“Excellent in every aspect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Friendly smiling people , excellent food using local and fresh ingredients . Special daily dishes are worth a try and fish is only offered when fresh.
The place and decoration is really relaxed and adds up to the feeling.

“A gem of a restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

When you tell peoplewho have been in Naxos that you are going there, they always advise you to go to Axiotisa. This lovely restaurant is hidden away amidst an olive grove but everyone who is a gourmet and who wants to stray away from the traditional taverna fare always makes a pilgrimage there. Axiotisa's menu features traditional Greek dishes with a twist made by delicious local ingredients.And yes, it is true, you do need to make a reservation.

“Room for improvement”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

Disappointment not only fm the execution of some recipes but more importantly from the behavior. Obviously you need to make a reservation as we did, but if someone is coming without reservation you can treat them in a better way and not having a face like trying to tell them " how you dare coming here without a reservation?"
Recipes have room for improvement, at least the dishes that we took, but the attitude must be more professional when someone is giving feedback. We were asked from the waiter and we said that one plate was not really how it should be.
We would expect to tell us that we will pass the comments to the chef but surprisingly we received the reply that this is a matter of taste.

I am sorry that you were dissapointed but we are in a very difficult position when people come in Augoust without a reservation because we have to say that we can not serve them. We don't enjoy tell customers "no, we are full", our role is to do our best so that customers have a good time in our taverna.
On the other hand it is interesting to hear about the way that the recipes would be better, especially about recipes that we have invented. We insist about the fact that some criticism is a matter of taste, for example if somebody doesn't like fish, how can he/she judges if the monk fish or tuna carpaccio is good? Criterians are a matter of culture and cullinary experience, and this makes things more complicated and subjective.

“Busy but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

The fact that reservations are necessary in a simple island taverna rankles a bit but, all in all, a worthwhile experience. Loved the fava beans and the wine, the main courses were less impressive but still very tasty. Have to salute the fact that with so many customers prices remain reasonable
