So sweet charming honest food and people

Touring around in Santorini and by accident one noon we ended up in Pyrgos. Small cute tavern with authentic Greek food. Nice friendly people and some authentic food ideas for the cold winter nights.

This restaurant has made to order food that was very fresh. The eggplant was very good. I also enjoyed the fried cheese. I tried the swordfish which was a little dry. But one of the best aspects of the restaurant is you can take beautiful sunset photos if you go up the stairs behind the restaurant.

Great tasting authentic Greek food, great service and reasonable price. I'd go back again! From the look of it you wouldn't expect much but definitely worth a try.

We went here on our first night in Pyrgos. It is conveniently in the tiny square and looked busy. Beautiful view and friendly service. Value for money. Not the best food we have ever had but pleasant enough. There are others in Pyrgos which are definitely much better but equally some a lot worse.

DH enjoyed the moussaka. My grilled sea bass was cooked perfectly and I worked hard to get all the flesh off the bones through I didn't eat the dry coleslaw and cooked broccoli which accompanied it. We ordered baklava to share with tea and a cappuccino. It was a pleasant lunch.

If it wasn't for the placement of this taverna then I don't think we would have gone. We stood there for a good 5 minutes before anyone came out to greet us/seat us. I felt the waiter to be quite patronising, and tried to throw a few digs at my other half as well. The food was okay, pretty average... More

Being vegetarian we are apprehensive about walking into a restaurant without reading reviews or at least giving the menu a thorough look through. However we made an exception for this one - it felt welcoming and we were not disappointed. We received a warm welcome and had some amazing food. The veg menu is limited - if you exclude the...

Winter and early at midday only one restaurant was open to us. The owner opened for us and what a great surprise when we discovered this place. The owner took the time to explain all the recipes, typical delicious Santorini delicacies, and he lit a fire in the fireplace. The cuisine was of course excellent for a very affordable price...
