If you want beautiful traditional Greek food this is your place. We had it recommended by a local and we had a beautiful feast. Tucked away in the alleys of the shopping zone in Fira we had to ask where it was and we were easily guided to it. Thoroughly recommend the lamb & prawns, thanks for a fabulous meal.

The food is above average, but the owner tends to be rude and abrupt. The reviews range from great to poor. It would appear, then, you have to catch the owner when he's not having a bad hair day. Wouldn't go back period.

We ate here twice and had 2 very different experiences. The 1st time was awesome, they hosted us well and we had baked lamb which came looking pretty boring but was packed with flavour. So we went back and the older guy was pretty crummy and abrupt. We had meatballs which were nice but nothing spectacular. The tomato sauce was... More

We stumbled across this great find and didn't have to wait too long for lunch. Delicious local cuisine. Recommended are the stuffed zucchini and grilled squid. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for a quick eat in Fira!

The food was very good here, some of the best we had in Santorini especially the beef stifado. However, the manager (owner?) couldn't wait for the next lot of people to come in. The whole meal was rushed. When asking for a particular wine I was questioned whether I knew anything about wine! We'd just finished our first course when... More

This is one of the rare place where you can actually find good real food with local hospitality. I was sent there by a local, although probably many tourist dine here yet you can find also locals. I will miss this place.

Didn't get a chance to sit down. The owner was so rude about the seating of our kids that we left. I have heard the food is good but couldn't get past the rudeness of the management.

We were on Santorini for 5 days. I think we ate there 4 times. Everything we tried was wonderful. Try the cuttlefish with wine. Very very tasty. I ordered that the first time, and the server was like, "are you sure, have you ever had cuttlefish?" (I had). Most tourists I think stick to things like chicken souvlaki. I also... More

The food was so so, the decor is standard tat and the service - headed by the owner is rubbish, the service we got was okay but owner arguing with a customer about delivering food to a table when it wasn't ordered by the diners? Then demanding he be paid for food none ordered, sounds a wee bit like a... More

We attempted to eat at this restaurant and the owner/manager was very rude and unwelcoming. The restaurant closed 45 mins. later than arrival, but he rudely said that he would not seat us. He could have used more polite manners. This was our only poor customer service during our stay in Fira. We highly recommend the customer service and traditional... More
