Went here several times and the food,service and atmosphere was excellent every time,(hence the return visits).Many of the restaurants in perissa offer similar menus at similar prices,so quality of food and service is key.The Xani scores high on both counts.Their mixed fish platter ranked as one of the tastiest and most satisfying meals i had.Attentive service and a relaxed atmosphere...

We've seen this restaurant many times without visiting it. This year we thought we would give it a go having read a few positive reviews, but our experience was a mixed one. The restaurant is on a busy road and by a crossroads, which means it's pretty noisy. If you can cope with that, then it's well worth trying the... More

It did not disappoint. for less than 18 euros we had the mixed grill for two, salad, Tsatsiki, chips AND a carafe of wine. The salad and wine... More

We had a long day at a tour and dined late as my fiancé wanted spagetti while I wanted a traditional chicken souvlaki. We were surprised with the size of the meals especially after having tried so many Italian and Greek meals, this was anazing and got free watermelon and liquere shots at the end!

Very surprised to see this restaurant so low. You cannot leave Santorini without going to this restaurant and trying the fish platter. At only around 22euros you get the best amount of fish for two people you can imagine, as well as 0.5l of wine, large potion of chips and wine. The even throw in a free spirit at the... More
