Great service and sunsets

The greek salad with Santorini cherry tomatoes was our favorite. The baklava, souvlaki, and mixed seafood plate were also wonderful. We ended up going three times because the service was friendly and on point and the food was good. On the island it was hit or miss with many of the restaurants. It... read more

Run by very friendly people who always gave us a lovely welcome. The food choice is similar to other tavernas but the standard of cooking was superior. We never failed to enjoy our meals there whatever we chose ( we ate there 5 nights out of the 12 we spent in Santorini solely because we wanted quality ).The sunsets were... More

The location is lovely; the service is very friendly and the food is delicious. Get there before sunset to take advantage of the position of the restaurant. Humble and simple interior; but worth the view outside!

A good location with nice views. We shared a mixed meat platter which was delicious and huge. Then finished with a chocolate dessert. A fun atmosphere and great place with friendly service.

Stopped here for gorgeous views of the sunset and had an authentic Greek meal at this family run establishment. Prices are reasonable and the food is excellent. We ordered several plates of appetizers and main courses shared amongst the group. Spectacular views of the sunset.

The taverna is a family own restaurant and the food is excellent made with passion. The hosts are very friendly and kind. You can watch the sunset going to sleep in the Mediterranean Sea with a glass of the house wine or nice cold Greek beer. We had for starter the salads (tziziki. Eggplant, Greek) and a dish of pepper... More

A very friendly, family run, taverna in a beautiful location, overlooking the caldera and with sunset views. Food was excellent and caters for all tastes, and even if you just drop in for a coffee and a nightcap you will be made to feel especially welcome.
