We returned to this tavern a year later. It is still very popular. We had Jalapeno Crockets, which were great and spicy, followed by Moussaka (Great) and Lamb in Lemon with potatoes (Very disappointing) This is the reason for the reduced rating

Near Saint George away from the main paralia is this hidden gem. Everything we had including the local house wine was divine. Stifado was amazing so much taste everything was fresh. Kleftiko was beyond description and Iman was to die for! Clearly one of the top restaurants in Naxos! Can't wait to when we go back.

We had octopus grilled, unfortunately, was very bitter. We love this dish and always in greece him eat. Probably burnt. The Meltemi was the worst.

Lovely food, great service, generous servings. Great bread. We had a very pleasant dinner at Meltemi, we sat out the front and the atmosphere was relaxed and the setting was pleasant.

Some of the best food I have ever had in Europe! The mousaka was outstanding & they provided us with ouzo on the house after desert. Our waitress was also amazing. Can't wait to visit again.

As with most times I have travelled in Europe, I find that the best restaurants with better prices and service are not located in the main square or waterfront. This place was no exception to that rule. I found it by accident on my first night in Naxos. I was just walking by and liked the look of it. Beautiful... More

We had one of the most memorable meals of our trip at Meltemi: the octopus salad in particular was excellent (as was the imam!). Great service, reasonable prices and really yummy food: what more could one ask for?

Situated on the road down to the Saint George Beach just past Naxos Old Town, Meltemi serves traditional Greek food in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. I had the moussaka, which was good. Drinks here are quite cheap and the food is better value than the places along the harbour.
