“The best of Santorini”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We ate lunch here as part of a tour. Jeep Tours of Santorini (Christo Gio). The outdoor seating is right on the water and the view is amazing. The greek salad was awesome and the staff was very accommodating. Highly recommend.

“Perfct setting”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

We were staying just along the coast in Kamari for my Niece's wedding and we decided to go for a walk one day.. We headed out of Kamari towards the airport along the beach. After a while you have to head inland a little and then walk along the road that runs adjacent to the airport. That's when we spotted the sign for Galini, my wife suggested a little pit stop, a bite to eat and a couple of cold beers.. great idea!! We walked down the little lane that leads to the Galini and sat at the front of the restaurant overlooking the sea.. beautiful views and lovely setting. We didn't want a lot to eat so I ordered the saganaki and my wife ordered the mushrooms in cream sauce... both were absolutely delicious!! We sat for around an hour admiring the views and sipping our Mythos. The service was excellent, both the waiters were very attentive and friendly... One of them asked where we were staying and when we told him Kamari, he seemed really surprised we had walked from there!.. it only took about 25 - 30 mins!!
We decided that, as we were hiring a quad bike the following day, we would go back to The Galini for an evening meal, such was the quality of the food and the friendliness of the people, not to mention the beautiful surroundings.. again!!
So after touring the island throughout the day on our Quad bike we decided to drive through to The Galini in the early evening for a meal. We chose the mixed fish dish for 2... WOW!! Sea bass, prawns, squid, tuna, etc.. very tasty and very fresh. After we had finished our meal the waiter brought over a little piece of Baclava and some ice cream ( on the house ).. then we got up to leave and he came over and asked us to sit back down.. he then came over again with a brandy and a sweet red wine for my wife!.. Lovely touch... I know most of them do something similar but I just thought it was a lovely gesture.
If your out and about near Kamari and you want a really nice meal in excellent surroundings with friendly staff then pay a visit to The Galini, it's well worth it..
Cheers to you all at The Galini and we wish you every success for the future..

“Delicious Food, good service with a great view.”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

We came for lunch 4 times and dinner 3 and were never disappointed with any of the dishes, there were 6 in our party so we had a variety - sea bass, sword fish, chicken souvlakie, mousaka, kleftico and a variety of salads, dips and all were delicious. The food and drink was very reasonably priced in fact for what you get it was cheap.
The waiters Yani and Tony were very friendly and eager to please and happy to recommend the best fish to order, The view from the taverna is great you can sit and watch the moonrise in the evening,
We were staying along the beach in Anna Traditional Apartments so this was a 5 minute walk for us,

“Our best meal in Greece BY FAR!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We were taken to Galini Fish Tavern by our tour guide so I was somewhat suspicious but my concerns were entirely unfounded! The location of the restaurant is on the beach in Kamari on the Island of Santorini / Thira and the breeze off the water was refreshing on the sunny day we visited. The Greek salad was fresh and crispy and delicious. We also had a salad with walnuts and balsamic vinegar that was an excellent accompaniment to the baked feta, which makes my mouth water just thinking about it! We asked for the fresh fish prepared as recommended by the chef and it was absolutely stunning. To top it all off, we enjoyed baklava with ice cream. What a delightful and delicious way to have lunch on this beautiful island.
