This place is BEAUTIFUL. We were greeted by the owner when we arrived, very friendly and gave us a table right on the water. The seafood was the best I have EVER had, you could tell it was fresh. All seafood is caught locally. If...you’re looking for a romantic delicious meal come here, you won’t regret it. Also very affordable.More

Amazing views and a perfect spot for our first night of our holiday. Got stung by the fish pricing though….ordered fresh fish of the day for one, they charged by the kilo and brought enough fish to feed a large family. Shame to waste such...great fish and also very expensive for us. Shame as in every other way it was such a lovely restaurantMore

Ocean view, very great service, awesome food. Our server - Babis - was extremely friendly and patient with our order. He offered to show us the fresh catch of the day and explained the cooking method for the fish. After the meal, we were able...to meet the chef - Dimitris - who was very nice as well. Highly highly recommended.More

This is a very special dining experience. The setting on the water with sailboats and yachts and catamarans and kayaks passing in the distance is magical . The service is perfect, polite and informative, addressing your needs without being overbearing. The food itself is something...you will never forget. We had a very nice Greek white wine followed by sumptuous mussels and sea bass filet with salad. It could not have been better. For dessert we shared baklava and chocolate mousse and were treated to a complimentary dessert wine. We received complimentary pick up service from our hotel and the driver exchanged nice stories from his time in America . This was a meal we will never forget and an experience to cherish forever.More

I'm so excited about this place that I'm posting the review real time. Meaning we've only received our apps, wich was very good! As the pics show, you can sit on a peer right above the water. Pretty magical! Update coming after the meal.

This is one of those places that ‘if you know, you know’. It’s a hidden gem you’re very unlikely to find unless a local tells you about it and that’s what happened to us back in 2015. Whilst the island itself has since become 10x...more popular with travelers, it’s become more difficult to get an instantaneous booking for dinner in the likes of Fira or Oia, with a view. However this place, on the south of the island in Akratori is secluded and just perfect. The fresh fish was beautiful as too was the side salad and veg. If you’re staying nearby such as Akratori then Yannis the owner will personally come to collect you, and drop you back to your villa/hotel. That’s service!! Just give them a call beforehand. It’s our must re-visit place whenever we come back to Santorini.More

We loved this place. The seafood was fresh. On our first visit my daughter had the catch of the day and I had the salmon. Both dishes were excellent. The night before we left, we visited again and my daughter has the seafood spaghettis and...I had a pork dish with rice. The food was really good.More

A nice restaurant by the sea after a tiresome Akritori visit. The fresh fish and local cuisine are amazing and the suggestions from the waiter were spot on.

Our first night in the Akrotiri area we had a wonderful meal at Asterias. The view from the pier was lovely and the fresh seafood dishes were delicious. We were even treated to complimentary after-dinner liquers. A special night!
