We stopped by this restaurant unplanned and had to wait about fifteen minutes for a table, which is fine. We were seated overlooking the sea and had sight of the most amazing sunset we have seen in a long time. After waiting fifteen minutes just for a menu we placed our orders and the food arrived about twenty min later.... More

Recently visited Santorini and spent 2 nights in Oia - Wow!! Booked a night at Kastro well in advance of our visit and they were expecting us. We got a front row table where we could watch the famous Oia sunset over a lovely bottle of santorian vino and a great dinner. The menu is a little pricey, but the... More

I have been to Oia many times and tried all kinds of restaurants. On this particular day we spent a good fours hour walking through this magnificent part of Santorini. I was looking for a restaurant that had a particular dessert called a Chicago Special. I have had this ice cream dessert since I was 15. I was happy to... More

The food was amazing, really couldn't fault it. I would go for the stuffed egg plant or grilled veg for starters (or both and share!) The main course was just as good, all the meat and fish was super fresh and the portions were large. Wine is even fairly priced. We spent €170 on two bottles of wine, 2 bottles... More

I found this place through TripAdvisor and booked it well in advance. It is a small, very hard to find restaurant. We were seated by the edge, just as I asked. The service is a bit slow, and the waiter forget what we ordered exactly(at first he forgot we ordered a juice, and then that we ordered desert). The food... More

My girlfriend and I arrived from our cruise ship on May 29 by cable car and had read some reviews for the Kastr Restaurant as our lunch stop. I don't know which to tell you about first the view or the lunch....... We secured a table right over the sea below the view was fantastic. We had some local Greek... More

Everyone rightly raves about the location of this restaurant for watching the sunset. The simple food is good and hearty and the homemade pastas (particularly the pappardelle) are particularly good. Service was friendly. Would definitely recommend this for watching the sunset but even if you have booked, make sure you arrive early so as to get a good table.

First off is location, location, location. We actually arrived post-sunset to Oia and around 2130 for dinner. We had no reservations and still were accomodated promptly with superb views. What a welcome to the island. Appetizers were fantastic, of course the greek salad was great, two of us got fish specials which looked amazing and two of us got lamb,... More

This was only steps from our Oia Castle suite and we loved it so much we ate here for dinner the first night and lunch and dinner the next day! The view is gorgeous during the day and the nights provide a romantic candlelight dinner atmosphere. We ate the lamb with some Greek red wine two nights because it was... More
