Simple and unpretentious - unlike a neighbouring restaurant

We ate well here, good tasty Greek food complimented by friendly service. The moussaka was very good and so was the fresh seafood. Tables in a rustic, vine-draped courtyard, Highly recommended.

We had dinner at Manolis and we're not disappointed. It is situated in the Old Town, in a delightful Garden setting with lots of flowers and plants including a giant Robinia tree! The food is excellent, cooked in a wood burning oven. The staff are attentive, polite and friendly. Follow Old Lane and will come upon Manolis Garden.

This is one of those places that you have to go because of what and where it is. Manoli has been standing wafting a fan over the hot coals of his bbq as long as I can remember. It is in a unique location so can be quiet and the fare will be traditionally greek. But definitley worth a try....... More

We visited here in 2013 and had to return! It really should be higher up in the ratings for Naxos as it is very good. If you find the bakery then Manolis Garden is next to it. The place is family run, we recognised some of the waiting staff from last year. The staff are lovely, they are warm and... More

An excellent restaurant. One of the most beautiful restaurant in Naxos (Old Market). A very dynamic and smiling staff with a sweet gift at the end of the dinner :) Le jeune couple de français ^^

We found this restaurant tucked away in the labyrinth of streets around the fort area and we were sold because of the open wood fired oven. The bread, baked meats and stuffed vine leaves were the best we have experienced on our Greek trip and very reasonably priced!

Really glad that we went to this restaurant. I cant understand why it not higher on the list of restaurants in Naxos. It is in a difficult to find location but worth the effort. It has a good vegetarian menu and I really enjoyed the vegetarian Moussaka. It is worth the trip. The staff are just lovely.

Ate here last night - been to Naxos 3 times and 1st time here - I can't believe it took 3rd visit. It's competing with many places doing probably the exact same menu but it's location is a plus - and we had fava bean salad & meatballs to start - very clear to see meatballs were freshly made. Then... More

Tucked away in the maze of winding back streets is this gorgeous restaurant which is set in beautiful gardens. Lovely setting, delicious food and they ask if you would like any bread......not the usual trick of just bringing it and charging you for it.

We had a mixed starters plate which was delicious so I really recommend it. Wine was great (we had a bottle of the Sigalas from Oia). Do mind that the portion sizes here (as almost everywhere on the island - we found) are quite large so be careful not to order too many dishes.
