Waiting 35 minutes for warm cheese and grilled octopus...
I was alone, and my Greek neighbors arrived 20 minutes after me were served a long time before me.
Very cold wellcome, I understand they prefer large families, but it was late and the restaurant half empty
Very ordinary food you can get anywhere...DO NOT STOP

Located in the old town with tables in the "street". We have had some meals in our 3 1/2 week holiday in Greece and this was the 2nd worst. The chicken souvlaki I had was tasteless and dry. My daughter got her meal after the rest of us was finished. They simply forgot.The service was also slow, but friendly though. It could look nice when you see a restaurant in the street, but getting people "on" your table when passing by was not so cute.

Travelled to Naxos July 2013 having read some of the reviews about where to go and what to do in the evening.Walked up to the old sector near the port area and was spell bound by the beauty of the meandering alley ways and found Metaxy Mas. Fantastic setting outside and pleasant inside run by efficient but relaxed staff . Food good and fairly priced, wine though not brilliant. Great ambiance with a strong traditional feel. Paid something like £50 for decent meal for 4, composed 2 adults and two late teenage children.

If you want over the top friendly where everyone speaks English and treats you like a long lost relative (with a wad of cash), then go somewhere else. If you want good food and professional service, come here. The food was a bit uneven, with some items underseasoned or lacking punch, but other items such as the zucchini balls where mind blowing.

Can't understand why this isn't in the top 10. We ate here last night - healthy mixture of tourists and locals, a little off beaten track at the top of the old Market area. Food was frankly excellent although service a little slow.....who's in a hurry anyway. €30 for two including wine, so great value too. Typical Greek fare, served in quiet backstreet location. Avoid the tourist traps with views of the bay... Head into old Market next turn left and head up the hill toward castle.
