Great spot to have a cocktail, cold beer or bottle of wine along with some delicious tapas. The staff were super friendly and hospitable. The bar was trendy with a fresh modern decor. It is a bit of a walk from the main town but worth it for something different. TAKE CASH as they have no signal for credit card... More

My partner and I initially came here for a drink and the sunset after having it recommended as a way to see the sunset without the crowds. Once we sat down however and saw the menu, we just had to get some food. It sounded amazing and it was! The shrimp and lamb was beautiful as was the haloumi. Our... More

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 of them. They were a bit of hit and... More

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
