Authentic Greek food!! We loved it! Service was very good too. A bit difficult to find though; just turn left by the entrance of the Old Market and you'll see a sign. Reasonable priced. A must go while in Naxos!!! I highly recommend it.

Having eaten along the port front many times during our week on Naxos, we decided to head into the labyrinth of the lanes and alleys in the Old Market area for dinner. We chose Vassilis because of its varied and traditional Greek cuisine. The decor...More
