Great Mediterranean Food

Stopped for take out this evening. Have eaten there many times in the past. If your looking for Mediterranean in the area, then this should be your choice. Small space indoors with a few sidewalk tables. Service is always positive and nice to deal with. Even when picking up take out I found... read more

We were walking along laurel St, looking for a good place to eat, we tried this restaurant which was more casual than the others. I ordered the Gyros ($9) which came with the lemon chicken rice soup and chips and it was really good. The hubby ordered the lamb kabob which was also good but he felt it was overpriced... More

Not to mention great wine. The owner/server was warm and friendly. The decor was warm and inviting. The food was excellent. One of the best falafel appetizers we've ever had. One of our favourite dinners of the trip. Reasonably priced and a gem.

Santorini is perfect for lunch -- simple food, well-prepared, and served quickly. It is good for dinner if you want Mediterranean food from a short menu without a fancy setting. With that, the price is also very reasonable. When we eat out, this is one of our favorite places.

always love that Mediterranean food that is served at Santorini, a small restaurant but certainly worth it. The owner is always there to greet you and the food is always great, from the kabobs to my favorite the lamb shank, always cooked right, and with that great flavorful sauce. The salads are great too, and they have a good selections... More

Santorini has a good location on Laurel St, with a few outside tables for when the weather is good. It's a reliably good place to get a Gryo for lunch. However, most of the food on the menu is pretty basic. Had a Lamb Kebob for dinner tonight. Five medium-sized chunks of lamb, one slice of red bell pepper, one... More

this is one of our favorite restaurants. Edward owns the restaurant at the end of Laural Street, Mythos, also, but we prefer this. The food is simple, to the point and very reasonable. Sitting outside, eating his potato chips and baba ganouj is a great experience.
