I tried all the top restaurants recommended by Trip Advisor and to be honest, they are all the same. Serving traditional mediocre Greek cuisine. There really is no difference in the core area. How many different ways can you grill lamb, beef, octopus and chicken and make a Greek salad. The only difference is the service and the view.
This is why I loved Ellis restaurant. They are located in the opposite end of Fira in a quiet area with an incredible view. They have a novel approach to the preparation of the food. They pay an incredible amount of attention to the preparation of the food. The food truly tastes home cooked and captures the essence of true Santorini cooking. The Santorini Salad is incredible and they actually use Santorini cherry tomatoes. The bread comes with 3 delicious spreads. The pan fried calamari was superb. They actually slow cook the lamb for 12 hours. The risotto was done to perfection and the gnocchi were fluffy and melted in your mouth. The service was at tentative and informative. Our waitress Georgia was wonderful and made us feel like a family member.
If you want a nice quiet romantic dinner with extreme attention to quality cuisine at a reasonable price check this place out.
