This restaurant is set into the cliffs of Fira, and offers views that will take your breath away. The food is good enough. A nice avocado salad, lovely gnocci, nice Greek salad. We preferred Archipelagos, just a few feet away. The service was good and the wine list was good. Nice. Not sublime.

So happy with our meal here with the sunset. We had taken our friends whom had never been to Santorini before and they were impressed by both their meal, the service and the view. The summer vegetable risotto was to die for. It will long be remembered as my best meal of our three week trip. What is not to... More

The location of this restaurant is amazing. You can see the sunset from an amazing angle. Amazing view of the caldera, the ocean, and the cruise ships at bay. The food was OK, and the staff was quite nice. We had some misunderstanding regarding what we ordered, and ended up having to reorder. This costed us some extra money, and... More

As a starter we had some feta cheese with tomato jelly which was delicious, as a main course I ordered a linguini with lobster and It was absolutely amazing! We was in the balcony therefore it was super windy, you have to bring some jumper. The view is wordless The best restaurant in Santorini, ever!

We attended a wedding dinner which was prearranged so were expecting something quite special. The restaurant didn't seem to pay much attention to the newly weds and the arrangement they made for them was basic and I felt a little sorry for the couple concerned as it was their very special night. I wasn't impressed with the food either.

This restaurant has the most amazing views! We sat down at the edge of the terrace wile the sun set... It was truly an amazing moment! It did get a little a chilly once the sun went down but they provided blankets. The food was amazing! It's quite expensive but I feel like it was worth it for the once... More
