“Wonderful homemade food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

The first thing we realized when we visited this restaurant, was the friendly environment. The people who work there are amazing, especially that beautiful blonde lovely girl with the amazing British accent.

The place was almost full, but the service was fast. The other good thing is that the food was very tasty. We had there the best spaghetti Bolognese, that I've ever had in a restaurant. It was not Greek style Bolognese! We had also a rib-eye steak on the bone, cooked medium as we ordered and it was good.

We tried also the Greek salad and the tzatziki which was really good.

I don't remember exactly the bill, but it was very reasonable for what they offered and the quality of the food which seem to be like homemade.

If you go to Naxos, you definitely have to visit that place.

“Wonderful dinner and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

We took the recommendation of Captain George to eat here on our first night in Naxos. It was GREAT. The food was delicious and authentic (and a lot of food for your money!). We spent the evening talking with our waitress, Nikki, who was so kind to us and gave us lots of advice about our trip in Naxos. She was very personable and helped make our dinner easily #1 of our entire Greece trip. We would definitely recommend anyone to eat here!

“The only thing that tops their food-- is the service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

What a great experience! Step one street back from the water and you step into a different world! The food was by far the best we've had and our server was fantastic. She gave us wonderful food recommendations and even suggest sights we visit during our stay in Naxos.

“Excellent restaurant fantastic value yet right in the centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

We stumbled across this restaurant. Run by a wonderful young Greek couple. Really good Greek food with excellent wines and at very good prices. Lovely setting with plenty of space outside but not noisy. At the ferry terminal end of the waterfront one road behind the main drag near the old market. Well worth looking for it and the best restaurant we have found in Naxos by a wide margin. Just make an effort and find it. You will not be disappointed. Great place.

“My best meal in Greece”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014 via mobile

Pros: they make a feta in tomato sauce that we amazing and the portions are just right. I had a chicken in a mustard la creme that you must have! They even made a special request for us that was very much appreciated. The whole family was great and we went twice. Service great and was the best meals in Greece! Thank you to this great family and serving the best food in Naxos.
