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

We waited 50 minutes for our bread to arrive! No apologies from the waiter and only 2 tables filled at the restaura nt. We were so hungry that we were about to run back to our villa to grab something to eat. The food was fine, although the squid was undercooked.

We ate lunch at Ellis after arriving at our accomodation just above the restaurant . It has great views over the Caldara. We started with Greek dips and then followed with Prawn Pasta for two, which came on one large platter with large fresh prawns. Could not fault.

This restaurant was right next door to our hotel. We chose to eat there the first night simply because it was convenient. We ate there again the next two nights because we enjoyed it so much. The menu offered many different types of food. Everything we all ordered (there were four of us) was very good. The staff was very... More

We found this little gem on a recommendation from our tour guide. Never would have found it otherwise. We were treated to some light jazz with our amazing food and some great local white wine. The view, overlooking the Caldera, couldn't be beat. Don't try to do this restaurant in a rush, as they take their time. As should you.
