Excellent food and ambience

This was written up in a guide book. The food was superb even though it was a bit pricey (which we expected). Close to our hotel. Would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a great Greek meal.

Ideal inside space, in the old city area away from the harbour, workd well if it's cool and wet which it was on the night we ate there. Food was excellent, nicely presented, setvice was good and the ambient welcoming. A touch above what is available at all the harbour-side venues especially because they served delicious boiled Naxos potatoes instead... More

I was lucky enough to find this place after five years of going to the island. Instantly it was a favourite of mine and everyone that came with me. The food is great, lots of traditional Greek dishes, I love the lamb they serve. Cooked to perfection. The staff are very friendly and helpful. After the meal they gave us... More

Located in the tiny, dreamy alley ways of Old Town this lovely spot offers great food AND romance! Try the stuffed mushroom caps with Apple, sage and breadcrumbs! It's a WOW!

If you like small and informal places with a lot of character then Vassilis restaurant is for you (make sure you sit at the courtyard - pots of plants and romantic atmosphere) Very good customer service, food was delicious, generous portions. I did order fish, which was amazing. My friends had chicken and they were also pleased with their food.... More

We visted yesterday. The restaurant is nice, the staff also, but the mixed grill we ordered was all burnt, and not very enjoyable. We told the staff about this, but they offered us nothing to compensate.

We have visited Naxos nine times over last 20 years and always make sure we visit Vassilis at least once Food is great and the service good & friendly creating a charming atmosphere Roll on next year's holiday. We highly recommend - definitely worth a visit. One of the best restaurants on the island (if not the best).

We ate at Vassilis in the old town last night and had a lovely evening in a very nice restaurant. The staff (two brothers and two sisters) worked tirelessly and were very friendly and helpful. Our food was good, if not quite amazing. The cold beer and house wine were welcome too and we had some lovely fruits with a... More
