Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Traditional Greek taverna. Friendly staff good food. No sunset views. Price range similar to that of restaurants within Imerovigli.

The food here is wonderful! We ate grilled lamb chops and they were cooked to perfection and were so tasty and flavorful. The eggplant dip with pita bread was light and delicious. The wait staff was pleasant and friendly. No rushing involved! Very relaxing and...enjoyable atmosphere. Truly a hidden gem! Best meal in the three days that i have been in Santorini . Can eat there again and again!More

Traditional greek food. Very tasty and fresh. Brilliant organization and service. All staff deserve the highest praise. Had dinner there 4 days in a row. The only suggestion I have is that their current wine list is somewhat limited and could be expanded. Regardless, this...is the place to go in Imerovigli.More

We ate here twice as it was within walking distance of our apartment. Very friendly staff. Relaxed atmosphere We did not book - just walked in but I bet high season may be different. Varied menu with high quality food Would recommend

Great food and great service from this buzzing and informal restaurant! We particularly loved the fried tomato balls and calamari for starter. The liquor after the main course was a lovely touch too. We walked all along the top of the cliffs to watch the...sunset then stumbled across this restaurant on the way back to the car. Such a great finish to a wonderful holidayMore

On weeks holiday in santorini, so visited Fira, Oia, and various places in between. This was a superb find, by far the best overall experience of anywhere we went. Great food, great service, well priced and such lovely people. Absolutely worth a visit, we've been...twice this time, and we'll be back on our next visit to the island.More

Recommended by our hotel as good local food without the caldera price tags. Good simple food but very good value. Don’t be worried by the bulk wine as it’s good value and tastes good. Shrimp saganaki was super

We went for a dinner and had to wait for 20 min. The food was lovely, we had gemista and moussaka. The service was great both before being seated and while serving. The place has a nice vibe and we felt this is one of...the few places to eat simple Greek food in Imerovigli. Would definitely recommend it for a meal.More

Mama Lena's place is by far the bestest of choice in Imerovigli. My mum & I spent most of our holiday drinking & dining here. The food, the atmosphere, the outstanding friendly service from the staff make you feel like you are at home with...family. If we could give 10 stars we would, but trip advisor only allows you to give 5! If you are ever in Imerovigli you would be a fool to miss out on the most reasonably priced genuine Greek cuisine & hospitality 😍😍😍😍More
