The history of Pyrgos Restaurant dates back to the 80’s, when Artemis Denaxas decided to open this tavern in the village of Pyrgos. The love for his island and the village of Pyrgos in particular, along with his passion for the island’s unique products and traditional recipes led him to create a restaurant that would showcase Santorini in dishes bursting with flavour. But he took it a step further and created the first fully organized event venue on the island. The years passed and Artemis’ son, Nikos took over the restaurant’s administration, adding more halls, upgrading and modernizing the facilities and services so as the Pyrgos Restaurant to be established as Santorini’s best wedding and event venue, alongside being a restaurant that offers to its visitors a great gastronomic experience.
