“The best place to eat at Paros”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

It is little restaurant at the center of Naousa. The food is excellent and the staff is fast and friendly. I highly recommend this place, but you have to make reservation a few day earlier.

“Atmospheric and different”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Nice and atmospheric restaurant in the heart of Naussa. Average service but excellent food, although it wouldn't qualify as purely Greek. We ordered honey glazed octopus (wonderful), lamb in vine leaves with potatoes (tasty and tender), yemeni sallad (EXTRAORDINARY!) and aubergine sallad (REALLY good).
All in all: very good but a bit pricey!

“Just a Hype!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

We heard a lot of good words about this restaurant and we decided to try it out! The service was quite unfriendly stressed and unprofessional... We also waited a whole hour for our main courses which were also very disappointing! I had the pastitsio which had the local cheese in it, which was not mentioned in the menu, which didn't taste well! It was also kinda raw... At the end we also had to wait long for a chocolate soufflé which didn't even had a nice molten center :(

I ll never forget the Octopus stifado, the lobster linquini, fish carpaccio, pie with kavourmas cheese and tomato, melitzanosalata, revithada, lavraki, greek buffalo stake, ribeye from argentina etc!!! Yes we tryed a lot but worth every euro! Great location great service! Advice to book in advance! Kostas Dionysia from Amaliada! Geia sou Gianni kai Niko!

“Extraordinary!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

I have now visited Paros & Naoussa twice and on both occasions, Yemeni has been the absolute culinary gem of the trip. The quality of the experience- both in food as well as service- is evident from the pride of the staff; they know they work in the best restaurant on the entire island and prove it night in, night out.

The menu offers a much wider range of options- both financially and stylistically- than would normally be expected of a restaurant which carries such a high standard. Even the more 'normal' options such as the chicken/beef skewers are presented with real flair, and needless to say there are enough choices that stray from the ordinary enough to make Yemeni a place that just keeps surprising you. This also makes extremely family friendly.

To round it off- while it lacks the waterfront location of many of it's competitors, the atmosphere within the Naoussa alleyways is from another world (as anyone who has been there knows first-hand) and creates an intimate surrounding.
