10 Best Restaurants in Naoussa Paros

1. Sigi Ikthios

Without a doubt one of the prettiest settings in the entire town of Naoussa, Sigi Ikthios is set up on one of the most beautiful squares in all of Greece. Overlooking the water, with fishing boats bobbing and a Venetian Castle in the background, this is Naoussa at its most perfect and beautiful.

Once you’ve picked up your jaw from the floor, you’ll be pleased to know that Sigi Ikthios serves incredibly fresh and fantastic seafood. For seafood lovers, this is one of the best restaurants in Naoussa Paros for superb shellfish and fresh-off-the-boat fish.

The menu also caters to those who aren’t too keen on seafood and serves traditional Greek dishes such as Mousaka. Sigi Ikthios also hosts wedding events, and honestly what an incredible place to get married in.

2. Kapari Restaurant

Greece has some of the best cuisines in the world. And Kapari takes it to a new level, introducing local flavours that are found primarily in the Cycladic Islands.

Kapari is fine dining without being pretentious or the expensive price tags. Local dishes that must be sampled in Kapari are the feta cheese filo pastry pies or the Gruyere cheese from the surrounding area of Paros.

This was our favourite meal in Naoussa and everything we sampled was absolutely delicious. Be prepared to bring your appetite to Kapari as the portions are quite large. The pork belly was out of this world.

3. Taverna Glafkos

Taverna Glafkos almost wins the prize for the prettiest setting. It’s a toss-up between it and Sigi Ikthios, Taverna Glafkos sits on the water and in the evening enjoys truly stunning sunsets. Nestled between Fotis and Come Back Bar, the food varies from pasta to traditional Greek Dishes. The food is nice, but its the setting that steals the show. Try to book for a table near the water for the ultimate beach setting.

4. Almond in Paros

Beautiful Almond in Paros lies at the entrance to the town of Naoussa in the town’s main square. Serving breakfast and pancakes in a boho Bali terrace, you’ll want to spend a lot of time in this cafe and wellness centre. It’s lushing setting serves really healthy smoothie bowls, vegan and vegetarian dishes and promotes wellness. Almond in Paros chill vibes make it an essential place to visit in Naoussa Paros.

5. Safran Restaurant

Nestled down one of the many alleyways in Naoussa, you’ll find the beautiful Safran Restaurant. It’s a fantastic setting for people watching and on top of that has excellent dishes and presentation. The waiters in Safran are exceptionally nice and had fantastic suggestions of what local dishes and wines to sample.

6. To Takimi

To Takimi is a great space to find little nibbles. We ate our way through the menu here when one evening we found ourselves with restaurant fatigue. All we wanted were a few little bites and a glass of wine whilst discussing our plans for the next day. With views of the church and a local square, you will find yourself watching the locals and eating some delicious Greek tapas.

7. Fotis All Day Bar

Fotis is a superb breakfast and brunch spot with one of the prettiest views in Naoussa. The menu has lots of healthy options complete with protein pancakes, salads and typical Greek dishes. In the evening it turns into a cocktail bar, and whilst you can eat food, its definitely more suited as a place for brunch. It’s hard not to fall in love with Fotis and its easy to see why it’s one of the most popular spots on the entire island.

We grabbed a quick lunch in Fotis All Day Bar on our first day in Naoussa and had a lot of great healthy options. If you need a break after eating Gyros and need a protein pancake or salad, then this is one of the places to check out. Set almost right next to Come Back Bar, you will need to meander around a few alleyways to find this spot.

8. Pita Frank

It would be rude not to include Gyros, right? Not only is Pita Frank delicious, but it’s also incredibly cheap. After you have spent all your money on expensive cocktails, for €3.50 you can purchase an enormous Gyros stuffed to the gills with meat, veggies and fries and drenched in yummy sauces. We unashamedly ate ours during daylight hours and loved it so much we visited Pita Frank three times during our 7-day stay.

9. Ragoussis Bakery

If you love baked goods then look no further than Ragoussis Bakery. Located just before you enter the fishing village of Naoussa, I highly recommend you either have breakfast or lunch here. We grabbed some treats from here before heading off to the beach for the day. There are dozens upon dozens of Greek baked goods here, some of which I had never tried before. Definitely worth stopping by and having a coffee.

10. Barbarossa

Set against the backdrop of fishing boats and lapping water, you will have a tough time finding a prettier spot in all of Greece. There are 3 other restaurants in this area and they all looked so fantastic and great fun. We absolutely would have loved to have eaten at Barbarossa but sadly we ran out of time to eat there. Fresh fish is the speciality and it’s easy to see why when you are surrounded by fishing boats on all sides.

Too Many Places, Not Enough Time

Naoussa is a glamourous fishing village with plenty of chic options to dine in. It can also be a casual affair but do note that people do dress up for dinner in Naoussa in places like Sigi Ikthios and Barbarossa.

With options for all types of eaters, you will be hard-pressed to find restaurants in Naoussa that doesn’t cater to your needs. You can also read find a fantastic place to have a cocktail and watch the sunset here.

    Thanks for the information. Would love for you to suggest a cruise we should take from Paros. Staying in a villa for a week. Do we see Mykonos and Santorini or leave it for another time. It is a girls trip my daughter is 18.

      Hi Cindy! You’re so lucky to be going to Paros, it’s a really wonderful island. I think you could definitely do a full-day trip to Mykonos if it fits into your plans? Now that Covid seems to be behind us, a lot of the day trips seem to be running again. Have a look at this option of a full day trip to Mykonos.
