Santorini Taverna

Me and my wife visited Santorini Taverna this week while staying in the area. The food itself was quite good - I had the Souvla and my wife the chicken shish kebab - no complaints there. And the avgolomeno soup starter was also very nice. The only problem seemed to be with the staff - the waitress spilled a drink over one guest and then accused her of knocking it over! And the "complimentary" pitta bread and olives later added to the bill was a devious touch. 12% service charge added to the bill isn't completely unreasonable - but 12% of 48 pounds is NOT 10.75!!! I don;t know whether this was deliberate or not. Elsewhere, the service seemed to worsen immediately when a group of businessmen, obviously friendly with the owner, arrived. Seeing the attentive service they received highlighted how poor the rest of us were dealt with. Overall, I can't really fault the food - it was very good. Unfortunately, I've had seen better customer service at McDonald's. at 59 pounds for two people (with no wine) it also seemed overpriced. One for the tin-skinned only!
