Very cosy restaurant just at the entrance to main pathway. It looks like typical Greek taverna I had in my mind. Small tables and blue/white table covers. We just came there for small lunch, which was OK - we had beutifuly looking salad with cod and fried calamari, which were a bit to overdone.
Friendly staff and great location. As it is a place with history you can take a postcard with some historic photo of the place. Very decent bill in the end which came with the "shot" of some local alco

As we wrote in the title the food was ok, even though the choice appeared to be a little limited and they were exceeding a little bit too much with garlic. What we did not really like and kept us from giving an average evaluation was the poor quality of the service. Waiters were rude, plain and simple. Add it up to the fact that the place is not so cheap and you will surely find a better option in the area. Not recommended.

Eat there twice and good both times. A small range on the menu but well executed and quite traditional. A number of Tavernas on Santorini have tried to go into more esoteric menus to try and justify higher prices. Most fail badly. Atakion sticks to what it does well, serves with a smile and as such deserves to be well supported

This is just another post in a long list of praise for the amazing food. I would like to highlight the friendliness of the staff and his great recommendations. We never had enough of the octopus! The eggplant and prawns in spinach is also a must try. All in all, a truly wonderful experience on the lovely island.

Every dish was great: the traditional Fava, the delicious White Eggplant dip, the home made Moussaka... but do not miss the Grilled Shrimps with Spinachs and Ouzo sauce. Just amazing.
