Came here 2 years ago and decided to give it another go. My 5 year old son is a fussy eater and they went out of their way to give him something he liked and they gave us chocolate icecream on the house. They also do a lovely breakfast and a lovely cup of tea.

With so many places to choose from to eat or drink it can be difficult in Kamari to make your mind up, we just stopped for a drink here, but had a snack as well, only meatballs but they weren't great, a bit overlooked and dry, and nothing to go with them, salad or dips, and the coffee I had...

The food has really no taste and it's just a trap for tourists who use the sunbeds there. There are far better restaurants in Santorini than this one.

Fair price Good service The food was well cooked and not super salty like everywhere else. Portion size was good and of all the restaurants we ate at they had actual sides: fries rice and coleslaw. I'm happy we ate here, we wouldn't have if the waiter hadn't grabbed us from the street with his charm. Good friendly guy.

We went here a few times during the day. Free sunbeds on the beach and inexpensive food for lunch. The place is run by a very friendly fella called Andreas and all the food is home made by his wife.

We sat down on the sun beds and had been laying there for 20 mins before the waiter approaches and asks us if we know the rules?! Erm no....... He then said we can only sit there if we are customers, so I said okay great. He then left us for 10 mins then approached again. We'd like to order... More

We were coaxed into stopping at their place (one of many along the beach w/ umbrellas and sun beds. When we stopped at their location, I asked how much for a bed, and he said he would give it to us for free if we ordered something sometime while we were there. So we sat and stayed for a couple...

Description
We have been on Santorini 5 times and always stayed in Kamari.
Here we have found The Spring at the far end of the waterfront to be a very good place to dine or just get a cup of cappucino.
The restaurant is not large but run by a friendly greek family and the food is good.
Last year we was engaged and asked if they could make a special meal for us.
To our surprice the meal was not only delicious but more than we could eat and to our cappucino, the wife has baked a special, very tasty cake and it came with a drink all free of charge.
The total price was not more than we normal used to pay for a meal.
If you want a peacefull place with good food, try The Spring!
By the way, they make the best cappucino in town.
