Tasty food, traditional but with a bit of a twist. The herb crusted chicken was yumm. We left full and happy. The service was a bit slow but they were packed so understandable.

Had some of the best food here, during a tour of the islands-- the cheese sampler was excellent as were the eggplant rolls on the appetizers menu (with a divine tomato sauce). They roast their lamb and vegetables entree in parchment paper and the lamb is succulent-- as is the shrimp and orzo entree. The hotel concierge told us this... More

Been here in October 2015 to be exact. There's no option to backdate till then hence. Best Greek food I've had in Santorini esp the lamb dish was out of this world! Go try it!

Great dinner in a traditional place at Firostefani with a view and fantastic service. Go for the lamb Kleftogiannis or squid and local red wine. Tum!

What a treat this little family taverna is and how I wish that we had discovered it earlier, because we would have gone back for more. Sadly it was our last meal before leaving for the airport. We chose a delicious pie ( similar to quiche) made from courgettes etc. to bolster up cod that I ordered. The two pieces... More

We had a very enjoyable meal at this restaurant. The Greek salad was the best we'd had in our ten days in Greece and the other courses were also excellent. It's quite a small, fairly cramped venue, but the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Small place with a wonderful sunset view of the caldera in Santorini. Very friendly staff and fast service. The fried squid and baked lamb are wonderful. Give it a try!

If you are around Firostefani, you gotta try this place for super awesome and perfectly done food. And better to reserve in advance as the place is not so big and people who want to eat here are way too many :) Try to reserve outside on one of tables next to walk way to get perfect sunset view.
