“Excellent Food & Glorious Sunset Romantic Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

We wanted to see the famous sunset in Fira and enjoy an excellent meal whilst viewing it. We were not disappointed. We booked a table late afternoon so we would have a front table with unrestricted view of the sunset in the early evening and into the night. The meal was excellent, wine also a good choice from a strong list. We had no previous knowledge of this restaurant (not even checking Trip Advisor!) but by swanning around casually looking over places as we rubbernecked in Fira it seemed a good bet and we were pleased it was. Try this restaurant I cannot see how you can be disappointed. Their "tomato marmalade" dip is magic!

“Great cocktails and amazing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Only stopped here for cocktails and a banana split - not cheap but it made us feel very cosmopolitan given the stylish green decor and absolutely perfect view over the caldera.

Happily spent time sipping my apple martini whilst watching yachts and cruise ship shuttles.

“Excellent food, music and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

If you are going for dinner, make sure you go there in time for sunset and get a table with a view. Food was great and staff really helpful and friendly.

“Stylish, great food, great staff and amazing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We were recommended this by our hotel and it did not disappoint. It had a great view if you ask for the tables closest to the edge. Food was delicious and the staff very professional but also friendly.
