Not a vast variety of dishes, however whatever you decide to order is really worth it & it will satisfy your tastes. Polite staff, pleasant atmosphere, good prices.

Its a nice place to dine in with lot of variety in sea food( though I didn't try one). Ordered eggplant and one chicken dish which was more than enough to serve 2 people. The guy serving the food is very polite and nice and knew few Hindi words to greet us. Overall a nice place to dine in.

Such a great night in this amazing little restaurant! The owners are the best and the food is so delicious! We enjoyed every minute and loved the mandatory shot of Raki at the end of the meal! Thanks for a great last night in beautiful Santorini!!

Very disappointing despite the good reviews... I had the roasted which was boiled more than roasted, and more fat than lamb... the vegetables were defrosted, in a word it was not at all what I expected. Canteen food if any. The owner/manager maybe nice to some but is overdoing it to the point that the Japanese clients sitting next to... More

The decoration/ambiance is great but the food is bad! We ordered a fish soup, it literally had no fish in it... It was just a vegetable soup cooked in fish water. The tomato keftedes tasted nothing but oil. We asked for grilled fish, the plate cost 15 euros and they only served half of it. If you have spent sometime... More

We went there because our friends recommended. It was just soooo great food. Fresh seafood, great service and very reasonable price. Can't get anything like this in Chicago.

As with my entire experience in Greece, the people are warm and friendly. This place has a nice choice of meals that are fresh and delish! I would have eaten there again if we were there longer.
