If indeed the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach, then Santorini is the place to fall in love. Apart from beautiful caldera views and colourful sunsets, there is one thing that really amazed me, and that is the food! So, if you are wondering where to eat in Santorini, don’t worry! There are plenty of restaurants that can please even the most demanding taste buds.

One of the cutest places to enjoy a typical Greek lunch or dinner and taste some of Santorini’s local delicacies is 'Kantouni' restaurant.

Located on the tiny square of Pyrgos village, this small traditional family taverna will make you fall in love with Santorini’s specialities and in general Greek food! Go for their famous ‘Santorini’ salad with ‘chloro’ cheese - a locally produced cheese - and don’t forget to taste some grilled sardines!

A Greek island visit is not complete without visiting a traditional fish taverna! So, head to ‘Perivolos’ restaurant for some Greek fish and meze by the sea.  Taste Greek fava and tomato fritters or ‘tomatokeftedes’, as Greeks call it; It is one of the most famous local appetizers and the ideal meze to pair with some tsipouro!

For those who love exploring food and wine, there is no better place than Domaine Sigalas, one of the most interesting wineries of the island.

Founded in 1991, this small winery is the best place to learn about Santorini’s grape varieties such as Assyrtiko, Aidani and Mavrotragano. The best part? You get to taste them together with some really yummy dishes such as stuffed vine leaves or ceviche. 

If you need some extra romance head to Imerovigli. A table on 'Kapari' wine restaurant’s terrace offers some of the most beautiful sunset views on the island. Sometimes the sunset is so perfect that might make you forget about your food!

For a special gastronomic journey try ‘Mikrasia’ restaurant, located in the heart of Oia. This place not only offers unique caldera views, a stunning setting for an intimate candlelight dinner but it’s also the ideal spot for a fine dining experience.

The menu, inspired by Smyrna - today Izmir - beautifully blends local food with Anatolian flavours. To make the most of it, go for the 9 or 11 steps menu…you will not regret it!
