“We saved the best for last!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We capped off our 4 day visit to the island having an amazing dinner at Mezzo. We selected our catch from the platter and the whole fish was cooked to perfection. It was a memorable experience due to the ambiance, service and excellent meal and wine pairing.

“Excellent food and staff with a million dollar view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We were staying next door, so had seen Mezzo all week, and decided to make it our fairwell dinner to Santorini, and we weren't disappointed. Highly recommend a reservation for a sunset dinner. From the minute coming in we were treated to a great experience. Every course was excellent and will be back next time to Santorini.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We went to Mezzo as a couple just last week during a 7 day stay in Santorini. Actually, we went twice because it was so good.

Having been to pretty much all of the top rated restaurants in Imerovigli and Fira I can safely safe this is the best.

Nice setting, lovely food and great hosts who will help and recommend specials or just nice things to try.

The price is also very reasonable. Santorini isn't the cheapest but we had a lovely 3 course meal with house wine and on both occasions it was just over 70 euros. Most nights we were looking at around 100 euros for similar meals at other top rated restaurants. Mainly due to the wine being excessively priced elsewhere as well. You also get complimentary shots of Greek liquors, which is a nice touch.

Well worth going if you are looking for great food in a nice environment.

“Stunning views, food and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We had lunch here 3 times during our 8 day stay in Santorini, it was a stone's throw from our hotel and 1/2 the price. The view from the terrace is of the beautiful Caldera. There is something for everyone on the menu. Mario was a wonderful host and so friendly. If you fancy fish, ask to see the catch of the day and they will bring out a selection of whoel fish for you to choose. I am a meat eater and went for the chicken in a roasting jacket - which is basically a chicken kebab but the meat was so tender, marinated in delicious herbs and spices. Yum. Catch of the day is not cheap anywhere in satorini so make sure you are happy with the price per kilo before you order as it can be 50 - 70 euros a kilo across the island. We loved Mezzo - you definitely need to book a table in the evening. The house wine is also very drinkable and much cheaper than bottles.

“Great Food, Great View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Visited Imerovigli as a day trip from Oia. Stumbled across Mezzo Restaurant looking for a drink and stayed for food mid afternoon as they had a high chair for our 6 month old son.

They were very hospitable and friendly, food excellent and the view over the Caldera superb.
