    Greek night on Monday fully recommended

    We decided to book for the Monday night Greek evening and to be honest we were astounded by the endless amount of food presented as a taster of genuinely beautiful Greek cooking. The waiting staff worked really hard to get every course out to the guests as soon as possible. Local wine by the carafe was included but being non alcoholics we stuck to soft drinks. We lost count of how many courses came out but tried everything and the host Maria greeted everyone and insisted on us asking for seconds if we wanted it. There were traditional Greek musicians accompanying the excellent cuisine and we left completely stuffed! It was busy so I would suggest booking in advance and please respect the host and other guests and arrive on time! Some guests arrived between 15 and 45 minutes late. Whilst Maria greeted them in her imitable friendly Greek fashion this did put pressure on the staff trying to remember where each table was at during the many courses.

    Fantastic Family Cooking experience!

    This was such a highlight of our trip and even the teenagers loved it! The team at Anezina are so welcoming, kind and amazing mentor-cooks! We made 6 dishes and all were delicious. They have everything prepped for you to then further assemble, mix or cook. Then, as food is cooking we enjoyed a relaxing time with wine provided with other participants and then had a delicious meal we made! BEST Moussaka, Dolmadas, and orange cake! They also send us 60 additional recipes to make at home. What a treat. :) I would HIGHLY recommend this. Nice way to break up a beach vacation too.

    Beautiful & friendly

    We stayed here with RCI, the rooms were stunning. My only negative was storage to put clothes, some draws or shelves would have been helpful. Otherwise everything was just right. The owner was very helpful, friendly and nothing was Too much trouble. There is a supermarket just around the corner for the basics. We booked for the iconic greek night and had a fabulous 12 course meal and free drinks .. The location is just right, not for from the beaches. We hired a car from the airport which was perfect for visiting the different villages on the island. I would recommend this place but would come a little later maybe end May/June when more Is open!

    The BEST cooking class

    My husband and I took the cooking class led by Maria and her staff and it was the highlight of our trip to Paros. The restaurant was clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, and we had so much fun making many authentic Greek recipes that Maria was kind enough to share with us afterwards. A big bonus is they set up transportation so we were picked up from our hotel before the class and brought back afterwards. Cannot recommend the experience enough!

    Cooking Lesson Not To Be Missed!

    The best part of any holiday is to immerse you've into the local and what better way than to take a cooking lesson. I had done some research and came across Anezina Resturant and Maria. My best friend and I decided to enrol in the lesson and it was the highlight of our trip to Greece. Lucky for us it was just us two on the lesson and we were shown by Maria and her team to make 6 tasty Greek dishes. It was very C-19 safe and the environment was super clean. We were both rolling out of the restaurant after as we ate everything we made :) This is a must for your trip!! can't wait to recreate all the recipes I learnt.

    We were trying to go to the golden beach and got a bit lost, found this restaurant decided to go there and it was really good. Props to Christina (hope I'm not misspelling your name) our waitress, we had such a warm welcome! I asked about recommendation for beaches and she brought a map put it flat on a big empty table beside us and explain every spot she thought was the best. the food was really great but I mostly remember my chat with her as she was the sweetest ! She got us dessert on the house because they do cooking lesson and they made traditional cake earlier with a group. Thank you again Christina :) Alice, the blue eyed french girl ;)

    What a fun event! We attended with our two adult daughters (20&22) and we all had a great time. It was well run, very smooth transitioning from one recipe to the next. The food was flavorful and we most definitely learned a few new tricks and recipes. At one point the outdoor kitchen was filled with the smells of things cooking, we were all drinking wine and dancing around the kitchen. This was our first cooking class, thank you Maria, we had a great time!

    Wow. Where to start with this experience? BOOK IT RIGHT NOW! Absolute highlight of our trip to Paros. To be honest, we were staying in Parikia and once we realized the experience was in Drios, on the opposite end of the island, we were like, what did we get ourselves into? But, we managed to take the bus to Drios which was a gorgeous and scenic ride and this cooking class is 100% worth it. We met some new friends and learned to cook / bake some INCREDIBLE recipes. Plus they send you a complete guide to everything you make + so much more. A priceless experience beyond my expectations. Yeah. Just book it and take the bus to Drios. Anezina Village is steps from the Drios bus stop. We utterly enjoyed ourselves and made some delicious food. Excited for you to experience this!

    Fun time for our group of 6. Well organized, informative, fun and best of all, plenty of fabulous food. Plenty of wine and not just the recipes we prepared but many others were shared via email! Wonderful Greek cuisine experience!

    This was such a fun class for my new husband and I. We had fun learning how to make the Greek foods and we enjoyed the community with the other people in the class. The team that lead the class were so fun and kind- they really made the class wonderful. I highly recommend for a fun afternoon!

