“Lovely first dinner night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014

My husband had fried cheese and I grilled squid as a starter which both were delicious. Our main course was a pizza and moussaka. I wish I could have looked over the chef's shoulder how he made this moussaka.

“Great from start to finish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2014

My party of four ate wonderfully at the taverna. Run by a very personable older woman, the restaurant dazzled. Great Greek salad with the finest Feta ground in, literally, a mountain on top of really fresh vegetables. Graviera was among the best of the best on the island known for graviera. I had the mixed lamb and beef - almost kefted - but it was so good. The house wine was excellent and, of course, they offered great desserts. My companions were all very satisfied and we all offered our compliments to the chef, who worked like a Trojan the entire night. Great experience highly recommended.

“Authentic Greek food, loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

Very busy restaurant, so you may have to wait for a table after 8pm, but definitely worth waiting. The welcome was warm and friendly, the food tasted great, was fresh,very high quality and very reasonable priced. Our favorites- soudzoukakia, lamb in lemon sauce, kalamari- are absoutely heavenly dishes. Complementary to the food, they sorted us out with wine free of charge! Wish we found this place earlier!

“Greek Family taverna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

Once again I was remembered in a Naxos taverna, but this time because I did not praise their 3-meat Kleftiko in the review that followed my visit 11 months ago. The Meltemi was as friendly as the previous time, but this time I had the lemon-lamb dish, so as to give them a good chance of a top score! I was not disappointed in it, and can report an excellent, most enjoyable meal, in good traditional taverna surroundings, and with good service.
