Food was good and view was amazing

We had lunch here during our stay in Santorini and I must say it was very good. The staff was very nice and view was amazing. Do give them a try.

We have been dining a lot around Santorini during our holiday.This Tavern is the most beautiful place inside out I have seen!The stunning views,location no wonder why it's an expensive place,you can tell that the owner has invested a lot to make it candy!However you can find the same Greek dishes in other places much more cheaper. I was disappointed... More

The restaurant is perfectly located to catch an amazing sunset. The food was delicious and the stuff very frendly and attentive. Santorini salad was the best that i had so far and the red snapper was fresh and absolutely delicious. I would defιnitely visit again this lovely tavern. Highly recommented!!!!!!!

The visit to Mama Thira's this evening was just awful. Rude staff. Terrible, overpriced food not well prepared with any kind of quality in mind. I can't believe the staff would think its ok to serve food this sub par. I will spare you the examples, you should just turn around now. The last straw was bringing out 3 entrées... More

We stopped at Mama Thira Tavern on the way to Fira. It was a lovely decorated restaurant with great view. The food was nice (mainly seafood) but we find it a bit pricy. Overall, experience was nice.

Excellent presentation, well presented, delicious, upmarket take on local produce in a pretty ambient - book a table i Summer and ask for one by the window otherwise you won't get the Caldera view. Prices are in line with other restaurants along the cliff at Firostefani. We enjoyed our evening and setvice too was good.

Enjoyed the food, service and view at lunch time. Never ate there at night waiter was very nice and helpful. We were downstairs on a windy day in October and could admire the view in comfort.

Thank Jenni M
