Santorini Restaurants & Tavernas : Eating Out
A guide to Santorini's restaurants & tavernas. Traditional Santorini & Greek food with Recipes
Eating is a way of life for the Santorinians and for the Greeks in general. Restaurants are not a place to have
a bite to eat before an evening of entertainment, eating out IS the entertainment. And whether you go to a local tavern or
to a gourmet restaurant you will see that the Greeks take their time over food.
Traditional Santorinian dishes include the fava dip, a salad with cherry tomatoes with chloro cheese, the santorini cucumber
'Katsouni' and capers, tomatokeftedes (tomato rissoles), and the round fat baby courgettes grown locally. Favourite main
courses are dishes of grilled meat, or seafood such as octopus, squid, red snappers and kalamari. Santorini also grows its
own watermelon, which is small, dark in colour with lots of pips, and has an excellent taste.
Santorinian wine by the bottle or barreled wine produced locally, raki or a light beer accompany the meal. No meal
is complete without Greek pastries and thick strong coffee. Taverns are usually cheaper than restaurants - they offer simple but tasty dishes ...
