We were disappointed by this restaurant. Of the places we ate in Santorini this was the poorest. Nice table on the deck overlooking the crater and water. Friendly service but the food was just mediocre, certainly did not like up to recommendations

We went here for dinner and the sunset is just as spectacular as the view from Oia. We went for Greek traditional dishes. Everything tasted good. The wine selection was plentiful. Higher priced but not unreasonable. Bottom line a great view and good food.

After sunset sail, we went back here for a late night dinner, the view is just fantastic. I ordered lamp, and it was cool. But most important, we have a great night chatting with each other, we really enjoy it!

It hasn't changed!!! Fabulous view restaurant in Fira and good food. Greek salad beautiful and fresh; moussaka served in a crock--steaming hot and absolutely delicious!! The white Santorini wine was wonderful too!! Walk down to the church and it will be on the seaside just before you get there!

This restaurant is a great place! The restaurant was recommended by a fellow passenger on a ferry to Santorini, for I was looking to a suitable place to propose. I took a gamble by believing the good man on his word, and it payed off in double. A super location, awesome view, professional, friendly and very thoughtful staff, the food... More

We had our wedding reception here, and must say that the setting was better than we would have ever expected. We had a party of 30, and we had a private patio overlooking the Caldera, including a private downstairs bar and dancing area. It was really special. As this was a wedding reception, we had a special pre fixe menu.... More

Pretty pricey like a lot of the restaurants here offering average food with the hope that the views will distract one's culinary discernment. Good staff, my waiter from Bucharest, who asked how my food was, I said ok, to which he agreed! So I said not good, just average. I know he replied.

We are here on our first night in Santorini and were not disappointed. Service was excellent and prices were as expected for prime position in Fira. Worth it for the ambience and experience.
