The best place to chill out in Paros

Magaya is an awesome place to eat, drink & chill out. The food is a great mix of Greek & Asian, the staff are really lovely & the beach is small but perfectly formed. We love hanging out at Magaya it is the 'third bowl of porridge', just right.

We have known this place for years. We've swam on their beach, we've eaten lovely food and we've had coffee or a drink. What ever you choose to do it is always a lovely experience. The staff are very friendly and professional. It's our favourite place.

At a very beautiful bay, this exceptional restaurant offers excellent view and very tasteful dishes at reasonable prices. The decor is very fine, the music is cool and Hermes, the lovely dog of the owners is the mascot of the place.

Magaya is in one of the most beautiful bays of Paros. The setting and the views are absolutely beautiful. The staff is friendly and it is a very welcoming place. However, we found the food very ordinary and rather bland. I would go back for drinks and mezzes but not a full meal.

We were staying nearby for a night. It was recommended so we decided to try it out. We went for a drink and a little wander. Stayed for several drinks and cocktails prepared by the wonderful Riko ! Started by having a few nibbles with our drinks and they were so good we had dinner. Best fish we had in... More

By an almost private beach, it transports you to the Barbados or Cuba. A pleasant change of the traditional Greek Taverna by the sea. Excellent menu of a few things, but perfectly prepared. You may forget yourself on the excellent Mohitos, so dont forget to have a designated driver. Good for any time of the day, family and pets friendly.

Magaya is located at a fantastic spot, at the west side of Paros, near Paroikia. Ideal for sunsets and romantic evenings. The restaurant itself is "Mexican" style in decoration, with some tables by the beach, and some seating areas inside the "hacienda-like" interior. It offers a menu on Mexican and ethnic dishes, as well as some traditional Greek ones, and... More

When I was sitting at our table, looking out on the idyllic Souvlia beach and the blues in the Mediterranean sea and sky, I thought that either I give out too many 5 star ratings on TI, or that I wish there was a 5* for really special restaurant experiences. The moment we walked into Magaya we felt relaxed and... More

This on the beach spot is worth a visit if your at the beach or have extra time to take the 5-minute drive from Parikia. It sits near Delfine west of town. We had 2 beers, pita, a curry plate & chicken souvlaki. Price 28€ Warning, as other reviewers wrote, service was slow. Friendly staff served us on a beautiful... More
