We went 2 times to this restaurant. Great food and nice service at Firostefani. The waiter even spoke some words in portuguese. I tryed: marinated chicken fillets with white eggplant, cherry tomatoes, cappers and Vinsanto; shrimps with spinachs and Ouzo; Octopus with cardomon, milk and Ouzo. All was very good.

When you order cod and get a different fish, after waiting 30 minutes, if not longer, that says it all.

We found this place by asking someone on the street to recommend a good lunch spot. We were lucky to get a table outside as the place filled up very quickly. This was traditional taverna food prepared very creatively, and the result was some of the best food we had on our trip. The rolled eggplant and Greek salad were... More

A lovely little traditional family restaurant in Firostefani. You get a really nice Greek feel from this place and different from any of the other restaurant around. We went here for lunch and enjoyed it.

If you want to eat traditional greek food, best choice. The mousaka and the zuchini pie are very good, but all food look very good.

We see that some had a disappointing experience in Aktaion in Firostefani, Santorini. We went there twice in four days in late September 2014 and we felt that it took Greek/Santorini food to a good modern level. We wouldn't say our experiences were perfect, in the sense that the eggplant appetizer on one day could have had better seasoning or... More

Had a lovely meal in this restaurant, lamb was excellent and my wife had a beef dish in tomato sauce which had a curry flavour, would go again if we go back to Santorini
