  • Once you set foot inside this haven, there is no mystery why it is consistently voted one of the best bookshops in the world. The location is glorious (plus the rooftop terrace view is insane) the staff are knowledgeable, friendly, funny, passionate and I will add, have the patience of saints. I visited three days in a row and each time heard them answer the same questions from tourists - where is the best place to view the sunset? etc. etc. so many times with grace and good humour. I'm so pleased (and very proud) that they have such a great selection of Greek literature available in translation as well so no one misses out on discovering this country's great writers. I can't say enough about this place other than their passion is evident in every thoughtful nook and cranny of this wonderful little book cave. Bravo levendia, and all the very best for your continued success.
  • Lovely bookstore! and also you can find english,dutch and french books! When you come inside, You will want to buy a book and read in Santorini !
  • This is the stereotypical library. It's slightly underground and has a cat and a dog. The book selections are excellent and the atmosphere is just the best.
  • This is the best bookstore I've seen in my life! The scenery, atmosphere and the service is really good and the staff are kind, there are also stools on the back and the entrance so you don't have to stand up uncomfortably to read! The books that they have chosen are really interesting so you can stay there for hours reading if you are bored! - written by my son Eason
  • Atlantis Books seems like the type of place which use to be a secret that you would marvel at stumbling across. Now, while reviews like this have let the cat (which is for rent at 5€) out of the bag, it is merely one of the greatest bookstores I have ever been to. Enjoy the quotes, timeline, and recommendations of the engaging and knowledgeable staff. Dream wistfully you had the money to take home a rare first edition. Or just sit on the rooftop reading space and realize it is quite possibly the best view you have ever seen from a bookstore.
