“FOOD DISAPPOINTING”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Very friendly restaurant in the centre of town. The special fish of the day was good, but the "special" prawn dish consisted of 4 meagre prawns in a pink sauce. Very poor!

“Tasty Food and Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We stumbled on this restaurant by chance, late one evening. We looked at the menu which was inviting and prices reasonable. We decided to try it out for a late lnch the next day. We chose (3 adults and 1 child) the meze for starters and mixed grill for main plus wine, beer and soft drinks. Othe service was excellent and made sure our 5 year old was comfortable. The food when it came was very tasty and the portions were excellent. The grilled meats (we also ordered a large Greek salad) and chips was excellent but couldnt finish it so in true American fashion (my sister in law) asked for it to packed up to take away. This wasnt a problem for them. Although it was about 3.30pm there were about 6/7 tables still lunching and seemed to be enjoying the experience. The bill was extremely reasonable and as I said the service attentive but never intrusive. This is a nice restaurant (not posh or pretentious) and has a view of the cobbled street on one side and the sea on the other side (no, not the caldera side) as the dining room is up a flight of stairs and "open". Only little moand.....the straw chairs number the posterior after 2 hours of sitting. Easy to recommend to family group or anyone.

“After Watching the Sunset, EAT HERE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

There are any number of places where you can stand and enjoy those always breathtaking caldera-side sunsets, but there are fewer places where you can enjoy the finest of Greek food with great service AND great prices. And the above-street view of Thira town is charming as well. Seriously. Our dinner here started with the mixed Greek appetizers, and the flavor was the finest and the cost was half of what we paid one evening when we paid for a sunset view. Follow your server's recommendations on what's fresh and special and order that...although the menu is a fun read. Stick with the house wines, for you can't go wrong with any of the amazing Santorini wines.

“Fantastic Greek food with a reasonable price tag”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled on this place and decided to give it a go as we were after reasonably priced Greek food. We weren't disappointed at all. Overlooking one of the cobbled stone streets there is no view of the caldera but that didn't matter to us.

We ordered the mixed Greek appetizers to start which included a range of dips such as tzatiki, hommus, cheese, squid and potato, pita bread, dolmathes and olives. Everything was very tasty.

For main we chose from the specials and had the mixed plate which had souvlaki, moussaka, potatos and Greek salad as well as the gyros which came with potatoes and pita. The specials also had a free glass of wine included but our waiter gave us half a carafe instead! All the food was so tasty and big servings. All up it cost us €40. We would definitely go back here again.

“Great food and great people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

Just stopped in for some apps and a couple pizzas (late night snack) and it was fantastic. Food was great and came out fast! Prices are also reasonable compared to some of the other places with a 'view'. Would definitely come again!
