Best babaganoush since Boston

This is a Greek/Lebanese retaurant in a strip malls of restaurants across from NMSU. The food is great! I was introduced to babaganoush in Harvard Square in the 1970's and have searched it out ever since, sometimes happily, sometimes not so. Santorini' s is exceptional!

Santorini's is my favorite Las Cruces restaurant. In a town that has Mexican cuisine on practically every corner (I like Mexican food!), this restaurant stands out for it's excellent Greek/Lebanese food. It is located across the street from the NMSU Center for the Arts, on E University Avenue. It really is more of a cafe atmosphere as it is not... More

It was late in the afternoon. The sun was starting to set and as it did me and my lady friend entered into Santorini's. As we entered we past a false wall and entered into the dining room. In the dining room played what seemed like MTV except all in Greek and with a strange aspect to all the videos,... More

On a recent trip to Las Cruces, we had lunch here twice--it was so good, we dragged our friends along to eat there the next day. The first time I had the Lamb Gyros--savory lamb, fresh veggies, and wonderful soft just-made pita bread. The second time I had the vegetarian sampler with falafel, dolmades and hummus. It was beautifully laid... More

We like another restaurant in Las Cruces of this similar type, so we thought we would give this one a try. The restaurant it self is a bit of a dump, they need to find a paint store. Any other restaurant in Las Cruces that we go to will accommodate my gluten intolerance and dairy allergy, this restaurant would not.... More

I really enjoy Mediterranean food so I've tried Santorini's twice with friends. Each time the service I receive is horrible. During my last visit, the server messed up on my order and when I asked him to correct it, he and the kitchen staff started talking negatively about me. I was so offended I told them to cancel the order... More

I recently moved to the SW and was thrilled to find a different ethnic food. I was very pleasantly surprised with the food. The restaurant is very unassuming, but the food it great! I loved the gyros and falafal salad! I have been back a few times already. The prices are very reasonable, and you get a lot of food... More

Drove in from Tucson on our way home to Albuquerque and the great recommendations made this place jump out. I was craving Mediterranean and ordered the felafel side dish (with hummus and some salad veggies), a skewer of chicken, and a side salad. My husband ordered the vegetarian sampler (with hummus, dolmas, and baba ganoush) and the Greek salad. He... More

We were staying in Las Cruces for only one night and craving falafel. Based on reviews here we decided to give this place a try. We frequently eat Greek/Lebanon food during our travels and were anxious to try Santorinis. Imagine our disappointment when we were told that they didn't have it. Nope, all out. We then inquired about tabouli. No,... More

We try to eat here at least once a week if not twice. The food is amazing and the pricing is more than fair. The chicken gyro is perfect and we have never found a single piece of gristle in any of the meat (we are usually vegetarian and very picky about our meat). We bring all our friends and... More
