kastro

no st address, Oia, Greece
Website
Update restaurant details
Ranked #12 of 56 restaurants in Oia
Certificate of Excellence 2013
Cuisines: Greek
Dining options: Reservations, Late Night
Description: We have had dinner at this restaurant with probably the best view of sunset in Oia once in 2007, again last night and enjoyed it so much we're going back tonight. The view is exceptional, the food is excellent (I enjoyed it the food much more than Kypradia...the top rated restaurant), the service was terrific and the prices much more reasonable than would be expected for the location. We had no trouble booking a great table with the view we wanted and everything about the experience was as good as I could hope to have in this incredible place. I am amazed Kastro isn't even listed although it is referred to (and positively) in the Oia forum. Definitely list it.

A perfect location for combining a view of the sunset with a nice dinner. Make sure to prebook a front row table (6:30 pm is a good time). Service was good, the lamb excellent, and the wine a good match for the reds of the setting sun. Not cheap, but not overpriced either. You find it between the windmill and... More

I've been here at the begging of season 2013, so it wasn't so crowded for the sunset, as the restaurant is situated next to the ruins from were everybody come to watch the sunset. Amazing chocolate cake & good wine, a little bit pricey, but I guess you have to pay for the view too :).

We lucked out and snagged a table along the overlook after booking a reservation through our hotel. If we had the original table just back one row of tables the review would not have changed much. The view is really best away from the restaurant looking back. Luckily you're a short walk to the main overlook and can order, walk... More

We chanced upon this lovely spot when we were at the Castle just above Amoudi Bay. It was 1130am and it looked closed as all the umbrellas were still closed. We walked up and the young man said yes they were open and to sit anywhere. Coming from the equator we picked a shady spot but everyone else would've picked... More

Just came back from Oia and wanted to say we had a wonderful dinner at Kastro watching the sunset. The restaurant is easy to get to, right below the pedestrian path that gets you to the end of the island. We were a group of 7 and they gave us a table right at the end so that we had... More

We stumbled upon this cozy little restaurant with the most magnificent views! The food was gorgeous, a tad pricey but what do you expect with such amazing views! I would definitely recommend this to anyone going to eat in Oia!

I happened upon Kastro as I was walking around town one day. I had a late lunch and was not disappointed. Of particular note, I must say that I was given a great table, for four, when I was solo. This isn't always the case, so it was appreciated. I had space to place my camera and other items. The... More
