Subtle tastes and all time classic comfort food, all served with a smile!!Open Garden Restaurant & Lounge, Naoussa, Paros, Greece / Open from April to October / Everyday 7pm - 1am.

Lovely atmospheric garden. Our waiter brought us various extras on-the-house too which was a nice surprise! The food was delicious - great use of herbs to make common dishes really special. Would definitely go back, great value for money.
