Filthy dinner
Jul 2019 • Family
We have a house in Paros and loved going to Taos with our kids for early dinner but also later dinners with adults. Very easy with kids with lots of space for them to run around. It was very windy the last time we went but we managed to find a sheltered spot. The service was incredibly slow and disjointed which is pretty standard there but we settled in when food started to arrive.

I can not describe how many flies were flying around us during our meal and perching on our food. Again like the wind not the restaurant’s fault but I’m sure there are some ways to deter flies which they clearly had not bothered with.

Final cherry though was when we found three dead flies in the small glass bowl of ketchup accompanying my toddler’s chicken strips. Waitress was equally mortified. I asked how it could have happened and her almost too honest answer was perhaps one of the most revolting things I have ever heard mid eating when I accused them of not washing little glass bowls between diners and refilling with new ketchup. “No, no we always use new bowls for each meal the flies probably went to the ketchup bottle and got stuck in the bottle and then were squirted out into ketchup when we prepared meal”. They gave us the drinks on the house but as one can imagine we can never go back. Kitchen must be filthy...

Excessive prices for a quality of mediocre non-organic products and not varied damage because the place is beautiful but the kitchen during yoga retreats really not up to par

Jun 2019 • Family
we have visited tao’s a number of times over the years. they continue to impress with high quality asian food in a stunning setting with gorgeous views. sushi is really fresh and delicious, the thai dishes are fancyful and authentic, also generously sized. in 2019 the facilities were renovated. highly recommended.

Unforgettable experiences at Taos
Jul 2018 • Friends
We visited Taos twice this summer! The first time in July for private sessions and ring with the amazing resident teacher. My friends and I spent a few lovely evenings there as well, delicious healthy food and great music! The vibe is always peaceful and fun. I went back to Taos towards the end of September for a 7 day workshop and it is a beautiful and unforgettable experience to be there with all the genuine people and staff.

Spacious veranda, windy though when in August, the waiters claimed that the serve the best noodles, and they were very good. Portions are sized for non typical Greeks, but they are surely enough.

Tao´s center is a little gem lost in the highs of Paros! Its atmospher is very peaceful, relaxing and full of good vibes. The staff is soo frendly and soo helpful! The everyday courses are run by amazing teachers, exelling in what they teach. We spent an amazing week there, met great people willing to share their passion!
Cherry on the top: food is soo tasteful!

Would defenetly recommend it, it was hard to leave...

Not only they served us with delay, to some of us more than 2hours, but also the attitude was arrogant and unprofessional!
