Being big seafood fans, we wanted to try this place having read so much about it online. It had been recommended as the place the locals and even the local fishermen go to eat.

The first time we ate here we had a mixed fish platter to share - it was just ok but to no fault of the restaurant. We where being a little too adventurous and trying the octopus etc but we didn't really enjoy it. We did go back at a later date in the evening and it was indeed packed with the locals. We decided to the less adventurous and try the fresh fish of the day which was the grey mullet. Served traditional Greek style and it was delicious!

Highly recommend for dinner-amazing seafood and wine. Beautiful setting right on the waterfront. Our waiter went over and above to make sure we loved our meal, including complimentary dessert.

Disclaimer: the owner took our order after hearing that we were staying with someone he really liked. Your results may vary.

But OUR results were great! He said "trust me, I'll trade care of you" and he did. I really love it when servers (or owners) take a chance and bring you food they like. He brought too much, but we ate most of it anyway. Delicious! Plus one of of our group is a vegetarian, so the owner also needed to cover that. (She was less impressed I was, though said still gave it 4 of 5 stars.)

This place is on the harbor so you might expect it to be a tourist trap, but not so. Make sure to ask what fish is fresh tonight and go from there.

Our fish was fresh, but served with potato's and nothing else.
Service was not great although friendly. All in all an average rating with the fish being the high lite.

After reading all of the reviews we definitely expected better. While the service was friendly and atmosphere was fun the food left much to be desired. Mussels saganaki was actually good however our main entree of assorted grilled fish was completely overcooked and oily, resulting in extremely rubbery and almost in edible squid and octopus. The grilled octopus has become one of our favorite dishes in Greece and believe me if this had been our first experience having it I would never want to eat it again. As others have mentioned you are treated to free yogurt and liquor at the end but this doesn't make up for our main meal. There are way better places to eat at in Naxos.
