We were recommended this place by the woman in the post card shop. We thought it was good and at lunch time all the tables were taken. Looks and feels authentic which is in line with the "since 1956". Reasonably priced too boot!

We went to Nikolas on recommendation. A traditional place with old style wooden chairs, paper table cloths, religous icons on the wall and Greek music playing. Just how a Greek restaurant should be. Nikolas was the man who met us at the door. He made us sit under the ceiling fan because there is no air-conditioning. We had been told... More

I've been there just once during my permanence in santorini, I thought was a characteristic restaurant seeing the interior decoration, but i was wrong, the food wasn't bad but I expected something much better than that, i've done more than 1 hour of queue but in the end it doesn't worth it..

I stumbled on this restaurant quite out of the blue whilst looking for somewhere for a late lunch. Feels very traditional. I had a main course of chicken, rice and potatoes, which arrived unnervingly quickly after I had ordered. Nevertheless it was very tasty and enjoyable and was washed down with some excellent local red wine and a Mythos. The... More

Delicious stuffed squid with soft rice, the "Moussaka" is nice and the "Saganaki" a bit salty. also, there is no air conditioner inside, take your own discretion if you want to try this restaurant in hot weather. Also, The old man is funny and passionate.

This place seems a traditional restaurant in the city center. The menù present fresh fish but i think that it have been fished the year before. So bad.

Family owned restaurant recommended in Rick Steve's "Mediterranean Cruise Ports". Great, very personal service and outstanding food. Eat earlier rather than later because this place gets very busy later with locals.

Stumbled upon this place on our first afternoon looking to get away for the tourist scene. Pros: Food: Had the calamari for 10€. Fresh and tasty. Just great. Also had a greek salad for 6,50€. Fresh and authentic. Fava dip, typical of Santorini, for 4€ was good. It was our first time having it, we kind of thought it tasted... 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
