“awesome fish restaurant”
Reviewed September 20, 2011

We stayed a week in Giardini Naxos and were delighted to find this restaurant. We enjoyded it so much we ate there twice during our stay, once on a thursday night and again on a saturday night and both times the restaurant was full. It is slightly pricey compared to other restaurants in the area, but the quality is by far superior to anything else you will go to in Naxos and if this resaurant was back home the prices would be much much more.

We were fortunate to have the table in the window closest to the sea which you can almost touch with a stretched out hand and also there was a full moon which set the scene parfectly. Worth booking in advance if you want to reserve a table at the front.

The owner presented us with a large platter upon which was a selection of the catch of the day - it was so so fresh and he certainly knows his stuff so we let him recommend both the food and the wine. We were not dissappointed on both counts. Absolutely superb food and wine. The staff were delightful and very skilled at preparing the fish at your table

I could not recommend this restaurant more highly. We want to go back to Sicily just so we can experience another fine dining experience at The Sea Sound.

“Nice seafood, also try their tiramisu”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

During our 7-day stay in Giardini Naxos, Sea Sound became our favorite local restaurant with nice view to the sea and delicious fish food.

Don't get me wrong, the place is not the cheapest in Giardini Naxos and the food is simple Sicilian food, but given that Giardini Naxos is full of mostly messy and crappy "menu turistico" places with stickers from various travel agencies recommending the restaurant in the front door, it was refreshing to see a place that both attempts to do its thing well and to an extent succeeds in doing so.

We especially enjoyed their tiramisu, which was masterfully built in distinct layers while still being as juicy and delicious as ever. Somehow they also always seemed to get the sweetest tasting melons in the city for the prosciutto & melon antipasto. :)

Even though it was high season (mid-August), we always managed to get decent tables without a reservation by showing up in the restaurant early before locals invaded it.

Even though there was plenty of staff, it was a bit difficult to get service at times when the place started to get crowded.

Sea Sound was recently mentioned in the Michelin Guide, which fortunately didn't (yet?) show in the prices. A couple eats here well for 100 euro.
