Barbounis is a laid-back taverna in the beach resort of Agios Prokopios (about 6km from the island's capital, Naxos Town).

It is located on a street corner in the centre of this small, relaxing resort - right opposite the long, sandy beach.

The taverna has numerous tables on its outdoor terrace as well as tables in its airconditioned interior.

The taverna has a large selection of local and international dishes. For example, Greek dishes include moussaka, gyros, souvlaki, kalamari (squid), saganaki (fried cheese), Greek salads, stuffed vine leaves and various lamb and beef meat dishes. The international selection includes pasta and pizzas. There is an extensive choice of fresh seafood.

There is a large choice of soft drinks and alcoholic beverages, although in late September 2005 (close to the end of the season) the draught beer had finished for the season - so it was bottles only.

The waiter service is friendly and efficient and the atmosphere is relaxing and informal.

Favorite Dish: I ate here on my first night in Agios Prokopios in September 2005 on the recommendation of the hotel owner at the place that I was staying.

I had just arrived from crowded Santorini, so I really enjoyed the slower-paced atmosphere.

I opted for the saganaki (fried cheese) as a starter - a large portion served with a lemon to squeeze on it.

For my main course I had Spaghetti Carbonara. Again, the portion was large (and served with large slices of bread) and the food was piping hot and excellent quality.

As with any beachside taverna, prices are a little above average - but not excessively so. If I recall correctly, the saganaki cost about 3 Euros and the Carbonara 6 Euros.

Good food in a relaxing setting!
