“Enjoyed 2 great lunches in this lovely little spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Whist not cheap the prices are fairly average for Santorini, service is fine but the stars of the show here are the great views and lovely food. Salads so fresh, roast veg beautifully cooked & the pie /flan was fab!

May have been nice to eat here early evening so we could have had a fuller meal.

“Amazing sunset dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

This is a great place to have a sunset meal while in Oia. You do need to book though if you want a front table overlooking the caldera. It is popular and the food is good too , not too over priced. Very romantic spot, great one to propose!

“A dining MUST on Santorini!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We stumbled upon this restaurant after wandering the streets of Oia. We had the most delectable delicious lunch. We sat on the edge of the terrace looking out at one of he Most Spectaculr views !! Our lunch of sumptuous Greek Salad , mouth watering Lamb Meatballs, crunchy potato chip skewers and the local wine!! You may think this sounds like a simple/ plain meal ...it was so fresh and tasty!!!! The food, the view, the service and staff all created the most wonderful afternoon of dining!!!
Certainly- One of the highlights of The Greek Islands!!!!

“To dine with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We had lunch at this wonderful little place, and as others write the view is outstanding. I will return for sunset next time, as this would be the ultimate. Food was very good. Our server was very prompt and gave us everything we needed! I would put this place on your list of restaurants for sure while in Oia! Great Place.

“Best Place to Watch the Sunset”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

We went to watch the sunset near the castle the first night we were in Oia and had read that Kastro was a great place to watch it from, but of course it was full. So we made a reservation for the following night, and man, it was worth the wait. Its the best seat in the house to watch 'the best sunset in the world.' The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. We tried the stuffed olives and were impressed. We also had the spearmint meatballs, pesto beef pasta, and grilled lamb and all were delicious. The price was a bit higher than other places we'd eaten in Oia but with the view and the service it was definitely worth it.
