Located in a quiet cobblestone alley in the picturesque port of Naoussa, Soso prepares high-quality Greek fusion dishes that have made it the culinary queen of the town. During the long Greek summers, the tables are placed outside in the alley (a practice followed by almost all local restaurants), creating a romantic atmosphere. Soso is perfect for a dinner for two and for those who like traditional Greek cuisine with a modern twist. The wine and beer menu is varied and well thought of. Dishes like the haloumi cheese with honey, the lamb in lemon sauce and the slow-cooked pork are among the most popular. You are strongly advised to make a reservation.


Siparos can be found at the gorgeous beach of Santa Maria and is famous for both its fantastic food and its stunning location. This seaside elegant restaurant offers a variety of fresh Greek and Mediterranean dishes that have made it a popular culinary destination. Watching the sunset from the restaurant is a nice way to spend an evening; the views are spectacular. Try a combination of delicious fresh salads and of course the seafood menu, including dishes like the grilled octopus and calamari. It is all fresh cooked and served to a high standard.


Mediterraneo is a fish meze restaurant in the stylish marina of Naoussa. It is well known in Paros for the quality seafood meze (the Greek version of tapas) as well as the fresh fish, colorful and crispy salads and a variety of traditional side dishes. The menu is a smart blend of Mediterranean and Greek fish restaurant cuisine, and uses local ingredients imaginatively. Freshness is what matters above everything else here. The location in the quiet side of the harbor of Naoussa offers magnificent views of the yachts in the marina.

Sigi Ihthios

Grilled fish

This gourmet fish restaurant is a popular spot. Located at the most picturesque spot of Naoussa’s harbor among an array of white washed traditional houses and churches, it could have been part of a Hollywood film set about Greece. Fresh fish delivered directly by the fishing boats in the harbor in front clearly goes to good use here. Quality meats, fresh salads and vegetarian dishes are among a wide range of Greek dishes that are also available. The best spot in town hands down for people-watching and feeling the Paros vibe.

Taverna Yiannoulis

Taverna Yiannoulis prepares hearty greek food, and it is the perfect choice for those looking for budget food in Paroikia. Popular dishes are the all-time favorite Greek souvlaki and gyros, served on pita bread and accompanied by red house wine. Simple, delicious and tasty, this is everything you need before you hit the bars in the port of Paroikia, or while you wait for your boat to arrive.
