Food, service, atmosphere and prices, excellent! Have been visiting Greece for more than 25 years so feel qualified to say that the moussaka is authentic and delicious. No fancy spices ! Observed some fellow diners with the seafood sharing plate, very impressive. Just make sure...More

We stumbled across this little Gem when looking for the Apostoli Taverna that happened to be closed when we found it . We had eaten there back in 2014 and absolutely loved it back then and wanted to go back but alas we couldn’t and...More

Lucullus is a very cosy restaurant with a very good atmosphere. We had a good meal, with a Kitron, a liqueur, to complete the meal.

Traditional tavern tucked away. The food is really good and ambience great. Only disappointment was that in September there were no local musicians playing.

We stopped in for a late lunch and were not disappointed. Starting with fresh goat cheese appetizer, we had chicken souvlaki and grilled octopus. Both extremely generous portions and scrumptious. Will certainly be back next time we're visiting Naxos.

It was our first day in Naxos and we were quite hungry after all the traveling. We walked by Lucullus and it smelled great so we walked on in. Turns out restaurants close early around here when it’s off season. When the cook overheard the...More

Didn't have much time before attending a Greek music festival in the old castle. Ordered two starters. The peppers, tomatoes with grilled haloumi cheese, was excellent. The mussels in a tomatoe, feta and ouzo sauce could have been to die for except the mussels were...More
