Great location with fantastic view into the potamia-valley. It is a very authentic Greek tavern without the „tourist“ touch that most of the restaurants on the west coast have.
The food is great; made with homegrown ingredients.
Great as a finishing point after a hike through the potamia valley.

We came for dinner at O Vasilis after a windswept day on Naxos island, exploring mountain villages and tasting local food. We had read rave reviews about this unassuming cafe and were not disappointed. In the simple dining area, a banquet of local dishes appeared from the kitchen. Try the zucchini balls and Vasilis salad, full of freshly-cooked local vegetables including tomatoes, potatoes, green beans and beetroot. Visiting o Vasilis gave us an insight into a more traditional way of life on Naxos..definitely worth the extra miles to find Melanes.

We have visited O Vasilis on our way back from Kouros, which was a 15 minute drive and we really enjoyed it. Sadly though the whether was bad so we could not sit in the terrace, but the dishes well compensated. The meat dishes (rooster and rabbit) were the best we've had in the island, not to mention the sweet treats and fruits served at the end.

Just please bare in mind that it's a family run tavern, not a fancy restaurant, so the warm service and taste takes over the white sheets and presentation of food. :)

Little difficult to find but worth it. Great home cooked meals. Toilet facilities very new and clean. They even gave us a plate of fruit after we ate.

We went there for dinner after a somewhat long drive and wondering how to find the parking.
We managed to locate the restaurant and it is a small tavern with a beautiful view so you might wanna go there before the sunset to actually enjoy the view.
We ordered the rabbit and rooster as they were the highlights of the menu. The meat itself is nicely cooked and delicious and as side dish you could choose either pasta or fried potatoes. The price is incredibly low .. at least compared to other places however they could enrich the side dish options.
The rose wine was terrible and I could not drink it so you better opt for the red.. it might be better.
The Tzatziki and the cheesecake were amazing though! Both of them MUST TRY :)
