We stayed in Firostefani for about a week and kept passing this restaurant. We decided to save and to go to Simos on a special day. Welp, it was meh. Nothing really to recommend. I mean, it was OH-KAY. I have to say that we are in Santorini in the off-season and they had a paired down menu. That said,... More

Service was excellent, friendly staff. The special menu which was the chicken baked in oven was delicious. The fish soup as well was refreshing.

Average food at an average price. House wine was dreadful and the food was bland and stodgy but generous portions.

Average food, good service good price. We shared the mixed grill but it was only served with potatoe chips which were lovely. No grilled veggies only the briam. The wine was nice. A little noisy as right on a Main Street.

Taverna Simos is a must! We have been going to Simos for 18 years and it never disappoints. Simos and Martin and their staff make you feel like part of the family. The food is well prepared and reasonably priced for Santorini. The salads and other mezzes are wonderful, don't fill up on those because the lamb in the oven... More
