We read about this restaurant in advance and it really lives up to our expectations, and then some. This idyllic place had an amazing view, great service and really good food for reasonable prices. Note; don't go there when it's very windy as this in located directly on the cliff.

A wonderful restaurant to watch the sunset overlooking the volcano. I had the spinach salad, tomato balls (really a fritter), lovely santorini red wine. All was fresh and flavorful. Really enjoyed our dining experience. Good value.

I was in this restaurant twice(!) in mid-June. I go to Santorini regularly every year and had chance to eat in many restaurants in Fira, but this one is really very special. The service is excellent (ask for the manager--Stelios), the food is excellent and the view...just magnificent!

Had dinner at the restaurant - really nice place, overlooking caldera, food was great and not expensive considering the location. Recommend making a booking as it gets pretty busy.

My girlfriend and I chanced upon this restaurant for a late lunch after we got lost walking from the bus station to our villa in Fira. The meal turned out of be one of the best I had in Santorini! After a long flight, we both had strong but flavourful Greek coffees to freshen up, followed by the amazing tomato... More
