I love this taverna. It is typical of the Greek taverna which existed when I first visited Santorini in 1967. Our first meal here was in 2012 & we sought it out on our return this year. The food is good,the price is even better & the atmosphere is wonderful. The owner is a real old style Greek - very... More

This is, as you can see from the other reviews, a good low price alternative to the other Imerovigli tavernas, which are rather expensive. At the other restaurants you pay for the beautiful volcano view that you don't have here. Very good food for reasonable prices. Try as an appetizer the feta saganaki (baked white feta cheese). My gyros platter... More

We stayed in Imerovigli for five nights. After trying a few top ranking restaurants on Tripadvisor we asked the hotel owner to recommend a restaurant which the local would eat there and he recommended Anestis.It turned out great and we went back twice. This is the only restaurant we went back twice during our Santorini trip. The food was very... More

Really good and genuine greek food with honest prices. Moussaka (7€) homemade and very delicious (not too much eggs and bechamelle like in the other commercial restaurants) Fried eggplant with tsatsiki just cooked fantastic (3€) Wine normal and good (1/2lt 4€) A dinner (20€ for two people) very typical and simple...very close to Fira but very far from fira's restaurants...

During a recent 6-day stay in Imerovigli, we ate here three separate times. It is half the price of the places overlooking the caldera and much more authentically Greek as it is run by a Greek family who all help with the business. We had each one of the vegetarian appetizers. They are all excellent - thought the fried white... More

We went here for lunch. We were the only ones at the restaurant but it was a very pleasant experience. The restaurant has large windows and has a nice view of the other side of the island (beach) not overlooking the Caldera. The service was nice and friendly. The food was enjoyable -- we had the grilled octopus, fava beans,... More

We were staying in Imerovigli so went there for lunch. Got the Shrimp salad and some house wine. Everything was very good. Would eat there again.

After reading some bad reviews here decided to give this restaurant a try. We had stopped for beers the previous few evenings and were made very welcome. We had grilled peppers with balsamic vinegar to start and stifado for mains and both courses were lovely. This appears to be a family run restaurant where locals gather to eat as well,... More
