Great!!!

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.

Vasili is friendly but could be a bit of a hard sell. The beef soup and fish soup that he recommended were good but also not cheap, €8 each. Other food items were good too. Some places do ask if u want bread, which usually cost u €1.6, but this place just give it to u without asking. Maybe restaurants... More

This is a lovely local taverna. I arrived in Santorini late in the evening and went here for my first meal. The wine, tzadziki and Greek salad were perfect. Vasilli is warm and welcoming. Upon returning we have had moussaka , grilled eggplant salad and chicken souvlaki . All delicious.

The staff helped us choose what to eat and it was so good. As usual, we ordered too much food cause we couldn't help ourselves. The food is so good in Greece. Great place to eat, drink, talk and enjoy Santorini.

Great authentic Greek food in abundant quantity at affordable prices. But the most remarkable memory we will always keep was Vassilis! We felt very welcome since we entered the first time and kept coming back for dinner almost every night. Recommend the beef soup, the seafood platter, the meat platter and all the rest.

Kalispera Simos, ti kanis ? I came in april and in june of 2014. You feel at home and they serve great dishes at reasonable prices. Its outside town but worth it (price and food quality).

It was full while other places were empty. The food is nice and traditional, although not exactly to our taste. It is also very nice suggestion for windy and cold weather - inside you feel yourself like in the garden but the wind and cold do not bother you. People are friendly and smiling, very nice service.
