Best Santorini restaurants to enjoy authentic Greek/Santorini food

            Food is a big part of any culture and Greece and Santorini in particular are no exception. Let me give you some quick tips on where to find the best restaurants that still serve mainly authentic, traditional Greek food typical of the Santorini region. Off course, all places serve something from the Greek cuisine, but these places specialize in these dishes. These are my three recommendations in no particular order:

Argo in Fira

Argo is located in the capital of Santorini — Fira — and it has been winning all sorts of awards for its splendid menu and picturesque location where you can dine and watch the sun set over the caldera. As a modern restaurant should, they can offer you meals from around the world, but they’re really well known for their local dishes – fava and patatina.

Aktaion Taverna

This traditional Greek tavern was opened in Firostefani more than 90 years ago and is still run by the same family. The third generation of the family has taken over and they still hold the traditional Greek tavern values dear. Their menu is as local as it gets – they only use ingredients grown on the island, and they make simple, yet very tasty dishes from them.

1800

This restaurant in Oia operates in an authentic captain’s house from 1845. You can really escape the modern era there, as the majority of the interior details have been preserved. What’s more is that the menu offers great Greek and Mediterranean seafood!

So these restaurants might serve as a starting point. You would be surprised how many dining options are there on the island. Prepare your taste buds! :)
