We felt just like one of their extended family. Wonderful food and so kind and generous... What a lovely sense of hospitality. Tasty food.... Especially grilled prawns, Greek salad and roast pork, all served with a wedge of lemon and a smile. Brilliant at accommodating food allergies and personalising to your own special tastes.. Superb!

Excellent taverna with a surprisingly good view of the sunset, as well. We sampled a number of local tavernas during our stay on Santorini and as far as tavernas are concerned, Aeolos was our favourite. Better than the Good Heart which is ranked #1 in Akrotiri. In comparison, the service in Aeolos is more genuine and the food is tastier.... More

Located in a wonderful place in front of the caldera, we enjoyed our lunch with Greek specialties. They were fast and friendly. The appetizers were great, especially the melizanosalata. I am of Greek origins and I know very well Greek cuisine and every dish was simply perfect. My son had a portion of grilled shrimps and they were fresh, well... More

Went here our first night in Santorini after arriving late on a flight from Athens. We did not have a car yet, but no worries...owner of the taverna came and picked us up at the hotel...and drove us home after! Food - homemade everything with taste of my yiayia's cooking growing up. Family run and it shows. We tried another... More

We ordered fried zucchini, spicy feta cheese, garlic bread (spicy), chicken with mustard, chicken souvlaki. Absolutely wonderful. Good portions. Reasonable price. I would go there again if I ever return to Santorini

After so many amazing meals in Greece. I was rather disappointed in the food. It lacked taste and it felt more like a tourist hub than anything else. The staff was however very nice and friendly.

If the sunset is what you are interested in, there are better spots; however, this spot is an excellent choice if you love honest Greek appetisers! The mains are good but don't quite live up to the first course options. The family who owns the restaurant is extremely hospitable and if you're lucky fresh figs or home dried tomatoes might...

Perfectly cooked dishes and we have tried everything, not one negative whatsoever, friendly family run taverna, remembered us as soon as we arrived with our drink waiting, gorgeous panoramic views of the caldera, a must visit when traveling to santorini. Very reasonable prices, catered to suit all budgets, excellent... Just go!!
