“A gem for fresh seafood”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Our entrees were simple and exquisite. We had puréed fava beans served warm with a swirl of olive oil, a few capers and caper leaves; grilled feta which was very light; and grilled sardines stuffed with onion and parsley, all washed down with a Sigalas Santorini white wine. We inspected the fish on offer and choose our fish for grilling - Barracuda, an intense flavoured fish, and Parrot fish, a sweet fish. As a side, we had the plate of Greek greens (a bit like spinach) but unlike the same dish served in most Greek tavernas the taste of this dish was delicious. The grilled fish was fabulous. Parrot fish, our waiter told us, is the fish of the fishermen. The food for all the tables was served on large trays carried on the palm of the waiter's hand while the waiter carried an extra dish in his other hand. Trays could be loaded with six large plates of food. An amazing sight. The waiters and service was relaxed and friendly. With the panorama of the Aegean from this open terraced restaurant set high above the picturesque port, this was a memorable lunch and a delightful afternoon.

“The best sea food on the island”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Wow!
So classic greek and yet very local and not touristy. Local people come here for lunch and dinner and even have larger family arrangements here.
It is the most tasty sea food I have had for ages. It is straight from the local fishermen in the harbour and to the plate.
Relaxed atmosphere, nice view over the harbour.
It's a bit out of the way, but well worth the trip.

“very good fresh fish”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

A nice local taverna, over a cozy port. We choose it because it had very good comments on tripadvisor. I try here a very good and vresh white tuna & local salads.

The food was very good, but you can try similar food with better service at Afros - Perivolos.

“Amazing views great food”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

We ate at this restaurant twice during our stay and it was quite impressive. The seafood is amazing and the service is top notch. The views from the table of the city and the fishermen were just amazing. We loved the whole ambiance of the place. At night it was so pleasant and the food was honestly some of the best we had in Greece. Overall the restaurant is unpretentious, serves generous portions of delicious food. The service is great and it is worth the price you pay. Highly recommended.

“One of my favorite meals on Santorini”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Everything was outstanding here... the shrimp, the fish, etc... all delicious. I would venture to say that the fish here was the best fish I had during my summer vacation which also included Crete, Paros and two weeks in Sicily. The setting is gorgeous... you are on the side of the road on the edge of a hill overlooking the sea and a marina. The area is shaded and there is a nice breeze from the ocean, so heat was not an issue at all. It is not a busy road, so vehicular traffic is at a minimum.

If this place was closer to our hotel, we would have eaten here daily. My only issue was the service... I felt I had to seek them out a bit too much, but a minor shortcoming for sure. Very affordable as well!
