About

For over twenty years, Santorini Greek Taverna has represented the best in Calgary’s Greek cuisine.

Santorini was founded on the Greek values of filoxenia; literally the notion of befriending strangers. Thus, as all guests to Santorini quickly realize, they are immediately made part of the family, whether laughing with host Maria’s comedic personality or joining in on an uplifting Greek dance.

While other Greek restaurants have attempted to reinvent a good thing, Santorini continues to offer the classic, authentic tastes of Greece in a welcoming, Mediterranean setting.


With over 40 Greek dishes, it promises an unforgettable experience.

At Santorini, every day is a celebration!

The seafood platter is nice but a bit pricy; moussaka is a washed - down version lack of eggplants and cheese; roasted lamb is very salty; good service, friendly staff.

Continues to be the best in Calgary for authentic Greek kitchen and ambiance. I have been a customer for over 20 years and they have maintained the high standards that they have set. I will be back.

The food was very good. My husband had the calamari which he said was the best he’s ever had. I had the pastitso which is a family favourite from my youth which tasted very good with a hint of cinnamon flavour to it. The service was wonderful .

Get the Taverna Special, 39 bones/head, worth it. Comes out in waves, multiple small portion dishes. Hour later, you're full af.

We felt rushed, the server was more interested in the political candidate than the diners. Very disappointed. We always said it was one of the best Greek restaraunts in Alberta. We are rethinking that.

The menu didn't have much for gluten free options, the food was overpriced, and it was so loud we did not enjoy our visit with our fiends we hadn't seen for a while.

Great evening, food and service were great. Waitstaff was thorough and attentive. Did a great job on a very busy evening. Sound level was a bit intrusive. Combination of background music, conversation levels and our age dynamics. Not a deal breaker, but worth mentioning.

Very disappointing. The pork and lamb were overdone and tough to even cut with a steak knife. The veggies in tomato sauce did not go with any of the dinners at all. The chicken souvlaki was moist and tasty. The olives and cheese appies were ridiculously overpriced, as were the tzatziki and pita chips. Meals were overpriced for poor quality. We reserved for a birthday celebration, and reminded the waiter as well, but they did nothing at all to recognize the special occasion. We arrived when there were no other customers, but discovered as customers came that the acoustics are impossible to hold a conversation when you're not the only table filled. As the owner's family and friends arrived, all attention and service went to them. We didn't even get our water refilled until we were getting up to leave... And that was after sitting and waiting to get birthday recognition, that never came. Won't ever be returning.

A warm atmosphere with skilled, confident, entertaining servers. We recommend the Taverna Special for a sampling of some of their best dishes. Their lamb is to die for!

When the main course was served my wife's meal was incorrect (pork instead of the chicken she ordered). She was asked if she would prefer the chicken or if the pork was OK. They returned the pork and I ate by myself until the chicken was served. Pretty much ruined the dining experience.

An apology was offered after the fact, but nothing else. Any other restaurant that made an error like this would have done more than simply offer an apology.

We would not dine there again.

Felt like home, friendly, family run restaurant
Lamb chops were spectacular as was the baklava ( we should know, we ordered a second serving)
The suggested wine - Greek of course, was wonderful
Highly recommend , a perfect night out!

Everything was excellent - the food, the ambiance, the service. It was a little expensive for us, but I think it was probably the going rate these days. It was a little bit noisy for us as well, but we are three over 60s, and our hearing is not the greatest. We loved the Saganaki and the roasted potatoes are to die for - not to be missed!!

I was rather disappointed. It has been awhile since we were last here but were excited to go back. I almost choked when I saw how high the prices were and was rather frustrated by them once we got our meals. The portions were fairly small and the veggies were awful.

We overheard the server talking to another couple about how slow business ha been for them...I think they are just losing their followers because of poor quality and expensive meals.
