Nikos Taverna


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2019 Winner

Location and contact

Family taverna since 1970 The traditional tavern Nikos, which is located in one of the most central spots of Chora of Naxos, has a long tradition on what we call “good food” and is waiting to introduce you some of the most famous Greek dishes. Its cuisine is based on dishes that take us back to our childhood… to those delicacies we would try in the home of our mom, our grandma, a classical Greek housewife. Among a wide variety of cooked meals that are prepared on daily basis, you can taste pastitsio (macaroni pie), mousaka, lamb in lemon sauce, rabbit stew, and beef stew. Wonderful flavors, traditional way of preparation, but above all fresh local products of excellent quality are what ensure

Staff were friendly and attentive. The food was amazing - the best we had while visiting Naxos. Fresh and tasted authentic. Not far from the Port. Menu had plenty of variety as well as authentic Greek food.

We had great traditional food, quality straight up traditional meals. Atmosphere plain, as of old fashioned and not aiming for trendy.

My husband and I ate here last night. The food was really good. We started off with a bottle of chardonnary and their cheese croquettes. They give you 4 large croquettes. They are a bit rich so we were only able to eat one each,...More
