My wife and sister found this place wandering the alleys of Naxos Town. We returned for dinner. It has a great atmosphere. The wait staff is very attendant. The food was great. One of those restaurants where you want to linger over your meal and never leave.

Decided to stop here for a late lunch while walking around Naxos old town and liked the idea of a traditional Greek meal. We sat in the shady courtyard with Greek music playing in the background. My husband had the rabbit stew and I had baked aubergines, and we shared a Greek salad. All fresh and delicious, with big portions.... More

Located somewhere in the maze of alleys in the old town is this traditional family run taverna. The decor is neat and clean. The service was prompt without feeling rushed and we thoroughly enjoyed our grilled swordfish.

This Taverna is the back alleys in the old town and it serves great food. It has a great menu of quality food beautifully cooked from local specialities to traditional Greek and Mediterranean cuisine. Everything is fresh and local. The house wines are also very good quality and local to Naxos. This is a traditional family run Taverna and the... More

This was probably the best meal we had on our holiday in Naxos. Very good staff, reasonable prices (but not the cheapest in town) and a good menu. Had we been staying in Naxos town, we would undoubtedly have eaten there more than once!

We were recommended this traditional Greek family run tavern by a couple who travel to Naxos once or twice a year and swear that once you've been to Vassilis you won't want to eat anywhere else. We have already eaten here 5 times! Tried 3 other top rated trip advisor restaurants in Naxos and were rather disappointed so keep returning... More

We can here to try some traditional Greek food in the old streets of Naxos town. This restaurant has a good family feel about it, but we weren't blown away by the food. The one stand out item was the spetzofia dish on the starters menu, sausages & peppers in a tomatoe sauce, which we could not get enough of,... More

A quaint and traditional taverna (even down to the cockroach on the ground just outside the entrance!) in the Old Market. We were a large group (8) and the staff did their very best to find us a good spot and make us welcome. My only criticism would be that the location was in a very draughty position that made...

just inside the old market area in the old town, Vassilis is a splendid taverna which has been going for over 60 years. The tables are spread in the alleyways around the restaurant and provide a terrific ambiance. The food and service are very good and the family run nature of the place really comes across. Make sure you have... More

A small restaurant hidden in the back streets of the old market in Naxos. Excellent food in a charming setting, and fast friendly service.
