This place is in old town, Naxos. If we weren't told to go to this place, we might not have found the old town which is definitely worth getting lost in. My fiance and i got a seat at Vassilis in the alley. Alleys in Naxos are not like alleys in NY. This alley was pretty, and flowered, and open,... More

Great spot, away for the touristy harbour front - tucked away in Old Town. Easy to find if you walk up the alley with the sign for Old Market and turn right. Great food and even better atmosphere out the back in a little courtyard. They go the extra mile as the bread is not just plain bread, it has... More

I had the best pasta marinara in 2012. Been in 2013. In 2016 restaurant has the same high standards, clean toilets, helpful and discreet service but i think chef became bored. Make no mistake, food is very nice but i would like to see some inspired recipes and not only top sellers like souvlaki etc.

We visit this restaurant every year. We are never disappointed, the food is locally sourced and cooked to perfection. The family run restaurant is set in the old market area of Naxos, it's full of character and there is an attractive outside area for Alfresco dining if that is your preference.

Lovely setting in the garden in the old town. Family run, very friendly and efficient staff. Food was excellent, typically local produce. Go for the traditional dishes, they are excellent!

Saw that this restaurant served Rabbit so dropped in for dinner. Cute alley way dining and good service. Ordered the summer salad and the roast rabbit. The rabbit was excellent but the salad lacked taste, possibly some pear or an interesting dressing. Enjoyed the evening and couldn't fault the service. Recommended.

Thank you for your review. The salad needs olive oil and balsamic vinegar to really bring it to life, we prefer to give the customer the choice of adding the dressing. Thank you. More

Visited june 2016, in the late evening this lovely family owned restaurant in Naxos old town. The restaurant was pretty busy but service was efficient and welcoming. We had greek meatballs and octopus salad, both were very good. The venue and atmosphere are beautiful and price range is average in Naxos, so affordable. The fried bread was brought to the... More

Thank you for your nice review. Yes, the bread is usually offered instead of the service charge, maybe we should ask the customers if they want bread or not. Thank you. More

I ordered meatballs with french fries. Simple dish, I know. It was really tasty, can't complain about anything. Feels like higher quality restaurant with calmer athmosphere compared to e.g. the ones near the port. Still, the price is not high. Service was good.

If you are looking for an restaurant that isn't on the harbour and has great food then this is a choice for you. Located at the bottom of the old town as you just leave the market street. You can eat either in the courtyard on inside. The courtyard is very quite. The owner took my reservation the day before... More
