We are a couple and we ate here for a lunch. It is a nice place with beautiful view. The food is good and the portions as well. Also the service is good. However I think a bit pricey.

Everyone in our party felt this was best restaurant we have eaten at on our Greece vacation. The food is amazing and extremely reasonably priced. Setting is also beautiful overlooking the mountains and sea. We had the pomegranate and Crete salads, both great.. Also, the Asparagus was outstanding and fried potatoes were great. We had a 500ml pitcher of local... More

.... We're all fabulous. Situated behind a church with the outside terrace facing the hills. One word of advice: book, and book at least 2 days before. Menu has a lot of traditional dishes. You are welcomed with bread and a generous dose of Raki. Menu is great and the usual Santorini favourites are on the wine list. Service also... More

Food was very local Greek cuisine that we wanted. Service was a little slow though. We had a booking but menus were very slow to arrive. Good value for money - large serves.

If you only had time for one meal in santorini, this would be it. Hidden away from crowds of Oia and Fira, this restaurant in Exogonia is a real gem! Prices are reasonable and the food is oh so good! Had the broccoli souffle and fried 4 cheeses for appetisers, had pork loin with peta sauce for the main. Really... More

My wife and I came here upon recommendation of a local who had said it was one of her favorite places for local cuisine. The food was wonderful and it was very nice that it was off the beaten path a bit, meaning it was not in a crowded area such as Oia. Tip: do not follow Google maps if... More

This spot was recommended by our host. It's located in the middle of pyrgos, and you're surrounded by local Greeks. The food is excellent. Comes with aperitif to start. Took the recommended options...asparagus was amazing! Also comes with a cheesecake dessert at the end. It's cute inside but has a nice outdoor area. It's run by young local Greeks who... More

We came here twice as the first time was so lovely. The view of the sunset is great and the food was nice. We especially enjoyed the pork in feta and the pomegranate salad. The first time we booked they were not expecting us and the second time they seated us at a different table to the one we requested.... More
