“Awesome View!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We were very lucky to come across this restaurant the night before we were leaving. The guy in the front took down our information for a reservation an hour before sunset and promised us a great seat. He wasn't kidding!! We got there and he had saved us the best seat in the restaurant. We ordered some wine and dinner. I had the Salmon with wasabi at first I was hesitant cause of the wasabi but after I tried it.. It was amazing! We'll definitely be going back there when we come back to Santorini

“Nice food with nice view and romantic atmosphere at night ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

It's just next to oia mansion where we stayed in. Excellent customer service. The waiter tries to learn all sort of languages and keeps checking on our table. Very romantic atmosphere at night. Food is nice. We couldn't finish because it's of big portion. Taste is superb. We had carbonara, seafood spag and pork fillet as mains and chocolates soufflé as desert. It's more like chocolate fondant but tastes nice with ice cream.

“good food ~ PERFECT view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

You need to make your reservations early, I would say by 4 hours before sunset. There is the main entrance which faces the water, and then there is the side entrance off the street. They do not open the side entrance until dinner starts, so go around front and make your reservation, they will ask for a deposit to save your seat. Ask for one in front on the roof. Also, it would be advised to show up 1 1/2 hours before sunset to make CERTAIN that you get a good table. Plus you will want time to enjoy your meal. To sit up top, it is required that each person orders an entre. I was there with my daughters. We had entrees, wine and dessert and the total was around 90 euros. The food was good, and the view was incredible. It was definitely worth it to us.

“Dining with a view to die for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We were very fortunate to come across The Sunsets Cafe while roaming around the quaint little streets of Oia. Clearly there is a protocol about securing a dining possy to watch the sunset but being new to this we were very surprised at the generosity and graciousness of our host here. We have watched him explain very politely to the thousandth tourist today (probably something he does every day for seven months of the year) that he would love to host them if they are dining! The place is packed now and literally bursting at the seams with low sunshine and anticipation. We enjoyed two fabulous Strawberry Caprioskas followed by a Greek salad to share, grilled salmon and the local fav Osso Bucco - delicious! They are busy and attentive! What a great find. Pretty as a picture - WiFi, great menu and excellent service! Now just the best sunset in Santorini - sigh

“Awesome sunset, delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We were recommend this place as THE place to see the beautiful Oia sunset. Definitely have your hotel call for reservations so you don't have to try to jostle with the maddening crowd. For such a beautiful view and the food, prices were reasonable. Salmon and pork tenderloin were both absolutely delicious. If you get chilly easily you may want to bring a long sleeve in the evening as the breeze can kick up a little.
