An Aegean dining experience
“Scirocco” is a modern Greek restaurant run by 2 brothers, Nikos and Michalis, who convinced their mother Katerina to help them manage their own place since 24th March 1995. The restaurant is placed in the heart of Chora Naxos, in Protodikeiou Square and it was founded in the dreams and enthusiasm of two young people who still today want to offer honest food and enjoyment to their customers purely by doing what they love. “Scirocco’s” international name is originated by the famous south wind, that in Greece we also call it “Sorokos or Sorokada” wind.
Since its opening in 1995, Scirocco has become somewhat of an institution on Naxos island that should not be missed. Its beautiful decoration, indoor and outdoor seating combined with friendly, attentive and efficient staff create a welcoming environment where you feel right at home with friends.
“Scirocco” focuses its philosophy on offering traditional dishes that reflect the Aegean culture made with fresh local products including family’s own olive oil and vegetables from their small farm. There you can find fresh salads, Greek starters, pasta plates, grilled meats, fresh fish, delicious orange pies with ice cream and in general something to please every palate, as mama Katerina likes preparing high quality homemade dishes and share them with her friends.
As the restaurant takes several steps to be environmental-friendly, from spring 2018 it has become a member of Consume-Less group. “Scirocco” chooses energy efficient appliances in the kitchen and low-consumption lighting in the whole facility. It also follows a strict oil recycling program, recycles plastic and glass bottles and as it grows or buys local products reduces transport and packaging.
Do not miss out this Mediterranean experience, as during these years certain words have become synonymous with Scirocco: family, friendship, honesty, genuine, tradition, value for money, cheer, warm and quality service.
