Restaurant is located in Firostefani square and the view is really nice. Food is good, even though we took mussels and were not really sure if they were properly clean or still had sand. I also took the seabream and it was really good. Staff...More

Good food, expensive menu but the waiter has to improve his manners. We didn't feel welcomed. We were going to have a wonderful dinner, I am sure. But the manners of the waiter was rude.

Forget going to Oia to watch the fabled sunset! Oil is chaos, especially if there are a few cruise ships in port and it is wall to wall tourists (mainly rude Americans and Chinese all vying for the best spot 2 hours before sunset!!). We'd...More
