We chose here by tripadvisor reference. Service and interaction was quite nice. But the food was not as great as the similar places. I dont know why but although the restaurant was almost empty they gave us a table that we did not choose.

Great stop for lunch. Open after 3 pm! The car pacco fish was amazing. Pasta with clams and shrimp wasn't so good because the fish was overcooked. Not complaining though. Great price. Will go again.

Lovely atmosphere! The choice to sit within the main restaurant on the road or in a little seating area right by the sea. The grilled king prawns were delicious and served with salad and potato. There was plenty of bread served as well. The linguine with prawn, clams and mint was delicious and tasted very fresh. Great value - 40euros... More

We loved the fish we ate, the salad was fresh and the potatoes nicely cooked. Good house wine and a sinful chocolate dessert.

We were staying close by and the 15 minute walk to the restaurant next to the sea was part of the pleasure. On night 1 we ate inside and night 2 we ate across the little street by the water. The view especially at night was gorgeous, the service was wonderful. And the food, I can only say, I had... More

We looked on trip advisor for a decent place to eat and read this place was highly rated and was very surprised to find the service was slow even though it was not that busy as the three waiters seemed more interested in talking to each other and not very friendly. The Food was nice but nothing special.

Nice restaurant, right on the sea front in Giardini Naxos. The food is mainly ethnic food: Greek, portugese, and other. The food is very tasty and the service is excellent. Be prepared you are sitting on the side-walk. Dinner starts at 7:30 pm. The kitchen opens at this time. Not the North American time for dinner!

A lovely quaint restaurant situated by the sea front. Slightly quirky food selection but very tasty with pleasant staff. We ate there two or three times so proves the food was delicious !!!
