    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A great variety of beers from all over the world can be found in this bar.

    The JUST 4 bar & restaurant is located in central Kamari. Worth checking out!

    Favorite Dish: Food is fantastic, and I tried the steak....a big portion, and you must try the beer battered onion rings with homemade ranch dressing.
    All items are freshly prepared and you can tell.

    Navy's: Style & Presentation

    by steventilly Updated Jun 18, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was a lovely place in Kamari. We ate there when we went to Kamari for the day and returned there to eat again one evening. Well worth the bus ride from Fira! It has, in common with most places at Kamari, a great beachside location. Service was brisk and friendly and the food was wonderful, being Greek "standards" but (for the first time with us) nicely presented, in an almost "nouveau cuisine" way (but not with nouveau cuisine portion sizes!).

    Favorite Dish: First time there we had 3 mezze dishes - Halloumi cheese, tzatziki and saganaki cheese with sour cherry sauce. It all tasted as good as it looked, and it looked pretty darn good.
    Second time there we had the halloumi again (it was the only place we'd seen it on the menu) along with stuffed aubergines (stuffed with a kind of pesto mixture). For mains this night we had tomato risotto for me, which is not something I'd had before, though I've had many, many risottos. It was delicious and will be added to my own repertoire soon. Wife had a salad with Syros cheese and sautéed mushrooms. Again, totally delicious and quite different.

    Kamari: Kiwi

    by mustertal Updated Jan 10, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Kiwi Taverna was a nice, pleasant place to eat. The service was good,and, three days a week they had Greek dancers and music, albeit that the dancers looked most uninterested in what they were doing !

    Favorite Dish: We had a plate of Greek starters, which included, Stuffed Vine leaves, Fava (Greek dip )tomatoe balls and cheeses. Followed by a Greek salad and Baclavas.
    Washed down with a glass or two of Santorini wine.
    The menu was typical of all the restaurants in Kamari.

    I found all the Tavernas served much the same only each one had a slightly different way of cooking it.
    PLEASE BEWARE...........Chips and Rice are served with just about everything, even a potato Omelet has chips in it !!!!!! If in doubt just ask what the dish comes with, then say no rice or chips if you don't want them.
    I don't remember seeing anything specific for vegetarians.

    Syrtaki Restaurant: Lunch On Kamari Beachfront

    by Mikebb Updated Dec 9, 2008

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We arrived at the Kamari beachfront in time for a late lunch. There were restaurants and cafes on the beach front and inland side of the road for half a km. We walked along the beach until we found a setting which appealed to us and provided a good lunch at reasonable price.

    We took one of the blackboard specials, Giro for two people, 2 meals were provided with plenty of meat, fried potatoes and dip. Whilst enjoying our meal we had a great view across the beach to the ocean.

    Cost for 2 persons was 16 Euros plus drinks.

    Fish taverns near the sea, Kamari Santorini

    by Aggeliki Written Aug 26, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kamari is a touristic resort more quite than other villages in Santorini. In the main road there are many restaurants, traditional tavernas, cafes and bars. Service is very good in most of the places. I suggest traditional fish taverns. Be careful to ask about fresh fishes and not frozen.

    Nichteri: Santorinian food

    by csordila Updated Jul 17, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I really know why the Santorini tavernas are so popular with tourists including me.
    You can eat and drink on the edge of a volcano! What could be more exciting? It is just a matter of finding the ones that suits your taste.
    In Thira and Oia you can find whatever you want and at whatever price you can afford or not afford.
    But for good food at affordable prices you should avoid overpriced commercial places and rather go to smaller fish taverns located nearby beaches and villages.

    In Kamari you can find a lot of taverns on the beachfront promenade but most of them are just tourist traps and the quality of the food is questionable.

    The restaurant Nichteri - highly recomended by friends as by far the best in Kamari - has a real Santorinian cuisine, it is more simple than the others, but their food is tasty and cheap.
    You should start by ordering the famous white santorinian eggplants stuffed with cheese, the mint flavoured lavraki fish (sea bass), stuffed onions or tomato keftedes flavoured also with fresh mint. The parade of appetizers is usually accompanied with ouzo or for those not accustomed to it beers.
    If you like to taste really special and unusual local dishes, order a kotsi, a hearty and tender pork shank, which is generaly not on the menu. Its only for guests who know of its existance.
    It is also a great experience finishing your meal with the ice cream loukoumi made from sugared rose petals.

    Favorite Dish: The food is excellent and well worth the price, which is not much higher - if not equal - to other taverns in Kamari.

