We really enjoyed the food in Tzi Tzi! We had a plate of sea food which was a very good companion for our drinks, a cool salad and a traditional pie which was the "must" plate! The view is simply breath-taking...A balcony of heaven overlooking the Aegean...We took only 3 plates but I will never forget the experience of having eaten there...If we hopefully return in Donoussa Island some day, we will definitely visit this taverna again! If you fancy original greek food, don't forget to order the pie!

Had been recommended this place by some friends. My original plan was to walk to Mersini the downtown the beach at Livadi before climbing back up for some post swim goodies. Weather was too hot to walk so I took the caique to the beach (stunning, without beach bars, hordes of screaming children or trinket sellers) and then walked up the path to Tzi Tzi. Before I even sat at the table I was given some water as it was very hot and the uphill climb took it out of me. This was swiftly followed by a glass of chilled rose. Greek salad wih mizithra cheese was very good as was the Naxos sausage with honey mustard sauce. Finished off with mizithra doused in honey & cinnamon and a glass of rakomelo (perfect digestif). As the next bus wasn't till 10.40 they very kindly called me a cab back to Stavros. Cannot wait to go again!

It takes about 45 minutes to walk from Stavros to Mersini and then another 20 minutes to descend to Livadi, one of the best beaches in the area (do not miss to visit the spring on your way there).
After spending a day at this wonderful beach we stopped at this secluded tavern on our way back to the hotel. From the tavern's balcony you probably have the best view I have ever experienced anywhere in the world. A very friendly owner described the menu and told us about two of the special dishes of the day. The food was extremely tasty and well presented. We had a Greek salad, courgette balls, a cuttlefish and a chicken in cream sauce. All the time we were surrounded by cats and several very loud roosters.
Walking back to Stavros helped us digest the enormous amount of food that we ate there.
The price was reasonable.

If you want the pleasures of a gastronomic experience, at normal taverna prices, with a remarkable view over the Aegean to Amorgos, not far from a natural spring and above a beautiful beach... Tzi Tzi is a real find! We had just excellent grilled chicken in rosemary reduction, feta and mint pies, delicate salads... all the meat is fresh from Naxos and excellent quality. The service is intelligent and kind! I went three times while in Donousa, and was delighted each time. Thank you!

Note: Tzi tzi is located about ten minutes by taxi from the main port of Stavros, and the journey is worth every penny (if you go as a group, the cost is negligible: we paid 7 EUR o/w, so split by five we paid about a Euro each). Or else you can do the spectacular walk to Livadi and taxi back.
