We were not told (neither in the confirmation email nor in the bar itself at arrival) that the fee was at least 25 euro/person no matter if we drank/ate for less than this value (so if you order a glass of wine you still need to pay 25 euros). The table was facing the islands and not the sunset. The wine bottle was very low quality (price of 55 euro)! We were not given a table near our friends so we had to split. You can see better sunsets in any other spot free of charge. Nothing went well, definitely not recommended.

You’d think that paying the prices they charge for their drinks, you’d get a decent unobstructed view of the sunset. This is not the case however!

My wife booked us a front row seat for sunset time. There is a minimum spend of €25 per person. Believe me, it won’t be hard to reach that minimum spend as the prices are high.

We had a good seat right at the front on the lower floor. Beautiful view of the inevitable sunset. This was case until a never ending train of wannabe Instagram influencers stood directly in front of us so they could get the same picture taken around 100 times!

The one member of staff they had catering for the lower bar just stood there and watched them. He did try to tell a couple of people to move on but sadly it was an unachievable task due to the number of oncoming “models” just wanting that perfect picture.

If I was to ever return to Oia for sunset, I’d do what I saw a couple do. They bought themselves a couple of €2 cans of cider from the local market and stood there in front of the bar and watched the sunset. I mean, fair play to them. Me and my wife were the ones who were paying €16 for a small G&T and €7 for a 250ml Coke but they were the ones with the better view and most definitely the least stressed.

I wouldn’t recommend this bar to anyone unless you enjoy staring at the back of peoples heads as they gaze lovingly into the sunset.

The place has a nice view especially to enjoy the sunset but cocktails are not good and really expensive (44€ for two bites of cheese and two aperol spritz). Staff is rude they barely speak to you. we have been forced to eat cheese with hands asking with no success 3 times for paper towels! we waited 20’ for our drinks! They run when you ask for the bill indeed. Poor experience in such a great place!!! They treat well only greek people…kinda no-tourists-please place.

Great place to view the sunset in Oia. There was a €25 minimum spend per person, which we were advised about when booking. However having arrived at 7.15 it wasn’t an issue for us, a couple of cocktails and you can soon spend in excess of that. Service was good & quick, Martin (No.1) was extremely attentive (as were the rest of the staff) and we had no issues in getting drinks.

Nice view but honestly do NOT sit here. Same view everywhere else. Overpriced menu and extremely rude staff. Refused to serve us water and said you have to order other items on the menu. Said that water is a starter and you must order something more expensive. Left absolutely fuming so came on here to warn people. Seems like many people have the same problem

Stopped for a drink tonight. The terrace is small and faces the sunset so we arrived at 19.00 just for a drink (not interested in sunset view as had reservation at better place with better view). After looking at the card of drinks I have asked for an iced coffee which was on the card. Waiter said they don’t serve it after 7 pm. Neither mineral water. While I do understand their commercial spirit and desire to make money I still don’t want to be forced to consume unhealthy sugary/alcoholic drinks when I don’t feel like it. I don’t care if they would have charged me 15 euro for whatever but to be forced to costume something I don’t want is too much for a chair on a terrace.

Came here this evening on our one day in Oía - what a major disappointment. Came around half 6 to a lovely view of the sun setting. About 20 mins before sunset (and €60 on four tiny cocktails) entire view was obstructed by tourists who came down for about a million selfies. While I know this isn't the cocktail bars fault as it is a public street, after a two hour wait and pricey drinks I would have expected them to be considerate of their customers and not random passer- bys. When I asked the waiter if there was any way of encouraging those in front of the view to shift even out of paying customers viewpoint, he suggested I go and ask them (great service after €60 on mediocre drinks). He also said I would have had a better view from the high table in the back corner of the bar, where I could see the view over randomers heads (and through their mobiles). Do yourself a favour and buy a pack of Mythos and plonk on a wall somewhere for the sunset, instead of a lengthy wait (30mins+) for an average cocktail and disappointing evening in Sunspirit.

Nice view, tourists fill every street to take pictures of the sunset so this didn't bother us at all but the dreadful music needs to change. We had cover after cover or pops hits slowed down to an unbeatable level and then a whole Adel album sang over and over by Z list singers at such a slow space you could barely recognise them. Painful music choice but nice little bar with a good view.

This was a great place to watch the sunset in Oia. The windmill close by makes a great backdrop against which the sun sets. We didn’t book in advance but reached a bit early and discovered the bar as we we’re exploring Oia. We had no problem finding a great table with a view- although you have to be opportunistic as people leave and request the waiter in advance. The drinks are expensive, but you’re paying for the view and a quiet place to sit and enjoy the sunset. If you want to sit and enjoy the sunset with a drink in your hands, and not step on top of a hundred other people standing on steps, this is your place. The Oia sunset is hyped up, we still did it for the experience- watching the crowd is part of the experience I guess. Tip: The sunset elsewhere in Santorini is equally gorgeous and way less crowded. We went to the blue church in Firostefani the next day and had a better view and no crowds.

This is a nice (perfect) bar to watch the sunset. Maybe the best view in Oia.
The drinks may be a bit more expensive compared to other bars in Oia but he, they don't offer this view.
I would recommend to ask for the corner table at the lower area, you wont have people standing in front of you watching the sunset.
Be aware that they ask a deposit when booking a table and that you need to spend 20-25 euro but it's worth it!
