Recommendation of good and inexpensive restaurant in Santorini and Paros

Dear all

My husband and I will be going to visit the Greek Islands this Easter and we have chosen Santorini and Paros as our points of interests. Since everything in the Euro currency has been risen up sharply because of the fall of the US dollar, we have to be careful on each euro spent even when we are on holiday. Therefore, I would welcome any recommendation of good and inexpensive restaurants in Santorini and Paros. Many thanks.

Which village have you chosen for your stay on Santorini? What you might save in the cost of a good meal you might pay to a taxi driver if you have to go outside your chosen location to eat.

On Santorini, how about Senor Zorba's Mexican Restaurant! Great caldera view!

We are staying at the entrance of Fira town, but it doesn't really matter cos' we would be touring around and would go to Oia and other tourist spots. So any recommendations of restaurants other than those in Fira are also [email protected]!

In Oia, a very good local restaurant, nothing fancy, just good standard Greek food enjoyed by the locals and tourists alike, is "Neptune", on the small main square of the village near the church. If the weather's good and it's not windy, the rooftop dining area provides you with an excellent view of the sea while you dine. Otherwise there is indoor seating.

Along the path from the bus/taxi square to the main village square is another restaurant (sorry, can't think of the name) that has very good food at reasonable prices. No view, however.

As you enter the village, just where the road splits, on the right you will see Laokasti Villas. They have an excellent restaurant.

For something more upscale and gourmet you have 3 choices, "1800", "Ambrosia", and "Oia's Cafe Restaurant".

Well, this is my 3rd try at posting my message:

My husband and I enjoyed our time in Santorini and Paros. My web site has the list of places we dined in: http://greece2001mjp.homestead.com/grrest01.html. Nickola's was one of our favorites while on Santorini (but loooved the gryo's at Luckys), and enjoyed dining at Byzantino and Boudaraki (one of our best meals). Lunch can be very expensive with gyros or a picnic lunch of assorted Greek goodies. Enjoy your trip!

Marko,

As best I can remember, Senor Zorba's is sort of "out in the country" on the road that runs down the west side of the island. It was south of Fira and north of Megalochori, roughly at the turn off to the airport.

We stayed at Volcano View Villas in Santorini, and Senor Zorbas was about a 15 minute walk uphill looking down at the sea..It was a great walk..Lot's of people came to watch the sunset everynight...

Yeungrita - why? Why not just wander around exploring and enjoying, and find an eatery along the way, when you're ready. That's what travel is about, and it's much more fun.

I agree with that statement too...We never plan to eat at a specific restaurant, we just walk around and if we see one that looks interesting, we stop in...Recommendations never hurt of course, but no 2 people ever seem to like the same thing!!

I agree with monicapileggi - one of our favorite casual restaurants in Santorini is Nickolas - excellent food at affordable prices - no menue other than the daily specials which are great! Enjoy!
