A great find.

Great food, lovely service and a really beautiful setting, with a view over psaramoura beach. We had our one year old with us and still managed to have a relaxed and grown up feeling meal!

Great meal, great service, great view! Really to recommend, especially to the guests from the Peninsula Hotel, since the food is not that great there and walking distance from the hotel (5 minutes only).

We had a lunch there which proved out to be the worst within two weeks of staying at Agia Pelagia. First of all, we had to wait for the soup for almost 1 hour! The same lazy service and long waiting time till the dessert resulted in ~ 2 hours for a lunch. Any pros? There is unusually free salad... More

Excellent food, fantastic location and cool music. In fact the food was probably the best in Agia pegelia, and the only negative was the service, which was slow, but the food was worth the wait!

We ventured up here from the beach after hearing it was one of the best places to eat in Agia Pelagia - it was really tasty, the milkshakes/smoothies were delicious but based on price, location and taste there are better places. Definitely try this place though if you're nearby, you'd be daft not to. Especially if you're here a week... More

We stayed at the Eva Mare hotel and had a la carte dinner nearly every night at its Yamas restaurant. They offer honest and decent local specialties, using fresh ingredients. The Santorini wine (white) was also very much to our liking. The seafood and fish was liked very much, as were the local vegetarian dishes. They were not expensive at... More
