An ok restaurant, nothing special in any department. The views are beautiful-except we missed them as it was raining. The indoor bit is spacious but a bit plain.

We had an excellent meal at Assyrtico. Their interesting interpretations of classic Greek dishes were wonderful.

Whilst some restaurants in Thira are a bit hit and miss, but not this one. We ate here twice, and really enjoyed our meals and wine. Food is Greek or Italian, and served with gorgeous homemade bread. Friendly attentive staff. Seating outdoors or indoors with wonderful views of the caldera, and sunsets.

Our first dinner in breathtaking Santorini. Great selection of Greek wine. Our mains entrées were delicious indeed whilst a memorable starter was the octopus salad. The zucchini was good but nothing terribly outstanding. We were too full to have desserts by the end of the meal unfortunately. The setting and ambience is really apt for dinner on this beautiful island.... More

Food quality and taste is amazing. Presentation as well (if you care about these things). Views are amazing, staff is friendly. It looks kind of fancy at first but don't be fooled, it has traditional greek food and I would say made with high culinary standards. My stepfather had, according to his own words, the best salmon of his life.... More

My boyfriend and I were looking forward to eating here because of the good reviews, but we found that the food was just alright and overpriced. The bread had capers and olives, which would be great if they had told us before (we aren't big fans of either of those things). The appetizers were alright. We had the grilled calamari... More

It's well known that this is one of the best restaurants in Santorini. This is what you are expecting from a restaurant, as most of the places that call themselves restaurants in Greece are in fact more taverns-like. There's a special menu to choose from and very nice wines. Lia is fantastic and very helpful, allways friendly and eager to... More

Yum yum yum!!! Food was delicious, full of flavour and presented nicely. I had the steak with ravioli and it was amazing. Staff were nice, attentive and welcoming. View was beautiful on the balcony. Best place we at in Santorini.
