It depends where you are. Perissa and Kamari are cheaper than Fira or Oia for just about everything.

In Perissa, you're looking around €3 for a large lager, possibly a bit more on the beach road, you'd probably get a good dinner for between €20-€25 per head. You can pay several hundreds of € in Oia if you go to the top end places.

No, you won't. But be advised that regardless of where you eat if you order fresh grilled fish, beef or chicken, unless you see a fixed price on a menu it's sold by weight, so be sure to ask the price first or be prepared for a shock.

Does Perissa normally have fixed price menus?

Yes it does but what brotherleelove says in his reply above about fresh fish, meat etc. applies across the whole island.

If you go to any restaurant in Perissa (or anywhere else on the island for that matter) and they have freshly caught fish on display in refrigerated cabinets, you must ask how much it is first - just like here, fresh fish and meat is relatively expensive.

You should be aware of places not dísplaying prices properly, its a rather common scam practised on some resturants to offer food without showing the price and/or the menu, and then when the bill comes they have charged you an outrageous sum, if they dont display price / offer menu always ask about price, or turn away, and be cautious it they offer specials that are not on the menu, Its a shame this practise because if you travel to a non-tourist part of the country its a general rule that there are specials offered that are not on the menu, and those have often proved to be the tastiest meals, the difference of course is that they dont charge you an unfair price on the bill. I have been cheated twice this way when not thinking and coming from a remote place/ village to the tourist parts

Hi, we have come back from Oia and to give you an idea of restaurant prices two starters and two mains with a bottle of Greek wine at Floga (regarded as upmarket in the centre of Oia) 99 euros. The same at Anemomilos ( home style Greek taverna just outside the town ) 48 euros.

Which provided the most memorable and tastiest food .............Anemomilos !!!!!

I think you should give up on the so-called "up market" places Gill, that sounds like another disappointing experience for you.

I wonder if all these really expensive restaurants are more hype and style over substance.

We are only going in to Oia once for a meal just because it is one thing I have always wanted to do. However the rest of the time we will gladly eat in Perissa.

Hi,

Assuming you are in the 'normal' resorts like Kamari beach or Perissa then prices are same as any touristy resort/island in Greece.

Doubt if you will have 3 courses as such in Greece, hard to get through 2 never mind 3.

Starter 3-6 €, A meat dish would be very roughly 7-10 €, greek salad 7 € 500g gottle o gear 3-4 €,

Supermarket 500g tinnies 1.50 €.

Fish is categorised and priced by weight, the menu should indicate the unit price per Kg. Top category fish is 2-3 times the price of the cheapest, so be very careful with fish.

Always look at prices before entering anywhere, be especially mega-vigilant in Fira town and Oia.

In general there are no fixed price menus, you pick suitably from the menu and share dishes, Greeks do.
