Try the lemon and oregano lamb, delicious. The service is a little bit harsh and it seems they not accept people ordering just salad (it happened at the table near us, customer left). It's crowded, it's good, it's cheap, compared to other restaurants.

Tuck in one of the street of Fira and is always full. They serve the food very fast, comparable with McDonald but the quality of food is top notch and very authentic Greek stuff. Must try no matter how full or how busy you are.

We came across this restaurant after wandering around the streets. Its away from the caldera so prices are cheaper. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly, not pushy. Highly recommended

Another place away from the main drag - and the food is excellent, a proper traditional place serving good quality Greek food, go early or you will be waiting in the street with a glass of wine of course!!
