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...

Was welcomed warmly and three of us ordered the moussaka, a greek salad, prawns & mussels - the food was top notch & the moussaka was the best I've ever eaten - this is saying something as I'm greek and have eaten it many times - it's even better than my mums! The meat & sauce in the dish were... More

my family and I ate there a couple of times while staying in Pyrgos. It is a no-thrill but solid eatery with tasty and unpretentious local fare at a fraction of the price you will pay in Oia or Thira. As too often in Santorini, the sea food is frozen but they don't try to sell it for fresh stuff... More

I have no idea where those people who wrote the recent horrible reviews ate, but it strains credibility to think it was here. We had a perfectly nice lunch here late in the afternoon on 9/26. The man who waited on us was very nice and helpful, and his rudimentary English was way better than my Greek. The service was... More

On one of our days out exploring we headed up to Pyrgos, we sat in one of the other restaurants nearby which seemed to have too few staff to cope, we decided to try this place after sitting in that one for 10 minutes and not being given a menu. We were only here for lunch which consisted of two... More

I went near this person sitting in front of the cash register and he immediately asked "Yes" I replied that we are... More

I love this local taverna with great food, welcoming host, and authentic atmosphere. Have eaten here several times with local friends and the food is always great and prices very reasonable.

Located conveniently on the central square, this relatively unknown taverna is one of Pyrgos's best kept secrets. Held in very high regard by the locals, this was one of the best culinary experience we'd had in Thira. The top picks are the fava, the grilled white aubergines, the deep fried tomato balls, the stuffed Santorini tomatoes, the deceptively titled 'lamb... More
