Places To Eat In Santorini

Here is a list of my favorite restaurants in Santorini. 

Traditional Restaurants

If you want to try the local specialties, go to one of the following places:

The Good Heart, in Akrotiri 

I have mentioned this restaurant before. You can read all about it here. To me, it is really the closest thing to my mom's cooking. Original and good quality food. Great people. It is worth the drive to Akrotiri. You can also enjoy the sunset from there. 

Metaxy Mas, in Exo Gonia

Great traditional food in a lovely terrace. Metaxy mas is usually fully booked in the summer, so make sure to call in advance and make a reservation. Also make sure to get some "raki" to drink. 

Kapari, in Fira

Small cute place in the heart of Fira. Not very popular for tourists, but loved by local people. You will love it too. 

Fish Restaurants

Looking for fresh fish? Try one of these restaurants. 

To Psaraki, in Vlychada

Fish Tavern overlooking the port of Vlychada. You will enjoy fresh fish and seafood, along with the nice views. 

Ammoudi Fish Tavern, in Ammoudi

Great restaurant right on the water. Amazing fish. Amazing location. You will need to book here as well. If you are going to Oia for the sunset, you can combine it with dinner here. 

Mario, in Monolithos (close to the Airport)

I recently discovered this restaurant, after hearing a lot of nice things about it. It is right on the beach, on a more quiet side of the island. I had a lovely risotto with shrimps the first time I went and have been eating the same dish ever since. Sooo tasty.

Aroma Avlis, in Kamari 

Traditional cuisine, with a great menu and an excellent wine list. The restaurant has great views to the sea and the vineyards. Away from all the crowds. 

Pelican Kipos, in Fira

In the heart of Fira, this is one of my favorite places. Like an oasis, this garden will take your thirst and hunger away. The beer list is unreal and so is the wine list (there is also a wine cellar you can visit). 

Forty One 41, in Perivolos

If you are looking for a relaxing lunch/dinner on the beach, this is just the place. I am also a big fan of their cocktails. 

Seaside, in Perivolos

Without doubt, one of the best restaurants on Santorini. Relaxing, cool atmosphere and tasty food. 


Erotokritos, just outside Fira

I don't need to say a lot, just go and see for yourself. Or should I say taste for yourself?

Svoronos, in Fira

After a night out, please do not go to McDonald's. Why go? There is an amazing bakery right next door. Open 24/7 and has all of the tasty Greek pastries. And more.
