We chose this restaurant because it looked like a real Greek taverna and not one catering specifically for tourists. It is on the main Fira road, slightly away from the main tourist areas.
We sat upstairs in the shade and got stuck straight into a jug of local white wine served in small Duralex style glasses rather than normal wine glasses. We were liking it already!
We started with some shared dishes - fava beans with capers and onions and savoury rice stuffed local tomatoes and peppers and followed with freshly grilled lamb chops and a Greek salad. The portions are large but everything we ate was absolutely delicious! .....
... so delicious that we went back two days later for another lunch! This time we shared, dolmades, taramasalata, fava, Greek salad and lamb chops. We find the lamb chops in Santorini better than those back home - much more flavour and the dried herbs add a little something extra.
Our meal was even more enjoyable owing to the delightful stories and chat from the Greek owner.
This restaurant is planning to buck the trend this winter by staying open all year round. I wish Triana the best of luck!
