“great atmosphere ... but the food and the service are not at the level of the average of the island”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

wine was awful (in both of the color).
All the food came together ... so we were not able to eat hot...
This is not so bad if you come to listen the music and to eat something cold... never order everything in the same time !

It's better to drink beer than wine if you want to enjoy your night.

“Food is excelent!!! Service is awful!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

It is with great sadness that we have left this tavern with some disappointment. We were 4 people having dinner and they have sit us in a table for 2, even if the restaurant was practically empty. When we asked to change the table or at least to add another one to ours, they said it was not possible because a group of musicians would come to perform, and they needed the table for the instruments. After 5 minutes or so, another family of 4 came (2 adults and 2 children) and they have took the table we wanted without any problem, even if they had not any kind of reservation. When we complained about this, they pretended not to understand or speak English and simply turned their back saying: " No no no!!! "
A place that could be really excellent (because the food was really really good), after all is another place who doesn't really care about being nice to the tourists, as they are sure that tomorrow new tourists will come. No to mention that only one waitress was nice; the rest were really rude people.
Its a pitty.

“Good traditional restaurant in Santorini”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

Lovely little restaurant in Megalochori which is a cute town in the middle of the island - we had the sesame coated feta with honey and balsamic, mussels steamed in wine, mamas salad, fava dip and tomato keftedes. Traditional greek food with some Cretan influences. On this night there we were entertained by a small Greek band it was incredibly enjoyable and much nicer than the boring tourist traps in Fira town. Worth the drive, it was only 15 mins from Fira and highly recommended. Move next door to the bar at the Italian restaurant later for cocktails...overall a great experience and I will visit again next year!

“Fun and games.....................”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

Nice restaurant situated in a small square, part of a local settlement, really traditional. The setting is lovely and some nights have live music. The service was OK, but the food all sort of arrived together, however the food was tasty. They had no bottles of wine just jug (only Red & White) , MrD had white and said it was OK , but the Red nearly blow my wig off, Almost fortified ( had weaker Port). The other problem. BIG for Mr D…. the cuddly Andrex puppy and his sidekick Muttley who sit tirelessly by your table as you eat, and apart from other K9 approaches where Muttley showed his ability to defend his patch it was not as cuddly as when they are playing with toilet rolls.
Verdict: better place through the archway
