We stayed at Faros Villas for four nights and ate all dinners and most lunches at the adjacent restaurant -- there was no reason to go elsewhere! Mama's recipes and cooking are outstanding. Octopus, lamb, veal, pork, moussaka, grilled vegetables, salads, starters -- everything was delicious. Nice carafes of wine. Reasonable prices, kind people.

Stayed in the excellent Faros Villa and ate at the adjoining Faros restaurant which is run by the same family. Best meals we had during our 3 week island hopping. Everything very fresh and cooked superbly by the lady of the house. Very good service with a nice touch of humour. It's worth the journey down from Naxos Town and... More

We stayed at Faros Villa and didn't have a car so their restaurant, Faros tou Alykou was going to be our source of sustenance. Based on the positive reviews we read before picking the hotel we knew it would be good but omg, so good!! The mom of the family that owns the property (hotel and restaurant) is the main... More

We stayed at Faros Villa and had 2 days to try most of the dishes of the Taverna. It is the best food we had in Naxos. Service is lovely and the place is beautiful. The beach in front of it as very nice!

We ate here most meals when staying at Faros Villa. The food is great and amazing value - we had a whole range of meat, fish and vegetable dishes and all were very tasty. The service is also very good and friendly.

As we spent more than a week at the Faros Villa hotel, we ate almost all the time at the Faros Tavern, which is run by the same family. We had several lunches and dinners at the tavern, and the food was always fresh and tasty, with a lot of choice (after more than a week, we never felt bored... More

It was a nice surprise for us to have found a good tavern, so close to a wild and beautiful beach, where we went for swimming. Good food and friendly people made our lunch a very good and relaxing moment.

The restaurant had very good Greek dishes. We enjoyed it very much. It was very nice eating near the beach. They were also very nice and accommodating.

We stayed at Faros Hotel (a must if your thinking of visiting Naxos) so had to try the restaurant. Brilliant food, and atmosphere. Service, quality and prices all very good. Well worth a visit.

We had an absolutely miserable experience today at lunch. We visited Faris as a family. The restaurant was busy but not overly crowded. The service was simply horrible. We had to wave at the waiters several times to get someone to come over and take our order. That should have been a huge red flag. The food never came... we... More

Dear Joseph D, thank you for your review, obviously you have the right to complain for the delay and we feel really sorry about that. I hope we could have a second change when you are back on Naxos. If we are allowed to apologize, we can say that in the middle of August, the most crowded period if there... More

The base is pure and delicious Naxian products to prepare our dishes starting with fresh vegetables and olive oil, from our own garden! Fresh goat and lamp meat from our neighbor's farm and fresh fish and octopus on the grill! Plenty of local drinks and homemade sweets complete your Greek gastronomic experience! Located right on the enge of the Cedar forest on the southwest side of the island. We are open from noon serving garden fresh salands, delicious starters, home made cheese, traditional dishes, fresh fish and much more Naxian food! COME AND EXPERIENCE NAXOS FOOD AND HOSPITALITY AT IT'S BEST!
