“Worst dining in Oia by far-stay away”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

Terrible place - food, atmosphere, service, value for money ratio..
Setting - lots of small tables so close to each other you touch your neighbor and hear their conversation. Plastic silver chairs, marble table tops, faded flowers, "modern-like" drawings on the wall along with old fixtures - very odd and tasteless ambiance. Cheap printed and laminated menu for dishes that they charge very high prices even for Oia (starters up to 24Eur, main courses 20-40Eur).
Food - really didn't like anything we took. Tiny tiny portions with bad presentation and no taste (if you think of small gourmet portions full of flavors - it's not this case). After paying so much for your dinner you would probably still be hungry heading to a nearest food stall. Really not worth going/paying - there are so many nice places to eat in Oia and Santorini - shame on Red bicycle.
As bonus we got an upset stomach after this "fab" place.

“Overpriced and was taken advantage of by a server so beware!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

I write this so you may not be taken advantage of! I do believe it was the fault of the server and possibly a little of my own for not asking but does anyone spend 90E on the special of the day of spaghetti and lobster? Looking at the menu there weren't other items that high in price and since it wasn't explained how it was even being served it came as a complete shock when a whole, over cooked, lobster came with boring spaghetti! I asked when he placed it down how much this would be and he laughed with a smirk and said 90E and I was hoping he was joking! But he wasn't! Also he didn't explain that the soup although good was cold not hot, so disappointed! Others in our group of 5 said their meals were overpriced with small portions and nothing especially tasty! All in all I can't blame the restaurant itself but the server shouldn't be working in the tourist industry if he is going to be an asset to the business!

“View makes up for lack of flavour!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

We went to try, what read as an exciting innovative menu. The view was lovely, the crowds had left. The seasoning also appeared to have vanished with the cruise crowds.
Don't go. Along with overpriced poorly cooked food and exorbitant wine prices you experience can't be bothered waiting staff who are more interested in looking cool than asking you how the good tastes-they didn't as they obviously know it is not that great. Worse food of a week of very good stuff in a variety of other places.
