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.

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.

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
