Please help me pick 4 restaurants!

Hi!

My husband and I will be arriving in Santorini during the 2nd week of June. We only have 4 nights, then we are off to Crete. We will be spending our anniversary in Santorini, will be staying in Oia at IKIES, and will have a car for part of the time.

Only 4 nights... but SO many great restaurants!!

Please help me choose from this list-

Ambrosia (already booked for our anniversary)

Ochre

Roka

Metaxi Mas

Skala

Kyprida

1800

Thanks in advance!

Metaxi Mas for me. Remember to book and specify their outdoor terrace for the evening session if this is what you want. This terrace isn't opened for the lunch session.

They open for lunch at 2.00pm (I believe).

Metaxi Mas for sure. Not only is it amazing food, it gets you out of the Oia ghetto for a night too.

Drive down below Oia to one of the fish tavernas on the wharf in Amoudi Bay.

Metaxi Mas for sure, but book in advance!! Skala is ok, Kyprida is good, 1800 is not my favorite and just know from friends that Roka and Ocre are good.

I would do Metaxi Mas, Katina or Dimitris Tavern in the port of Oia (Ammoudi) and Melitini tripadvisor.co.nz/ShowUserReviews-g482941-d6…

Other very good ones on the island are http://www.seaside-restaurant.gr/ Agios Georgos beach, http://www.aegialos-beach.com/ on Exo Gialos beach.

Hey and welcome seekinsun:-) Haven't been to Metaxi Mas yet, but on my list for next time as well;-) Agree to head down to Ammoudi just below Oia.. there are 3 tavernas right on the water.. Katerina's. Sunset and Dimitri's all the way at the end;-) Haven't managed to get past Katerina's, lol!

Another option you may want to consider is Kastro where you can get a table with a sunset view.. am sure the fabulous staff at Ikies will be able to make arrangements for you;-) FWIW, you're staying at a magnificent property.. Happy Anniversary.. and Enjoy!

Just to add to the confusion - I'd recommend Aegialos at Exo Gonia. Our favourite.

I'd say Aegialos is situated at Agios Georgos beach (as per Ingela's post at #4), rather than Exo Gonia.

Lovely little beach restaurant with good cooking.

Another restaurant further down the eastern shore is Galini. It's between Monolithos and Kamari (closer to Kamari) and looks over to Anafi.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! OK.... so we are definitely going to try Metaxi Mas, and either Katerina's or Dimitris in Ammoundi. Then, as I mentioned, we are booked at Ambrosia. I think I'll leave the 4th spot open, and take my chances on getting into some of your other restaurant suggestions. Thanks so much!
