We went with a group and had an excellent fish dinner. Our waiter suggested the accompanying dishes for our fish and the food just kept coming. All was excellent! The only warning is fish is relatively expensive in Santorini (price per kg).

I just left the restaurant after my third consecutive visit. Every meal was amazingly delicious. The sweet wine was delicious. The seafood was spectacular and fresh. The owner of the restaurant was warm, friendly, and he remembered my girlfriend and I each time we visited the restaurant. The patio has a great view of the beach. This restaurant was truly... More

Recommended by local hotel owner. Fresh squid was best I've tasted in long time. Fresh vegetables also. Bit suspect about risotto - think it came from microwave !! Recommend stick to fresh fish and don't think you'll be disappointed. This is Santorini, so don't expect cheap eating.

It was our first restaurant on the island. It was highly recommended by the hotel owner we stayed. We have ordered fried squibs and they brought us illex (it is like a squib but much cheaper and less tasty). French fries where with huge amount of frying oil and every other dish was medium quality. Location and view was amazing,... More

I'm a back road adventurer always looking for that one place that the locals goto. Galini is just that a place a great restaurant off the main street where only the locals seem to know of its existence. The staff is friendly helpful and will make sure you have good memories of the Greek cuisine. The fish platter foot two... More

The food and drink was very reasonably priced in fact for what... More

I have visited this taverna twice while staying at Anna Traditional Apts. The food here is fabulous, fresh and very reasonably priced. Janis was my waiter both times that I dined here and his service was superb. After both meals he brought me complementary baklava and ouzo. Don't miss out on the fresh seafood. I had the grilled octopus and... More

I visit Galini whenever I am in Santorini, its food is excellent and the price is very reasonable. The location is fabulous and the service always friendly and efficient. Definitely a place not to miss, away from the crowds and tourist traps.

We visited this restaurant because it came so highly recommended on Trip advisor. Our first visit was very disappointing there was a total cock up with the order and they bought for my husband and myself a mixed grill for two with meat and one with fish for two. Underrated to say the least, i could have cooked the meat... More

We stay last year in same month in Galini Restaurant and our idea is always the same! Wonderful fish served with mix of vegetables or fries. The waiters are very kind and the wine very good. Prices are not high. The place of the Taverna on the Beach is Fantastic. We would like to return many times again.
