Location and contact

Family taverna since 1970 The traditional tavern Nikos, which is located in one of the most central spots of Chora of Naxos, has a long tradition on what we call “good food” and is waiting to introduce you some of the most famous Greek dishes. Its cuisine is based on dishes that take us back to our childhood… to those delicacies we would try in the home of our mom, our grandma, a classical Greek housewife. Among a wide variety of cooked meals that are prepared on daily basis, you can taste pastitsio (macaroni pie), mousaka, lamb in lemon sauce, rabbit stew, and beef stew. Wonderful flavors, traditional way of preparation, but above all fresh local products of excellent quality are what ensure that the result arriving on your plate is flawless.

Staff were friendly and attentive. The food was amazing - the best we had while visiting Naxos. Fresh and tasted authentic. Not far from the Port. Menu had plenty of variety as well as authentic Greek food.

Very good address. The plates are very tasted and delicious and the quantity is big. The waitress is very nice and dynamic. We don't wait too much. They offer the dessert.

We had great traditional food, quality straight up traditional meals. Atmosphere plain, as of old fashioned and not aiming for trendy.

Came across Nikos near the Main Square in Naxos on our first night, and loved it so much that we dined here three nights out of five. The menu is really extensive with all the classic Greek recipes e.g. stifado, kleftiko, moussaka, souvlaki. I really...More

In my opinion this is the best value for money taverna in Naxos. Two meals and wine for 20 euro. Good food, good service, lots of smiles. They have a winning formula.
