We got the fortune to end up eating at The Cave of Stolidas by chance! What an experience!!! The food was very fresh and delicious, the views were breathtaking, However it was the service what we enjoyed the most. We were treated like family. This place is owned and operated by one family. (Dad, mom, grandma and daughter). We loved... More

We just went to this restaurant to have some drinks in the afternoon, but after seeing the menu and talking to the friendly staff we decided to have our dinner during the sunset at this beautiful place. The food was very good and price fair. We were very late in the season there, so it was quite empty. The food... More

For 10 euros had medium sized fresh fish, French fries, tomatoes, stuffed grape leaf, and glass of wine. Can't ask for more and yet service was first class and did I mention on the beach (oh ya...

I'm writing this a year after the fact (we actually visited in June 2015, not the date below), but I'm still telling people back home in the States about this wonderful little taverna that my teenage daughter found after a visit to the ruins at Akrotiri, so I thought I should rate it for the rest of you. We had... More

The place is opened from 10am until Midnight. We visited Santorini for 10 days and spent about 5 meals here for either lunch or dinner. Such great oceanfront views and a great sea food. The business is owned by a lovely family who provide a great, friendly service. Great for good value drinks!

We had a Greek Salad for two, the Fish special which included delicious grilled fish, potatoes, stuffed vibes (delicious) & tomatoes, bread, a glass of vino each & a large bottle of water. €30 Lovely setting by the sea. Excellent service. Will return.

A couple of weeks ago we stopped at the Cave of Stolidas on the beach about halfway between white/black/red beach and the Akrotiri Archeological Museum (about 10 minutes in each direction). We had read the reviews of Nicolas's Cave on TripAdvisor and had planned to eat there, but the Cave of Stolidas is right next to that restaurant and they... More

A fantastic restaurant, first class service and delightful Greek food. House wine by the litre is a must! Attentive staff and a beautiful outlook across the sea.
