Decent food I guess, but seems to be highly recommended by the locals. The place is hard to find, there's no sign visible from the road, you just have to remember to look for this big church and park there, and then walk in from the parking lot. Maybe we didn't order the right thing, but the 3... read more

The ambiance of the place is fantastic. Some of the food was great (phyllo covered feta, fava beans, olives and cheese that are set out at the beginning) and some was less special (grilled mushrooms, sausage with mustard sauce, smoked pork on pita). I heard rave reviews from a few locals (the owner of Santorini Brewing Company said it's one... More

We arrived without reservations but they were nice enough to find a place for us inside. Too bad, because the view was wonderful at night. Food was excellent, probably the best we had on the island (an island FULL of great food). Service was excellent as well. Get the cheese stuffed Kataifi with blackberry sauce. It will blow your mind.

We came here after reading the reviews and it was great! We had a great evening. The food tasted homemade and delicious, the service was nice and friendly- the other patrons were all locals (I guess b cause it's off season). The setting is like being in a little cave. I've attached a picture. The grilled feta cheese with honey... More

Loved everything about the place. The atmosphere was awesome, the service was phenomenal. Highly recommended going here if you're on the Island. My husband and I went there twice.

The place to be in EXO GONIA, rural and pure Greek. You have to go once if you are on Santorini. Tip, make a reservation, otherwise no place (because is so good to eat en sit outside)

Lovely food with an amazing view. It has the best white cheese pies I've had and very friendly members of staff. Sadly there was a long line of people before us. Overall it was a lovely visit

It's where the locals/regular islanders go and for good reason! Possibly the best meal (but they all were great) we had on the island, but wasn't the most expensive. Fabulous Greek fare.

Metaxy Mas is a small tavern located in the village of Exo Gonia. During the summer months the tavern takes over the school yard to make for an unforgetable outside dining experience. The views from the hill are stunning, the staff is super friendly and the food is just great! We were so lucky to have a vacation rental just... More

Great local food, authentic atmosphere. One of the highlights of our holidays and definitely worth a trip out of town.
