The food was really good authentic Greek and the prices are reasonable. The lamb-in-the-oven is to die for. We would certainly go there again.

We were recommended to visit by our hotel and decided to head out to them on our first evening. We were greeted by a very friendly waiter, who brought out a whole tray of starters to show us what was available. I chose the aubergine and my husband the mushrooms, both of which were delicious. Next I had a lovely... More

Had a great time watching the World Cup game and eating great food at this restaurant! The staff was so friendly and playful, and the food was tasty and fresh. We were tired after a long day of sightseeing, but we felt right at home at this restaurant! Definitely a meal we will not forget!

What a place, what a food, what a service. First, the atmosphere - like a traditional and cozy Greek home. You're welcomed warmly and sincerely, you enjoy the friendly and genuine Greek hospitality. The food. Mixed grill plate for two: reasonable priced, versatile and tasty mix of different kinds of meat, vegetables and fried potatoes. Got so overloaded, it was... More

Had dinner twice there. Nice terrace (eastbound). Varied menu, both fish & meat. Low prices compared to Santorini's average.

We agree with the positive reviews on Simos. A very friendly owner and a lovely young man waiting on us, we sat upstairs in the garden deck -- much to the chagrin of the cat where we chose to sit. The owner brought up a tray of examples of the appetizers, which helped us as we are not experts on... More

My first meal in Santorini was at Simos Taverna. I got hooked on the Santorini salad (thanks Alex!). If you like tomatoes you've gotta try the dish! The grilled octopus was delicous, very fresh and very tender. Stuffed peppers was yummmm! I've had these dishes in many other restaurants in Santorini but nothing can compare to the one at Simon...

Stumbled upon this restaurant on our last night in Santorini, and it ended up being the best meal of our stay. We had the eggplant, octopus salad and giant beans for starters, and stuffed tomatoes with seafood for main. Given a complimentary semolina cake for dessert which was fantastic. Service was great. We chose to eat in the downstairs part... More

Can't recommend this place enough! My husband and I love Greek food and were just after some traditional Greek which was harder to find than we thought. Simos was what we had been looking for! Despite the large menu (which often worries us) the food was delicious and clearly made with care. Service was fantastic and they even stopped us... More
