the northern european eye - and it IS simple but in the best meaning of that term: Just a covered concrete terrace overlooking the bay with maybe 10 tables, run by the family that owns it, serving classic greek/Karpathos food. Food that is cooked with love and great skill. Of course this requires that you venture a bit outside the safe tourist paths like souvlaki with french fries (nothing wrong with that dish, but....) - I'm sure you will be invited to the kitchen to see and choose for yourself.
