Great traditional Greek food

service was excellent. The food was very good and very traditional. The lamb was excellent. The outside view watching the sunset is wonderful however be warned that it is very bright until the singles down over the caldera but well worth it!!

This restaurant is definitely the highlight of our trip to Santorini. We ordered greek salads, cod fish, chicken, and pasta. Every dish was a success. We even ate here twice because we're really a fan of their fried Cod fish! The tomato dip sauce was also a highlight, it is always served as a starter. As we open the menu,... More

We had lunch here on one of the days in Fira. This place is a real find. Great food, service was amazing. We had a table outside which was nice but inside is full of character also, so just as nice. The history of the place is amazing having been in the family for so long, and you can tell... More

We were advised that Aktaion is one of the best restaurants in the area and that for one meal we could live without a view. Our adviser was correct. The food is terrific. Have the grilled chicken. Start off with the haddock-like mousse, which has almonds and is memorable. Santorini is not an island of great food. Our experience was... More

A fantastic little find. This restaurant offer traditional greek food, at reasonable prices, but more then that they really take pride in what they offer. The presentation has thought behind it, and they do try and push the boundaries of "traditional" somewhat. I had cod fillet with a beetroot purée on the side. It was superb. So great food, friendly... More

Visited this restaurant on a Monday night around 7pm with a member of my family. Was recommended by the Manager of the villas we were staying at. Enjoyed a two course meal (main & dessert) accompanied by two 500ml carafes of red & white wine each. Total cost of €52 which we thought was more than reasonable. We had the... More

This restaurant was reommended by our hotel in Fira as a good family run olace with Santorinian cuisine. It is small and driving in the evening we missed it at first but itbis in the main road to Oia just outside Fira itself. We were seated outside after a short wait. The staff was very friendly and explained any dishes... More

Ate there twice - reasonably good service, food was mixed quality. The pork is mediocre (rather dry), chicken is ok. Shrimps with spinach is good, but only 4 shrimps is a tad little. The lamb is good, albeit slightly overcooked. The fish is excellent.
