If you get slightly bored with Greek Food we found a wonderful Italian restuarant on Santorini in Fira, called Galapagos... after days of olive oil, feta cheese and cucumbers, both my husband and myself were thrilled to eat big plates of italian pasta!

Liked Yves Klein Bleu on Mykonos and Selene (beautiful view at sunset, romantic setting) in Fira, on Santorini.

We just got back from Mykonos and Santorini on June 1st. You are absolutely going to love it!!! We ate at Chez Maria and Edem in Mykonos. Both were beautiful and had delicious food. We ate at 1800 in Oia in Santorini, and had delicious food, although the terrace wasn't open to view the sunset. <BR><BR>We took the volcano/hot springs boat tour in Santorini, and although it was a lovely boat ride, don't get your hopes up. The volcano was simply a nice hike, and the "hot springs" was rusty, luke warm water that could only be accessed by jumping off the boat and swimming through FREEZING cold water. While the boat trip was a nice way to view the island from sea, we felt the other elements were a little hyped up.<BR><BR>ENJOY!

Santorini - go to "Franco" cafe in Fira in the evening. It's very special - you sit in lounge chairs facing upwards to the sky and listen to opera/classical music and have drinks. The boat tours a a tourist trap in my opinion.

I second the suggestion for Chez Maria in Mykonos - wonderful atmosphere, great food and service. You'll love it!
