Mama Thira Tavern in Firostefani was my favorite dinner spot in all of Santorini. I was on the island for just over a week and I chose to have dinner here multiple times. As a solo diner who likes to have a longer meal, I usually went on the early side around 4:30pm - 6:30pm and never had a problem... More

Our hotel also recommended this restaurant and we are glad they did. Such a cozy and friendly atmosphere. Good food and wine (house wine). Very attentive staff. Located at one end of Firostefani on the way to Fira alone the main walkway. They have an upstairs dining area with panoramic views. Not expensive like some of the restaurants in Fira... More

We ate dinner here one evening and sat on the outside terrace for the sunset views. Nice to sit up higher than the walking path to get a slightly longer sunset, and were impressed with the friendliness and attention from our waiter. My partner speaks mandarin and our waiter did a good job of displaying his language skills. My Lobster... More

We stumbled across this place on a midday walk and decided to stop in for lunch. We sat inside at a corner table that had breath-taking views from the large open windows. We split 3 appetizers which all just happened to be vegetarian (to my delight!) There were grilled veggies (okay), tomato balls (the best I had on the island),... More

We have been in Santorini for the last 7 days and had 3 evening meals in mama thira all of which were excellent. Great value, very friendly staff and most of all superb food. Happy to have been the last customers of the season in the restaurant tonight. Strongly recommended to other visitors to santorini.

The food here is great, especially the seafood and the Kleftiko. Actually - that is why this place is very good. The location is amazing. The decor is superb. The staff are friendly. The main problem with the place that brings it down a notch is that the service is very very rushed. You feel as though they are trying... More

First night at Allure, we went to Mama Thira since it was just few steps from our door. We had Santorini salad and fish. I forgot what kind of salad we had but was so good.

A modern take on traditional Greek food. Expensive but worth every drachma. Great service and baclava to die for...
