The baby squid I had was very fresh. By Santorini standard I would give the menu more of a 3.8 because a little lack of imagination. The restaurant was charming and service warmly attentive. Their appetizer menu is extensive. Only wish I had the stomach size to try them all.

This place may not look like much but it's a gem. They have rooftop seating which doesn't offer much of a view but is still cool. They have tons of great apps/small plates. We tried the snails, fava beans and the vine leaves (grape leaves) All were great. We also had the lamb in the oven and an eggplant substitute... More

Great meal, great service, with a great East facing view of Santorini. We enjoyed the stuffed peppers, lamb in oven, mousaka and the classic Greek salad.

Best dinner we had in Santorini. Best fried calamari in Santorini. Nice and friendly staff. We arrived there late and they were closing, but still they made food for us to take away! Highly recommended.

This restaurant was about a minute away from our hotel so we decided to try it. Glad we did, because they have good food, plus you don't have to deal with the crowd from the city center.

This place is a bit away from all the touristy spots in Fira . If you are staying in Firaestefani it's a perfect spot to grab a quick bit to eat.

We were recommended by the owner of hotel thira and we were delighted with the service and the food. Absolutely delicious waiters were explained with superb English and so friendly. Its slightly off the beaten track but good prices on everything and worth it.

We stayed four days with my family and we visited Simos tavern two times. We wish we had more days to taste all the menu! Amazing food, the quality of the meat, vegetables and desserts was excellent.
