“Santorini surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Having just spent the last week in Imerovigli in Santorini we found this restaurant just off the caldera. The welcome we recieved was very friendly and the food and service was very good.
The restaurant is very well populated in the evening so you will need to book a table, but you will not be disappointed. The waitress is constantly running around ensuring you are enjoying your meal and nothing is too much trouble for her. She and the restaurant are a wecome treat from the long days and bustle of Oia or Fira and the food is excellent. I definately recommnd you visit and enjoy Greek hospitality and food at its best.

“Best Value meal we ate - Twice!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

This little Taverna though just off the main street (so can be a little noisy if you sit outside) is wonderful, inexpensive (for Santorini!) and delicious. The service can be a little slow when it is really busy as there seems to only be 2 front of house staff but they are constantly rushing around looking after people, the female waitress was so warm and welcoming. The Lamb Kleftico was the best we have ever had, so much so we went back again - so much flavour and slow cooked. Highly recommended!!

“Great food at an unexpected location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This restaurant does not have a sea view, and its location is near a somewhat busy street in Imerovigli. If you're stay in Imerovigli (which I highly recommend), you'll notice it is much quieter than Fira or Oia. That's primarily because there's not much in the way of shops, bars and restaurants here -- just primarily lodging. Since it was the restaurant nearest the place we were staying, we thought we would go there out of convenience. Little did we know that we would be served some of the best food of all of the places we dined in greece. The food there was excellent, and I think our favorite dish was the Caprice Salad. They also have great breakfasts and coffee. It's a "basic" restaurant with "basic" prices, but you feel like you're being served 5-star food (not just taste, but even presentation as well). We found ourselves continuing to go back several times.
