“Old, quaint, good !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

A gorgeous little taverna with great food. Not pretentious, friendly staff, great service and always an excellent meal. The place mats show the 90 year old history and the blue and white setting is wry Greek. A must if you are staying in Firastefani.

“Amazing yogurt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

Very nice place with tipical Santorini dishes and a familiar atmosphere. Not touristic and pretty authentic. Leave some space in your stomach for the dessert!

“90 years of service Grandfather, Father and Son”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

This is in my view one of the best restaurants on Santorini. It is family run for three generations and serve the most amazing food. Try the cheese pie for starters with a heavenly mixture of freshly cooked vegetables and cheese in a puff pastry case. Aside from the food the view across the Caldera is sublime. Do eat outside in the evening for the best of the sunset on the island.

“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Arrived in Santorini late at night, wandered up the road to this place and took a seat, had some delicious, fresh Greek food sitting outside with a view, very good prices. Friendly service was quite slow though, not sure if it was because they were too busy or we were outside and they kept forgetting about us, still, recommended.

“Simple and delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We stopped in here for a quick dinner after a late arrival in Firastefani. The service was basic at best, often slow to bring menus/drinks/meals, but the food was fresh and delicious. The grilled chicken especially is highly recommended!
