Gorgeous views with delicious food and very good service

Delicious food, attentive staff and wonderful location. We ate a wonderful lamb dish which was wrapped in vine leaves, and the sauce was delicious. We sampled mama thira white wine which was very good, we loved santorini wines.

While walking along the coastal pathway we stumbled onto this restaurant. It is a very quaint place with excellent views of the water and the area near the caldera. We tried a delicious fried tomato ball. It was delicious. The place is very clean and servers are friendly and knowledgable about the menu.

Wonderful place with fantastic food, simply a big step above other taverns in Santorini. We loved the food in first place, then of course the cozy atmosphere and surely the scenery. A lot of attention is given to the quality of the ingredients, which is the core of true Mediterranean cuisine, Greek one included. A family run business, we have... More

Spent my birthday there with a friend. It was beautiful. The food was great. If you ask for a table, go upstairs on the terrace as it has a spectacular view.

We visited Mama Thira as recommended by locals in Santorini as a nice spot to have dinner and watch the sunset in Firostefani rather than the very busy Oia. It was a lovely choice. There was a good selection of food, all the regular Greek cuisine and nice cocktails too. Try and get there early or book a seat to... More
