“Desserts' place”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

Aktaion has great desserts, cakes, coffees,sandwiches.There you can taste both traditional sweets and the 'something different' that you are looking for. The prices are ok and the staff fine. The waffles are nothing much in my opinion but there are plenty desserts to ask for, so don't worry.The view is great and the decoration of tables is very clever.

“Best desserts in town!”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

We just loved the vibe and food at this pastry shop. We made friends with the staff , one guy in particular who spoke great English. The selection of desserts is amazing and the Stevia range is fantastic - looks and tastes fabulous but come in at about half the calories. When we left , our friend gave us a beautifully wrapped box of almond pastries to bring home - now in what other country in the world can you get that kind of hospitlality? Go to Greece and Naxos in particular if you love the beach, sea and great people! We will definitely be back.

“From the best in Greece”
Reviewed 5 December 2012

To be honest, I have a very sweet tooth that it always demands the best in sweets and deserts all over the world. I had visited AKTAION during my holidays in Naxos in 2010 due to recommendations for the best "amygdalota " - Greek islands speciality made by pure almond's paste, rose-water and icing sugar, likely marzipan or les Callisons in South France - that I'm crazy for. Then, I found out my own treasures island. An incredible range of fine products inspired by the Viennese and the Parisian tradition: from chocolates and fondants to macaroons and ice-creams all incredible tasteful. Excellent ingredients in unexpected combinations created by their inspired and mostly creative chef de patisserie. I am a regular to patisseries throughout Greece. AKTAION is from the very best and you can enjoy them sitting in it's pleasant atmosphere in the sea front.Don't miss the amygdalota- in 3 different flavours actually; simply delicious

“be templeted by sweet offerings from the finest patisserie”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

I have been to Aktaion many times over the last 7 years. This place has an amazing collection of fine patisserie reminiscent of finest Parisian quality. In addition to these there is also in house chocolaterie and some traditional Greek offerings. You really can't go wrong with the choice. It is very popular with locals.

This is a fantastic place to chill out on the couches, listen to music and relax with a cold or hot drink with or without a cake as there is a nice view of the Naxos port and marina. A good place for breakfast or afternoon apres beach, or for an after dinner dessert or drink.

I can't wait to visit again, it is one of my Naxos highlights.
