I’m very surprised by some of the negative reviews on here. We went with a family of four and had a lovely evening. Food was authentic and high quality. We had a mix of pasta, seafood and meat dishes and it was all very nice....More

Great location, close to the sea. A lot of local people and very buzy. Despite the great amount of guests, staff was attentive and friendly. We ate well, both seafood as pizza were excellent

The food was alright I ordered a Margherita which was quite nice, a tad hard to cut, but for the price of 5€, it was good. Pasta was al dente and the house white wine was good. The Gelato with pistaccio was good!

A beautiful restaurant at the sea. Very convenient to Arathena Rocks hotel and about 1km from the start of the vibrant Gardini Naxos strip. Try the seafood, particularly the prawns char grilled in their shell, also mussels and pizza. Always busy, great ambiance, good service.

This place seems to be run by and elderly family who really didn't care too much. Judging by the clientele it wasn't the smartest place and they didn't care. Service was nearly acceptable and the food did not seem fresh - even the pasta! Even...More

This is a fairly remote dinner option in Naxos but with a loyal clientele and good antipasto and seafood pasta dishes. It has a beautiful view of the Naxos bay and up to Taormina. Service is bilingual and decent. There is a choice of indoor...More
