One of the original, still one of the best

This spot has been open for years in Calgary and serves up very authentic Greek food. They are a fun bustling bunch serving you. The tables are a bit cramped but adds to the fun atmosphere. Excellent legs of lamb.

Great Greek Food

Santorini has a great menu, with some delicious items made in a really authentic way. Their appetizers are all terrific, so make sure you try some of those before you eat. You'll want to come back as soon as you leave!

I'm not sure why this restaurant gets such good reviews, but maybe it's a reflection of the lack of choice in Greek food in Calgary. After dining here several times and trying most of what's offered on the menu, I've never been particularly impressed. The souvlaki is always OK, the lamb fish dishes are quite good, but the sides are nothing special. The rice, lemon roasted potatoes and... more

Greek authenticity at its best! I'm just disappointed that I've lived in Calgary for so long and just discovered this place. It puts other Greek restaurants to shame. The baklava is the way it should be, smothered in syrup and honey. My husband is Greek and was extremely happy with his food. The staff is all Greek, from Cyprus I believe. Go here if you want Greek authentic food.

This place serves the best Greek food in Calgary and is decorated like a restaurant you would find in Fira.

Just try the lamb chops.

Until I find a better Greek joint in town, this restaurant is a five-star in my book.

Second visit to Santorini - simple surroundings with close set tables. Agree that appetizers are really good (calamari, saganaki), but have not been impressed with the entrees (over/under done). Service is consistently excellent. Value for dollar not great.

I rate the Food a 10 because their appetizers are EXCELLENT. The entrees are ok. A little pricey for what you get. I recommend going to OPA for the chicken Soulvaki. I didn't really enjoy my shrimp and scallop combo. I'm sure my boyfriend did. My friend didn't really like her chicken breast either. However, my one friend who was eating the salmon said it was good. For me, I would... more

Very traditional authentic Greek can be found in this cozy little building on Center Street, just over the bridge and a few blocks north of downtown. On a busy night there are regular, sudden bursts of flame as diners order CAD 6 plates of Saganaki, an appetizer of salty Greek goat cheese fried and then lit up in a tableside show. The entrees range from Souvlakis (CAD 14-16) to Ortikia, which... more
