This place is famous for its lamb dish, a receipt that have lived for generations. It contains the sweet wine made at Santorini, vinosanto, it put a very special taste to the lamb and it is so well cooked. Location is packed in the evening and it can be hard to get a table if you have not made a... More

We booked a table recently and were escorted to a small table in the corner which was warm. We wanted a traditional taverna and this place has been here years and years. The welcome was fine - the bread and tsatziki wasn't brilliant. Greek salad so so. We had moussaka and souvlaki for mains and they were piping hot and... More

I have s Greek back ground so I look for something special, and this is. Over the last : days we have had various dishes, one better than the next. I enjoyed the fact that this tended to be more authentic Santorinian than others. You must book but it is worth the wait.

Really really good food. I adored the moussaka and my husband said this was the best lamb he had on the island.

I have been coming back here for twenty years and the quality remains! The location is both central and quiet. The view is breathtaking. It looks like I will be a repeat customer for years to come.

Aktaion has been around for many decades and has a reputation for the high quality of its food and the freshness of its raw materials. Better to reserve a table if you wish to visit because it is very popular and can get crowded. Try the mussels with capers or a local recipe of pasta with tomato sauce, garlic and... More
