Ate dinner here, made a reservation after walking by and noticing the view. The food was very good, we liked everything that we ordered. I got the souvlaki with three meats. The lamb was delish. My wife's fish was also very tasty. We even got free desert when we mentioned that it was our... read more

We ate here on our first of four unforgettable nights in spectacular Santorini. It was not a good start but thankfully every other meal was fine and one in particular, Mezzo, was incredible. Mama Thira works hard to create a homely ambience downstairs with their art directed display. Sadly, like so many tourist orientated restaurants, it stops there. We had... More

This is the best restaurant in Firostefani in my view. Really friendly owner who works tirelessly along with all the great staff. Brilliant position along top path with great view for sunset. Typically Greek, quality food and not as commercial or expensive as others close by. Highly recommend.

We were recommended by a friend to dine here and we were not disappointed. In fact we were so delighted with the wonderfully warm hospitality of the staff and managers and with the quality of the food. A short walk along the well worn track from Fira, I would strongly recommend at least one visit to this fabulous restaurant.

Wonderful ambience ... Food was good (prawns and calamari) with house wine and baklava for dessert - all very good (did not knock my socks off) - reasonable cost

Mama Thira is a popular place, a little more pricy as the other restaurants but worth the visit. Yes, it can be very windy up there, sitting on the terracce is not always a pleasure. but the service is friendly and the food is good.

We stopped in for dinner on a rare rainy day. We ordered gyros and were disappointed. too much bread and too little filling. The atmosphere is lovely, and the view is par for the sunset side of the island--stunning. but we had better food at every other place we stopped in Greece.

Service is exceptional, food was very good with lots of options. Great view of the sunset above the restaurant and then have dinner to watch the final light go down over the caldera.

Went here on a recommendation, turned out to be so so. The restaurant is on two levels, we stayed downstairs which is smaller but cosier. The problem is that after sundown, with the wind in the wrong direction, the front door is left open far too much so that anyone within twenty yards of it gets a real draught. The... More
