This was supposedly reviewed in the New York Times years ago, making it an overnight success, even though it has apparently been in business for about a hundred years. This was still a great, solid restaurant that was unaffected by the hype, to the extent...More

We stumbled upon this great old taverna, half by accident, having seen a recommendation in Dieter Graf's walking in Naxos guidebook. It was busy- always a good sign, and we sat inside, watching the world pass by. The menu is typical of the town, but...More

We were trying to go to another place for lunch but it was closed, and we stumbled upon this place! The moussaka was great as were the grape vines & spaghetti. Our waiter was attentive & the gentleman inside the restaurant was welcoming and polite!

The quality of the food was average. There was nothing special on taste, but the prices were way above average.

We found Lucullus in the old town after walking up and down hundreds of steps. An old-style, family-run restaurant, it was immediately appealing. The owner greeted us and made us welcome. Then came the food - fresh ingredients, all delicious. And the best house wine...More

Returned a year later and thought that the food was not quite up to their standard of previous years. We had similar dishes ti previous years too. The waiters are still VERY friendly. The surroundings and music are great as in previous visits
