Great accidental discovery. A charming cave taverna which offers a welcome alternative to the identical tourist menus found everywhere else. Lots of praise for the staff and menu and wonderful views and location. Only one criticism - a dishonest policy about claiming all tables are reserved except the ones at the very back. We were told this and made to... More

I am not one to write reviews, but this is one of the best meals I have ever had. Everrrrr. Worth the 1km walk from pyrgos. Outstanding food, in fact so good we have already decided we are going back tomorrow, at risk of trying any other food. Must visit.

Metaxi Mas is perched in a small hill town with an amazing view over the back half of Santorini, well away from the caldera and its crowds. The view is incredible and the atmosphere authentic: Greek birthday parties, local cats strolling by, and a charmingly uneven cobblestone patio. The food is great: unpretentious, delicious, and takes advantage of local ingredients... More

We we recommended tho s place by our local guide on the island and we drove to the place 2 days later at the Pyrgos Village near the big Church atop. The location is tucked away in a small street from the Car park across a Kindergarden School. The Restaurant is untouched by time and looks original , green, colourful... More

This was the best restaurant we ate in Santorini. We read the reviews and found our way there in our rented car. We had initially drove up a wrong road that led us to a very steep hilltop which gave fabulous views but made me very nervous because of the steepness and narrow road. Anyhow, we found our way here... More

We were staying near Firostefani, and let me tell you, this was worth the cab ride over to Pyrgos. Super-friendly service, bustling and warm atmosphere (sit outside if you can, and don't forget to reserve), delicious food, cheap local wine, and the glitter of the ocean nearby - what more could you ask for in a restaurant on Santorini? We... More

The best quality / most amazing restaurant in santrorini! Great menu and service! The inside looks like a tranditional cretan house. Warm and lovely. Better make reservation before cause it's not that big inside.

Recommended by the people where we rented - they were going there the day we arrived - and indeed on a rainy day we arrived to a busy relaxed place. Some people sat outside, we sat inside and were treated to a glass of tsiporo/raki and something to nibble while the food was prepared. Imaginative and tasty. Great to get... More

Metaxi Mas takes you back to how tavernas used to be, only elevated to a modern day level of service and cuisine to match.Consistent with good food and friendly atmosphere. If you have not had the Feta in filo pastry with honey and sesame seeds, it's a 'must'. We love the place, our guests love the place and the locals... More

This restaurant is surely the hardest to find on the island. But once you've found (and it did take us some time), its like finding the holy grail of greek taverns. Hidden covertly, yet beautifully behind and under a typical yellow byzantine church in the cute village of Pyrgos, this gem is nothing but a foodies orgasm. I have been... More
