This place not only has amazing views (if you get a good table) but the food was great and the staff were very friendly. Totally recommend the Lamb Kleftiko (I think it's called).
A little expensive but can't complain about the food quality. 20€ for the meal and a big glass of their house wine.

Went here for lunch one day and got bread, salad, and an appetizer (calamari). The Salad didn't seem fresh at all which is a huge disappointment compared to other restaurants in the area. The bread was very good however (one of the best yet after 10 days so far in Greece). I thought the calamari was decent but my wife didn't like it so much. The bill came to about 30 euros which is steep for just a quick small lunch. Service was good.

Ate here on our last night in Santorini and the atmosphere was wonderful . Awesome views over the Caldera and lovely sunset as usual in beautiful Santorini. We had the BBQ grilled octopus and I have to say it was the yummiest most tender octopus I have ever eaten. Cooked perfectly and whatever it was marinated in was just delicious. The we shared a cooked grilled snapper which was tasty and fresh along with a side salad. Overall service was good food was great and atmosphere No 1 only the way the Greek Islanders can do it!

The food here was pretty ok to be honest! The staff were pleasant and welcoming even though it was end of season. The real selling pointis the view of the caldera which is breathtaking! Maybes a little pricey for 1 course lunch with soft drinks for 2 ~ €40

We went there during our family trip to Santorini (Oia). We decided to explore Thira (which is know as the "capital" of Santorin.
Looking for refuge at lunch-time, we found Mama Thira Tavern.
It is to us the best Restaurant on the island if you're looking for traditional food and atmosphere. We come from France, and so, we are very sensitive to food, and honestly it was delicious!
Great choice, Gyros is exceptional, great dipping appetizers.
And my god the view!! It's really stunning, one of the best view of the island! Must-see.

My advice : Come a little early, the very kind waiter might open up the balcony, so you can enjoy the sunset.
