“Still Oia's best by some distance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Simon and Aga were staying in the luxurious
We a few km up the road at the very good value Caldera Memories.
We suggested this Saturday evening as it had been our favourite find back in June when we lunched here. This time we dined - and to a lovely backdrop of sax and rhythm guitar.
I had emailed the lady that lunchtime to reserve - and she came straight back and gave us a great table 2 down from the balcony corner.
We all had a great evening. On account of the company (us), the service (them), the excellent food (them again), the newly introduced Crazy Donkey (hoorah) and the music (see pics). They were rather good too.
We plan to return to Santorini at least annually.
And every time we do, we shall go back to Katharos.
They have just got everything spot on. Holidays are designed for places like Katharos - and vice versa.
Thanks to everybody involved.
ps we are so chuffed that since our visit in June, you have risen up the rankings and now command the no.1 ranking spot. So so deserved.

“A 'Must go to' in Santorini”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

We found this out of the way restaurant by exploring the roads in our car. I wouldn't like to walk here from Oia Unless you really really like walking. Remember it is all uphill from the restaurant to Oia.

It was about 3 o'clock when we got there and there were only two other couples eating so we had the choice of seats.

We overlooked the beach And was not put under any pressure to decide our choice of food and drink.

We chose two cold meze options which were delicious and iced coffee and iced chocolate.

The background music, ambiance, service and views with sea breeze were wonderful making this a very pleasurable experience. Also the toilets are spotless( unless you want to sit down in the gents. LoL)

We only have two days left and are in Perissa but will defiantly go back for another meal.

Reference the sunset and telegraph poles and wires...book a sunset cruise, they are great fun. The sunset is the same sun and the same view as everywhere else.

“A hidden charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

It took awhile to find this restaurant. I wanted to try it, because of the reviews I've read. We stopped by the day before to make dinner reservations for the next evening. The meal was good, and the view of the sunset was beautiful. Live music started at about 8pm. Prices are reasonable.
