Sto Ladoxarto (Naxos Town)

A carnivore's paradise, Sto Ladoxarto is a restaurant specializing in meats — primarily the grilled variety. Orders normally come with a side of potato wedges and a salad, and meals are often followed by a complimentary chocolate "kormos" dessert. Offers views over the harbour (among other perks).


Perhaps surprisingly for an island, Naxian cuisine is known more for its meat than seafood: grass-fed beef, lamb, goat meat and poultry often feature as primary dish ingredients on the island restaurants' menus. Try the Naxian specialty Easter dish called "patoudo" — stuffed lamb meat with herbs, often served with the celebrated regional potatoes. Meals often start with a round of small plates called "meze". These are made with seafood, meat, and vegetables. The island is also known for locally-produced wines and cheeses like gruyer, arseniko, xynomizithra, xynotyro and mizithra.
