Athens & Santorini, Greece

I will be visiting Athens and Santorini for the first time, and would love some dining suggestions (breakfast, lunch or dinner). Everything from home-style casual to upscale and fancy would be helpful as we want to try a little bit of everything. Thanks so much!

  1. Hello! What months are you going? Most restaurants in Santorini do not open until spring-end of fall.

    Breakfast in Greece is not usually a big meal- i recommend you sit at a cafe and get yogurt with honey or spinach or cheese pies.

    Two great michelin starred restaurants in Athens are Varoulko- refined seafood, and Spondi- French. Wonderful, both of them!
    I always recommend Filistron in Thissio for dinner on their roof with a view of the Acropolis. There you order many small plates like tapas. Make a reservation though to get an ideal table on the roof.

    Also, Aneton in the northern suburbs.

    Tzitzikas kai Mermingas in the center of Athens, casual tavern food but good!

    Ta Kioupia in Kolonaki- lots of plates for reasonable prices.

    Santorini- Tis Pandoras at Amoodi Bay in Oia, Roka in Oia, Naoussa Tavern in Fira, Ambrosia & Nectar, Oia, Selene in Fira

    Hope this helps!
