Is should start by saying we visited at the end of the season so there were not many people dining in the restaurant. However the staff were very friendly, the menu was extensive and the quality of the food and service (albeit late in the season) first class. Pricing was comparable to other restaurants we visited although in my opinion... More

We ate here once - never again! We waited 2 hours before our food arrived, the food was awful, and they tried to bill us for food we had not had. There was not even an apology for keeping us waiting for so long - how rude! Shan't go back there again.

I have been travelling to Santorini for almost 10 years now and the overall level of food and service I have received is amongst the best in the world. The menu here at the Amalthia is very extensive from traditional local dishes to a great selection of meals from the grill and sea food section. The atmosphere is always welcoming... More

We ate here once on our recent holiday in Kamari and the setting was very pretty. The service was very slow but I had the best lamb kleftico that I have ever eaten. My husband had swordfish which he said was moist and very enjoyable. We only visited once because there are so many good restaurants in Kamari and not... More

We decided to visit this restaurant on the last night of our holiday. There was over 30 in our party, and seating was not an issue. There seemed to be mass confusion as to who was ordering what as the waitress seemed to struggle with so many people. Food was bought out onto the table as appetisers and charged to... More

We had decided to catch the bus from Fira, where we were staying, to view Kamari and to eat there. We had read a good review of the Amalthia with particularly good remarks about its setting in a garden and terrace. Our hotel manager told us she had heard that the Amalthia was not very good but we ventured on!... More

With a couple of friends I visited this restaurant twice during our holiday. the first visit was absolutely fine so we went again a couple of days later. This is when it went wrong for us. We took what seemed the last table in the place and whilst our order was taken quite swiftly we then waited close to an... More

We had our wedding reception here & they could not do enough for us. The food that was chosen by our guests was fantastic. Giannis the owner met with us & was very helpful. All our guests had a wonderful evening, & we ate there twice afterwards. Will be returning next year to this gem of a place.

We went here after passing daily on our way to the beach. Admittedly, it was early in the evening when we ate, so there wasn't really as much atmosphere as there may be later on, but the food we had wasn't the best in Kamari. I don't think we'd eat here again
