“A restaurant to avoid at all costs”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2010

We made the mistake of trying this restaurant on our second night in Naxos. Unfortunately it is a tourist trap of the worst kind. We ordered the "Flamingo special" (a chicken dish) and the "Naxos Special" (a pork dish). We couldn't make out if the poor animals that landed in our stews died of disease or old age. They even managed to destroy the potatoes, which Naxos is famous for, and it is the only restaurant during our whole stay in Naxos that served us stale bread (bread being something else the Naxians are normally very good at). When we complained, the manager alluded that we had a bad sex life and were therefore taking it out on the food. They still charged us for everyrthing despite some of our dishes being completely untouched. This place really takes its customers for idiots. Naxos has plenty of wonderful restaurants that really take pride in what they do but Flamingo restaurant is not one of them. Avoid it.

“gone from bad to worse”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2009

we where here in aug.2008.We waited one hour and fifteen minutes for the starters. When we asked for the food we where only told that is coming. There was not many people in the restaurant that evening. After spending two hours eating and waiting we asked for the bill and had too wait for more than half and hour. I got a hold of one of the waiters, asking him about our bill and he then asked me why we had such a hurry. we had to remember we where on holiday. I then said too him that we only had 14 days. There are many, many better restaurants in Naxos than this one.
