“Absolutely Positively”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Very charming & outstanding place. We, my mom & myself, were lucky to meet a Scandinavian couple who recommended the restaurant. We spend 2 days in Kamari & planned to try different places but were so much impressed by the cuisine & ambiance of Vassilikos that decided not to risk.
The food was fresh, plates were clean, service was impeccable. Due to the fact that I have to avoid certain ingredients (e.g. onion, garlic), they did their best to meet my requirements, and made a perfect custom order. We had a chance to try national Greek dishes with everything made from scratch. Dishes didn't contain cheap sauces that are normally used to mask pure quality of ingredients.
And the ambiance! Green color is a perfect match for the azure color of the sky, ultramarine color of the sea, and salt&pepper color of the rocky mountain on the background. All this is elegantly "wrapped up" into amazingly pungent smell of basil swirling around. Those who really appreciate the importance of a restaurant's atmosphere will understand what I mean. It is like an after-taste which stays longer than the taste of good food itself. Great combination. Nice job!

“Val&Billy& Ron& Hilary Jones Fabulous food excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We had the fortune of being just round corner from this restaurant so found on second night of our holiday in Kamari and had lunch and evening meals here four times.. The food was superb as was the presentation. Take your camera to photograph the meals. The staff were so friendly and Fortini who's family own the restaurant was delightful. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. When back in Santorini will definitely return

“Delicious and Fantastic Service - one of the best restaurants in Kamari!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We dined at Vassilikos as we were recommended it by our hotel. We were so glad we went. The food and service were both fantastic - it's more fine dining than the other restaurants and tavernas and their food has a twist on traditional greek. The house wine was very good (half a litre) and I had the chicken in Vinsanto sauce (delicious!) and my husband had the mixed souvlaki. The only issue he found with the souvlaki was that there was so much meat, he felt he needed something to help him out - so he asked the waiter for a side order of Tzatziki to go with the dish. Later on the manager came over to ask if everything was OK and when we said how good the food was he said the Tzatziki was on the house! We opted to have desserts which was huge (my broken mille feuille was particularly gigantic!) and they were both very yummy. At the end of our meal the manager asked if we'd like a drink on the house for our honeymoon and we opted for Vinsanto - absolutely lovely meal and great service.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

This restaurant is incredible. It is more fine dining that some of the other restaurants on the strip, and is absolutely delicious and very reasonably priced. Try the halloumi stacked on pittas for starters, it is incredible, in fact everything was that we had there. Recommend trying this place if you are visiting Kamari as this was our favourite restaurant in the resort

Slightly more expensive than the rest of the strip BUT once tried you will understand why. The quality of food and service is that of a fine dining restaurant . Exceptional Restaurant.
