Have been coming here for years. Easy to say good mountain taverna basic but well cooked food. But it is much more. Always interesting specials and goes beyond the local standards.
Very friendly. Good prices. Great food. Basic (but enjoyable) surroundings.

Fontana tavern is a great taverna - and its in a great place at the centre of Fontana ( please don't get excited there is nothing there ) - its a tiny village settlement - but so much a part of Paxos that I can never not be there !
The food is typical ( so that means good ) the prices are also reasonable - not cheap but not expensive and the welcome is fine - its not going to make five stars in any review and its certainly NOT the best place to eat on Paxos - but its a lovely place in a great spot in the centre of the island - and I for one will DEFINATELY go back there next year - if only to remind myself how much a true and authentic Greek taverna this is - very uncomfy chairs - and nothing glitzy or glam - just simple and great food - basic as it comes - but just wonderful

This is an authentic local taverna and the prices reflect that, probably the cheapest prices of all the restaurants we regularly visited. The food is good, with local specialities varied each day. My favourite was meatballs in lemon sauce, delicious, and not found elsewhere on the island. The marinated mushrooms started is also exceptional. The family are very welcoming; somebody mentioned Nico's lack of a smile, we found him to be shy but more relaxed once he knows you. This is one of only three restaurants we know that are open at the end of October through November, they are open all year round for the locals. All of the others are closed for the winter. We visited throughout November at lunchtimes and evenings.

This is a pleasant Greek taverna which is very popular with locals and villa guests in the area. Nice Menu and good quality food. The rating of very good is in relative terms to other Greek tavernas which from our experience mostly produce low quality grilled meat and fish of the home cooked variety. Service is friendly and the prices were very reasonable. As with many Greek restaurants smoking is common place so probably best to sit on the outer edge if you dislike the smell of smoke
