“Good Food Improved By A Great Maitre'D”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

I'm reluctant to call any restaurant or it's food 'the best', including this one. There are too many variables and people's expectations differ. However, the owner of the Triana, who is also Mine Host, has no such qualms and he will cheerfully and repeatedly remind you that he doesn't serve 'frozen' food like 'all the others'. He is an engaging, proficiently multi-lingual gentleman whose humour and style are memorable.

Supposedly on the 'wrong' side of the hill, the outdoor terrace restaurant still offers broad sea views and a family atmosphere.

Mrs Maitre'd does the cooking and the food IS good, among the best authentic Greek food you will find.

“Real authentic greek food!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

Ate here three times in a week. There food is outstanding and best of all, it´s authentic, not to mention their tzatziki. I have been to Greece many times and I have eaten greek food almost in all the places I´ve been to int the world. But this place serves you one of the best greek food I´ve ever tried
Laying in a corner across the mainroad makes it a litlle bit noisy, but after a while you don´t think about it.
Triana is one of the few last standing familyowned tavernas left in Fira. Just that makes it worth trying.
The older man that takes the order speaks really good english and if you aren´t sure what you´re looking at in the meny, he will be happy to explain for you.

“Best Taverna in Fira”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

We stayed in Fira for 3 nights and ate here for two. I don't know the name of the dear old gentleman that owns this restaurant with his wife, but we call him The Twinkly Old Man as he was the loveliest most attentive host you could ask for with a wicked grin and a twinkle in his eye.

The food was some of the best we'd eaten in Greece. Good wholesome home cooked meals that were clearly never microwaved or reaheated in any way and always fresh. When we got the bill we were most surprised to find that it was also the cheapest we'd eaten in Greece! 44 Euros for a two course meal including a litre of wine and beer for three people! If you are staying in Fira, please make sure you visit this taverna and discover this little gem for yourselves - you'll be missing out if you don't!

“A wonderful Greek taverna.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

If you take the time to go a little off the popular streets in Fira, you will find the wonderful taverna Triana. It is located on a busy street with many passing cars. The decor is simple in Greek style. We wanted to try to find a local tavern with good food at good prices. We ate here three times during our stay in Santorini. Their Tzatziki was the tastiest we've ever eaten and all the food we tried tasted wonderful. We can strongly recommend the meze platter for two which only cost 24 euros. Until next time.

“Off the main Fira street(s) - what a treat to find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

A great meal we had here at Triana, Fira. The gentleman was such a nice guy, his recommendations of what to choose from the menu made our meal even more enjoyable (try the 'saganaki' there - fried hard cheese). Sat outside (top part of restaurant) and enjoyed a seaview with our meal. Will return for sure!
