About Santorini Greek Taverna

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!

This was the second visit here. We opted to share the cold appetizers, hot appetizers and the sea bass dish (came with potatoes and veggies ), for 3 of us. There was enough to eat and service was good. We will come back.

Awesome experience as usual. Consistently one of the best places to eat in Calgary and the service is second to none.
It helps if you like Greek cuisine as much as I do I suppose, but they do it right at Santorini.

Amazing Greek food just outside the centre of Calgary. By far the best food we've eaten whilst in the city.

would definitely recommend to anyone after a tasty meal and very authentic Greek menu.

Had a craving for lamb. Booked a table just in time as it was super busy that evening. The octopus was tender and delicious. Had to wait a while for my lamb rack and my partners moussaka. But they were both delicious. Lamb was perfect for me - medium well with hardly any pink and very tender. The potato was also tender and tasty.

We sat on the patio on a nice day, and it was busy! The staff seemed a bit overwhelmed through no fault of their own (kitchen injury with a server) but they worked very hard to ensure everybody was kept happy.

FOOD WAS AMAZING. The dolmades alone were so good we ordered some to go. Moussaka was delicious. Everything tasted homemade. It is definitely pricier, but the food.... so good!

We picked Santorini as we wanted Greek food. We were seated upstairs, tables are close together but not the worst I've been to. Food quality was good but very overpriced in my opinion. $25.00 for chicken souvlaki...one skewer, a scoop of rice, a small portion of veggies and 3 potato wedges. Seriously, you get more for 10 bucks at Opa and the quality isn't far off. Others had salads, lots of fresh veggies but smallish portions. Soup and spanakopita was very good.
Very good quality but overpriced.

I have been looking for a great greek restaurant since moving to Calgary and have found most places lacking. Not Santorini! Their food is fantastic! My husband and I enjoyed their 'eat like a Greek' meal and every course was better then the last. Service was impeccable and comfortable! All around a great evening! We will be back.

This is an amazing place. In the past I visited Santorini and other Greek islands number of times and what Santorini tavern has to offer is nothing short of the authentic food I tried in Greece.
We had the cold appetiser sampler ( humus, tzatziki, etc) and grilled cheese that we shared between the 4 of us. The flavours were top notch - there were no leftovers left and we still had quite a few options coming our way. Our waiter was very attentive and offered additional pots bread. The real feast started when the mains arrived. I ordered shrimps in wine and tomato sauce, my husband had roast lamb that was pretty amazing ( tender and juicy so he even didn't need a knife to help himself out). Our friends had a main meal sampler ( mousaka, various meet skewers ) which disappeared very fast and judging by the speed I think the enjoyed it as much as we did ours. Highly recommended especially for those who are looking for authentic experience ! We will be back.

Never disappoints. I had 3 buddies in from another province, passing through wanting Greek food. Calgary has a few options but this is the best. We simply ordered 2 each of the lunch specials, 4 Greek beers and ate it all tapas-style, sharing all dishes. Service was excellent. She paced the dishes nicely and where a dish may have had 2 of something, she had the kitchen cut into 4 for us. How attentive is that? Left a big tip.
