What people are saying about Naxos

This was an amazing experience on our honeymoon! My husband and I rode moped's to the family tavern, where the host Anna greeted us and invited us to the table. There were 5 other guests with us and we had a fabulous time! We walked through the farm and cut the veggies we were going to use for cooking. After prepping the meal, learning about the history of the farm, and putting the dishes in the oven - we took our wine and walked along the hiking trail nearby which was stunning. Upon return - we feasted and shared more stories! The food was delicious, the wine was flowing and the conversation was enjoyable - I highly recommend it! My husband and I both agree that this was our top experience during our two-week honeymoon.

An absolute highlight of our trip. Gorgeous setting, incredible atmosphere. We hand picked vegetables from the garden and prepared everything at a the table with the group. This is a family owned and run business. Anna leads the class and is simply amazing. The food we cooked was phenomenal and was served with some other dishes prepared by Anna’s mom. She takes you on a great short hike while the food is cooking and shares tons of history about the area. We went with our ten year old son and there were 3 other kids there ages 7-12. Met the loveliest people. This is a true, authentic Greek experience. Do not miss it.

We had a wonderful afternoon learning about local history and cuisine with Anna at Taverna Basiliko. It was well worth the trek to the mountainous inland area of Naxos. We recommend messaging Anna directly for precise directions google maps doesn't do the best job of navigating you to your final destination. However, aside from that one note, we would recommend this experience for anyone looking to learn some authentic recipes, drink some great wine, and meet fellow travelers. Yamas!

We can't recommend this enough! We spent a lovely afternoon at the Basiliko taverna, and hosts Anna and her family made us feel very welcome as they showed us around the farm and local walking trails and historic sites. All of the food was amazing, and getting to pick the vegetables we good was a special extra. We will be repeating the recipes at home.

Wonderful experience. Anna was a fabulous hostess. We picked veggies from her garden, prepared a delicious meal, took a short, beautiful walk while it cooked and came back to an amazing feast. Highly recommend!!
