The T.A. location listing (Fira) is wrong.This restaurant is between the villages of Pyrgos and Exo Gonia ,approx. 20 minutes by car from Fira.Otherwise book well in advance since this place is always full during high season.Arrive early for dinner to admire the view ( no sunset though )and then enjoy the excellent Greek cooking of the Cretan owners and...

We went to metaxymas twice during our stay after a recommendation from our hotel owner. We were not disappointed! The first time we went we didn't book and had to sit inside which was a little uncomfortable as it was very hot and busy with waitresses in and out, but, the food was lovely and we loved the generosity, free...

Fantastic food in a beautiful location and reasonably priced. Try and eat after sunset as the courtyard is stunning when lit at night (sunset is behind you out of view anyway)

First we tried to find Metaxi Mas in Fira, but figured out that it was situated between Exo Gonia and Pyrgos. As this place has many and good recommendations, we had high expectations. Unfortunately we fought with alot of flies during our meal. Maybe we choose the wrong dishes, it was ok - but nothing fantastic. Although, the service and... More

This restaurant was recommended by the locals and appears to be used mostly by locals. Food and service and menu choice are all very good, as is the wine selection. Setting is also beautiful. Very happy with it. Went there twice. The hot starters are awesome.

A nice break from the usual touristy food of the main centres. Different menu specialising in Cretan taverna cuisine. Worth the short ride from Fira

We were walking from Kamari to Pyrgos and our bellies got hungry right when we saw the "taverna" sign in Exo Gonia...our luck! The menu is different from the majority of restaurants in the island. The prices were reasonable, waitresses lovely, relaxed atmosphere and the food..hmmm even the dressings going on both our salads were fantastic. We were given nibles... More

We visited Metaxi Mas before heading on to the Open Air Cinema in Kamari. This restaurant had been recommended to us by a couple we met during our stay on the island and we had also read excellent reviews. We arrived shortly after 7pm and were seated promptly, however this was lucky as others arriving afterwards without a reservation were... More

What an amazing experience! Have dined here twice and both were fantastic evenings. Friendly, attentive service, amazing food and great value for money. The location is stunning with fantastic views. Ideal if you want to get away from the usual tourist traps in Fira and Oia and go where the locals eat.

Visited Santorini for the first time - saw the good reviews on Trip Advisor and also got recommendations from a friend who works as a travel guide on the Island. Went with my family of four and were seated on the terrace with a perfect view to the sea. Recommend to make reservations in advance. While waiting for our ordering,... More
