“Where do you begin??? The view? The food? The service?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

This restaurant had been recommended by our travel agent and it soon became apparent why so many others were also clambering to get a seat. My friend and I were lucky enough to score a table due to a no show and we had one of the best nights of our 2 week stay in Greece. The food (Souvlaki and Greek salad) was delicious and well priced and the service was nothing short of delightful. Although it was a full house our waiter was quite attentive and at the same time, also knew when to keep his distance so we could enjoy one of the best sunsets in the world. We enjoyed a glass of white wine (very special thank you to the patron who sent it to our table) as we marvelled at the unbelievable beauty of a the sun slowly disappearing below the horizon. Between the view, the food, the service and as luck would have it, the Canadian contingent at the restaurant the same evening, it was a night to remember!!

“Solid”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We came for lunch. It was solid. The food is above average for Santorini, but not great. I can see how the view might make the experience a bit better, especially at sunset.

“Food was Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Reserved at front row sunset table. Would not rcmnd being here for sunset. The view is amazing if you get a chance to see it. The restaurant seems to cram as many tables as possible onto the patio for sunset, so there is alot of bopping and weaving to see anything. Then there are the tourists that line the walk way right in front of the patio. The servers are constantly trying to shuffle them along, but inevitably, they end up right in the front of the view.
The food was wonderful, the wine great and when all the traffic dies down the ocean view is amazing.
Go for lunch or after the sunset.

“Best view to watch sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by the folks at Rick Steves website. Went here to celebrate my hubby's birthday. Food was good. Restaurant had the best view to watch Santorini's sunset. Reserve table 2 for the best, unobstructed view.

“Best Place to Watch the Sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We went to Kastro in June to watch the amazing sunset in Oia, Santorini. It was recommended to us by Savina at our hotel (160 Thea). The food was great but the view was spectacular. They didn't rush you so we were able to enjoy our wine, food and the amazing sunset. It was the perfect way to end our vacation in Santorini!
