Elda's kitchen has broken out of the big restaurant style offering a smaller variety of inventive and inspired preparations through the use of fresh local ingredients. Many will be pleased that some items made popular at Open Garden the previews years made their way through to the brand new menu. The menu features traditional homemade Greek appetizer & casserole dishes with a twist, seasonal & local vegetables as well as seafood, poultry and steaks prepared "a la plancha" - a method of cooking quickly on heavy steel using little or no fats.This method enhances the flavors and textures of the freshest, well seasoned ingredients.

Very Enjoyable!

We ate here a couple of times. The first thing we liked was the beer menu which had beer from several Greek ''craft'' breweries - unusual and very good ! There were several taverna standards such as Souvlaki on the menu, but all a bit different and better quality than usual. We really enjoyed what... read more

The food and service were very good. The chef came out to check with us that everything was ok, and it was. The wine recommendation was good and complimented the food well. It was a cool, breezy night and there were not many diners so the atmosphere was a little subdued. There are no indoor tables so ensure you go... More

The place is excellent The food is super tasty Elda is very polite and customer oriented Total: 10! I do not understand the bad critics though... I do not usually post reviews, but I felt like posting one, first because the food was so good and second because of the bad reviews... I understand that some people are "professional complainers"...

Very cute terrasse in a lovely patio. Located in the "gourmet street". Reservation needed even in late september. Lovely cheffe from Belgium (I think), beautiful food, full of flavors. The dishes were mostly greek but with a nice twist and very fine. We had the delicious grilled haloumi and split peas for starters. Then gambas with orange sauce and fenel... More

Came here twice during our stay in Naoussa and we were blown away both times. Portions are generous so we just had a main course and bread each time. Octopus stew isn't something I'd normally order but it was great. Next time I had the chicken in cream, honey and sage. Amazing. Afterwards we were given a small complimentary carafe... More

Good food in pleasant surroundings outdoors. Friendly staff. Not sure what the lounge but refers to in the title? Perhaps slightly lacking in atmosphere (?).

This is a small restaurant with limited but interesting menu - I would characterise as "Greek with a French twist". The food and the restaurant itself were well presented and the service friendly. We ate there twice and we entirely happy with both quality and value. Like others we found the starters particularly enticing. Booking advisable!

We ate here twice during our holiday to Naoussa,Paros. We always vote for the best restaurant ourselves and go there on our last night, a unanimous vote in favour of Open Garden. Shared starters of octupus salad, zucchini croquettes and grilled haloumi with caramelised onions got us off to a good start. Mains consisted of oven baked cod, honey &... More

My wife and I were yesterday at this restaurant. The service is very nice. The starters are all very good and portion are generous. In fact we stopped after starters (we tried 5 of them) because we were already full and we got a tasty liqueur of cinnamon and mushrooms offered by the house before paying.

We were lucky to get a table without a reservation as we arrived early. In keeping with a restaurant concerned with providing a dining experience to its customers they turned away many hopeful customers rather than rush us. We found the food cooked to perfection with attention both to presentation and delicate flavors. We enjoyed our meals so much we... More
