There are many great restaurants in Santorini for every budget. These are our recommendations:
Argo, Fira – this multi-level restaurant in Fira is famous for a reason. We took Greek Plate for two; it was delicious and enough to make not two, but three people full! If you want to get a taste of the local food, this should be your first choice.
Onar, Firostefani – we went to this restaurant just because it was very close to our house in Santorini. Still, it surprised us with delicious food and great views over the caldera. If you search for a romantic atmosphere and tasty moussaka, this is your place to go!
The Athenian House, Imerovigli – Considered one of Santorini’s best restaurants, The Athenian House boasts delicious, authentic Greek food and the most dramatic sunset views over the caldera. A dinner here is more an experience than a meal. Reservations are obligatory, and tasting menus start at 85 EUR (without drinks), so this is not a place to go on a budget.
Karma, Oia – This charming restaurant in Oia is located in the middle of the town. The food is absolutely delicious, and it totally makes up for the lack of sought-after caldera views. Tomato fritters are a must!
Kokkalo, Fira – Located a bit off the beaten path, Kokkalo is a cozy restaurant with delicious food and spectacular views on the eastern part of Santorini.
Tropical Bar, Fira – this cozy bar with friendly staff is a perfect place for watching the sunset with a delicious drink in hand.
PS. There’s also a widely praised restaurant Metaxi Mas in Exo Gonia. We haven’t eaten there, but I thought it needed an honorable mention.
Santorini is a foodies’ paradise!
