Fantastic, authentic Greek food

Based on other reviews, we booked here for our last dinner in Greece and were not disappointed. As we booked, we were seated in the charming courtyard under the vines and it was a magical evening. The food was so delicious and the service excellent.

If you want to enjoy an excellent meal either inside the restaurant or outside in the garden, Vassilis is the place to go. Popped in on two evenings on my recent trip. Good food and friendly, personal service explain why it remains so popular. Definitely visit it even if you're only on Naxos a short time.

I began with a half portion of beetroot salad E3 which was fine. I sat outside gazing at colourful geraniums in pots strategically placed up steps. The waiters were friendly and even spoke to me in Greek which I appreciated. Menu attractive in several languages. I salivated over my slowly cooked rabbit stifado falling off the bones as it should... More

We have been returning to Vassilis for many years. Friendly, welcoming family run taverna with an old world charm. Delicious meals, a traditional Greek menu with a wide variety of well presented meals. A must while visiting Naxos.

Vassilis is a great restaurant on one of the narrow streets in Old Town Naxos. The food is fresh and traditional and the menu is quite extensive. The Greek sausage is excellent. The service is good and the owners/staff are friendly.

We had saga akin to start, nice but slightly under cooked. Followed with seafood mixed grill, very large portion and great selection, this was excellent. Beef moussaka was also very good, and we liked the fresh fruit for pudding. Nice setting, very pretty.
