If you are visiting the Island of Naxos in particular the Plaka Beach area you should not miss an opportunity to eat at Nikos & Maria’s Restaurant. Situated right at the beach you can enjoy your meal either on the beach itself or in the...Restaurant proper. The food is well prepared, presented and reasonably priced. In the present circumstances where hygiene is critical this establishment meets all Covid regulations. The facilities provided are spotless and regularly maintained.More

Whenever I wanted to order anything I had to work to flag down the server and he actively looked away from me as to pretend not to see me. After eating apps, lunch, drinks, and coffee there they said NO I could not sit in...their beach chairs even though it was late in the day. I gave it 2 stars because I did enjoy the fava bean dip and beet salad, but my partner and I definitely had stomach aches the next day and this was our only meal we ate that day.More

The food is quite good, the staff is kind but the very strenght of the place is the wondeful location: you have your dinner with the foot in the sand at sunset… just perfect

You can eat on the terrace or directly on the beach, plenty of choices on the menu. But they are understaffed, the waiting time is extreme, and a lot of confusion regarding the orders. Nothing offered, neither at the beginning nor at the end of...the meal.More

We ate her multiple times during our stay and enjoyed every time. It's laid back and very relaxed with great food and very reasonable prices.

Extremely slow service. Got sat at 9:15. Starters and salads arrived at 10. Main courses at 11. Starters were great. Main dishes were bad. Very overpriced. Not recommended.

Amazing food, lovely friendly service and gorgeous location! Baked feta was to die for and the man got the freshest sea bass available, delicious. Service is very laid back, as anyone would expect on a Greek Island, not rushing or hassling you - as some...of the other reviews stated... it isn't a fast food chain. Take tour time and enjoy the ambience.More

We had a family dinner at Nikos and Maria, looking for some seafood and fresh fish. The staff was very friendly although the service has not been very quick (place was rather full). We had a selection of grilled octopus, fried calamari and grilled local...fish. The food was overall below our expectations. The kids had pastas which were nice. We also got a bottle of wine which was definitely overpriced. I would suggest the place to families looking for some basic food but not to those looking for some well cooked seafood. They also have tables right on the beach that make the dinner a quite memorable and romantic experience.More

Bad bad service, we wait one hour only to have water. Poor guys who work there, they try to do their best running but the thing is they they are few. I mean the property should spend more money and have more guy to work....The restaurant was full, location amazing but please have more respect for people who work and eat thereMore

A great taverna with local food, tables on the beach or on the terrace. Really friendly service, we loved Sergio in particular!! Also a nice little bar next door to relax in a deckchair

Beach setting for sunset is truly wonderful. Food was of high quality with some modern takes on classic Greek food. Definitely worth going to and would go again. Only point to note is the service on the beach drops to being non existent once your...food is served. We wanted to order dessert and coffee but despite efforts we were ignored. We walked up to the main restaurant to pay so we could leave. Nobody noticed or stopped us. They really need more order takers to manage or work in clear sections.More

This restaurant is all about the gorgeous location, with tables and chairs right on the beach, perfectly positioned to watch the sunset. Unfortunately, they seemed very understaffed when we were there and the staff that they had were nice but useless. I ordered one of...the special fishes of the day ( red scorpion fish) and it arrived a full 20-30 minutes after my husband had finished eating his main dish. The waitress seemed unaware of the issue. When she asked us how everything was I told her I was still waiting for my main course ( which was quite expensive, btw) and she was surprised. We ordered a bottle of water but they only brought our wine. I reminded them about water and they finally brought it, without glasses! The managers never came to our table to apologize or try to make things right. This was our anniversary dinner but it was not much fun for us to eat dinner on our own, 30 minutes apart. My advice would be to stick with the basic dishes, not the fresh fish of day.More
