“Our favourite place in Santorini”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

Our first visit to Tasos was after a late flight so it was great to be able to take a very short walk from our accommodation (Meli Meli). We continued to eat here throughout our stay because it just felt so authentic and the owners are very welcoming. Elena is a perfect hostess and is always willing to recommend a dish. Her husband runs the kitchen on his own so please don't expect fast food or fine dining. It's all homemade and they use ingredients from their garden. The tomato balls are amazing (thank you for the recipe!) and the pork on the spit was so tasty and tender. We never had a disappointing meal. Greek music night is Thursday and is well worth a visit. Elena's father in law gets the guests clapping and you may even see some plate smashing! We ate a couple of times on the caldera but this was our favourite place. You can even watch the sunset behind the restaurant. Elena - thank you for our beautiful souvenier. We hope to return with our two boys soon !

“Fabulous food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

We ate at this restaurant one night while there was a power cut in Santorini. The tables were lit up by candlelight and the food was cooked on an outside grill. It was actually the best meal we had in Santorini. The lady running the restaurant is so friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Great little authentic resturant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

We found this small resturant next to our accomodation (Art Balacony) and were so pleased. The food was great, it had very friendly staff and a great feel. We went back for dinner and lunch a coupel more times and were very pleased each time.

One tip, if you are staying at the Art Balcony order the food to go and go sit on your balcony - fantastic food and views to boot.

“Lovely food and great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

Tasos Taverna was a real find. It's located on the main road just outside Imerovigli. Simple and unpretentious, there is no outside seating, but that was a plus as we found the evenings could be quite chilly. The food was delicious and excellent value; we had stuffed mushrooms and an unusual honey pie for appetizers, and for the main I had a delicious chicken souvlaki, whilst my husband tried the special, bream. Accompanied by a carafe of the house wine, and followed by baklava, this was one of the best value meals we had on the island. Elena's friendly service was so helpful too. If you're staying nearby and looking for good home-cooked food at reasonable prices we can thoroughly recommend Tasos Taverna.

“Excellent family run taverna.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

Elena serves, her husband cooks and grandad makes the amazing specials. This restaurant was a real find. Good value, beautifully cooked, traditional Greek food. Many of the vegetables used are grown in the field behind the taverna. Try the Moussaka if it is available - it is sublime! Also ask for the grilled bread with olive oil. Elena is delightful and happy to give away the culinary secrets. Like other reviewers, we sampled a couple of other restaurants, but they were not a patch on Tasos which became our regular.
