Before I flew to Greece, I have read multiple blogger sites highly recommending Metaxy Ma Tavern as a must visit restaurant. Once I reached Santorini and asked taxi drivers, shop owners and the hotel for food recommendations, Metaxy Mas was unanimously the top choice. Although I stayed in Fira, it was definitely worthwhile taking a taxi to Pyrgos for this wonderful food experience. The tavern was full of local flavour, not showy and it's all just about savouring the good local Greek cuisine. I ended up trying most of the delicious vegetarian options on the menu over two consecutive-days dinner and my absolute favourite is the grilled porcini mushroom. Just thinking about it makes me salivate. Do get your hotel to make a reservation to avoid disappointment.
