Paros in detail


Parikia and Naoussa both have lively dining scenes, with a good mix of traditional tavernas, gyros joints and upmarket/fusion places. Waterfront dining comes to the fore in both towns. There are also a few excellent restaurants scattered around the countryside that are well worth seeking out.

Dining Off The Beaten Track

Parikia and Naoussa don't have the monopoly on Paros' best dining. It's worth travelling to the tiny villages of Prodromos and Dryos to seek out the best in traditional local cooking, with most ingredients sourced from the families' own farms and there being plenty of inexpensive barrel wine to wash it down with.

Taverna Tsitsanis is Paros' oldest tavern, going strong since 1969 and serving terrific meatballs, cuttlefish stewed in wine and more.

Restaurant Anna cooks up goat with lemon sauce, as well as rabbit casserole, artichoke stew, or whatever happens to be fresh from the family farm.
