“BEST BEST - BY FAR THE BEST IN SANTORINI. DO NOT MISS IT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

We were recommended this place by a local person in Santorini. We were told that some days the place had live local music and we went there in one of those nights where there was live music (I think the live music is on tuesdays and thursdays but it may be for other nights as well).

The music itself was good, it did give a good taste of the local greek music. the food was fantastic. the location was very sweet and the atmosphere was perfect.

My recommendation would be not to take any main dish but go with various different starters and appetizers and etc..

the staff was very friendly too and the check was also OK. We paid around 55 Euros in total for me and my wife but we ate and drank many things and wanted to try almost everything so if you are on a tight budget you may come out with a less check if you want to pay less as we were beyond our limits of eating because the food was so so good.

If you visit Santorini, do not miss out this place. You wont regret it!! was one of my best experiences in Santorini. Must experience, especially at a might when there is live music.

Great staff great food great place!

“great atmosphere ... but the food and the service are not at the level of the average of the island”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

wine was awful (in both of the color).
All the food came together ... so we were not able to eat hot...
This is not so bad if you come to listen the music and to eat something cold... never order everything in the same time !

It's better to drink beer than wine if you want to enjoy your night.

“Food is excelent!!! Service is awful!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

It is with great sadness that we have left this tavern with some disappointment. We were 4 people having dinner and they have sit us in a table for 2, even if the restaurant was practically empty. When we asked to change the table or at least to add another one to ours, they said it was not possible because a group of musicians would come to perform, and they needed the table for the instruments. After 5 minutes or so, another family of 4 came (2 adults and 2 children) and they have took the table we wanted without any problem, even if they had not any kind of reservation. When we complained about this, they pretended not to understand or speak English and simply turned their back saying: " No no no!!! "
A place that could be really excellent (because the food was really really good), after all is another place who doesn't really care about being nice to the tourists, as they are sure that tomorrow new tourists will come. No to mention that only one waitress was nice; the rest were really rude people.
Its a pitty.
