Tolis was our server. The service was impeccable as was the food. The explanation of the wines accompanying the courses and the wines themselves were superb. The sunset was on par with the food and wine and the whole experience was spectacular. We having been...trying to reach this restaurant since the beginning of the pandemic and tonight it became a dream.More

The view and service was great! However the food, although nice to look at, was underwhelming and very over priced. For 150 euro dining experience I was very unhappy with the food and was expecting more from a restaurant with such good reviews.

This was the best dinner we've had so far in Santorini. My husband booked this place as a surprise treat for my birthday week - and it surpassed all our expectations. I generally eat plant based and was so pleased to see some plant based...options on the menu “the origins menu” My husband had the Heritage menu - which was so good. Although my Menu was great, the heritage menu was incredible! I had serious food envy and OMG the Moussaka just WOW. The staff as so attentive and lovely! shout out one of the servers of the night DANIEL, such a lovely and friendly soul ! and an Incredibly talented mixologist, ask Daniel about “papa rousa”. TIP: if having the lobster linguine - make sure to ask for the Athenian cocktail - it pairs really well. The sunset and view from the terrace is just wonderful and completely uninterrupted. Honestly this place is great - we would do it again, but unfortunately we very have limited time in Santorini.More

Absolutely the best restaurant and service. The view is absolutely magical! We went there and asked for a good table which they fixed for us very quickly. We were looked after in the best way, we have never experienced better service. We had Daniel as...well as other waitresses who came and asked if we needed anything. One of the starters included in my main course was good but not my preference as I am a very picky eater. Even then a very nice waitress woman from Albania came who noticed that I didn't eat that starter and said you can choose something else but we said there was nothing wrong with the starter but the woman said you have to take something else from the menu that you like. Even the manager was super nice who came over and asked from time to time if everything was fine. They finished with a nice gift for me. Greetings/ OrjamaMore

You want to like this restaurant because of the friendly staff..but it was a big waste of money! They are trying to be something they are not. Beautifully plated bland food. We paid $135 per person for a meal that I would have paid no...more than $50 for. The view is amazing…but a hard to find restaurant with phones that do not work. I feel like we wasted one of our limited nights in Santorini.More

We were on our hike to Oia and saw the advertisement for Athenian House and were really excited. We made a reservation for that evening and were expecting authentic Greek food in a fine dining experience. Unfortunately, I think we had too high of expectations...because there was not a single dish that my friends and I really enjoyed. The bread was probably the best part, but the codfish tempura and seafood appetizers were odd. Everything was cooked fine, but nothing was particularly tasty. The main seafood pasta dish was weird. Based on the description, I thought we would get a fresh seafood pasta dish, but instead, it was a stack of seafood stuffing and some pasta with seaweed underneath and only 1 shrimp. Even the famous baklava was disappointing as it didn't even seem remotely like baklava. With all that aside, I must say the service was excellent and everyone kept checking in to make sure we had a good experience. Also, Daniel the bartender was the best part and gave us some of the best drinks I have had that were extremely refreshing.More

A truly amazing experience! The view of the sunset from the Athenian House is absolutely spectacular. The service was superb and staff kept coming out with more and more free food and drinks as the night went on. The manager made a point to talk...to us about our experience and explain the dishes. The waiter Daniel was especially fun and helpful and kept bringing out different drinks for us on the house. Would definitely recommend!More

What could I really say about this place honestly. The atmosphere is far beyond amazing and the combination with the breathtaking view marked this place for us as the best to go in Santorini. The food was delicious!! Not to mention how detail’ed the description...of every dish was! But more than that is the fact that you could actually taste every single detail you heard just before! Everything was fresh and cooked just how they should be!The best meal we had in Santorini so far! In addition, I couldn’t forget but saying how mesmerising the taste of their drinks was.It really caught me in surprise the fact that after every single dish we had it was accompanied by the most appropriate wine which completed and skyrocketed the taste!! The service was great and everyone was so kind and willing to help you with anything you would really need. The music was also delightful, really calm and a perfect company for our meal. Last but not least when was our time to pay they gave us a little gift which was so cute and kind by them. Loved it. Overall our experience was magnificent in every way you can look at it. 101% I would visit again and I suggest you to visit it as well! P.S.: The best sunset was in The Athenian House!More

Very nice place with stunning view of the sunset. The food was great as well. The manager greeting us was not pleasant, but the rest of the staff was nice. We were recommended to take the wine tasting menu as it was well suited with...the food. BUT, all three glasses were served at the same time so not only was glass two and three warm when you got to these, the staff could not tell us which to drink when and to what dishes. So stay away from the wine tasting menu and order a bottle. Food was as mentioned very good though and a nice location.More

The view is outstanding but they charge you 5 star money for 1.5 star food. They try to fool you with great presentations but its the worse food ive had in Greece so far. Wish I knew better

I was so excited to experience this very high-end restaurant with unique food and presentation.. Although it is very pricey for Greece it was a special opportunity to take in views and treat ourselves to a lovely evening. For me and 2 other family members...the food was presented in a very upscale gourmet way but the taste was not edible . From the the appetizers to the main course of pasta each was presented nicely but tasted well below expectations.. The starter to me was inedible. Further insult we asked the restaurant to organize a ride back to our hotel. About 20 minutes away.They told us to walk 10 minutes to the square and a white van will take us back. On arrival I called the restaurant letting them know there’s no white van and they told us they would call us back which they never did ! We we’re very lucky to meet a lovely restaurant owner who helped us get back to our hotel. If you want to be ripped off and have terrible food and on top of it I have a restaurant with the audacity to not follow through to order you a taxi then you may like it Totally disappointedMore
