The first impression is good: an illuminated path leading to the tables, soft music making the atmosphere special. Once seated we were bombarded by questions from the waitress, who was probably trying to be nice but did not realised that was too much to ask. When we were offered water I remembered what I read: I had to ask for... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Yalos! Excellent seafood, chicken and salads. The bread and dips were amazing and the kids enjoyed playing on the beach while we kicked back with a glass, or two, of wine. The staff was very welcoming- especially Anastasia. One memorable unexpected part of our meal was the two swans that traveled along the shoreline!... More

My friends and I decided to just "drive around" Santorini on our last day and ended up at Yalo's! At first we just saw a beach, and then sat on the bean bags, and then ended up drinking on the beach and eating at the restaurant!! The Yalo's Salad was amazing as well as the spicy cheese dip!

Located in Thiras Harbour, this beautiful beach restaurant is worth the effort and time of going there. The owner has taken great care in creating a menu that leverages local specialties with a unique and interesting twist. The open atmosphere creates an immediate feeling of relaxation, beautifully complimented by tasteful décor (in complete harmony with the surrounding beach and water)... More

Very nice beach with lounges provided for patrons. The restaurant is dug back into the hill - visit the washrooms for a very different experience - but when the weather is good, the outside tables make for the best location. My feta and spinach stuffed squid was exquisite - best squid I have ever tasted.

My fiancée and I stayed in Santorini for a week from the 22nd of September 2016. We were on a 'room only' type of accommodation which meant we needed to find somewhere to eat everyday which had its pros and cons. Only real con was that it was an expensive way of doing it but as long as you put... More
