Undoubtedly the best meal of our week long trip to Santorini. We travelled here by ATV and parked at the church for a late lunch at about 4pm. We hadn't booked but managed to get a seat on the terrace under cover (there's also indoor or an open terrace across the road - worth requesting covered terrace when booking). The... More

Delicious food! A friend we made in Santorini recommended this place and we thank him for that, because it's not easy to find. Once you get there though, you will not be disappointed. It has an authentic cuisine, the atmosphere is great and the service is excellent. Totally worth it. I highly recommend it

We had been recommended to come here by our hotel in Oia. We are so happy we ventured here (as it's not in Oia or Fira...the two biggest towns in Santorini). The food was fresh and delicious. We shared fava beans, octopus and meatballs. All were truly delicious.

If you are ever visiting Santorini, this restaurant is a must visit. We were looking for something that felt more home-cooked and not your typical touristy menu and this was it. It's a bit away from everything but well worth the drive. I got the pork with feta sauce and my wife had the lamb...both were excellent!

That's my favorite restaurant at Santorini, the place where I always take my friends and guests . The food is amazing and the service even better. Plenty of options even for me that I am vegan .

Absolutely beautiful place and atmosphere! We are vegetarian and we enjoyed it. I also liked the fact that they gave us complimentary "grapa" at the beginning. Great food and great atmosphere. Little difficult to find but totally worth it when you find it. Be ready for a lovely meal. We came for lunch and stayed almost 2 hours.

We went here after reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor. But we don't understand. there were four of us, and it was probably the worst food and customer service we had during our 2 weeks in Greece. Food was just "OK" at best. Service was slow. There were four of us - and none of us enjoyed it. Wish... More
