“Insincere Host, Average Food, Waited 30 mins for the Bill”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

The host for this restaurant was very polite to us as we entered the restaurant, however we were soon to find out that the host's light-hearted banter and jovial conversation turned out to be well rehearsed lines, as she greeted every customer with the exact same conversational lines. Once we were seated, the service dropped off significantly. It seemed to us that once we were seated and eating, they had 'got our money' and didn't care in the slightest. The host's friendly and jovial conversation soon became clipped and borderline rude - much to our astonishment!

The food which was talked up by the host was only very average. We could've done a lot better elsewhere.

The absolute lowlight was waiting 30 mins for the bill after we had asked for it, and were all but ignored by not only the host, but other staff.

Do yourself a favour - instead of dining in here, take the short walk to the Naxos Beach restaurants where the service is warm and sincere and the quality of food and prices are well worth it!

“Probably best stick to the Greek food on the menu”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

My girlfriend and I had Seafood Risotto (me) and Prawn spaghetti(her). Both dishes turned up lukewarm and both had this horrible yellowish orange sludge type sauce on top. To add to the disappointment , i had a funny feeling that my risotto rice was just rice. We didn't complain as both of us ate late and were starving

The wine and service were lovely and it did seem to be busy all the time so maybe stick to Greek food here.

“A decent dinner”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

The service was good until they got slammed- then we were forgotten. Try the various risottos and fish dishes, they are very good! I might suggest NOT to order anything fried--- the frying oil was rancid/old and ruined the calamari. I hope the chef will "change out" his oil more frequently. Enjoy!

“Delectable!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

Our dinner at this restaurant was great, from the friendly service to the pride they take in their freshly prepared meals.
The location on the main promenade is nice with views back to town and across the water.
The stuffed squid is delectable!

“Rated 25 of 64 as it should be.”
Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

Service was indifferent from greeting to end. They didn't have what we wanted and the fish and shrimp dish they suggested was just ok. This was the only restaurant we ate at along the walk in the port and there are others which are much better. We stayed 7 nights in Naxos which was wonderful. Try the restaurants overlooking the walkway from above accessed from the street behind. They are much better.
