“Spur of the moment choice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

My wife and I picked this restaurant when walking by it looking for a nice place for a late lunch. The first thing that hits you is the 360 view which is breathtaking! We ordered two salads (Greek for her and Caldera for me), bread, wine and water. All ingredients were fresh and very tasty. The Greek salad could have used less tomatoes and more lettuce (there was none) but the freshness was impressive.

The service was outstanding but we were the only ones on the terrace so would not expect anything else.

Price tag: 40 euros which is a bit pricey but after all a 360 view comes with a price.

We recommend this restaurant for lunch and thank the owner and staff for an incredible experience in Oia!!!

“Sunset spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

Came here on a recommendation from my hotel manager. The dinning area is on a rooftop that is a little cramped but has amazing views of the caldera and perfect for watching the sunset. The waitstaff were prompt and friendly. The food was very flavorful and delicious, especially the fava dip. Great spot in Oia.

“A great place for traditional food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

We were recommended this place and it was great.
Our waiter happily recommended local cuisine and every one he advised was outstanding.
We tried the Fava bean dip, the moussaka (best we have had on the island) and the grilled fish which was very tasty.
Service was nice and they made sure you were enjoying your time.
The gave us complimentry greek donuts which were fab!
A great experience.

“Breathtaking View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

We stumbled upon this restaurant to get out of the midday heat and had no expectations whatsoever. While only intending on a beer we ended up ordering a number of appetizer dishes. The food was average to good but very nicely presented. The service was very slow despite only a few diners in the restaurant but we weren't in a hurry. If you are on holiday with nothing but time, I really can't imagine a nicer place to sit down, have a drink and enjoy the breathtaking view.

“Romantic spot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

Beautiful spot on the edge of the town, overlooking the sea. Lovely food; only complaint was that you were a little squashed in. Worth it for the famous Oia sunsets though!
