Great fun and excellent value for money

Always busy, this is a Cretan restaurant which serves hearty portions of great, fresh food and gives everyone Raki at the start and at the end of the meal - the latter being warm with honey. Be careful it is powerful stuff. Lying behind a huge Orthodox church this place means

This was definitely our favourite meal of our week on the island! We actually stumbled on it reading Tripadvisor reviews, but then the winemaker at Artspace Winery also recommended it so we knew we had to go. It's the cutest place with a lovely patio. Sadly it was chilly the night we went, but I'd love to have lunch out... More

Every time I go to the island, I go there for the exceptional food and the great hospitality. The view is amazing too! Make sure you have a reservation before you go!

We spent a week in Santorini and had dinner here twice it was so good. To begin with, it has fabulous views we ate outside both evenings on the terrace and they had patio heaters to keep you warm. The menu is very good and reasonably priced for such delicious food. They give you raki to start and end the... More

We loved this restaurant, the best in Santorini. We visited twice during our stay and both times half the people eating were Greek which says it all! The views are stunning, you are can watch the planes land below you. The food is fabulous and great quality. Really nice, relaxed atmosphere. Make sure you book as it gets very busy.... More

We chanced on this restaurant because it came highly recommended by Santorini locals. This is far from any tourist area, and we needed a taxi (would have never found it ourselves). Literally in the middle of nowhere and we had to go through dark country roads. Yet, when we got to the restaurant, it was packed! Reservations are a must,... More

Wonderful meal in the moonlight overlooking Thira, gorgeous at night. Risotto was fab, as usual loads of freebies with the meal, olives, bread, cheese and ouzo to start for free, raki and chocolate pud to end (for free!!!). Great service and friendly kitty cats to speak to.

Had a reservation after a suggestion of a local friend and had one of the best dinner I have ever had. If you want to try local taste of Santorini and had enough from crowded areas, you should definetly go there.

We went on a Hen week to Santorini and Mykonos and this was our first dinner. We were dropped by our taxi to what appeared to be a car park in the middle of nowhere. Be very careful if you're walking in heels, as you'll find it rather difficult walking down the steep hill, or the stairs...in true Santorini fashion... More

This is a place natives eat at. We started off with free ouzo. My wife had Fava beans with scallions olive oil and capers. Then eggplant with tomato and feta cheese. Both were fantastic. I had pork chops with broiled potatoes. They ended the meal with warm grappa ice cream and a brownie. For the two of us it was... More
