The old town is full of restaurant “designed” for tourists. Manolis is instead a pure and essential taverna where you can eat and drink under a very nice pergola. The food are good, prices reasonable and waiters are very nice and available. I cannot understand...More

How things can change in 12 months. This time last year when we ate here the garden was overgrown with vines and trees and almost part of your plate. It looked unkept and generally decrepit as well as being plagued by cats.. Against our better...More

The title about says it all. Not sure how it has been so highly rated. When we brought up an issue with the waitress she was downright rude and the other two were inattentive. You would think 3 wait staff for 4 tables would allow...More

We ate there multiple times during our stay in Naxos. Food is amazing and authentically Greek. I highly recommend the lamb dish and the honey feta. Will definitely be back. Really reasonable prices and great quality food.

Quite tricky to find but this garden/terrace is tranquil and has a great ambiance. The servers, Orvena and Maria are really helpful and friendly. The food is standard Greek taverna fare, but its good and the price is not bad at all. I’m very happy...More

We went to Manolis Garden twice during our stay in Naxos It’s not that easy to find, right at the end of Old Market Street – ask if you get lost! It’s situated in a garden / courtyard with overhanging vines – a lovely setting,...More
