Ten of us had our first Greek meal here. Quite a large restaurant as there is a downstairs & upstairs. No problem catering for large groups. Very good service. The prices are reasonable for Santorini. The food is what you would expect from a restaurant like this...nothing exceptional but not bad. Worth a visit.

We were 3 days in Santorini and luckily for us were recommended to have dinner at Simos. From the moment we walked in it felt 'home from home'. Authentic and warm welcome from Simos the owner and great staff member with charm, Levan who served us. The food was served in abundant portions and was fresh and flavoursome. Price was... More

This is a very nice and traditional Greek restaurant with friendly and polite staff. I especially recommend the stuffed and fried zucchini flowers as a starter. As a mains I would go with one of the house specialties as the menu is very extensive. I tried the stifado the first time we went there and it was delicious.

We were there twice in 3 nights' stay in Santorini where our hotel was in Firostefani. Not to say this is very traditional Greece restaurant, the food is the best we have tried in Greece. In two nights with my wife and daughter, we tried shrimp, lamb dish, a plate of little fishes ans on on and each one is... More

My cousin and I stumbled in here after a long day of hiking - we're so glad we did! Everything was at least 2-3 euros cheaper and was only a minimal walk up from the main center of Fira. The portions were perfect and the food was delicious - my cousin and I got grilled squid and moussaka respectively and... More

Nice taverna on a steep slope in Fira closer to Firostefani than Fira but nevertheless affords good views from the rooftop dining area. We had lamb chops and they were excellent. Serviced with the usual Greek fries and lemon wedges, they were tender and succulent.

This was by far the best restaurant I went to during my trip to Greece, spanning 9 days shared between Athens, Santorini and Crete. The food was beautifully seasoned, and packed full of flavour. The prices are very competitive, expect to pay around €12-13 for a main course and drink. The service was great, and we chatted to the staff... More

I really could not recommend this place enough! The food is delicious, cheap, and the service was incredible! We went in for a big lunch before we headed on the Fira to oia hike and I ordered the homemade burger with stuffed cheese expecting something quite simple.. But the dish was amazing and exceeded every expectation.. The meat was so... More
