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.

We had a wonderful lunch at Kallisti Tavern while visiting some of the smaller villages of Santorini. We tried many authentic Greek dishes, all made with fresh local ingredients. The waiter and owner were very friendly and took good care of us. Must try the Saganaki which is a pan-fried Greek cheese. So yummy and save a little room for... More

This is the only restaurant we didn't tip during our 12 days island hopping: they offered the worst service among all restaurants we've been to during our visit to 4 islands! To start we were asked to sit at a hot table with a bit of patchy shades though they had many empty tables in the shade. Then ignored to... More

The setting is beautiful, let down by the total lack of service and poor food quality. I accept that the language could be a barrier, however the lackadaisical approach to serving us was not representative of all other restaurants that we experienced on our trip.

We found the service friendly and our shrimps were delicious! Fresh! The salads were great too. It was the ideal place for a lunch, a bit further from a lot of very touristy and commercial places on the island.

We came to Santorini on a late package deal with Thomsons and the only 'trip' we signed up for with them was going out to Pyrgos for and evening meal. Our Thompsons rep said we would be 'putting something back into Santorini' by going to eat in Pyrgos(?). Unfortunately we were all deposited outside an enormous, modern restaurant which looked...

We stopped at the place on our way back from the light house. Had squid and rabbit. Good simple food, would recommend it for a quick bite! Service was not exceptional, took some time to get the suggestions from the waiter.
