Can be difficult to find in the Old Town, but dont give up. Good food, nice atmosphere and friendly waiters, and as it is a bit away from the Paralia you can have a conversation with your co-eaters. Recommend their " platters for 2 ", some wine and it cant be better for starters.

Nice restaurant located in downtown in a courtyard with trees and flowers and it really seems a garden. They offer both meat and fish meals and also great desserts. Baklava is something special. Though this is our third time in Naxos we never stopped here before. Probably not the best restaurant on the island but it worths a stop. We... More

We stumbled upon this lovely patio restaurant and were lucky to find the perfect table to enjoy a fabulous dinner. The waiters were friendly and had great suggestions for our food preferences. The grilled octopus was fresh, simple, light and delicious. Very unpretentious.

We just had dinner here based on Tripadvisor rating. The rabbit dish was was very small with a lot of pearl onions with a tomato sauce that overpowered the overcooked rabbit. The lamb in parchment was cold and very basic. The second most expensive red wine on the list was very warm and not very good. They did oblige us... More

Went to Manolis Garden early October. The walled in garden that housed the restaurant was classic Greek. The atmosphere and charm was all I could ask for. I ordered a Greek salad and stuffed grape vine leaves. For some reason both were bland. I had to add more olive oil to the salad, apparently the oil was not the best... More

We went to this restaurant on recommendation from our friend who visits Naxos annually. Given the large number of restaurants to choose from on the Island, we had high expectations. Manolis did not disappoint. The food was great and the service was excellent.It offered great value and a wide choice of home cooked foods. The restaurant is run by a... More

Service is beyond imagination.. they offer you desert on the house and have as their first priority to treat you well and you can tell its original and not fake. Food is traditional Greek very tasty and rich.Mousaka maybe... More

This place is great for a romantic meal, hidden away in the twisty streets of the old town. Delicious, authentic real Greek fare (why go to Greece if you don't want real Greek food) Try the rabbit stifado or the lamb. Plenty of cats roaming around too. :)
