Lucullus is the most amazing authentic Greek restaurant in Naxos in the old city! We go here every year for a big birthday celebration. The setting is cozy and the food is great. Especially the Lemonato. I can recommend this place for everyone who want's a great more upscale Greek meal. The prices are differently fair and the host is... More

Supposedly the oldest taverna of Naxos, Lucullus taverna is situated in a narrow alleyway in the old city area. The place is lively with many shops selling touristy items, yet the narrow stone-paved alleys have an old world charm. Lucullus is a cozy and nice place with outside seating along the walls of a side alley, covered in creepers. The... More

We were recommended this restaurant from people we met pool side at our resort. They said the food was terrific and the restaurant had atmosphere. Well they were correct on both counts. We enjoyed two plates of the octopus vinaigrette (1 plate was so delicious we immediately ordered a second), a Naxos cheese wrapped in pastry and fried off then... More

Lucullus taverna is the oldest taverna in Naxos. Also like most of the businesses here, it is run by a local family. We kept coming here for many years. It has a beautiful and unique decor. The food is delicious. Highly recommended ! Love their arugula salad with sun dried tomatoes, dried raisins, pine nuts as we'll as the lamb... More

Our experience at lunch was ok but not great. Sweet, friendly young hostess tried to take good care of us. Chicken souvlaki came out looking beautiful but was too raw in the center, so we sent it back. They made another plate, rather than simply reheating that one, which was nice, but it took forever. Tasty once it finally arrived.... More

We stumbled across this taverna during the afternoon of our last night in Naxos and decided to return in the evening for dinner.....great choice! Enchanting setting and a fantastic meal. The staff were friendly and pretty and the owner was very entertaining with his historical stories! We must return.......

Five years ago we enjoyed a very special meal in wonderful, traditional atmosphere at Lucullus and hoped to repeat the experience this year. However, every time we went to dine at Lucullus, we found the taverna full of tourists and two not so wonderful musicians entertaining them. Not the sophisticated taverna of our prior visit and so obviously for the... More

Outstanding traditional atmosphere, I wish the food could compare. The chicken tasted like compressed pork and my mothers lamb dinner was burried in some not-so-nice sauce. the service was very good though.....

We read about this place and our expectations was high. Food was average, nothing special. Maybe the dishes we chosen was wrong for us but staff didn't helped us at all. Price are high
