“lovely evening meal in Naxos Old Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Travelled to Naxos July 2013 having read some of the reviews about where to go and what to do in the evening.Walked up to the old sector near the port area and was spell bound by the beauty of the meandering alley ways and found Metaxy Mas. Fantastic setting outside and pleasant inside run by efficient but relaxed staff . Food good and fairly priced, wine though not brilliant. Great ambiance with a strong traditional feel. Paid something like £50 for decent meal for 4, composed 2 adults and two late teenage children.

“Go for the Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013

If you want over the top friendly where everyone speaks English and treats you like a long lost relative (with a wad of cash), then go somewhere else. If you want good food and professional service, come here. The food was a bit uneven, with some items underseasoned or lacking punch, but other items such as the zucchini balls where mind blowing.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2013

Can't understand why this isn't in the top 10. We ate here last night - healthy mixture of tourists and locals, a little off beaten track at the top of the old Market area. Food was frankly excellent although service a little slow.....who's in a hurry anyway. €30 for two including wine, so great value too. Typical Greek fare, served in quiet backstreet location. Avoid the tourist traps with views of the bay... Head into old Market next turn left and head up the hill toward castle.

“Great meal!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

Saw a good review in UK Daily Telegraph from earlier this year, so we decided to try it. We weren't disappointed. The taramasalata, moussaka and souvlaki were about the best we have had in Greece. The place was packed and is obviously very popular. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending anyone who wants authentic Greek food, to go there. The value is excellent.

“Over-rated...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013 via mobile

Food was okay, but did not all seem authentic. Service was a bit slow and server not overly friendly. Restaurant was smoky and washroom not as clean as it should be. Only open for dinner as far as we could tell, as we tried twice earlier for lunch but it was closed.
