Food was not too bad but didn't taste fresh... I think the owner was drunk and she behaved rather badly in my opinion. Was a bit embarrassing. The traditional dessert couldn't rescue the bad feeling we had there.

You are spoiled for choice in Naxos for restaurants but this place really stood out. The food was incredible and the staff were lovely. It was so good that we went there twice after sampling other restaurants in the area.. The food quality was just miles ahead of everywhere else. The decor was lovely and it was reasonably prices.

Great atmosphere. The Danish host were great, giving us trip tips, and which food we should try. Forget about the pushy host entry, she is just nice and very easy to talk to. The steak with gorgonzola sause was the best ever. And as I can see on thes TripAdvisor, any other sause is just great.

We enjoyed our meal here. The pizzas were huge! It was a shame that the hostess (who spoke very good English, and I suspect a number of other languages too) was continually trying to upsell extra dishes.

Had a lovely dinner in the courtyard of this restaurant. Staff were very friendly, pasta dishes were very tasty and the local wine was delicious. Well Done!
