I admit it, we love to eat and what better place to eat at than Santorini.. Every place we ate at in Santorini was good, but the following restaurants are our top five favorites, so far!
Astra Suites Restaurant, Imerovigli
Our favorite place ever for a romantic meal. Astra Suites is not only a fantastic place to stay, but the restaurant also is beyond amazing for so many reasons.
We ate here twice, once in 2018 and once in 2019 and both times it was phenomenal. Not only did we sit in the same spot, but we had the same server as well. He was so attentive and informative providing fantastic service both times! The ambiance here is amazing. The restaurant overlooks the caldera and The Rock of Skaros, which in my opinion, provides the best sunset on the island. The menu has a great variety and the food is terrific. I ordered the chicken while Steve enjoyed the tuna. Astra Suites Restaurant is top choice on my Santorini restaurants list as everything was perfect. I would recommend reservations.
Anogi Restaurant, Imerovigli
Another restaurant we ate at both years is Anogi. Anogi is close to Astra Suites so this worked well for us. This restaurant has a wide variety of Greek dishes to choose from. With generous helpings and great service it is easy to see why this place is so busy. There are both indoor and outdoor seating in a cheery atmosphere. The chicken souvlaki was very tender and tasty. I would recommend reservations if you plan to eat dinner here.
Pirouni Restaurant, Firostefani
We found this gem while walking from Imerovigli to Fira. The friendly host invited us in and we were glad he did. We sat up on the rooftop and enjoyed a great view of the Caldera. We had fantastic Fava, mouthwatering Tomato Fritters, bread and Tzatziki Sauce. The servings were generous and we enjoyed everything. So many of the Santorini restaurants have amazing views and Pirouni’s is not an exception.
Venetsanos Winery, Megolochori
We visited Venetsanos Winery on a Blue Shades of Greece Tour. We had a wine tasting there with amazing small plates. I included this as a great place to eat because the foods paired with the wine were not only delicious but authentic Santorini. We had cheeses, tomato fritters, fava, breads, and many other Santorini favorites. The view again was beautiful. The wines were very good. As a matter of fact, I ordered several bottles when we returned home!
Amalthia Restaurant, Kamari
We kind of stumbled upon this one while driving to the Black Beach. Actually, there are a lot of restaurants in this area and this one caught our eye. The menu was written on black boards as we drove by and we saw they had a gyros plate special and that was exactly what we were hungry for. This place did not disappoint. We also ordered bread and Fava. The Fava was delicious as was the entire meal. We enjoyed chatting with our waiter who gave us good information on the area. We were very happy to find this place!
