Discover the unique flavours of the Cyclades and learn the traditional Greek Yiayia's (grandmother) secrets of the Parian cuisine.
After having a little aperitif, in a 4-hour cooking class, we are going to prepare a 6-course traditional menu, including a starter, a salad, 3 main dishes (menu, one vegetarian main dish, one with seafood, one with meat) and a dessert, discovering the traditional flavours of Greece!
Then, you are going to sit all together to enjoy cooking, accompanied by wine or ouzo and fresh fruits from the garden!
Mrs. Anezina will give you all the recipes from her grandmother.
The experience includes both cooking and eating.
Bon appetite and cheers!
I love this cooking lesson and I want to recommend it! The chef was amazing!!
The staff is very welcoming, the eggplant dish wes excellent. Nice and quiet location. Family kitchen. Tnx
Nice out door setting, good traditional food, good local wine and friendly service. Great value for money. Would recommend to anyone passing by.
We have visited here 2 years in a raw and the food and service was always beyond expectations. If you want to have a taste of the traditional cuisine mixed with elegance and an intimate authentic atmosphere this is the place in Paros. We plan
My family and I enjoyed a wonderful evening for the Greek night with an amazing variety of delicious food and dancing. Highly recommend this for a great night.
We had a great time at Anezina restaurant. Very tasty food and excellent service by the waiters.Totally recommended!!!
We had diner on Monday July 23. It was an open buffet and greek music special night. The food was amazing. Homey and gourmet. It is a family restaurant with excellent and sincere service delivery. Very pleasant set up typically greek
We had a few hours to spend waiting for the bus to come back to Drios. Very glad we consulted trip advisor and came here for a relaxing lunch. My partner and I shared the zucchini fritters,
The pool area with the grass is amazing for a family with kids.Frindly staff and nice food.high recommended.
Very nice place specially if you have children.The area with the swimming pool is perfect for kids and the food amazing.. Very friendly service and good prices
We stopped here for just some afternoon coffee which was served with delicious cake. The service was really friendly and we also enjoyed the beautiful environment there. Big recommendation!
We enjoyed the most delicious and generous Greek breakfasts here. We had a omelette with olives, feta, tomatoes and capers, and a traditional Greek breakfast of olives, tomatoes, capers, and feta on toast! Served with a hard boiled egg and a small dish of yogurt
The amount of love that Maria puts into her food is so evident, it just exudes from this place! She is truly a special lady and the food is the best we had in all of Greece hands down. Every single dish on two separate
This visit was one of the best authentic Greek cuisine we have discovered in the clycades. We will recommend this place to all people. Looking forward to come back.
Stayed there at the resort. My wife and I treated like family. Food was great, especially the Musaka, fried cheese and fish. My wife loved the tiny olives they grew and prepared and she never liked olives before! Wonderful “Greek Night” Monday with a buffet
Superb home cooked food in a lovely poolside terrace - we couldn't fault it. There's a standard menu and a range of daily specials. Highly recommended
We were staying nearby and read good reviews. The restaurant is poolside inside a small hotel located on the main road as you drive through Drios. Portions are generous and the traditional Greek food is wonderful. The menu is quite small but they have lots
A good fun night with music, wine and food for 25€. The starters and salads were fantastic but we held back thinking that a main course was coming but all that arrived were 3 small skewers of bbq meat which we had very little left
A place to go when you are around the Area, it is A must do not miss IT I will love it Sure will
First of all, Anezina is an incredible place with a great vue on the sea, a swimming pool and all its chairs and tables in white tone. But why you should come (and come back) to Anezina is 2 reasons that few restaurant both have
Great food! Go to Greek night tons of food and dancing. And only 30È. You'll enjoy the outside seeing area with a beautiful view
We stayed in Anezina Village for the second time and had a couple of our meals in the restaurant including the nice greek evening with live music. A friendly welcoming atmosphare and food of high quality. What else coul you wish for ?
Amazing music, friendly service and atmosphere. As the musicians warmed up local people were singing along and dancing. An authentic Greek experience - heartwarming and memorable.
We ate here several times during our September visit to Paros. We enjoyed all of our meals. The Greek salads were delicious. The lamb dishes were well prepared. My favorite was the Monday night buffet, where I got to try other dishes I might not
We discovered this restaurant late in our week long stay in Chrissi Akti but still managed to fit in two visits. I absolutely loved it. Stravros was charming and funny and advised us on our order. They manage to create a sophisticated yet relaxed ambience
During our stay in the hotel we had several dinners at the restaurant. the food was always top! They have a real good kitchen and Stavros is always ready to advice what to choose. Theodara is a perfect and super kind waitress!
