Description: Elda's kitchen has broken out of the big restaurant style offering a smaller variety of inventive and inspired preparations through the use of fresh local ingredients. Many will be pleased that some items made popular at Open Garden the previews years made their way through to the brand new menu. The menu features traditional homemade Greek appetizer & casserole dishes with a twist, seasonal & local vegetables as well as seafood, poultry and steaks prepared "a la plancha" - a method of cooking quickly on heavy steel using little or no fats.This method enhances the flavors and textures of the freshest, well seasoned ingredients. Subtle tastes and all time classic comfort food, all served with a smile!!Open Garden Restaurant & Lounge, Naoussa, Paros, Greece / Open from April to October / Everyday 7pm - 1am.

“just ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

It seemed a little strange that we didn't find a greek menu posted in the entrance (only in english and french), after all we are in Greece, right?
Anyway, we gave it a try since we liked the garden and decoration. But the food was simply ok, nothing much to say the least... Polite service, a bit slow though...
We both had the lasagne but mine were almost raw (not al dente...) and flavorless. I left half of it and the waiter asked me how was it, but when I told him it wasn't cooked so well he didn't seem to bother much. Actually he didn't say a thing...

“Good French style food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Nice and friendly, romantic, good food, good wine, stiff prices! Only went once this time...
Good and varied dishes that you don't find in other Paros restaurants, though. Worth a visit. Mostly couples and foreigners, not many Greeks at all.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Some of the best food that we have had whilst being in Greece. The garden location is calm and relaxing. The service was friendly and quick. Went with his recommendations - superb.
Octopus was very nice as was the fish soup. Form main, we had baked fish and fish skewers. Both were fantastic. Lots of reasonably priced wine.
Dessert was the most wonderful chocolate tart. Seriously good.
Had a great evenning here. Excellent.
