We went here for lunch and was very surprised by the food. We had lamb and potatoes and some local wine. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The place it's self was very interesting and well designed. Lots of outside seating or lots of seating inside. There are not a lot of places on the island to eat, at least with this good of food.
If you are there, just stop in for a drink and check out the menu.
You will enjoy yourself.

This is a typical village taverna where the food is simple, wholesome and inexpensive. It was also one of the few restaurants on Santorini which gave us a complementary pudding, a custom we have become used to in many parts of both Greece and Turkey.

My wife and I went there this evening. We were not disappointed the food was delicious. Only thing was we had eaten way to much during the day and didn't manage to eat much of our main dishes. Waiter seemed like he was hurt by that.It was no reflection on the food at all it was served hot,fresh and the presentation was good.I had the garlic fried mushrooms that were yummy and my wife had a pork dish in this sauce that was to die for,it was just spicy enough thT it woke up your taste buds.For our mains I had the pork Pyrgos with bacon and sundries tomatoes it also was excellent,but like I said unable to eat that much because of the day we had,to much food,but if you go there don' t hesitate to order it.

We got married at Pyrgos on 7th September 2013. We had the ceremony and reception there and it was perfect!!

We used Nina at Pro Support (info@pro-support.gr) as our Wedding Planner who liaised with Artemis, who is the Owner of Pyrgos Taverna. We arranged almost everything in advance via email and then had a final meeting with Artemis once we arrived in Santorini. This allowed us to talk through the order of events, meet the staff who would look after us on the day and even sample of the food to make sure we were completely happy.

Artemis is a very lovely man and made an exceptional effort to make us feel welcome. He could not do enough for us and constantly repeated to us that "anything we need, just ask". The way he conducted the event and his staff made us feel like royalty. Gabriel was our Head Waiter and he was also fantastic, very professional and a great laugh too!

Room - We chose Aghia (St) Fotini Hall for our reception. This is on the lower level and allowed us to have our own private terrace for the ceremony, we then opened up the bi-fold glass doors to extend the bar to the outside area (wind permitting!) for the champagne reception. We also arranged for outdoor speakers for ceremony and backing music before coming indoors for the meal. We then used the built in sound system to play music through our iPod. (We don't like cheesy DJ's!). The room was large enough to easily accommodate our 40 guests, plus the Greek band and dancers - and even room for dancing! Artemis gave us the choice of rooms when we arrived, which ensured we were totally happy with our decision.

Food - We chose Menu 2 which was a mixed greek starter, a choice of Kleftiko, Special Pork, Swordfish or Chicken for main and Wedding Cake and grapes for dessert. It was all beautiful and we had some very good compliments from our guests to back it up.

Drinks - We chose the sparkling wine and Strawberry reception after the ceremony, which was also gorgeous. The wine was particularly nice - better than some of the champagne we had in Santorini. We also bought champagne for the toasts and a drinks package, to provide wine for the tables during the meal. Artemis is very flexible on your requirements and can make changes right up to the wedding, if you desire.

Views and Photography - We had all of our photo's taken at the Taverna which provided views our across the island and the sea. The photo's look stunning and were exactly what we needed. If you want views of just the sea and sky, then go to Imerovigli or Oia. If you would like to capture the island and buildings too, then this is the place to be.

Overall, the setting, the food, the mood and the staff made this a perfect wedding venue!!

ONE OF THE BEST TAVERNA we have visited IN SANTORINI. Service is great, food as well, the view from the Taverna is marvelous, the garden spectacular, not expensive.
