The view of the caldera was beautiful, but the food was disappointing and expensive. We ate at many restaurants in Fira and Firostefani, and this one, while it had a pretty view, was towards the bottom of the list as far as the preparation and flavor of the food.

The food, service and view were all great. WE had the special which was sausage, chicken, lamb, beef... fresh vegetables, wine, dessert -- ALL great and more than we could eat! It seemed "Dad" was our server. Very authentic.

Good food in a long established family run restaurant. The downstairs restaurant is more quirky in decor and is my preference. The staff particularly the proprietor work hard to make you welcome and the food is good quality greek fare. No complaints whatsoever and will be going back for a third visit before leaving Santorini

The restaurant was excellent. The food was cooked fresh. The waiting on staff where very friendly and polite. It was a bit on the expensive side, but great food

This was our first lunch when we landed in Santorini, since Santorini was famous for its food, we quite looked forward to try out different local cuisines and this taverna didnt disappoint us. A perfect combination of ambience over looking Aegean sea with really tasty food. We ordered fried tomato balls, called kefides and grilled vegetables which included white eggplants.... More

Very good food but a bit pricey, which is normal for Santorini if you want a seat with a beautiful view.

The worst Gyro I've ever had from a Greek restaurant. The wait staff was average, and price of the food was $$$ for the value.

The location was perfect for enjoying the caldera views but the food was surprisingly average (actually below average for most of what we ordered). The service was fast but strange. The blonde waitress was odd and inappropriate, animatedly flirting and fawning. This happened nowhere else. We couldn't make sense of it. Turned what could have been a very pleasant experience...
