It is a typical greek restaurant. It is in the oldtown not in the port. We ate very good (try the moussaka because it is excellent!). The waiter is very polite! We do suggest to go! The desserts are also very good (try the orange cake). Not expensive! Make a reservation!

We had a perfect dinner at the Open Garden. Even though it was the high period, the restaurant was calm and fae from the agitation of the port. The chief herself took our order and everything was perfect: the service, the food, the atmosphere. Some really good mezze (tatziki, tarama, olivs) and a delicious fig liquor was offered at the...

We stumbled upon this place and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. They didn't overwhelm you, their dishes were very flavorful, and they had unique dishes on their menu. Additionally they brought out homemade fig liquor for you to sip at the end of the meal. Service was great. The chef even came to our table to... More

On a nice terrasse in the "Gourmet street", you will enjoy a very nice meal. Food is simple, as they mention, but tasty and very well prepared. Appetizers and firsts dishes are amazing (take the selection plate). Main courses are perfect as well. On top of that, the staff is very friendly and kind. We came here for the second... More

The tricky to not say absurd thing about trip advisor is the huge jump between average and very good. In this case average is most fitting. Luckily there was a table for 2 without reservation, so glad enough for that. The restaurant was t full yet so there was some degree of attention. But alas once full they fully lost... More

Those who appreciate gourmet dining might appreciate that a number of top restaurants are lined up on the same small side street in Naoussa (see photograph). Street names are often lacking in Paros, but climb up the street to the east from Naoussa centre towards the church on the top of the hill. About halfway up, turn right when you... More

Great food and service though it is best to book ahead! We tried one night and they were fully booked, so returned the following night after booking. They have a very good vegetarian selection and they have a separate vegetarian menu which is the first time in Greece that we came across this. Wine selection is great, and the feta... More
