We stumbled across this little gem wandering through the maze of streets. The staff were do very attentive and friendly. Nothing too much trouble. The food was beautifully cooked and so very tasty. My pork dish with lemon was scrumptious! Reasonably priced food too.

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!

Six of us had a light lunch in this long standing restaurant in the old town of Naxos. We were made very welcome and seated comfortably. We shared two delicious Greek salads with good bread and cold beers. A complimentary dessert completed a delicious lunch.
