I have been to this restaurant a few times, the food and service were great every time. It combines really fresh food and local specialities from Naxos. The menu was large and the food was well presented. I enjoyed all dishes..The house wine was amazing, it had a mildly fruity taste. The service was excellent, very friendly and efficient. A very good choice.

Very relaxing environment, friendly people and excellent food! I had traditional giouvetsi! It was delicious! Beef was so soft that was melting in my mouth!

We dined at Capriccio a few times whilst in Naxos for the mere fact that the food was tasty very fresh and well cooked. The service was spot on, Yorgos is great. You have to try the caramelized octopus! My husband had it on the first night, and it was cooked to perfection, it maintained the slight springiness you should expect from fresh octopus, lightly caramelized adding a touch of sweetness that compliments the saltiness of the octopus perfectly. I had a traditional moussaka. It was the third one i had had in Greece, and the best one! Great place highly recommended!

Just what do you say about a restaurant that serves up a Greek Salad with Feta cheese, only to have the Feta completely coated in RAW CURRY POWDER, then to have the restaurant staff claim it is the herb Oregano ? True, the greenery of the salad did have some dried Oregano, but all of the cheese to be absolutely smothered in curry powder ( a quite distinctive aroma and recognizably different of course) was quite bizarre. Up to this point the meal had been going well, but we have been coming to Greece , on and off for 20+ years and have never experienced anything like this.
I have quite a bit of catering experience, and we were hugely disappointing. Indeed we wondered if it was some sort of joke, or maybe the chef was overworked- although we were the only customers, or maybe the chef was a little eccentric in a supposedly creative way.
It was embarrassing for us to complain, something we are not good at, and having to argue about an obvious problem spoiled our evening.
We both unwell later that night
Suggest you avoid - wish we had.

Dear Sir,
Making a complete description of the meal you had at our restaurant we‘ll prove how wrong you are. Indeed you visited us and the feta cheese was coated in oregano (it was oregano, not curry). But you might have selective memory so we have to remind you some details. You forgot to mention (probably on purpose) that: 1) The waiter asked you if you want him to replace the salad for free even if you had eaten more than the half 2) The waiter brought you a plate with another feta cheese portion. 3) You also ate lamp’s chops with olive paste and thyme sauce, but you thought that the olive paste was mushrooms!!! (You claimed in your review that you are experienced in catering!) 4) You declined to offer you any dessert of your choice from our menu, after that we offered you local liqueur. 5) You didn’t mention anything about the size of the portions, the other flavors (except from the feta you didn’t like) and the quality of the ingredients. So the only “bizarre” during your meal was your behavior that’s why we return you this title. We feel sorry for your review, we think that it is at least unfair, especially for a restaurant which really tried to please you and make you feel comfortable, as we always do with our customers.

with appreciation,

Capriccio Restaurant
