“Yummy Mousaka!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

We were looking for something slightly different to eat. We came to tripadvisor and saw that Vassilis had a good write up. In Naxos the food is a bit hit and miss so we wanted something tasty and felt we should trust the reviews this place got. It was so lovely here. We sat outside in the archway. It was cosy and we weren't in a rush and they let us drink wine until we were ready to order. I had the mousaka and my husband got the rabbit stew. It was delicious! I ate every bite! And the stew was so good. It was like home-cooking. YUM! The staff were very friendly and the restaurant clean and cosy. A definite reccomend!

“Naxos's Delicious! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

We've been in Vassilis with our friends and kids (from 1 to 7 years). Very good service. Everything we took was very tasty, especially octopus salad-probably the best I've tried in Greece. Next time we visit Naxos, we'll go to Vassilis for sure:)

“Wonderful Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

We had a wonderful dinner here with friends. A group of 11 people were easily catered for and we all had an excellent meal. This place has great service and a terrific atmosphere. An extensive menu including traditional dishes, and delicious seafood meals.
We stayed on Naxos for 18 nights and unfortunately only discovered this restaurant in the old market on the last night, otherwise we would have dined more than once. Definitely go back.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014 via mobile

Delicious, fresh food, and welcoming for our toddler. I thought it might be hard to find but it is just inside the old town and there's a map in the entrance of the old town. No sea views but a real gem.

“SINCE 1951”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

It's a really nice restaurant near the pier in Naxos Chora. We
always have some dinners here when se spend our holidays on the island.
Open till night they offer a wide variety of typical greek food.
My boyfriend had an enormous stuffed squid served with cucumbers salad and fried famous Nasso potatoes. I had a grilled swordfish fillet with coleslaw, tomatoes and boiled potatoes.
We enjoyed our meal a lot and we really appreciate the fresh and really sweet fruit salad they offer us for free.
Outside tables are located in a fascinating alley and in a flowers coloured courtyard.
Very low prices: 1 beer, 1 small bottle of water, 2 main dishes € 27,50.
Nice service.
