Here we had a warm welcome and wonderful food in a traditional and unique restaurant. It is located near the square of Firostefani, walking down towards Fira, overlooking the sea and beautiful sunset. We enjoyed it so much, we went there four times during our one week visit to Santorini. The fish and lamb dishes were fantastic! Thank you so... More

My boyfriend and I ate here on our last night in Santorini. The food was good, the wine was good and the view was beautiful. I had the seafood risotto and my boyfriend had the fish of the day all of which was very fresh and tasty. A lovely last meal, with great service.

We spent our last night in Santorini dining at this delightful restaurant and we were not disappointed. The music set the scene for a wonderful journey of Greek cuisine and our host was fun and interesting. Recommend a visit here. David and Joan

The service was lovely, the food was average but the view is gorgeous. I tried several of their wines, my favorites were the vinsanto and their house white wine. It was a memorable evening in Santorini.

Unfortunately this resteraunt didn't live up to expectations, basically paying for the view, food was not that great, stay away from the steak

Great food. Lovely staff. Just a little slow service. Donkey beer is brilliant. Sit, relax and enjoy. Tip: have mixed grilled meats to share. Very nice indeed

We arrived late and looked for the closest restaurant with good reviews. We had a pleasant night, mainly for the amazing and friendly service but I must admit that compared to other restaurants the level was just average. The starters were good and the main coursas just "normal".

I had dinner in this restaurant. The quality of the food was poor and too expensive. The traditional rice stuffled in grape leaves was not good too much lemon that covered all the flavours.

Recommended by a local, this restaurant did not disappoint. We picked our own whole fish and shared as it was huge. Not the cheapest fish but cooked superbly. The service was great. Lovely view over the Caldera as it is up a few steps.

Thank Alison B
