Description: With an ambiance that emulates the relaxed, opulent experience of dining on the island of nAXOS, the attentive service and high-quality fare offered here is a true delight. Each dish on Sarris menu is considered a specialty, but the fresh daily Thalassina (seafood) is most popular among their loyal patronage. Indulge in fish-free delicacies, our famous chicken souvlaki and the traditional baked lamb with ouzo, tomatoes, and Kefalotiri cheese . Most importantly, Sarris Taverna lives up to its Aegean namesake memorable taste."

“Just a bad day?”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

At lunch today we were welcomed by a nice and smiling waitress who took our order. Starters were ok, a mixed platter of grecian spreads: tzatziki, melitzanosalata and tirokafteri. They were all very good. Then we got our Naxos salad which was ok. The waitress finished her shift and another guy took over. He completely forgot our order and I had to go up and remind him of my chicken special, which wasn't special at all. Worst chips in Naxos, oily and soft, not crispy. The bill came with free lemon yogurth, which was unexpected and refreshing. I was okay with the food but annoyed at the careless service and ... where was the receipt? Crisis crisis crisis.... if nobody pays for the taxes...

“Probably the most memorable one”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

The location is nothing special. It's one block away from the waterfront so you can't see the ocean and one of the busiest walkways goes right past it. Regardless of this it's a nice cozy place, and well worth a visit. We heard (and know) Finns aren't all too common on Naxos so we were pleasantly surprised to find out our waiter had a Finnish friend. He couldn't speak Finnish but we didn't even want that. He did surprise us by singing a part of a Finnish song his friend had sent him - and he did it very well! Well, that covers the memorable portion.

The food was good, there was plenty of it and the price was pretty much the same as anywhere on the island. We ate in so many different places and had so many excellent meals that I really have to give them just 4 stars. Not because we had anything to complain, but mostly because none of the dishes we tasted were "best" of whatever it was on our trip. Then again, they were very close and we walked away happy. If I could give 4 and half, I would.

(if you are curious and want to repeat his feat, feel free to give it a try:
I doubt you'll do as well as he did. :) )
