“Service lacking personality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

The food was delicious and a good value, but the service/personality was lacking. I felt like I was pulling teeth from the young server when I inquired about some of the menu items. The "season" had not even started in Naxos yet (End of May)...so, the owners might want to reconsider their front of house staff if they want to keep the tourists happy for the rest of the summer!

“Worth a second look”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Our group if 12 came here on our first night in Naxos and all enjoyed our meals immensely. We tried many others during our stay but came back to Maro's for our 9th, & sadly, last night in Naxos. Great rustic food, huge portions & excellent value. Highly recommended.

Big portions, cheap local wine which was nice.
Very relaxing after a long journey!
Moussaka and Souvlaki were amazing!

“Good food, average service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Food was pretty good and incredible value. Service was average and we didn't feel particularly comfortable. Location is in a side street but walking distance to all other places in the city. Would go again but maybe for lunch.

“One of the best choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

What recommendations for this restaurant... It's I think, one of the best at Naxos, with very good service and delicious food! The prices are also very good, so you have to wait for a free table!
