Description: "The Greek" first opened its doors in 2008 and is a Greek company. Offers the simplicity of traditional Greek food with local products and daily freshly prepared dishes. Our secret is that we have the kitchen mom Katerina who cooks with love and taste traditional recipes naxiwtikes. The family's father Michael, having years of experience in catering, created "The Greek" which in course passed into the hands of his son, John. Children Argiro, John, Maria and Manolis will care for the warm reception and correct service making you feel at home. The restaurant has a garden that is a perfect setting to enjoy your meal. When you visit Naxos, do not hesitate to visit us: will become your favorite part.

“Great for live music!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

This restaurant serves good traditional fare, in a cozy setting. They provide "free" live music (but there is a "cover charge" for bread and olives--though minimal fee and worth it). The wine options are good.

“No-fuss traditional Greek food”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

My husband and I passed by Naxos a week ago and went to this place three days in a roll because of the tasty food. The restaurant is one minute from the main tourist drag which means peace & quiet from the trap touts. Another plus is you can see some of the daily dishes on display, thus avoiding ordering something disappointing. Bon apetit!

“Too self-consciously clichéd 'Greek'”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

The food was of average quality, although good value, with large helpings. The live music was enjoyable, but the plate smashing display seemed a self-consciously stereotypical attempt to entertain tourists and ended up detracting from the whole experience by going on for too long. The restaurant didn't live up to our expectations, which were based on its Tripadvisor rating.

“Interesting owner, food good”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

My husband and I stopped here on a whim when we were hungry and strolling around town. Michael the owner served us when we came in. He told us he was from Montreal and his father was Greek. He said the restaurant was rated #1 on tripadvisor- I see he's # 2 now. We had a lunch of Greek salad and spicy sausage and potatoes. I really liked the texture and flavor of the sausages and they were in a sauce of tomatoes , onions, and peppers- the potatoes tasted of garlic. He served us free watermelon and a taste of his homemade wine. The watermelon was sweet and refreshing, the wine was not my favorite. He introduced us to his son and showed us some photos of his ancestors as we were leaving and told us to come back for the Greek music in the evening. Unfortunately we never made it back. Maybe next time?
