The restaurant terrace has a home feeling with a nice garden and decor. Simple local food options and friendly staff. The seating is somehow not too spacious and the outside area may be very warm during summer nights.

A beautiful family run restaurant full of Greek charm. Tucked away from the busy main stretch of Oia. The chef actually comes and explains the dishes and talks you through the ingredients. The food is cooked to order so is fresh and delicious. His knowledge of local wines is excellent. We will go back again before we leave santorini.

Went into this little Taverna based on the great vibe with grapevines growing through the ceiling. Although it's off the main drag without harbour/sunset views this prob helps to ensure the restaurant maintains its charm.

We are definitely coming back here next visit! The selection of foods was awesome, from fresh fish, vegan mezes and the homemade desserts.

The restaurant is located in a small and very picturesque back street in Oia in an old house with a lovely little courtyard. Food is authentic Greek and delicious. Service is absolutely outstanding, the best we have had in Santorini. A must in Oia!
