The old town in Naxos is a full of romantic taverns, located in the labyrinth of narrow ancient streets. One of the oldest is Vassilis. It is a mixture of a delicious greek food and friendly staff in very nice and traditional place.

I visited this taverna in October with my husband and was very impressed. The taverna is very pretty on the outside and cosy and intimate inside. It was busy with a relaxed atmosphere and the food was out of this world and reasonably priced. I had the best lamb kleftiko ever and I have tasted quite a few whilst living... More

Nice taverna in the old part of town. Good food for reasonable prices, but nothing special. A solid choice overall.

We actually meant to go to another restaurant but sat down here and realized it looked really great so we stayed. It was excellent. I remember the food being delicious and really enjoying the atmosphere. Naxos is magical. This was a great place for dinner - I would highly recommend it. Ask what they recommend - I can't remember the... More

Our favourite restaurant! Wonderful fish dishes consistently hit the spot together with traditional greek dishes which were all freshly prepared. The restaurant is situated near the entrance to the old market place near to the port. If you don't get there before eight you may have to wait a little for a table. Whilst the restaurant appears to be within... More

The restaurant seems geared to please first-time tourists, who know little about the quality of Greek cooking. They will probably not be disappointed with what they get.The atmosphere is relaxed and the cuisine is authentically Mediterranean.The staff are attentive and friendly, but the food served fails to rise much above mediocrity. It was difficult to believe that the swordfish I... More

Food was good and the location is great in the Old Market, service was good. Usually Greek restaurants offer some kind of dessert or aperitif at the end of the meal, but Vassilis doesn't bother. Their business must be good enough without adding this extra little touch for their guests, a little disappointing.