My wife and I spent two weeks in Greece, the majority at Anezina Village. It was an amazing experience. The Anezina staff, restaurant, and community was top notch - we plan to go back and visit again for an upcoming anniversary. We enjoyed every second
Nice service but food average. Had a Jazz night which again was very average. Also overpriced for the quality.More
This place is really excellent .Stavros and his wonderful staff need to be applauded. The atmosphere was calm and inviting lovely chilled out music. I ate a feta "pie" with honey and figs wow! .Then I had shrimps and pasta This was excellent and very big portions .my belly was getting
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.
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.
We have been enjoying our delicious meals at the Anezina Restaurant this summer, in an tranquill and beautiful setting by the pool and the garden. This is a very good quality restaurant where you can find a great variety of dishes of the best quality
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!
We booked this cooking class for our honeymoon in Paros and it was such a great experience. It was nice to talk and dine with other travelers who booked the experience as well, it was so leisurely and several courses, we were full! Thank you for a wonderful cultural experience in Greece!
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!
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.
Even in March the food and the hospitality was excellent. We tried the Anezina salad - Geek Moussaka - Meltzanoto and feta cheese with honey. For desert they offer us home made baklava and orange cake
We came first time in 2004 and kept coming every year until today. Genuine Greek restaurant and amazing hotel and service. Maria is the mother of hospitality.
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 nice spot in the middle of Drios town! In a very picturesque hotel village there is this lovely restaurant which serves local specialties and not only. It is like home cooking combined with Greek hospitality. Do not miss the special evenings they also
The best seafood pasta I have had in my life, he mousepad was also very very tasty!! Service very friendly and very attentive!
We stayed in Anezina hotel in July 2019 and ate at the restaurant several times. Honestly, everything we tried was delicious. From the moussaka to the Anezina salad to the seafood spaghetti, every meal was excellent. We also enjoyed very much the buffet and live
We have been coming to Anezina for over ten years. Introduced by RCI (it’s the only such property on the island!) it has never failed to exceed our expectations. The chef, Thannos, is inspired. Under the tutelage of the owner, Maria, the menu truly hits
Just finished dinner today with my husband the food was ABSOLUTELY absolutely perfect .Maria and the stuff were also very very kind I definetally recommend this restaurant The environment was very relaxing and romantic.
We were doing our island tour with an ATV and found this beautiful restaurant meanwhile. The risotto we had was amazing and was filled with flavours to remember not to mention the baked feta we had! Service was excelent and also the atmosphere although it
We visit Anezina restaurant two times during our short stay in Dryos. Moussaka its the BEST in whole Greece. If you plan to visiting Paros, you must go to Anezina directly. Thx so much for your hospitality.
Very good authentic local food, very attentive and nice waitress, beautiful location, reasonable prices. The keftedes were so fluffy and very well seasoned and the Anezina Salad was very tasty! We will definitively come back!
Having visited the restaurant for an early dinner one evening we so impressed with not only the friendliness of the owner and staff but also the fact that they catered for gluten free clients. The prawns in a brandy sauce contained so much alcohol that
Had a great meal - giant beans in a tasty tomato sauce and Aubergine stewed with tomatoes and served with crumbled feta. Both were delicious. But the cherry on top was the Baklava - wow! The service was so friendly. Worth a visit if you’re
Another of our family’s regular haunts when on the island. A small but first class menu enhanced by a magical garden setting.
This restaurant is located in the Anezina village resort. The food here is excellent, the Moussaka is the best we have tasted and we have tried many. Everything is made fresh and if you get a chance to enjoy a greek night on Mondays its
we had an amazing time. Really enjoyed learning to make authentic Greek cuisine. love having the pdf so i can print recipes as well
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!
We had such a great time and learned so much during this cooking class! Maria and her team were so friendly, fun and helpful. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was so fun! I would definitely recommend this experience!
100% must do - food was incredible (More than we could eat), great coaching and the hosts made sure we maximized our time. We ended up staying for two hours after the class having a casual dinner with fellow guests. Again, don’t think about it - just book!
