Simple beautiful food

What an incredible place! Beautiful location, food and service. We went for a relaxed lunch and totally enjoyed the experience. The food was simple local cooking with fresh ingredients and pretty reasonably priced too. Would happily go again...

The atmosphere and decoration were nice, but the service was really slow and unorganized. Some people came after us but received food earlier than us. My chicken risotto/rice was pretty good, but my husband did not like his meat with rice. When we were ordering, the waitress said the special was beef with rice. (I even confirmed it the second...

We went looking for this restaurant based upon the reviews and we were so glad we ate here. It is located in Pyrgos so driving or using an ATV is probably the best way to get here. After sitting down, they give you some complimentary Greek liquor. We ordered the pasta and octopus, which were both very good. At the... More

Out of the way of the usual tourist spots but that's what adds to whole excellent dining experience. Food was so authentic Greek and staff were charming and service impeccable. Made to feel very welcome. The beautician in our hotel wrote down some of the dishes for us to try as she goes their regularly with her boyfriend. Always good... More

A classic tavern with an excellent range of Greek food. Fantastic off beat location with great views of the Aegean Sea. We were welcomed with free local raki. The food was super - the baked asparagus, the white eggplant and the smoked trout with chickpeas were very good. So was the pasta ordered by my young daughter. (They have a... More

This is a very good place to eat great Greek food. Everything that we ordered was excellent. For a family of 6, the price was reasonable but the service was not that good, it was very slow, we had to ask several times to have somebody to take our order, once our order was taken, food came at a reasonable...

If you want a bit of variety compared to the average settings/food of the rest of the restaurants in Santorini, definitely try this one. Make sure you reserve early on! If you sit inside you can see the cooks preparing the food in the bustling kitchen.

This was probably our favorite restaurant so far on our four day trip to Athens and Santorini. You're welcomed with a small plate of cheese and olives as well as a small bottle ouzo to share. The wait staff was attentive, spoke english very well and we loved their recommendations for dishes. Had the fried feta as well as potatoes... More
