Authentic Greek Isle food completely off the grid away from the heavily trafficked tourist areas of Santorini. This place was an absolute gem. The service was friendly and welcoming. The menu selections were terrific. We wanted to try everything. Our hotel staff recommended this place and they were absolutely correct. We had a fabulous lunch and this was probably the... More

Metax mas tavern was one of the best experiences for us. Everything we ate and drink was perfect. Although we could not sit outside(we dont regret) we ve really enjoyed traditional indoor decoration. Absolutely recommended.

We ate here three nights out of the five we were on the island. Every dish we tried was delicious. Best to book - lots of locals eat here.

The restaurant offers traditional Greek food in a traditional place. They provided shooters at the beginning of dinner and gave us free dessert cooked with same type of shooters at the end of dinner, which were perfect start and end. However, we did not expect the portion for each dish was such large. It was the best food during our... More

The Taverna was at a very nice place in Santorini. It was fully planted and also have a very nice view. The dishes were tasty with a traditional way of cooking. The prices were logical for Santorini.

The staff is friendly and helping, the interior is quite sound. However, we did not consider the food be very tasty. Especially the seafood seemed to be deepfried and was without recognizable taste. Therefor, we could not understand the mostly positive ratings, which led us to go there.

The atmosphere of this place is truly wonderful. The scenery is great. You are actually sitting in the school yard, as we heard. The staff was a bit slow, but really friendly.

Beam me up, send me back now! Wonderful food in an equally wonderful setting. From start to finish, my most memorable meal during an idyllic week on Santorini. Clearly this is no mystery as the restaurant veranda was bustling during my shoulder season visit in September. Make reservations and plan to linger with friends and family enjoying your meal.
