“Best Greek food ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Anna's restaurant in Drios is on the main road, easy to find. As you enter, Anna greets you and shows you the day's choice of foods - one more interesting than the other.
We especially loved the fried mushrooms in cheese and the egglplant with chickpeas.
Wish we had room for more....
We'll definitely be back again!

“The meal you will still be thinking about hours later and talking about weeks later”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

This is our second visit to Anna's and we love it. The food is incredibly tasty, wholesome and traditional. The service is outstanding and we enjoy the fact you get an introduction to what's on offer by Anna herself. You must visit. You won't be disappointed.

“Lovely home cooking and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

We visited on a windy and rainy night and the food was well suited to this weather: creamy chickpeas with aubergine, tasty meatballs, roast baby chicken and potaties and chicken with feta and cherry tomatoes and stuffed aubergine. The service is friendly and you are shown the different dishes of the day-no menus. Anna is very friendly and welcoming and goes out of her way to provide guests with tips on how to make the most of the various sights on Paros.

“Amazing Passion for Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

As my girlfriend and I rode our ATV from Naoussa around the north and eastern side of the island into Drios, we stopped first at a local hand made gift shop by the sea. Knowing that we wanted to try Anna's based on the reviews here, I asked the friendly jewelry maker (who also went by the name of Anna) if she knew of the restaurant. Of course! Anna was the mayor's wife, and a friend of hers. She then didn't hesitate to write us a little note to hand off, saying hello and asking the restaurant's Anna to take good care of her friends. Though no address was available, we were told that we could find this gem in the town center, across from a market. Sure enough, a few minutes later on our quad wheeler and we were there.

Immediately greeted with big smiles, we were shown everything that was on display in the cases out front, and subsequently welcomed into the kitchen to see what was cooking. This restaurant will prepare family size portions of several dishes (there had to have been some 15 - 20 different selections), and will individually portion and heat your choices to order.

Among the many choices, we asked for a variety of favorites and decided to sample the aubergine (eggplant) sliced in half with all sorts of amazing stuffing, a wonderfully roasted tomato with an intensely flavorful herbaceous stuffing, a creamy chicken and mushroom stew with golden potatoes that can only be described as heaven on my tongue, tender local island beef with okra, and of course a gift of their zesty and unbelievably moist orange cake with ice cream. There was not a bad bite to be had, everything was spectacularly flavorful and delicious.

Anna as our host and first greeting was wonderful, capably handling her duties between the kitchen, dining room and telephone with skill and grace. Our server was also extremely pleasant, excited for us on our vacation and willing to speak frankly about the island's best areas, after we inquired.

I often find myself reminiscing of this restaurant and out of every place that we ate over this particular three week vacation, it is Restaurant Anna and Karina All Day Taverna on Paros that won my heart and make me yearn to return to Greece for another round!

“Best food on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Anna not only owns and runs the restaurant but personally leads in the preparation of all the food. We have been there three times and always receive the friendliest of welcomes. Make sure you eat upstairs. Wonderfully relaxing atmosphere where you are shaded from the heat of the day and assisted by a strong cooling fan. If you happen to have rented in the south of the island Anna and her team will deliver superb Greek food to your door. Cannot write more highly of this gem of a restaurant.
