We have been on Santorini 5 times and always stayed in Kamari.
Here we have found The Spring at the far end of the waterfront to be a very good place to dine or just get a cup of cappucino.
The restaurant is not large but run by a friendly greek family and the food is good.
Last year we was engaged and asked if they could make a special meal for us.
To our surprice the meal was not only delicious but more than we could eat and to our cappucino, the wife has baked a special, very tasty cake and it came with a drink all free of charge.
The total price was not more than we normal used to pay for a meal.
If you want a peacefull place with good food, try The Spring!
By the way, they make the best cappucino in town.

Very friendly

We have visited this restaurant twice during our stay and have found the food to be fresh and the family owners very friendly. Try any of the fish dishes and you won't be disappointed.

Just returned from a week in Kamari and ate many times at this restaurant after being warmly "accosted" in the street by the gregarious owner Andreas. The welcome was warm, the service was good and the food options extensive to say the least. The quality of the food is very good, we tried a wide range of dishes over the... More

A typically average seafront restaurant. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. I had the moussaka, I did eat it all, but it lacked a little taste. The owner gave us complimentary drinks to finish our meal. Would probably go again and have something different.

Not sure what all the good reviews found that made this stand out.Yes the owner was very friendly....a bit over the top for us. We went as a party of 6 and none of us thought our meal was anything special.Nothing bad to say about it other than with all the places to choose from this was not the best

The owner is a very nice friendly and helpful guy. He is always to be seen at the front of the restaurant and talks to everybody. We have used this taverna in previous years and it was just as good this time. I chose the chicken a la creme and my sister had the ham and bacon omelette. The service... More

We went here for lunch as part of the 'free sunbeds' deal and it was very good. I had the Swordfish and my wife had the sardines. Both were very good.

Nothing bad to say at all but also nothing good, just average and didn't really stand out in any way. The owner was keen to impress but maybe tried a bit to hard. We wouldn't go back, not because we had a bad experience but because there is much better options very close by.

Great place for day at the beach, sunbeds and Wifi free if you have lunch later in the day. Lunch menu good and reasonably priced. Once shown to a sunbed you are left unbothered, allowing for relaxation. Sunbeds comfortable, would recommend.
