In a tourist over-saturated hotspot like Santorini, one doesn’t really expect to find an authentic little taverna like Aktaion, lovingly producing fresh, delicious dishes that go beyond the predictable, yet still taste like they just came from nonna’s kitchen. The service is warm and genuine,...More

Our dinner here was special. You must eat here if possible; the food is excellent, the place is charming, the service is prompt, and the after dinner drink is unique. Reservations are a must.

We were lucky to snare a table at this small, popular Greek taverna. If you want to go, I would suggest making a reservation. The clientele seemed to be mostly regulars who were known to the staff. The food was very traditional and very well-prepared.

Can't you just delete your review? And it's nice that you have a conscience, but don't worry too much.
