Axiotissa was a total delight. Very pleasant knowledgeable servers, pretty bougainvillea covered terrace, and the food was remarkable. Some of the clearest flavors I have had anywhere in Greece. There are interesting salads that go way beyond the normal offerings, lots of delicious sounding veggie dishes and outstanding
Organic meats from the chef’s family farm. We enjoyed a rich goat dish with rosemary, the goat having been slow roasted in parchment. There was a delicious warm chick pea salad with turmeric and saffron, lemon and excellent olive oil. My husband’s pork chops were some of the most flavorful pork we’ve ever had. Very good house wine. Prices are comparable to other tavernas for this food which is WAY above the norm.

... a collection of flavors and stories that we are always looking forward to experiencing. Its location, as is its sign at the street entrance is unassuming; the real treat is inside. This is the place where regulars of the island go for dinner every night, and for good reason. Starting with the nice calligraphy on the blackboard and ending up on your table, the daily specials never disappoint (I'll be dreaming about the fresh baked cheese and figs pies all winter).
Yiannis, the chef, crafts all his dishes with fresh and high quality, carefully selected ingredients, breaking out of stereotypes and, at the same time, honoring the local and regional recipes that fuel his inspiration. A collection of his thoughts, recipes and their stories is now published in his new book. The original Greek version is on display at the tavern.
The members of the staff led by Sofia have been the same for years, a cohesive group of very nice, interesting and honest people who know exactly how things work, and who work together and help each other as friends, not only as teammates. We can’t imagine Axiotissa without them, and we can’t imagine Naxos without Axiotissa.
We went there with an open mind and discovered delightful delicate flavors, and with an open heart, wonderful people, all with their fascinating stories.
And the delicious deserts are all homemade! Need we say more? :)

We visited Axiotissa with a family of 2 kids in August for dinner. We booked a table in advance as it was very crowded due the the high summer season.
The place itself is very nice, modern Greek decoration and authentic. The service was excellent, quick and simple. The food... we did not know what to choose from the menu as everything seemed delicious and it really was. One of the specialities is fig in the oven filled with graviera (gruyere)!!! The House rose wine was also delicious. I strongly recommend Axiotissa if you would like to eat very high quality food cooked the Greek way !
