We ate here one evening. The food was good. The service was less than stellar. This is not a bad place to go, but it is nothing special.

We visit Santorini most years and generally stay in Kamari. This time we decided to venture back over to Perissa as we hadn’t stayed that side for a few years. We were on the search for some good Greek fare and after reading reviews on...More

What a spot! This is a dinner we'll remember for a long time. Sitting as the sun sets in effectively a private restaurant. Great service, delicious fresh home cooked food. And one of the best white wines we've ever had (even though it was €50)....More

We have found out this typical restaurant by chance and we had a stunning experience. Starters are amazing and the fresh fish is an authentic pleasure. I strongly recommend it who wants a taste of typical Greek food.

Delighted to find a traditional taverna, cooking what is available and good, and not trying to provide a standard tourist menu. You go to the counter to see what is cooking, or you choose your fresh fish from the fridge. Just how I remember Greece...More

Hey, Taverna Lava as it used to be doesn’t exist anymore. The chef / manager has changed and the name will change soon too. Apologies!

Hey Lana, thanks for your message. Huh? That’s strange. What were you googling for? If you check for “Lava” we should pop up. In any case, we are open!

How often have you been asked to come to the kitchen to choose your meal? At Taverna Lava we are still living this old Greek tradition, every day. Our philosophy is to provide you an unique food experience for all your senses. We will surprise you every day with home cooked greek delicacies like eggplants rolled with feta cheese, capers and rosemary. Pick your fish - not just what kind of fish - but exactly which one you want and we will grill or fry it freshly for you. Fresh is key for us. Please don't expect us to have fish during full moon or a stormy day - its impossible to get fresh Santorinian fish. Additionally, we partnered up with local farmers and procure produce of Santorinian soil: eggplants, courgette, small tomatoes, wine and much more...If you are tired of choosing from an endless menu, visit us - we will have something new for you to choose from every day.
