Perhaps the best taverna in the Cyclades

I love Paros... the people, the culture, the religion, the strong family ties, the colours, the clarity in the sky.... the food... Talking of the food; if you are in Paros try dining at Annas Restaurant in Drios Village (opposite the supermarket) It is awesome!

Anna does not show you a menu, she invites you into her kitchen and shows you all the pots containing her home made cooking. Her mum sits in the corner peeling figs, smiling and singing Greek songs.

The food is amazing: from lamb, to fresh fish, to aubergines, to chick peas, to meat balls... all made with love... and will cost about 12 Euro plus wine :)

Anna is the heart of the community and will welcome you into her "home"...and to the local village... If you go, please say "Ali sent you". She will give you the biggest smile and warmest welcome.

Cheers
Ali Boyle

Thanks for all the tips regarding Paros, Ali! I do agree with you, Anna's Restaurant is one of the best!

Her smile and warm presence, the food which is veeery good, the roof garden with its flowers and the friendly atmosphere make you want to come back.

It's a lovely place for a quiet lunch and also to dine with friends :)
I don't think I would have tried it without your suggestion, the entrance is quite simple and without the usual Greek pomp but the moment you enter, you'll not regret it! The food is amazing and everything in Anna's taverna is so Greek and friendly that nobody should miss it.

I'm sorry ... I tried to add a comment since last week but probably Greeka has a limit for these comments and I wasn't able to submit it.
Filakia polla ... Say Hi to Anna :)

My favourite restaurants in Parikia

Category: Paros Parikia


I have visited Paros every year since 2002, and have dined in many of its restaurants, and my top 3 in no particular order are as follows.
Porfira, a few minutes walk east of the ferry quay, serves excellent seafood dishes, from simply grilled fresh fish, to the more unusual such as sea urchin and oysters, and wonderful kakavia.
Ouzeri Mouraggio, a similar walk the other way from the ferry quay serves great traditional taverna fare and meze, especially the grilled octopus and cheese and spinach pies.
Apollon Garden in the chora is my final choice, situated in a magnificent walled garden, with a more refined cuisine and excellent wine list, together with photos of the rich and famous who have dined there.
Apart from the great food that these establishments serve, what always makes them stand out for me is the hosts who make every visit welcoming and memorable.

I have been coming to Paros for over 30 years. Parikia is a fantastic town, with everything you need for a great holiday. Brilliant Restaurants (Hibiscus, Paros Family Taverna), lovely beaches- Krios is great for kids (fab taverna, clean beach, new clean toilets) and has free sunloungers. If you can, stay in the Old Town, it is the most convienient and the prettiest.

Category: Paros Lefkes


Magnificent village in the mountains. No view to the sea but to the wild landscape of Paros. I loved the white houses and the arched streets. I also loved the grandmas who were watering the gardens and the grandpas playing cards in the square. Have a Greek coffee on the pot in the square under the plane tree. Lefkes was the first capital of Paros many decades ago. Today they are not tourist spot but a lovely village away from mass tourism. You have a car/ motoribke to go there. I don't know if a bus goes to Lefkes, normally it goes, but we had rented a motorbike to get around the island more easily. Around Lefkes, there are lots of churches and monasteries.

Interesting experience to see other religion

Category: Paros Churches > Monastery of Panagia Ekatontapiliani


My husband is a great culture lover and he insisted on going to the church of Panagia Ekatontapiliani, the main church of Paros obviously. This is a beautiful monastery and it actually has five smaller churches. We saw nice things from older times in this monastery complex in Parikia, the capital of Paros. There was an ancient baptistery with marble baptizing tub and interesting icons in the churches.

My husband was very fascinated by the Byzantine museum inside the temple. It had a collection of various heirlooms and icons from the Byzantium period, some gospels and clothes of priests. It is always fascinating to see aspects of other religions and visiting this monastery was a nice experience in Paros. We believe a Greek island is not only the beaches and the villages, it is also the culture, the museums, the religion and the people.

Category: Paros Naoussa


You cannot visit Paros and not even pass by Naoussa. Naoussa is a beautiful village, located on a huge bay, in northern Paros. As you can easily understand from the hundreds of boats at the bay, this is a fishing place.

Wherever you go in Naoussa, bay, narrow streets, churches, beach, still this is one of the best places in Paros. While there, you can take a look at the Wine Museum, and if you are visiting Paros in summer, ask the locals about the dates of the fish and wine festival! Very close to Naoussa, there is the Paros Aqua Park. The park is very big and it was a nice surprise to see that they are actually using sea water! I don't remember the ticket fare, but I think it was not that expensive.

If you like quiet villages, away from the crowded villages, Lefkes is a small village in the center of the island. Away from the sea, provides a very cozy environment, with Greek traditional coffee shops and taverns.

Category: Paros Aliki


Aliki is not actually a village, it is a tourist hamlet with many hotels and taverns in the seaside. We rented our hotel there because it is closer to the airport, although it is quite far from the other beaches and villages.

Transportation in the daytime is good, but buses stop in the evening, so we rented a sccoter to be more comfortable.

The beach is very close to all hotels. It is a small, sandy beach with clean water and no watersports. This was not actually a problem, because there are so many other beaches on Paros to practise some sports.

We actually used to swim in Aliki beach early in the morning, even before breakfast, when the beach was not that crowded, and we set our for excursions at noon.

Sophisticated and vivid

Do not have any doubt that Naoussa is the best village on Paros. Parikia, the capital, is also fine but it gets too noisy sometimes. But Naoussa gives another sense: more picturesque, more sophisticated, more vivid with the bars around the small port. I honestly adored this village, it has a secret power to make you feel optimist.

We spent our week in Aliki.. lovely small village with great central beaches and small outdoor pubs. We loved exploring the nooks and crannies of the village. Although small, Aliki has a wonderful selection of great seafood restaurants which sit on (literally) the fishing boats so one can watch the fisherman prepare the fresh octopus and squid. Bar staff were friendly and kind and the prices were half that of the bars and restaurants in the larger towns on the island.

Naoussa was spectacular

Village of Naoussa was spectacular, beaches were lovely on the island, nightlife was quite hard to find, didn't find any nightclubs in fact. Aqualand was fantastic. Taxis were not freely avail and to get back to our hotel was always a hassle. So I recommend that you bring your driving licence as we wanted to rent quad bikes but didn't have our licences with us.
There was one italian restaurant in Naoussa -can't remember its name but it had the nicest italian food I've ever tasted; there wasn't enough asian food available though.
