A review of the salads at Tranquilo will hardly do them justice. They are simply that awesome. Try to imagine the biggest, freshest salad possible (with no iceberg lettuce or 'fillers' to take away from toppings) and you will be on the right track. For 6-8 euros, one salad will fill two people. Tranquilo is just that, located right on Perissa beach in Santorini. Open air, festive colors and music, hammocks, nookish lounge seating with cushions, a lively bar, a mix of locals and european tourists, and great beer prices (Mythos 500ml for 3.5 euros is a great start). All buses in Santorini run from Fira to another city on the island, and the trip to Perissa is about 15-20 minutes. If you get off at the main Perissa Beach stop, walk right along the beach for about 10 minutes to get to Tranquilo. If you get off at the Perivolos Beach stop, walk left along the beach for 3-4 minutes. This is the type of island restaurant with a view, service, great food, and great vibe that makes your trip entirely worthwhile.
As a note, if you don't want the structure of depending on buses that fill up quickly and may or may not be on time, rent an ATV or scooter to truly enjoy Santorini. You can get anywhere on the island in 20-25 minutes, and scooters and ATVs are allowed on ALL roads. Plus, parking an ATV is far, far simpler than trying to find parking for your car in Santorini.
