This was one of the top restaurants recommended by the Reverie where we were staying and they were right! It was excellent! All of the dishes we tried were simply the best but the pasta stole the show. Because it has limited seating it is best to eat early or make a reservation. If good food and wine is your objective for dinner then Aktaion needs to be experienced. And, not overly expensive either!

Charming. Always full, you need a reservation. End of season the staff was a bit annoyed. Food is OK, not more than that. Do not look for patates diganites (french fries).

I strongly believe that this restaurant is UNMATCHED in quality and service. The BEST place to have dinner in Santorini. the variety and presentation of everything that is on the menu goes far beyond imagination.

Visited this restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel owner. We were fortunate to secure a same night reservation for 7:00 pm but saw many turned away. We enjoyed the fried cheese balls as an appetizer (and wanted to order more for dessert but resisted), and entrees of lamb shank and braised veal with smoked eggplant. Both dishes were rich in flavour. The lamb was served with an orzo pilaf, finished with a grating of mizithra cheese. The veal was braised in a rich tomato sauce with cinnamon seasoning. We enjoyed both.

We ate here two nights in a row. The food was delicious and the service outstanding. They have a varied menu, you should be able to find anything you want. The staff is great about guiding you on selections, and they are so friendly and welcoming. I would definitely go back again.
