overall it was a lovely visit

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.

We couldn't understand why people are so crazy about this place. It seemed rather modest to us. Everything good but definitely not worth going that far and waiting for so long. We've eaten at much better places on the island

Probably one of the 5 best places to eat in Santorini. Definately the best value for money restaurant in Santorini. My favorite main disches was the fillet in vinsanto sauce and the chicken fillet with vegetables. Favorite starter by far the cheese kataifi which can make a great desert too. You really can't go wrong with metaxy mas.

What a view. You might want to give them a shot just for the view looking over the valley. This restaurant came highly recommended by the gentlemen who ran our hotel. They said that it is a local favorite and offers the most delicious food. They definitely were not wrong. We were told that the name means "Keep It Secret",... More

We chose this restaurant for our 16th wedding anniversary celebration because the locals recommended it on 3 separate encounters. And it did not disappoint, the sevice was excellent and the food delicious. Luckily we chose a spot inside the cozy interior because it rained that night. Traveler tip - not the easiest walking to in high heels as there are... More

This place is popular likely because of the TA reviews but it is worth it. The food was delicious and would definitely come back here.

It is relatively hard to find behind the church there is a big sign Tavern on the wall of the parking. Then walk down a small street of the large steps of the church. A reservation is necessary as the restaurant is equally patronized by local residents and visitors which indicates the good value for money. At first sight service... More
