At our last evening in Samtorini, we decided to try this restaurant. It is a cool place. Far from the crowd .... Great sunset ! Better to make a reservation because not a lot of table.... The food was great... More tapas than usual greek food. Ambiance, music, service.... Everything was just... read more

My family of 3 ate here one of the nights of our trip and enjoyed it plenty! We started off with chips and guacamole, and let me tell you, even though the guacamole wasn't spicy. It was SO perfectly made. We ate it all! My son got the chicken and potatoes dish it was good. I got the poblano pepper... More

We are a family of five and had our best meal here during our two and a half week through Athens and the Greek islands. It was a beautiful cliff top restaurant where we were able to eat amazing food and watch a beautiful sunset. We are vegetarian, and found many options on the menu. The items are served in... More

Had katharos lounge recommended to us by staff at our hotel 28 in kamari (on the other side of the island!) We hired a quad to spend a day in oia finishing with a sunset meal here. We both agreed this was the best meal experience we had on our 2 week honeymoon. Booking for a table at sunset is... More

We wanted to see the caldera sunset from the Oia perspective, but didn't want to be crowded by the cruise ship people in Oia's center, so we found this place a little ways down the road from Oia. It's perfect. They have tapas style food and really yummy and generous servings of wine and drinks. We watched the sun go... More

This wonderful little restaurant is located down from Oia on Katharos Beach. There didn't appear to be any other restaurants located near here, which provided us with a private beach restaurant atmosphere. The food was very good, classic Greek island cuisine. According to the owner, his wife and partner does the cooking and uses some of her family recipes. All... More

Wonderful position, perfect to look at the sunset. We ordered 1 appetizer (vegetables ratatoulle with "pita"): very good taste and right quantity for an appetizer. As main course we ordered some chicken pieces with mashrooms served with a white winy spicy creame: perfect! Happy to have ordered it. Finally we had a pleasant fruit pie with vanilla ice cream.

We went here on a recommendation from a local, you need reservations the day prior. The food was a little different than the standard Greek affair. All the dishes were very good, nicely flavoured and presentation was also very good. The view of the sunset is also great, there are power lines in the way of the sunset from the... More

Very much off on its own on the opposite side from Ammoudi Bay. Beautiful location for sunset watching, in a nice relaxed atmosphere. Food was very good and had a little twist on the typical Greek cuisine we had been eating.
