Returned a year later and thought that the food was not quite up to their standard of previous years. We had similar dishes ti previous years too. The waiters are still VERY friendly. The surroundings and music are great as in previous visits

We've been going to Lucullus every year for the past 7 years so Yes we like it! The team are lovely and yes of course they recognise us so we are greeted like family but the food quality and atmosphere still delivers for a first time visitor. Try the Naxian salad - our favourite or the marinated octupus. Kelftiko and... More

Those who gave a high remark may not know how this taverna prepared food. The staff were sitting inside the taverna like we did (what's worse, one was smoking and one has annoying chatting notification) and we heard the sound of microwave before our food was served. We asked the waiter about this, and he said most restaurant were doing... More

In several years we found many good restaurants in Naxos. I’m not sure if „Lucullus“ really is the oldest Tavern (1908), but I’m 100% convinced, that it has the finest cuisine in Naxos City (Chora). Amalia, the chef de cuisine has the flair to to combine traditional Greek cuisine with an amazing touch of innovation. If you like to expand... More

Delicious food and warm, helpful service!! Try the Lamb "kleftiko" (the most delicious dish I tried in Greece!), their famous "lemonata", the zucchini balls and the "cheese of 12 gods"! YUM!!

The service was top notch, the location/ambiance was magical and the food was superb. The night we were there they had a duo playing bouzouki's and singing and they were fantastic. I love when the singing accompanies the bouzoukis not the other way around. Everyone was having a great time, some dancing and singing along with the music. Would go... More

Taverna from 1908 in the old town of Naxos. Very cozy , friendly staff and good food. 2 musicians playing Greek music without it being intrusive . The downside was that it was allowed to smoke there. Otherwise, a place I recommend .

Lucullus is the most amazing authentic Greek restaurant in Naxos in the old city! We go here every year for a big birthday celebration. The setting is cozy and the food is great. Especially the Lemonato. I can recommend this place for everyone who want's a great more upscale Greek meal. The prices are differently fair and the host is... More

Supposedly the oldest taverna of Naxos, Lucullus taverna is situated in a narrow alleyway in the old city area. The place is lively with many shops selling touristy items, yet the narrow stone-paved alleys have an old world charm. Lucullus is a cozy and nice place with outside seating along the walls of a side alley, covered in creepers. The... More
