excellent service, excellent food

This is a small unassuming place in the middle of no major tourist destination or any particular place of interest. Dont let the look of this place deceive you. It is a marvellous place with great interior decoration, very friendly helpful staff and scrumptious food. We were very pleasantly... read more

Was looking forward to eating here but once again you should never get your hopes up as the disappointment is all the worse to bear. Hadn't booked but a few tables were available although not where I would have chosen but never mind.The tables are jammed in, a bit too close for my liking We started looking over the menu... More

The service at this restaurant is great. The staff are very welcome and friendly. Unfortunately the food doesn't live up to what I expected. The swordfish I ordered was slightly raw in places and my partner's steak was rather chewy.

Not too impressed with this restaurant. Disappointed as two things I wanted were not available. The starter was very nice but no sooner bad I finished eating it and the plates had not even been moved , I was served my main meal. Waiter was lovely though and very friendly .

It's a very friendly restaurant. We had chance to see all of the fresh made starters before we order. This is such amazing service. The squid is incredibly fresh with fresh salad as well. The 'beef burger' is really huge and suits my husband a lot! There is also a lovely cat sitting next to us. Probably because we ordered... More

We ate here our first night in santorini. We were extremely tired and wanted something low key and near our hotel. Our hotel recommended Simos and it did not disappoint. This place is warm and friendly. The staff are really great at making you feel welcomed, I felt like family! We had the seafood platter for 2 along with various... More

Good food, reasonably priced, and friendly service. The mixed grill seafood was fresh and tasty. The owner was nice enough to amend the menu for us. Window seats will give to you some nice views to the blue sky and their local beer is worth a try.

Very friendly staff. Non veg food was delicious. They did not have options for vegetarians though. The location and the ambience both are great!

We were a group of vegetarians & non vegetarians, and vasillis helped us with deciding what to have. The fava we had here was quite good and better than what we had at a few other places in fira, and overall we enjoyed the food. The ambience is also very relaxing and warm, and vasillis makes it ever so enjoyable... More
