“Secret Garden-excellent food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

Kapari Taverna is located in a secret garden hidden along the main road going down into Fira from Firostefani, or just up from the main Fira square. No caldera view but the food is fabulous.

“Authentic ”

One of the few not touristy restaurants in Fira. Great food, great people. It does not have Caldera view but once you go in, you don't mind.

“The best on Santorini!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

We had a great evening there! The food was amazing and the service excellent. It's a traditional restaurant with a beautiful (secret) garden and nice music. I was amazed by the taste of all foods and drinks. I have been to many restaurants but this one it's my favorite now!

“Interesting and unusual variation of a Greek taverna!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

This restaurant does not have the views of others in the town, but it's courtyard/ outside seating area was a bit like a secret garden, with trellises and planting to hide the road that runs past.
There were plenty of people coming and going whilst we enjoyed our meal, including locals which is always a positive sign.
The menu was really unusual, perhaps really traditional, as opposed to the 'tourist version' of, Greek food.
We started with fava and courgette balls, both generous in size, piping hot and tasty! My hubby then had a rabbit dish, which he said was delicious, and I had lamb wrapped with vine leaves, which was tender and succulent.
The service was friendly and personal, and we were given a little handmade lavender bag with our bill, which was a nice keepsake of a gorgeous meal!
We would certainly recommend anyone wanting to try more unusual/ traditional food to eat here, even if it does mean having to forgo the views afforded by other nearby restaurants!!!

A local woman who runs a shop not too far away insisted that we visit this restaurant- if only for the baked feta with honey and sesame seeds. She was SO right! I loved the laid back ambiance of the place (including the resident cat), and the food was fantastic. I could have eaten the entire block of that baked feta. Unfortunately, we came here on our last night on the island, so we didn't have the chance to come back. When I return to Santorini, this will be my first stop!
