Small place, not exactly fancy, but neither were the prices. Service was fine. But here's the catch: the food. We ordered a simple lamb kebab dinner expecting the usual cubes with veggies on a skewer style. Instead they had two pieces of flattened lamb. Not only disappointing in appearance and size, but because they were so flat they were dry... More

Simple Greek food, with ouzo and retsina, a nostalgic trip to the past. They have agualimon soup at an unbeatable rice.

We live nearby, so if we're feeling lazy we often drop in for lunch or dinner. The food is consistently good, and we like the service. We know the servers and sometimes they're really busy, so we just go with the flow. Kind of reminds us of Greece. :-) Why 4 rather than 5? We're vegetarians, and there are only... More

I enjoyed a nice early dinner here; service was quick and friendly. After a falafel appetizer, I had a combo dish of gyro wrap, lemon soup, and chips; all was very tasty. Chips were a nice surprise - thin, crispy, seemingly-homemade. As other reviewers mentioned, prices are good which is a plus.

This is my favorite lunch haunt. The food is delicious and fresh, service is excellent, and the price is really reasonable. They are very accommodating because I like my wraps without the wrap.

San Carlos has a farmers market that goes on wed. -Friday downtown. While walking the market we came up on this little place called Santorini's cafe. The food was wonderful. We started with the hummus and homemade pita bread. I had a Greek salad and the gyro kabob. If your in the area check this place out. They also serve... More

went with a friend and enjoyed lamb shish kabob over basmati rice. First trip to Downtown San Carlos and liked it. Lots of businesses and great to walk off that good Greek dinner.

I like the lamb wrap there. Quite tasty and fairly priced. Outdoor seating too. A good place to relax and have a bite. Service is pretty quick.
