Metaxi Mas is the best restaurant on Santorini. Tucked away from the crowds and off the beaten path, you will be amazed by the stunning views of the ocean and surrounding villages this restaurant offers. Dimitri and his brother Kosta have been delighting customers with their twist on traditional Greek food for over 20 years. All ingredients used are carefully selected giving you the highest quality and consistency every time you dine here. Considering this, it is very affordable for what you get. The menu is mainly fusion Greek food. Plenty of seafood, meat and vegetarian options available. The kadaifi stuffed with cheese and a berry compote is an absolute must! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wine and happy to explain or suggest what to eat or drink. An excellent place for a romantic dinner or a casual one. A dressier sort of place, but not formal by any means. Reservations are a must and better to make days in advance, especially for larger groups. There is almost always a line of people waiting to dine here. We suggest pairing dinner here with cocktails and a movie at the outdoor cinema in Kamari (about a 5 minute drive away).
