“Fantastic food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

From our welcome to the food quality, my wife and I were completely impressed. The small restaurant provides a great atmosphere overlooking the caldera and although small we were never rushed. We were helped with food choices and we adored everything presented. We will be returning!

“best chocolate soufle in Santorini!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

This is a small restaurant probably 8 tables max located in a magical corner right in front of the Caldera ( best view in Santorini). The food was nicely prepared, with detailed presentation and fantastic service which sometimes is hard to find in Greece. From the 6-7 restaurants we visited around Santorini this was by far the best. If nothing else just go for the chocolate soufle, belive me is absolutely divine! True it is a bit overpriced, but then what restaurant isn't overpriced in Santorini, right?

The dishes were delicious. We had shrimps with mango and a salad with pomegranate, strawberries and quince.Definitely the best salad i have ever tasted!The view was even more astonishing and breathe taking, overlooking the entire caldera from height, unobstractedly.The guy that has the restaurant was very gentle and nice to talk with.Highly recommended!

“Rip off prices for fish. Otherwise nice, but not more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

My husband and I came here for my birthday dinner following our hotel's recommendation.
To summarise: it was a nice evening with good (not great) food, a nice birthday cake surprise (organised by my husband, which they did very nicely), but with an unpleasant surprise when the bill came: 50€ for 1 fish that we shared and that even left us a bit hungry...very cheeky, as the owner knew it was my birthday and we hadn't asked for the price when he recommended us the fish, so he just charged what he thought he could get away with.

When you order fresh fish always ask for the price beforehand!

Otherwise nice place, but not more. The food is good, the view is good. There are better places on Santorini for sure.