    Various: Kamari Beach Tavernas and Cafes

    by sandysmith Updated Jun 1, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It takes about 10-15 mins to walk from one end of Kamari - lined with many beach side tavernas and cafes to the other and we tried a few in our few days here. We ate at Almira restaurant and Seaside restaurant - about 35-45 euros for a meal for two for 2 courses (selection of mezes and a main course) Many offer set meals for 2 e.g. Greek plate with salad for about 20 euros.
    Posidon restaurant (towards rock) we enjoyed mixed grill with chips and jacket potato for 20 euros for 2. Almost at the end of the prom towards the rock end is NAVY - their meals were good plates and reasonable value. Cocktails in cafes were about 4-6 euros each, Mythos beer about 3-4 euros for a large one. Cafes with comfy chairs facing the sea where you could sit under shade with a cool drink, cake, ice-cream or all three and read your books - very relaxing upmarket resort we found.
    Just stroll along (menus are on display)and see what takes your fancy - you will be spoilt for choice. I thought if they looked busy then that was a good sign.

    Mango Restaurant: More Beach Food

    by Jmill42 Written Mar 3, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Once again, this was a beachfront restaurant that I visited. I must have eaten at 10 beachfront restaurants, but the two I'll list are the best. This one was located at Kamari beach, and had great seafood and drinks. Maybe it was the drinks that made the food good, but I only had a few, so probably not. It was a very clean, cool little place, with thatch hut roofs over the tables, and comfy white chairs.

    Favorite Dish: Mai Tai... oh, thats not food, is it? Fish once again. Its my advice to eat the specialty of the place, and seafood is the regions specialty, so....

    Almira: Almira

    by sandysmith Updated Jun 1, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Local beachside Taverna our hotel gave us 10% off here and food was good too. A complimentary carafe of wine too at the end of the meal so we could sit and enjoy the beach view with another drink. Good ambience and not too far to walk back to hotel ;-0

    Favorite Dish: Mixed cold meze plate - not as large as I thought it would be compared to other mezes we had this holiday. I had stuffed lamb and Dave Pork and Mushroom in a tomato sauce - both very tasty although not the largest of portions of veg to accompany. With beer and a soft drink cost was about 33 euros with discount.

    SeaSide Restaurant: SeaSide Restaurant

    by sandysmith Written Jun 1, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Last evening meal on Santorini - at the restaurant next door to our hotel and perhaps the one we enjoyed the most - isn't it always the way when its time to go home. Good friendly service
    Could sit inside or covered tables by the beach - our choice.

    Favorite Dish: Starters - Tomato fritters, eggplant salad, pork and mushroom in a sauce (came with chips surprisingly) this virtually filled us up before the mains of grouber fish fillet (delicious) and lamp in a bag - actually it was lamb (very tender cooked with veg and cheesy sauce) but we laughed at how it was misspelt.
    We didn't really need a desert but we shared some baklava and ice-cream to finish - not a large portion, just as well really. Cost about 40 euros.

    TERRACOTTA: THE ITALIAN TREND

    by Orkaena Updated Jul 21, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nice experience, we met the owners, an elder italian couple, at the beach of Kamares and they invited us to their resto this night.
    Calm and warm ambiance, decorated on the basis of terracota colors, mediterranean style.
    The pastas and pizzas are made by their own italian "Maese", and the results are really good, always fresh pastas. Even they have a small (but effective...) selection of italian wines, we "killed" two bottles of Chianti, gggreatt. ...uuups!.. wherrre isss my carrr??...

    Favorite Dish: Fettuccini alioli irrigated with an italian chianti wine.

    NO NAME: What a name!

    by Jeannkelly Written Sep 21, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We got curios by its name "No Name" and then of course the very persuasive waiter just took all his time to explain to us their specialties, thus, we were convinced to dine in the place.

    I should say it was a good dinner and as promised, we were given a glass of wine for free which was good and prompted us to order for a bottle instead.

    Favorite Dish: Don't forget to ask for the antipasto rice wrapped with vine leaves. That was something most notable in the restaurant.

    NAVY: Lunch at NAVY

    by sandysmith Updated Jun 1, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Was fast running out of days to try the restaurants so decided to have a lunch here on our last day.
    Good shady spot to have fruit juices and stare out to the blue sea.

    Favorite Dish: The risotto to share sounded good - really wanted the beef escalope one in creamy sauce but wasn't available so had the mushroom one instead. Freshly prepared to had to wait a while but well worth it. Comes served in its own pan. lunch for 2 with drinks was 20 euros.
