“Wonderful sunset spoiled”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

We went to this so-celebrated restaurant to see the sunset but we DID NOT SEE IT!
They put a bunch of people (to play instruments and sing) IN FRONT OF THE SUNSET so that nobody could see anything but these people.
Plus, the fish was not fresh even though we were some 100 m above the sea level, and when I told them, I was almost laughed at!
Awful evening, a night and a sunset completely spoiled.

“So nice we would hire the place out for our wedding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

My fiancée found Kathros Lounge on TA whilst looking for a bar to watch the sunset before we go for dinner. We got there and fell in love with the place do much we decided to stay for dinner. I had Swordfish and it was one if the nicest dishes I've ever had. Live music with an opra singer twice weekly really sets the atmosphere for a romantic dinner.

“Gorgeous bar, great food and live music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Had a fantastic night here on honeymoon, they had a live jazz band who were very good and the food was great! Only suggestion would be to have French fries with the burgers for the dinner menu and not crisps, but I had fish with rice so I was more than happy!
So glad we spent the evening here well worth going slightly off the beaten track!

“Great View, Wonderful People!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

We found this great place while looking for the beach below. The food is amazing, best I had in Oia. The hospitality of all who own and work at Katharos is the best part! They treat you like family. They also provide wonderful music! This is a must while visiting Santorini!
