“Our Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2009

During a short trip to Santorini, we happened upon the Parea Restaurant in Fira. We were just wandering the meandering byways and happened upon this place. The entrance is up a flight of stairs which has several baskets of bright peppers displayed. You can sit in the upstairs portion for the view or sit inside if it is too windy or cool outside. We had a simple lunch, souvlaki, Greek salad and pita. We were pleasantly surprised by being served fresh-made pita, unlike the bought kind. It was delicious and almost like a flat French bread. Adding much to the meal was a homemade olive oil mayonnaise that we both declared, "Yum." The waiter was friendly without being fawning and, in fact, told us that the ferry from Athens was canceled for the day - the first we had heard of it.

We were able to eat at this restaurant only once but it certainly was our favorite on Santorini. The prices were very reasonable and we ended up paying 23 euros for our meal and our drinks.

It is located near Pelican Travel and not far from the cable cars on one side and the Cafe Classico on the other.

As an added attraction, there are some old photos of Fira on the wall including one of the volcano in action.
