Very disappointing! Service was not great, no locals which says a lot; food was very disappointing. We have eaten here twice before over the last ten years ( we are on the island every year ) and eventually decided to give it another try; we...More

Another Naxos trip - another visit to Taverna Vassilis. And once again, service and food excellent. A lovely family-run restaurant in the old town, very easily located on Old Market Street.

Found this little restaurant whilst wandering the quaint little backstreets and saw some diners with a fish platter. The tables are placed old Greek style in the flower bedecked alleyways which gives a real traditional feel which we prefer to all the latest "Greek food...More

Thank you so much for your review. It's nice to hear that people still like the old fashioned type of Greek restaurant. As you say lots of 'new' style restaurants springing up. Good to know that we are not outdated yet. Thank you.

Vassilis Taverna has survived for seventy years because what it does is straightforwardly good. During the last fifteen years Vassilis's fortunes have mirrored those of the Naxian economy with years during the crisis when there was an empty table or two. But this year on...More

This taverna is a must for anyone visiting Naxos. Food amazing and location to die for, in the labyrinth old market area that is Naxos Town (Hora). Trust me, you won't be disappointed: if you are then there's no pleasing you!
