“A fine dinner experience in a romantic location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

We visited Aegialos under a friend's suggestion, the place was a Little Bit hard to find, you have to follow the signs with the name of the restaurant carefully, but once there you will see it was Worth it! Elegant but cosy, on the sea shore, small (remember to book!) and with a candle-lit atmosphere.. We were a group of 3 friends and they gave us the boat table.. Amazing! The owner Antonis was very nice and helpful, not only in choosing the dishes and suggesting the freshest food, but also in giving us advice on where to go for bars or clubs.. We ordered the typical fava of Santorini, and they also brought us a tomato puree, the ingredients coming from the owner's orchard. We were shown all the fish that was fished on that day, and we chose a 1-kg-greek species, which they also cleaned and de-boned for us. The price was fair for the quality and in the end they offered us the typical vinsanto, the sweet wine from Santorini. An experience to repeat!

“Cozy restaurant on the beach with good food & great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

We got the boat sofa which is the the nicest table in the restaurant. After dinner whick was good we settled into the sofa boat with our drinks, some soft lounge Music and enjoyed the sunset and the beginnig of the night with lots of Candles. They made the visit very cozy and rememberable and we can highly recommend Aegialos.

“Beautiful, traditional Greek food on the waters edge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

This was my 3rd visit to Aegialos, we went once last year then twice this year. Each time we have eaten on the wooden boat "table" . The beach here is quiet and parking is easy. the food is simple and delcious, with the chef using only top quality ingredients. The Octopus is excellent, the fish dishes superb. Service is efficient and friendly, even in the middle of peak season! The kids love coming here, enjoying a long swim before and after lunch. one of my fav's on the island

“Not bad but hugely overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

Following the enthusiastic reviews we went to Aegialos for dinner, and it was a mistake, since they obviously come from people with little or no experience in Greek cooking. Food was the "good for tourists" stuff you get in every tourist restaurant in Greece, bland and tasteless, service was good, prices OK.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

The management was very knowledgeable and helpful in making recommendations for things to try. Everything we tried was delicious, especially the fava, the anchovies, the sardines, the zucchini puffs, and the mussels, plus all the desserts were great. Its small, so be sure to make a reservation.
