About
"O Giorgis" is a family run restaurant in the picturesque village of Melanes. The view from the restaurant to the green valley opposite is breathtaking. The village of Melanes is 7km from the town of Chora and 4km away from "Flerio", the place where the "Kouros" of Melanes was found. Giorgis Xenakis and Marina along with their children run the restaurant which is open every single day of the year. There are a lot of grilled meat options to choose from but a lot of meat cooked in casserole too. Giorgis' signature dish, as a lot of people call it, is the rooster in tomato sauce served with bugatini type pasta. Nevertheless, we suggest choosing different dishes that you can share to taste more

We weren’t sure what to order, and our wonderful server steered us towards their house specialties. I had the stuffed pork which was the most delicious meat I have ever tasted! The house made wine was delicious, but strong! One glass will be enough... What...More

Very lovely staff and food We had the lamp in a pot with fried potatoes (fries lol) which was delicious but what really made the difference was the personal touch of service that you can only really get from a family run restaurant.

They serve a lot of food. It was fine. The view is beautiful, but the food is nothing extraordinary. It certainly is not worth the trek to Melanes. Melanes is a sad and gritty town and should be avoided. There are so many other sweet...More

This review is an insult to our village and should be removed by the TripAdvisor page manager.

Traditional Greek tavern setting in a mountainous village of NAXOS. Excellent meat variety and local products. Friendly service and very reasonable prices. Not to be missed.
