We went to cafe Santorini expecting a good Greek meal. While the menu appears rich and representative of Mediterranean plates, the food is rather mediocre, and does not taste like Greek food. I was disappointed by the food and by the atmosphere.

Service was very good. Food was good, but not outstanding. I would love to go back and give it another chance, but place is very, very noisy. Tables are placed so closely together that you can't help but hear the conversation at the next table. Wanted to love it because I'd heard good things, but would only go back at... More

We just got into town after a long drive and wanted somewhere with good food, nice atmosphere and reasonable prices within walking distance of our hotel. After checking several restaurant review websites, we chose Cafe Santorini and happily for us, this restaurant filled the bill on all accounts. We were 15 minutes early for our 7:15 reservation but were seated... More

This was our first visit, and it won't be our last! In December, as we were looking for the entrance to a nearby Japanese restaurant (I'll write a review for them on another day - it was very good) a very gracious gentleman was walking by - he asked if he could help is find something. He gave us directions... More

A wonderful little restaurant, nice view and cute interior. The food and service were very good, and set a pleasant tone for our lunch. The dishes were well prepare, and showed an effort to make this a special place. The wine list was also very nice and supplied both good inexpensive wines as well as more expensive wines. Old Town...

There's something inspirational about sitting up on a rooftop patio at night with little lights above. I was made to feel special by the staff and that filtered down to my dinner companion. The food must have been delicious but we were so distracted by the good wine. We almost took a turn into the broom closet to smooch on... More

We had an excellent dinner for two, with very friendly service in a pleasant ambiance. I had the grilled kefte kebap and my wife ate the lamb souflaki. Well prepared, generous portions, and nice sides of hummus and tzaziki. The wine list has a very nice selection of Californian, West Coast, and some European wines, and my wife liked the... More

This was our second visit, and the food was again excellent. This time, my wife had the seafood salad and I had the salmon. For desert, we shared an apple tart – thin, without much apple in evidence, but with cinnamon ice cream and lots of caramel sauce, it was very tasty. They always seem to be very busy with... More
