We searched TA for a nice restaurant and were so satisfied here! The setting is stunning in the back which is outdoors with plenty of plants and lights.

The food is very reasonably priced but at very high quality. The marinated octopus was just fantastic - so delicious! The chicken and beef dishes were also excellent with great sides. And the desserts were to die for!

Highly recommend

It’s amazing walking on the streets in Parikia and allowing yourself to be dragged along by the crowd in search of stores, restaurants, cafees. This is how we discovered the Apollon Garden Restaurant. We were walking around when we saw an open door with a beautiful garden inside. The waiter kindly invited us to have a look at the menu. We decided to go in and have a look at the place: stunning! This had to be absolutely THE restaurant for our first dinner in Parikia. We ordered a Moussaka, a veal stew and eggplants in tomato sauce topped with gruyere cheese, and as a side dish potatoes with greek sauce. The dinner was combined with a really tasty and flavoured red wine from Paros. For dessert we chose the typical orange cake with cinnamon. We were so happy and satisfied from this dinner that we decided to return to the Apollon Garden restaurant for our last dinner. What better place to say goodbye to Paros! This time we ordered a mixed grill with chicken, homemade burgers, veal, sausages and lamb. The barbecue was served with mashed potatoes, grilled vegetables and rice: everything was delicious! 
I would like to spend some words on our waiter. Unfortunately we don’t know his name but he was such a good guy, passionate towards his job, polite, professional and very calm. He also taught us some greek words (for example γεια μας which means cheers!). I hope to see the whole staff and taste the original greek cuisine again one day in our next trip to Paros. You guys will be one of the good reasons to come back. Good luck!

What a great looking place...some ragged court yard, luckily not restored to death but left kind of rough. There are loads of lots of plants and plantations and nice simple typically Greek tables and chairs everywhere. The restaurant is divided into three different areas, one in the front, one next to it a little elevated by three steps and one hidden in the back. Except for a range of rather horrible and badly painted "art" on the wall of the elevated terrace the ambiance is quite harmonious and well done.
Service: good. The staff are trained staff and not just seasonal workers, so it seems.
Food: ok but not exceptional even though prices are quite a bit higher than anywhere else.
One would expect a bit more....quite a bit more actually.

A pity really. This place could be dynamite!

Lovely little restaurant hidden in the back streets of Parikia. We enjoyed a meal of Greek salad, haloumi, mushroom risotto, pork with rosemary sauce and chicken. Nice food. Pork was over cooked but lovely flavour. Good service
