“Food and service with heart but no polish”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Went yesterday for a Greek Orthodox Good Friday family meal. Very very busy so I am not marking the slow (but consistently polite) service and the fact that parts of our vegetarian menu arrived with long intervals and spanakopita never actually made it to our table. I am marking the food and willingness to please which were much above average for Greek food in London. I evaluate Greek restaurants on the quality of their ingredients: the fresh tomatoes and olives at Santorini were extremely tasty and high quality, none of the cardboard tomato and tin olives you find at other establishments. Portions were huge, and very good value. Gemisti (stuffed) tomato served with strained Greek yoghurt very well executed with the twist of basmati rice a nice alternative to the short-grain normally used in Greece. Yoghurt excellent. Overall a great night!

“Great Greek Food”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

The food was really good. The staff is very welcoming. The taramasalata was gorgeous.
I recommend this place if you want simple and good Greek food.

“Spiros Defteraios”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Visiting 'Santorini' Greek Restaurant was a really great experience! Fantastic 'home-made' Greek food, excellent service with a smile and really good prices! You really need to visit it...it does worth every penny you will pay!

“Refreshing.”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Surrounded by chain pubs offering the same mediocre food, Santorini is just so much better than anything else in the area.

The owner/proprietor has so much pride in his business, and it shows. He made an effort to explain in detail each of the evenings specials, and then explain just how our selected mains are prepared. Something which is a rarity these days.

The food was superb. Better than anything else around. Myself and my partner stayed in the Bayswater area for two weeks, and this was by far the best dining experience we had.

Intimate and dedicated service, wonderful food and an inviting atmosphere for a reasonable price. Why go elsewhere?

“great food”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We had the 2 course meal for 11.50 pound and it was really good. Especially the appetizers were terrific. The main course was also good but had one turn off: instead of tzaziki we got mustard sauce with our souvlaki and keftedes. That was the only negative part of this meal. Everything else was perfect.
