So good we went back the following night

We went here after a local recommended it and we had the nicest meal of our holiday. The fish dish I had was just delicious and my wife said her sweet and sour pork dish was one of the nicest meals she has had. This is a gorgeous restaurant with very friendly staff and owner. We liked it so much... read more

My wife and I had dinner here one night during our honeymoon and were so impressed with the wonderful food and beautiful ambiance. This was easily our favorite restaurant during the entirety of our trip in Greece and had great vegetarian choices.

Our best eating experience during our 10 day stay in Santorini due to the fact that the niece who was the head waitress was extremely nice and interested in all the guests. She is an import from Canada who was working for the family during a few months of the busy season but when she entered the room, the room... More

Lovely restaurant in the alleyways of Oia. Beautifull setting for elegant outside dining, looked after by Spiros and his mother and providing excellent individual service and exquisite food. Visited three times during our stay at the beginning of October and would recommend to everyone without reservation.

We tried two mains. Fish (dory, baked, with grilled veg) was very good. Baked lamb, mentioned as a favourite, was dry. Staff very friendly, made up for disappointing main with desert comp. nice courtyard.

We found this place en route to another restaurant and decided to try it tonight. It's an old former sea captain's house and, along with a beautiful courtyard, with candles set into the walls, dripping feet of wax, the building is authentic and beautiful. We were well looked after by the owner's Canadian niece , and our meal was beautifully... More

Lovely setting, inside and outside dining. Outside there are beautiful pink and white bourgainvilleas providing a decorative canopy, with dripping candles inset into the walls - highly effective and provides a romantic and relaxing atmosphere. I loved this place, but most importantly, the food and service were excellent. The waiter explained certain dishes, how they were prepared and cooked and... More

The best meal we had in Oia. On a backstreet that takes a bit of finding, it more than worth the effort. A quite beautiful courtyard setting is just the start of a wonderful experience. The service is first class and the food is exquisite. There is a very good selection on the menu and fellow diners at other tables... More

After reading the reviews we expected quality food but were very disappointed. The lead waiter was rude and inattentive and then when paying the bill actually extorted a tip from us after an aggressive discussion in front of my children. I would never recommend this place.
