Great experience.

The food was so tasty. So many choices of tapas style dishes. This restaurant was a great introduction of Greek food for me. The lamb is beautifully marinaded. Selections of salad with different exotic dressings are memorable. Cocktails are just nice but not great. We went crazy and tried so many... read more

We had our wedding reception here in July 2014 and it was AMAZING! not only did our guests get an amazing sunset while we were getting our photos, they raved about their starters and cocktails that they were to die for! The staff at katharos went above & beyond to give us a magical experience. The shared plates were absolutely... More

This place was not easy to locate, but the view and the food make it all worth it. The food is more Tapas style, small portions that are meant to be shared. As usual we ordered way too much, but it was so good that we ended up eating all of it.

If you want to get away from the sunset crazyness of Oia (meaning hourdes of tourists looking for a place to watch the sunset) -- head down to Katharos Lounge. It's about a 15 minute walk from Oia. Super secluded, great sunset views, relaxing bar area. I thought the food was only ok. We had a great time, though, and... More

My husband and I went after reading these great reviews. But be for warned. This this REALLY out of the way from everything. It was nice but such a hassle to get to. We actually walked around oia for 2 hours trying to find this place even asking for directions from a hotel before we found it. We had missed... More

So we were in Oia and Athens for our Honeymoon and we found this the best restaurant we visited. On Santorini, we stayed in Oia and decided to walk to this venue. It's not far, but not a pleasant walk. I'd recommend you get a cab, as you have to walk on the road for a bit. However, don't be... More

We booked Katharos Lounge in advance for my birthday meal while on holiday in Oia. The walk from our villa near Anemomilos restaurant in Oia down to the Katharos Lounge was about half an hour so perfectly walkable from town but some people may prefer to get a taxi in the heat. The food and drinks were fantastic and the... More

We spent a wonderful evening at Katharos lounge catching up with an old friend who just happened to be in Oia at the same time. It was a very magical night, made even better with the gorgeous view of the sunset, the friendly owners, and the amazing food. After many days battling the crowds in town, Katharos offered a truly...

We walked down to Katharos Lounge from Oia, it took about 15 minutes max and we weren't sure of the way but it was worth looking for, we had a lovely evening. Perhaps a couple of signs on the road might help?. We made our reservation via email a couple of weeks before to get a nice table by the... More
