Local Naxos cuisine

Good cooking is based on excellent ingredients. Fresh organic vegetables and meat, fish coming straight from the fishing boat, hand-picked aromatic herbs and some of the exquisite Greek olive oil will easily produce the pure taste of the Mediterranean. Don't worry if you are not a chef, give it a try and you'll be amazed.
