We had an incredible vacation in Santorini. Can't stop thinking about the Dakos salad (photo attached) we had in September 2013 and it's now April 2014. We stopped in on our walk back from the end of the cliff (Imerovigli) back to Fira for some refreshment. Great view, cloth covered drapes made for great shade while enjoying the gorgeous view....

I loved Santorini and this place made it so much more enjoyable. Food was amazing, especially the stuffed vine leaves, stuffed peppers, actually anything that was stuffed was great. The owners are friendly and really inviting!

Stopped at the Lava Cafe because we needed to connect with family at home. Tito was so gracious. Used his internet while we sipped Greek wine & beer. Didn't eat here, but food looked really good. Fun place that's not overpriced & touristy. Easy to find on a side street.

Lava Cafe is a great place to meet friends and socialize in Santorini. The food is amazing and the staff are very friendly, personable and ensure you have a great dining experience. I highly recommend this place for lunch and dinner, social drinks or celebrations! Feels like a home away from home.

This is the best bar in santorini. The atmosphere is amazingly chilled out. The oweners make you feel so welcome and the food is fantastic. It changes every night and tastes amazing The bar is low key and you will find locals and holiday makers smiling and laughing constantly. Tito and Thalia could not do enough for us. We will... More
