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.

A reasonably priced meal, with generous happy staff who go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and well fed. Highlights include the greek salad and the spanakopita. I highly recommend. No sunset view but come before or after for a taste of Santorini

Staying right in front of the Romantica we smelled good food for days, tonight we’ve decided to go there for dinner. Vassili started talking in perfect italian, brought a welcome grappa, suggested us a tipical “antipasto” feta with honey (sounds easy, tastes gorgeous!) than spaghetti with super fresh shrimps and roasted lamb... everything! The portion of spaghetti was almost for 2 :) everything very good and price really not high! So happy for this decision!

I don’t know where to start. I wanted to order pork souvlaki the waiter strangely wouldn’t let me to order it instead he pushed me to order the most expensive fish which I refused. In the end I ordered greek spear ribs. When i saw my order i was totally appalled. The waiter brought me pork belly fat with chips, i complained he said that it’s greek ribs. How it can be ribs with no bone just fat. It’s an insult to greek people...and this waiter i have never seen a man like this very odd and strange. He tried to joke talking in different languages but it wasn’t funny it was so annoying i just wanted to run from that place away. And please people check your receipt he also wanted to charge more than i had to pay. I would not recommend this place.

We had a very nice dinner here, Vasilis is very sweet and made us feel very welcome. The fish skewer was delicious and the variety starter is very large. Particularly enjoyed the olive paste starter strangely. Decor, music and food is all quite traditional, it is cute and quite romantic as the name suggests. Reserve a seat though as it gets quite busy!:)

We had a very lovely evening at the restaurant Tavern Romantica. Vasilis the waiter was taking care a lot of us and recommended very good food. We ordered the mixed fish platter which was really a good choice. It was very tasty and the ambient of the restaurant is charming. We can highly recommend this place if you want good food and avoid "high tourist prices". We definitely would eat there again!!!

Delightful restaurant slightly off-the-beaten-track of Fira, and just outside of Firostefani. Great hospitality from the waiter Vassilis who was a superb host. Food was delicious and price was very competitive given the quality of what was on offer. Would recommend this restaurant to any tourists visiting Santorini.

If I could I would give big fat 0, food was dry, tasteless, overcooked, salad without any dressing and tomatoes probably cheapest with no taste and waiter I think he is the owner was very stranger. Be careful he tries to push for more expensive food and he kept saying that that he doesn’t have that or another on the menu, also check your receipt also. I think he paid foo good reviews as food in Greece food is amazing but here not good a lot. Such a shame on such a beautiful evening ruined all night. Also I had stomach pains after !!!!! Not recommending no no no !!!!

Dear customer. Thank you very much for your time for your review. I would like to inform you that the waiter is not the owner of the restaurant as you think. He has been working in our restaurant for 5 years and is excellent at his job. You asked the waiter for kontosouvli and he told you that it does not exist due to non-increased demand. You asked for pancetta and your waiter suggested pork steak for less fat but you insisted on pancetta. When the waiter brought you the dishes you told him that the pancetta is not a pancetta and you showed him photos from meat with big bones. I'm sorry but what you showed him is not a pancetta as he told you. Our restaurant has been operating for 40 years so we know very well the type we offer. Even after all this, the waiter offered to change your plate and you refused. If you did not like the pancetta you should have left it intact and not have eaten it. As for the good reviews you mentioned that we may have paid, I would like to tell you that this is rude and disrespectful first to customers who have a different opinion from you and then to us. You also say that you paid more money. You could ask us to analyze your receipt one by one. Also before ordering in the menu there are detailed dishes and prices where if you think they are expensive you do not sit. Finally, I would like to tell you that for 40 years of operation there has been no sanitary inspection to tell us that our products are unsuitable. Always with appreciation

Vasilis was a very kind and attentive host. We took all of his recommendations for food and they were all perfect. Most notably the red snapper which was some of the best fish I've tried. If I had more days left in Santorini I would come again. Food was very reasonaby priced too,and we quite liked the house white at only 12 euro for a litre!

Vasilis, our waitor, was a lovely gentleman- his approach to clients- a breath of fresh air. His food recommendations were spot on. We had a fresh grilled red snapper as a main and let Vasilis handle the starters- he was spot on with everything he recommended. Lovely spot for dinner a 10 minute walk from the touristy center of Fira. #TrustVasilis

While walking around Firostefani and looking for a place to eat, we saw the great reviews on TA and thought we'd give it a try. Amazing Vasili was there to greet us and make sure we are properly taken care of. We shared a fish platter and found the black snapper to be delicious! Over all, we'd recommend this taverna if you value a friendly host and want to have a taste of Greek authenticity!

We had an amazingly relaxing early evening dinner served by one of the most warm and friendly waiters we have met on our travels. We left the selection of the food to Vasili and just relaxed and enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was delicious and really good value. We’ll definitely go back to visit when we’re an Santorini again.

What a find! Just outside Fira a fantastic restaurant where the welcome was warm and the food was fantastic. The owner welcomed is with an aperitif each before serving the most delicious lamb chops and meat balls. Prices were good as the restaurant is away from Fira and the caldera views but well worth a visit. A some throw from the coastal path so easy to walk back down into Fira.

Vasilios was great he recommended the seafood mix for 2 which would save us money and the cheese honey appetizer which was so yummy. Service was impeccable and the food was fresh and tasty. Their Raki was very smooth and enjoyable. Great restaurant in Firostefani.

They were able to accommodate us even though we did not reserve, and our service was outstanding, from beginning to end. Our host gave amazing recommendations based on our desires/restrictions, especially for an appetizer (some sort of breaded, fried cheese with sesame and honey…. AMAZING) All of the food & drink was in good to large portions. (Overall, The wife and I spent a week in Santorini. This place has top shelf service with great portion for the price. No tourist trap, just an excellent food experience, all-around!!)
