“Authentic”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

Eat there twice and good both times. A small range on the menu but well executed and quite traditional. A number of Tavernas on Santorini have tried to go into more esoteric menus to try and justify higher prices. Most fail badly. Atakion sticks to what it does well, serves with a smile and as such deserves to be well supported

“What a great way to start the trip!”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

This is just another post in a long list of praise for the amazing food. I would like to highlight the friendliness of the staff and his great recommendations. We never had enough of the octopus! The eggplant and prawns in spinach is also a must try. All in all, a truly wonderful experience on the lovely island.

“Delicious food”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

Every dish was great: the traditional Fava, the delicious White Eggplant dip, the home made Moussaka... but do not miss the Grilled Shrimps with Spinachs and Ouzo sauce. Just amazing.

“A bit dissapointing”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

We stayed around the corner and the hotel recommended this place, reviews also looked good however a bit dissapointing. The service was friendly and efficient however a few things lacking. It was a very hot day and a mere fan would have made a great difference. All the customers who were not seated on edge felt the heat. The establishment is very aware that it's hot and should make a plan to make its guests comfortable. The drinks were not cold which didn't help and the food was fresh but lacked taste, had moussaka and chicken fillets...it was just average...sorry have to be honest. Maybe I was unlucky.....
