The owners of a very nice, cosy, clean, friendly and with caldera view accommodation in Imerovigly, Santorini the “Irida Hotel", advised us to go to “Rare”. And they were CORRECT! “Rare" is a family owned restaurant and, at the same time, true professionals.  They really respect their customer. Very nice cuts of beef, all the dishes (and not only the meat) were tasteful, clean (you can see the kitchen), reasonable prices, “value for money”. You may not see the “caldera view” from the restaurant, but you HAVE to visit! We will for sure come back!

Early service as we had not eaten since breakfast. My wife’s pork cutlets were really tasty, my steak was good, but not €30 good! The fries were way too salty. Got for the cutlets, great value and taste. Two meals, two local beers €50 plus tip. Nice service from the friendly waiter

Wandered past, looked good, dropped in. It was a great decision. Food was delicious, bottle of local wine very nice and the service was as good as you will find anywhere. Bit more detail: - beef tetaki to start was as good as I’ve had anywhere, inc. Asia. - lamb fricase delicious and chicken souvlaki superb. We had 2 starters, bread, 2 mains, 2 large bottles of water and a bottle of wine, total €107. Would highly recommend and we will return for sure.

Service was abysmal. Food was great though. There are so many other great restaurants in Imerovigli such as Aegean Restaurant, Avocado, Blue Note, even the bar Bar To Navagio (we met the bartender George there, he was awesome). DO NOT EAT HERE! We've been in Europe for over 2 weeks and have not had such terrible treatment this whole time. It started with when we entered and asked for a table. We were told we only had 1 hour to eat because there was a reservation after us (even though there were plenty of empty tables). After we agreed and sat down, several other groups were sat (larger than our 2 person group) without reservations and nothing was said about a time limit to them. They seemed very annoyed that we were there the entire time, servers did not talk to us at all except for taking our order (after we flagged them down). I know it's normal to let people take their time in Europe and we have to frequently flag down the server for the check, we are used to this. It was clear that there was some racial issue here with us being South Asian. To top it off, the check was brought to us without us asking for it and the server did not bother to ask if we wanted dessert. Every restaurant we've been to in Europe has let us take our time, order multiple drinks, we have even ordered multiple desserts successively (we ordered one dessert and liked it so much that we ordered another after finishing the first one, that restaurant seemed happy about it). So they were forcing us out before our 1 hour was up. I placed my card on top of the check (I'm a woman) and the server brought the card machine, took my card (which was next to my side of the table) and gave the machine to my husband to sign/tip. I have absolutely no problem with my husband signing for me (in fact I make him do it for me frequently), but the fact that the server discounted me as a woman when the card was clearly right next to me?! I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone of South Asian descent. They seemed to treat the other Americans and Europeans fine... They were friendly and even chatting with them! They did not force any other table out except for us... Never going back and do not recommend.

Everything was okay. The food was fine - you don’t expect turmeric yellow chicken when ordering souvlaki but it was tasty enough. The service was fine too - I don’t love being able to see my server’s eyes roll over in his head when I talk but I’ve travelled enough to be used to it and he was attentive if not friendly. But on a island with so much amazing, okay was disappointing.

We visited for dinner. It was early evening so very quiet with plenty of tables. As others have said, this restaurant is on the square so no stunning views from the table but those views are only about 30 seconds’ walk away after you’ve eaten! As with a lot of restaurants in the area there isn’t a specific menu for smaller children so they’ll generally get an adult-sized portion. The food we had was all very good and the house wine is definitely worth the money. Meat is very much the speciality with plenty to choose from.

We tried five different restaurants during our time in Imerovigli and this was our best meal. It may not have sunset/caldera views but if you are not fussed about this then would fully recommend this place. We had 2 starters and 2 Mains and all were incredible. The sauteed Mushrooms were so flavorful and the Fava and Pork Belly was a tasty way to try the local Fava dish. I had the Peppercorn steak medium rare which was cooked just the way I wanted it and the Beef Ragu with Baked Eggplant is a great alternative if you don't fancy steak. The prices are reasonable and atmosphere is good, making this a great find and you can also reserve online

My wife and I truly enjoyed our time eating here. The food was delicious! Also brought out very quickly. The waiter was so friendly with jokes and a funny story the whole time. The steak I ordered was cooked to perfection and my wife’s risotto was delicious.

My family and I have spent several days in Santorini and have been all over the island and we like this restaurant the best. We ordered the Santorini Salad and Beef Souvlak. Their produce is fresh and flavorful, their meat is tender and juicy, and the restaurant has an excellent atmosphere. Highly recommend Rare Meat Restaurant.

We stayed in Imerovigli because we wanted a more relaxed experience then Fira, but we also were hoping to find some good restaurants close to our hotel. Rare absolutely delivered! The food was original and delicious, and there were even items that appealed to the vegetarian in our group. The owners were adorable and so attentive to all of the customers, ensuring that everyone had a wonderful experience. I highly recommend joining them for dinner!

We booked this restaurant for two couples during our stay in Santorini. We travelled here from Kamari after seeing the reviews online. The food was 10/10 - no faults at all. It was so good that we didn’t even take pictures and our plates were licked clean. However the service wasn’t so great. Unfortunately once seated, we had to ask if they would take our drink order. Our 2 guests arrived later than us and their drink order was never taken. We had to continue to prompt the staff / get their attention to take our orders. Once finished with the food, our plates were taken away but we weren’t asked if we would like dessert etc. We waited around 30 mins before asking for our bill and we left. I have seen other reviews that seem to comment on the service being good so this may have been a one off. It’s also worth noting that our guests were around 15 minutes late so this could have irritated the staff and lead to their lack of service.

Absolutely fabulous. It’s not in the main stretch of restaurants in the sea front area. It’s just off the Main Street opposite a supermarket but the lack of view is made up for by the food and service. The food is amazing and the waiter is so helpful and lovely. Absolutely fantastic.

This was the absolute best dinner of our trip to the Santorini and Greek Islands. From appetizers to desserts this restaurant is amazing the owner is hands on and has the best food in Santorini, the prime steaks cooked perfectly to order were to die for. Too bad I’m leaving tomorrow otherwise I’d be back. Highly recommend eating here while the views aren’t as intense as the Caldera the quality of the food and service outweigh any view.

We had the Tzataiki, Sautéed Mushrooms with a bottle of Mygri Pygri Cab Sauv. Everything that arrived before the steak was divine! My wife had the Vinsanto Filet and I had the Peppercorn steak; both were medium rare and to side for. As a former resident of SoCal and a steak house fan, this was easily in my top 3 steaks of all time. Wiped my plate dry. If this review doesn’t convince you, then go somewhere else. Cuz you ain’t ready for this mouth event..!

Made a last-minute decision to go to this place. It was really good. Many people were ordering the Pork Gyro Plate, so I jumped on the bandwagon the did the same. It was really tender meat, and their tzatziki dressing is excellent. If you are not set on having dinner with a view of the caldera, this place is great. Considering the typical price point on Santorini, I think you get a big bang for your buck eating here.
