Fresh and authentic. Fava dip, typical of Santorini, for 4€ was good. It was our first time having it... read more

We read about this taverna on Wiki and were excited to find right in the middle of town. After a couple of weeks of gyros, souvlakis and chips we were so happy to have a 'home cooked' meal with complex flavours. The chicken in lemon sauce was amazing and the daily special of lamb with vegetables and cheese was so... More

I was shocked at some of the negative reviews. I noticed that these seemed to come in the recent weeks and I wonder if the difficult times for Greece has somehow affected the mood and/or quality of the place. I had been in Santorini with a girlfriend 27 long years ago and we had found Nikolas on the recommendation of... More

We didn't eat, although the restaurant was highly recommended by our rep, who advised there are often queues for lunch there was no queue and available tables, basic menu and very simple cafe style. I was looking at the menu and told I was not allowed in as not wearing the right clothes. Midday when it was over 30 and... More

We ate here recently on our holiday - the Moussaka is by far the best we had! The service is not brilliant, it feels rushed and unfriendly which is a shame as the food is good value for money and tasty.

Have been to this taverna many times of the years. Wonderful traditional food in a great setting. Not glitzy or touristy.

The Shrimp Spaghetti was amazing with lots of lovely fat prawns, and the wine was cheap and really, really, good! Recommended. No reservations but they will always squeeze you in!
