1924 Restaurant in Agios Prokopios
1924 is the year captain Giannis Lagos arrived from Aivali to Naxos. He brought his family with him and started a new well-routed life here, that flourished by the captain’s love for tradition and his outgoing, open-minded spirit. The 1924 restaurant in Agios Prokopios embodies the same values today: a deep respect for Naxian tradition and an authentic cuisine that reflects a creative and playful spirit.
We welcome you to a unique dining experience that celebrates nature, offering the pure essence of Naxos.
One of the best restaurants in Naxos
For the past 25 years, cooking has been a constant part of Panayiotis Melidonis’ lifestyle. His gastronomic journey is connected with luxurious 5-star hotels and shipping companies, while he has cooked for the President of the Hellenic Republic as well as in the European Parliament. He is a professor at the School of Tourism Professions of the Ministry of Tourism and he has been distinguished in many Panhellenic and European competitions
Our Restaurant, is operating every day from 12 am – 11:30 pm, serving fresh cooked dishes based on traditional products, which we obtain by daily by local producers, as well as Mr. Stelios Lagos’ fishing boat. The well-known Naxian products, pure and natural, such as the mouth-watering local cheese, delicious meat, organic vegetables and aromatic herbs, are the canvas for a contemporary Greek cuisine inspired by traditional recipes.
We are proud for our membership to the “Greek Breakfast” program that allows us to offer to our guests the perfect start for a glorious vacation day, tasting the best local products and experiencing the gastronomic wealth of an island that embodies all the advantages of the healthy Mediterranean diet. The Mediterranean Diet is not just a modern dietary trend but is according to UNESCO the “intangible cultural heritage of mankind”.
The Eastern Star Bar
Eastern Star –Anatolikos Astir-, was the name of Mr. Lagos’ first boat, that back in 1924, brought his family safe to the island of Naxos. The joyful arrival to Naxos was celebrated with a bottle of wine; the family, standing on the wooden deck of the Eastern Star, raised their glasses and toasted to health, love, prosperity and a happy life in Naxos… Ninety- three years later we still raise our glasses on the Eastern Star deck: Here, at the Lagos Mare Hotel outdoor bar, we are keen on enjoying aperitifs and bespoke cocktails that match the amazing orange-pink colors of Naxos sunsets.
