Very nice beach with lounges provided for patrons. The restaurant is dug back into the hill - visit the washrooms for a very different experience - but when the weather is good, the outside tables make for the best location. My feta and spinach stuffed squid was exquisite - best squid I have ever tasted.

We were on a 'room only' type of accommodation which meant we needed to find somewhere to eat everyday which had its pros and cons. Only real con was that it was an expensive way of doing it but as long as you put... More

This place is great to escape the usual tourist traps! Seems like a lot of money and thought have gone into the design. There are lots of different seating options from the beach loungers, to casual seating and also proper dining tables. The boat seat has to be a highlight. We visited the first time by quad bike. It was... More

Exo Gialos being the nearest beach to our hotel we decided to give it a go - follow the signs to the restaurant and you find the beach! Low season and the beach is good for comfort - 7 euro for two mattress covered sun loungers and an umbrella and a bottle of water too. Lunchtime Yalos is the only... More

We Found this place by a Pure chance, but what a luck! Food-delicious, atmosphere-awesome. But what made our visit memorable was the owner who was so nice to take His time and suggest us which places to visit in Santorini and was willing to help. Thank you for overall experience! 😊

We kind of by mistake ended up at Exo Gialos Beach. The owner (Tony) transformed a stretch of the beach into a welcoming, modern and trendy restaurant/beach bar. Nice furniture, cosy sitting corners, sun beds, ... We did not stay to eat but looking at the menu and tables around us, everything looked delicious and impeccable. Definitely worth a visit.
