I don't get it.

So many reviewers reviewed this place to be so good. But I don't think the food here is that special. Very ordinary flavouring. The restaurant is tucked away, hard to find. And hot(temperature) during lunch. This is the only restaurant that I find disappointing in my Oia dining experience.

A lovely Taverna, recommended to us locally by the owner of Stardust. We ate here twice in September, seated on a quiet terrace, with great views. Food is excellent, local produce, you must try the Manouri cheese covered in sesame seeds and honey. Gets busy especially in evening, so would suggest you book for an evening meal.

I came here just after sunset one evening and luckily snapped up one of the last tables. It's in a very cozy setting just off a small alleyway near the bus/taxi station. The staff were very nice and efficient, the main took a bit of time to arrive but in fairness the restaurant was full and we were also treated... More

We ordered "Saganaki shrimps" and "homemade ravioli".We also tried Roka's homemade wine. It was very tasty. Very quiet and place to eat. Not expensive for Santorini)

My wife and I went here for lunch and left 100% satisfied. The food here is fresh, authentic, delicious and inexpensive Its a little hard to find but well worth the effort. Its just off the main drag. We had grilled Sardines, Prawns with Feta cooked Greek Style in a tomato and capsicum based sauce with a dash of Ouzo..... More

We enjoyed our meal, the food was good and reasonably priced. The one downfall was the insanely slow service and the feeling that we were being ignored by the waitstaff. I know things move a little slower but it was bordering on ridiculous how they ignored our table.

Very very disappointed with the food, and the service, drinks were wrong, food was delayed and wrong, it was served at different times. I shall not be going back there again. Waste of money, this is Charlotte street !

Off the beaten track, cheap and the food was amazing. Full every night and you have to book to get a table! Worth a visit.

We ate here one night on our honeymoon, and the veal tagliatelle really stood out among all the meals we've had in restaurants as one of the best dishes we've ever tasted. It was remarkably good. We almost gave up on finding this restaurant but are so glad we stuck it out and found it among the back-streets.

This places is a bit hidden and was a little hard for us to find. Basic, good food and OK prices. Go through the restaurant for tables with a view.
