Visited this place on a vacation to Santorini. The staff was wonderful as was the food. The views from the restaurant overlooking the caldera were stunning. A must visit when in Santorini

A very nice and worm place with a fantastic view, delicious greek food and very good local bulk wines. Suitable for all hours and occasions but the local is small, so better you reserve a table if you don't want to miss it. At Mama Thira Tavern the quality is at home and it comes in a very natural manner... More

We stopped here for a light lunch and drinks after strolling through Fira. They had an octopus drying in the window, pretty cool. Lunch was a light appetizer of spinach/egg/onion fried balls, Hawaiian smoothie and Vulcan beer. The balls were a little undercooked. We sat on the terrace opposite the restaurant. It was a sunny day and it was difficult... More

My husband and I were in Santorini for 5 nights and visited this restaurant 3 times - once for lunch and twice for dinner. We tried their taramasalata, feta in pastry, chicken portion, moussaka and on our last night we had their seafood platter - all meals were delicious. The staff were helpful, giving us information on the food and... More

We stopped at this small taverna for some drinks one hot August afternoon. The staff were very friendly and certainly had plenty of character. The menu looked okay and although we didn't eat here, I would have gone back for a budget dinner (in the end we didn't have time). I'd recommend you give it a try as other reviewers... More

We ate here on our last night (of six) in Santorini and the food was excellent, even in comparison with the generally very high standard everywhere else we had eaten on the island. It is a little different from many of the other restaurants in the area as it is mostly indoors but the atmosphere, welcome and service were superb.... More

Authentic Greek restaurant with exceptionally friendly and funny staff. Myself and my husband shared the mixed grill for 2 and struggled to finish it. Very enjoyable evening.
