There's a hidden gem in Akrotiri - it's Melina's Tavern. Tastefully decorated with green decor, it's right on the water where the seafood is also caught fresh, you may even see it being caught in front of you! A family run taverna that Nikos Katris started, he named it after his first daughter Melina. His mother is also in the kitchen, so you've struck gold here. After trying the freshly caught octopus, it was like an addiction, I had to keep going back for my fix! You may even see his daughter Melina helping out. She's moved to study in Australia, but born and bred in Santorini, the island remains close to her heart, and often visits during the summer.
You'll love it.
