We were looking for something more than Greek cafe food, and saw a sign for this restaurant advertising fish. We hunted it down, and it was a real gem. We didn't order off the menu, just asked for the fish of the day, which was dorado. It came out nicely grilled with olive oil and lemon. Salad was blanched veggies,... More

We were wondering around Fira looking for something to eat, when we stumbled across a staircase with music coming from the top of it. We were intrigued by the menu and decided to go up we were not disappointed. We went for a mixed plate to start with fava beans, aubergine and spiced feta, this was yummy. We then had... More

While the seafood set is meant for two people, it can comfortably feed three. Comes with complimentary wine!

We had our first dinner here in Santorini as its just a stone's throw away from our Suite. Very good choice on the menu and we chose local dishes, such as Mousakka and Keftedes. Gentle staff and genuine food

It is not easy finding the place. We were wondering around and found this place, the view of the volcano is just super!, best to come during the day and admire the view. Service was great, we came during low season thus; all the attention were on us.

This place has a great location for the sunset. There weren't many people there, so we had the place to ourselves for a couple hours. Quite nice food. A little pricey, but worth it for the view.

We went to Ellis' About a week ago and the waiter actually had to turn on the lights in The restaurant: we where the only ones. They had hardly any of the course on The menu. The only things they had where clearly the deep frozen foods and The cooking was poor to say the best. For that price you'd... More

Service a little slow even given a busy service. As we had to ask a number of times for more drinks and the bill. The Lamb kleftiko, Veal dishes were delicious but the moussaka was not all that great. Reasonable price for Santorini. We found it hard to fault the mains at this restaurant and a great view of the... More
