Great place to try out some Greek cuisine. The starters were great and we also tried some fresh fish and lambchops. Service was great too. The ending was an amazing dessertplatter,made to share by 4. Definatly a place to try out!

One of the highest restaurant on the highland, but certainly the highest traditional one, with a spectacular view on the caldera. From the terrace you can see Oia, Firostefani, Imerovigli, ..., perfect to watch the sunset, the food is excellent at a very reasonable price, and the staff is so gentle!!!

We ate here our first night in Santorini, it's only minutes away from our suite in Firostefani Aura Suites. It was very good Greek food , service, full bar, and amazing view of the sunset.

First place we ate when we arrived in Santorini as our hotel was just down a little bit, was average at best, again like Santorini staff and service was superb. Felt the grub lacked a bit of taste and home cooking flavours which most others offer. Would return for another try tho

We had lunch and then a dinner here.. both were ok but not amazing and were costly. You are paying for the view which is stunning.

We stumbled upon this restaurant whilst searching for somewhere to eat one evening. When we stopped and looked at the menu outside the waiter simply stood at the stop of the stairs, smiled and said "good evening". There was no urgency to get us inside as you find with some places which was one of the main reasons we decided... More

We just stopped here for afternoon drinks whilst out for a dander. Staff were v friendly and the beers weren't too expensive like in many other restaurants in Santorini. We had a look at the dinner menu and it looked good too. View from the rooftop terrace was unreal!
