Had a great meal in this very popular restaurant in Kamari which was invariably busy. It is geared towards the tourist market so not quite the authentic Greek Taverna they like to make themselves out to be.

The only way that I know how to really thank someone for a wonderful experience is to give them a 5 star review on Trip Advisor and Restaurant Alexander certainly deserves this.
We spent 2 weeks in Kamari, Santorini and this was the best restaurant that we visited for traditional Greek food and great atmosphere with traditional bouzouki and keyboard music every night.
The first time that we ate here, we hadn’t booked and had to wait 5 minutes for a table. This was the only restaurant in Kamari which was full night after night. We were handed a glass of ouzo to drink whilst we waited which was a nice touch. The owner got some of the diners on the floor for some dancing during the evening and, whilst we didn’t join them, we certainly enjoyed the atmosphere, so much so that we went back to enjoy our last evening in Kamari but booked beforehand.
Our table was ready on arrival and we were acknowledged and clearly remembered from our first visit. Once again, the food, music and ambiance were excellent. I can recommend this taverna for good traditional food served at a reasonable price with good music and atmosphere.

One of our favourite restaurants, we find it excellent value for money, lots of Classic Greek dishes to choose from. The atmosphere is very friendly and welcoming. Evenings are usually accompanied with typical live Greek music, 2 musicians sometimes accompanied by the hosts. It's a place where we look forward to returning to on our first night in Kamari.

On our recent holiday we asked for traditional Greek tavernas at our hotel - one of the ones recommended was Alexander.

It's on a back street parallel with the front promenade at the original end of the resort, so you wouldn't stumble across it - but it's definitely worth finding.

Absolutely the best Traditional Greek food and atmosphere in Kamari.

Family run unlike many and the food was fantastic - stuffed peppers, stifado, sea bream, kleftiko etc - 6 of us ate there on more than one occasion and no one had a poor word to say.

In addition, every night a duet play traditional Greek songs - some times accompanied by Dad on the drum !! They really added to the atmosphere.

Some nights you need to book a table, it's that popular - but you must visit if in Kamari.

We visited twice in a week and were not disappointed. The food is home cooked local fayre which is well cooked and presented. Along with the live music it makes a great night out.
