From the moment you walk in the door and are greeted by Giorgos or his sister Katerina or any of the very capable staff , you feel very much at home. Like so many of the Greek restaurants , this is a family business with pride and precise execution. The upstairs restaurant is run by Giorgos and his sister Katerina... More

During a 5 day trip to Santorini my partner and I actually ate 3 times at the restaurant, was that good. First for lunch, I fancied something traditional and we ate outside. I had a fantastic tuna and pasta dish, almost licked the plate clean, fantastic sauce. We visited it a second time late in the evening after an terrible... More

We visited Mama Thira after walking past several times and thinking how cute it looked inside with a traditional nautical theme and homely charm. However, this is where the charm ended and after visiting several other restaurants in the nearby area you realise more and more how poor the food and service is. The food was overcooked and dry (we... More

We walked past this place a few times thinking that it looked really touristy and that the food would probably be poor quality. Then we tried it and ended up going back the next night. Great falafel and o. Fact lots of great authentic dishes. Surprised that all of the seafood was frozen but .... You can sit downstairs for... More

We didn't have a bad meal on our recent trip to Fira but overall Mama Thira's was the best. A short walk along the cliff path from Fira and a sunset view to die for awaits. We had the 3 course fish special and plenty of local red wine all for 74 euros. All the staff were very nice and... More

We had a light lunch of appetizers. The food was very good as was the service. The view of the Mediterranean was wonderful. One guest found their grilled octopus tough but everyone else in the group was pleased. The price of a our Santorini salad was 10.5Euro and 8Euro for an eggplant dish which is in line with prices on... More

Noticed the beautifully decorated little place with the powder blue & white theme while on a walk from Fira to the next town. Had to stop on our way back, so we walked in to have a hot chocolate. The restaurant has a lovely view of the caldera and should have a lovely view at sunset. Great hot chocolate!!

Oh Santorini, could anything make it more wonderful? The answer is yes, Mama Thira can make it just a little bit more special to those who adore this Greek isle. My wife and I stumbled into this charming little establishment after walking out in the morning sun all day marveling at the views. We got as they were opening for... More
