“Great setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We had pre-booked a table to celebrate a birthday. When we arrived they had reserved us a really nice table. The food was good and the view was great to watch sunset. The service was really good at the start but after we had our main courses the staff were run off their feet and we were left for a quite a while which meant we didn't have dessert or coffee. The restaurant did a lot of people within a very short space of time so we can understand that the staff were doing their best but a few extra bodies on the ground would have helped. Our bill was 90e for 2 starters, a main course and a starter for main course, a bottle of nice wine and a bottle of water. I would recommend but would also recommend arriving early and grabbing one of the tables they offer just for drinks or see if you can reserve one and then go for dinner after sunsets when the hoards have left and Oia is a bit quieter!

“Not bad food but very poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Slow service and they seemed to have a meltdown while we there. Took half an hour to pay the bill and a lot of frustrated other diners around us.

“Incredible View, Okay Dining Experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We came for the view and were not disappointed. The restaurant is organized with tables on different tiers so that almost every table has an unobstructed view of the sunset. As the restaurant is basically on the westernmost point of Oia, the sunset seems to last for hours.

The food was good but nothing spectacular, and the wait staff had a somewhat challenging evening. It was extremely windy, which made the 2nd half of dinner very chilly (although they did offer blankets). However, the restaurant just seemed to be horribly understaffed (a problem that was exacerbated by the structure of the tables so that waiters have to run up and down the stairs to their respective sections). Our waitress was well-intentioned and nice but there was just too much going on for her to provide decent service.

Overall, we were glad to have had the beautiful sunset as we were not staying in Oia, but we would look elsewhere for dinner on a return trip.

“Rude!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Staff were rude and food very much overpriced - don't bother, there are much nicer places who would appreciate your custom!
