Worthwhile visiting

Maro's is a very very busy place, and unfortunately you can't make a reservation. You should go there if you are very hungry and want to eat meat. We tasted the two local rosto dishes (beef and pork). We liked the beef more than the pork. Good prices and very big portions.

We queued a very long time as we thought the restaurant looked great. The food was ok, nothing very special and the service was efficient bit not overly friendly. The food also came out way too quickly, we hadn't finished our starters before the mains came. Would visit again in a hurry.

We came here on recommendation from our hotel. It was so busy and the queue for a table was quite long. The food was okay, not quite the best food on the island we were expecting. However the service was good.

Last year that I was on the Island of Naxos i didn't mange to visit Maro's tavern. But this year it was the first thing that I did!!! It has Greek traditional food that is worth to taste. The portions are big, so keep that in mind when you order! Try the saganaki cheese, and souvlaki with chicken!!! As I... More

If your primary concern is value for money - this is the place for you. Portion sizes are enormous for what you pay and everything comes with fries. However, the quality of the food is very hit or miss. Meatballs were amazing - some seriously good tomato sauce. Oven roasted potatoes with cheese bacon and onions came out refrigerator cold....

This place was recommended to us by two separate unknown people that we met at St George's Beach. After hearing so many wonderful things, the food was so very disappointing!!! Huge portions but tasteless food. The pork souvlaki plate was inedible - the meat smelled bad! Even the Greek salad had a soft tasteless white cheese that made it taste... More

Great food at really good price.Do not order too many things as the plates are packed of food. Two main and a salad would be more than enough for a couple. That plus two beers 23 euros. Good bargain i guess. Worth visiting at least once after a long day at the beach

Maro's food is always an excellent choice for those who whould like to taste real greek cuisine. Great choice of traditional greek food. The homemade cheese pie (with local cheese) was excellent, beans in tomato sauce (the so called gigantes) were very well cooked and the pork in the oven (cooked in a special way, wrapped in cooking paper) was...
