“Great sunset view, simple Greek fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Be sure to reserve early and specify a sea side front row table as the sunset is the event. The food is simple, Greek fare that is good, but not great. Nothing stood out other than the sunset, but even that was bit marred by the many bystanders outside of the restaurant that continued to crowd into and block the view. The waiters attempted to keep them away, but with only short lived success.

“Sunset, romance and great food ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

We were lucky to get a table here last night after stumbling across this restaurant off the main pedestrian path through Oia. We saw many people get turned away while we were eating so be sure to book if you want to guarantee a table. We went for the set menu which was excellent but we struggled to eat it all so probably wouldn't go for that unless your really hungry ! Good value option though as the menu is pricey but you expect that for the location. Fabulous views of the sunset, really something special to be enjoying a lovely meal and wine while the sun sets on Oia. The waiters were doing an excellent job of moving people on who were standing in the way of view on tge path around the restaurant! Quite entertaining!! Would highly recommend for a special evening.

“Great sunset and presentation, bad dish taste.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014 via mobile

Castro Restaurant has an amazing sunset view. Probably one of the most beautiful in Oia. The dishes have a great presentation however the taste is not half good as we wish. Disappointing. Great sunset view, bad food!

“Very Memorable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

Located high on a cliff side, this restaurant is a destination meal. Make reservations for a sunset dinner several weeks in advance and you won't be disappointed with the food, view or service. This place is not cheap, but you'll probably remember your visit for the rest of your life, and how often can you say that?

“Great View But Not The Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

We arrived the restaurant after sunset, we managed to get a table without reservation albeit not a particularly nice table. They told us that all the sea view tables were reserved throughout the night, though as the night went, there were empty tables left and they didn't bother to offer us to change to a better table. Food was so so nothing spectacular. Would recommend to visit this restaurant for the stunning view but not food.
