Location: Town

Vasilis restaurant is one of the best-kept secrets of Naxos town. Hidden in the old market area, this place boasts of a fantastic reputation with its clients. Good quality homemade Greek food and authentic local wine are what most people on the island are looking for and Vasilis offers exactly that!

Taverna Vasilis began its journey way back in 1951 with 5 tables on an earthen floor. Since then it has grown to become a full-fledged successfully run restaurant. It is a family property whose ownership has passed through generations. This is probably the main reason for the cozy atmosphere and warm treatment witnessed here. Everything from the stylish interiors to the authentic Greek food has a personal touch to it.

The restaurant offers a variety of dishes and it is a highly recommended joint. Food served here is made using traditional Greek recipes. Delicious homemade food is definitely a plus for this place. One can start with some delicious starters, salads and soups followed by the main course offering a variety of non-vegetarian dishes. Vegetarians, however, will have a tougher time here as the vegetarian dishes on offer are few in number. One can choose from main plates of meat, chicken or seafood along with the traditional dishes and pasta available. The restaurant has a reasonable variety of desserts available as well, such as apple pie and baklava.

    Vassilis is a lovely long established family taverna in Old Market Street in the centre of Naxos. The taverna is run by a friendly family and has a menu of locally produced good quality food. We ordered swordfish and a Greek salad which were delicious, with wine, the meal was very reasonably priced. The taverna is charming and immaculately clean. There is also a very pretty garden area for outside dining, perfect for a leisurely meal on a warm summer night. Highly recommended.