    This experience was incredible!! We made so many new friends, and Maria and the others who assisted with the class instruction were beyond kind and accommodating. We had a blast learning how to prepare traditional food, dancing, and drinking the amazing Greek wine. I would high recommend this for anyone visiting Paros. We got beyond our money’s worth. Absolutely a highlight of our trip!

    We loved Maria's class! I booked this for myself and my parents while we were visiting Paros. They both had an amazing time. It's a very social experience, with a long time spent during the meal talking with other attendees, so I wouldn't recommend this if you don't enjoy making conversation with new people. But if you are looking for an experience with a social aspect, this is for you!

    Maria welcomed us into her kitchen like we were old friends. Her recipes are delicious and she throws you right into work in the best way. From one home chef to another, Maria will teach you authentic techniques to use again and again.

    My adult family of 5 had a great time taking this class, we had so much fun learning with Maria and the rest of the team. Everyone takes on different tasks so not all of us learned the same thing, but we still had a great time. The team is welcoming, fun, and encouraged everyone getting to know each other - and of course all the food was delicious! It was definitely a highlight of our time in Paros and we look forward to making some of the recipes at home!

    We had such a blast at this cooking class! We each got to help with preparing different dishes and at times would come together to learn and cook all together. It was a great way to get to know other travelers as well. And the wine & ouzo were flowing! We learned a lot, enjoyed a great dinner, and were emailed a PDF with the recipes we made and more so that we can (attempt to) recreate them at home. HIGHLY recommend this experience!

    A real highlight of our trip. Maria’s beautiful restaurant + outdoor kitchen, her family recipes, and her awesome staff made our experience so special. The food was also so good (and pretty easy, even for my husband who isn’t an experienced cook at all) and we can’t wait to try out the recipes again at home. Definitely a must do in Paros!!

    This was my favorite memory for the entirety of my Greece trip. It is SO hands on and you truly get to experience true greek food in first person! Maria sends all of the recipes afterwards so now I can go home to my family and make them!

    What a delightful experience! A perfect evening of conversation and cuisine. We each took part in prepping different dishes and had a very hands on role in everything from chopping herbs, fileting fish, frying meatballs, and baking orange cake. The team was extremely friendly and courteous. And the food was delicious! Best food of our whole trip. The wine flowed all evening and we made great friends. We all got to take home the recipes and I can’t wait to make these dishes at home.

    This is a not to miss experience! The host Maria and all the chefs we learned from were fantastic. The food they helped us make was delicious and the outdoor kitchen setting was lovely and breezy! We enjoyed the other guests tremendously and especially sharing the meal at the end. What a wonderful experience!

    We each contributed to a wonderful traditional meal. We prepped, explained each cooking step, danced, had aperifs, and shared stories. Was a very hot day, but kitchen was in the shade. Everyone was lovely and a wealth of knowledge. Eating what we all put work into was rewarding and delicious! Highly recommend!

    The ABSOLUTE best things you can do on the island! You uave to eat so why not have a hands on experience where you can learn to cook and enjoy Greek family recipes. the class and experience was beyond great. I had the best time. The team was so helpful and engaging and were sure to keep everyone involved. They provided relevant stories, shared culture, and events. The atmosphere, was perfect and the food was amazing. I dont know when I am coming back, but definetly doing this class again.

    This is a must-do experience if you want an intro to the art of Greek cooking or just a really fun day + delicious meal. Greek white wine was flowing throughout the cooking process, Greek dancing after dishes went in the oven, and our bellies were full by the six-course meal we cooked. The outdoor location was also beautiful—highly recommend going to Faragas beach before or after. Perfect for beginner or experienced home cooks alike. Overall one of the highlights from our trip.

    This experience was overall positive. Some of the food was pretty good (I’m excited to remake it at home) and it was enjoyable to get to meet other travelers . There’s more than enough food to go around as well as wine and the serving staff is all very pleasant, some of the best service I’ve had in Greece. However, I was in a group of 10 which I think was too big. Each person got to do little cooking and I feel the recipes chosen were mostly whatever would be easiest for a big group. Although Maria kind of gives her background/story in her Airbnb description there’s no storytelling or explanations during the cooking only instructions on how to cook. I think I would still do this experience again but would try to book for a group of 6 maximum for a more intimate setting where we can be unrushed and ask questions. Alternatively, if you have a big group and want to book and entire session for yourself you might enjoy this.

    Can’t recommend this cooking class enough! It was truly the highlight of our entire Greece trip! Maria was kind, patient, and engaging. Her whole staff was very helpful and thoughtful as well. Definitely a must if you’re visiting Paros! Her restaurant is easily accessible via bus if you aren’t staying in the area. She prepared a menu that catered to our dietary restrictions.