I am so glad we took this cooking class. The food we made was delicious and everyone was extremely friendly. We cooked, laughed, danced and drank the night away. We left with full bellies and recipes to replicate the amazing dishes we made. I highly recommend taking class!
Such a fun experience! The food was amazing, definitely going to use these recipes at home! We were a full class so she added an extra course. Although I couldn’t eat everything because I’m a vegetarian, it was still fun to make some staple Greek dishes. Maria also gave me a separate vegetarian dish since I couldn’t eat 3 of the other items. Thank you!
Stop what you are doing and book this experience. This was amazing! Great drinks, music and food! The whole night was like being at a family dinner. It was so authentic and fun! Meet new friends and had great food and conversation. We also danced a little too! Thank you Maria and crew for an awesome night!
The cooking class was amazing. The staff was very accommodating and added us to the roster late. The 6 course meal is full of flavor, fun and will leave you feeling fully immersed in the Greek cuisine.
Thank you so much for hosting such a memorable afternoon! We loved all of the food and can’t wait to try the recipes at home. We will never forget that experience! Thank you!
Truly wonderful experience! We loved the space, the food, the energy, the group, everything! If you are on the fence, do it! It feels so authentic, fun, and the food is delicious.
My husband and I absolutely LOVED this class! Maria & the entire restaurant staff were wonderful. This was a highlight of our whole vacation. Book this & enjoy!
This was one of the highlights of our trip! Book it and be prepared to have an experience of a life time!!
Absolutely a dream class! Maria & her sous chefs are so sweet and helpful! Maria is a bundle of joy & clearly LOVES to cook & show love through food & she does a tremendous job. She brought 15 strangers together who left being friends & she made everyone laugh and learn! HIGHLY recommend! Amazing hospitality, wine & beautiful location— a highlight of our Greece trip.
Maria was a fantastic story teller and a thoughtful guide. Learning the mythology and history behind the monuments we were seeing was both entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Athens!!
Ok this was ridiculously fun!! Like I thought we would just make some food and eat it - like all the other cooking classes I’ve taken… but it was a wholeee experience! Full blown Mamma Mia moment! They also tailored the food to my dietary needs and it was all delicious. If you’re on the fence, do it!!
lovely truly greek experience. left absolutely stuffed
DONT MISS THIS CLASS!! It is the most fun you will have in Greece
Absolutely the highlight of our day! There was a job for everyone and if there wasn’t, Maria had you drinking. Everyone was so nice and we danced and laughed the night away. Highly recommend it, 100%!!
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!
My husband and I had so much fun doing this experience! We made new friends during our time and even went out to dinner with them that night. It was an unforgettable experience and the food was amazing!!
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!
This was such a fun time! The food was incredible and the host were a great group of folks.
Maria was absolutely amazing!! An absolute firecracker (spirto) full of heart, soul, laughter and passion. Her English is A++ don’t let her fool you. The entire staff was absolutely amazing and friendly. We had an amazing time and highly recommend this experience!
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 fun time learning! The place was so beautiful and relaxing and we loved the cats too!
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 cooking class was so much fun! The cooking itself was so enjoyable and interactive, the food was delicious, and it was a great group of people! We highly recommend!
Great experience and value, first time using Airbnb experience and loved it!
Wonderful experience! Feels like you entered Maria’s personal kitchen where she shared some of her traditional family recipes.
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!
The class was so much fun and everyone was so hospitable. One of the most memorable experiences on this trip - nothing like dancing to Greek music with a bunch of strangers and sharing a meal we cooked together
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.
We had a great time in the kitchen!
Maria’s cooking class was the highlight of our trip to Greece! We had such a lovely time in her beautiful restaurant. We cooked so many dishes which were all delicious and ones we can cook at home. She kept wine flowing throughout the afternoon and even got to learn a Greek dance!
Great evening! Food was wonderful :)
This was an excellent experience! We were warmly welcomed and were accompanied by awesome participants. The food was amazing along with the well planned and executed cooking class.
Did this tour with my girlfriend. It was a super fun time and got to meet new people while cooking multiple different items. The host was super friendly and knowledgeable. All the food tasted amazing and definitely a fun night out!
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.
This was a super fun and hands on experience! Great for a family or just a person who is looking to grow their cooking knowledge Just one thing to remember (come hungry) The people who work there are such a delight and are full of energy and joy :)
Great food and great fun
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.
