A great view from the loft here. The entrance is kind of hidden, a spiral stair case leading to the next level, then up another flight of stairs to the deck. Fantastic view to the west (volcano) Steamed mussles and steamed shrimp were our choices, with yellow donkey beer (local) of course.

We went to this restaurant for lunch today and as many others have said, enjoyed the view the restaurant provides.

Unfortunately I found the drink prices are very expensive and definitely incur some type of 'tourist/view tax' (A cappuccino coffee is more expensive than most of the beers?!).

For lunch I enjoyed a traditional greek meatball meal with some mashed potatoes. The portions were ok, but nothing to be raved about.

Ultimately I think I'd enjoy the prices and meal sizes of one of many other restaurants in the area, which feature similar stunning views.

We ate here 3 or 4 times during our one week stay and could not fault the food at all - it was brilliant. The service was second to none - really friendly and it is the best place to view the sunset. Only one draw back - the portions are huge so make sure you are hungry !!

We ordered the tomato fritters which were crispy and delicious, the oil and garlic pasta dish and the lamb. My husband's lamb was tender and very good. My pasta was cooked perfectly al dente and the oil was infused with lots of garlic which made my dish quite tasty. The view was amazing as it is in almost all the restaurants on this island, the service was adequate, nothing amazing. The price was fair enough though a touch on the higher side. Good restaurant in the heart of Oia. Sunset view probably would have been good but we opted to watch the sunset from our private deck back at the hotel.

This was our preferred venue for early evening cocktails, with good food and the best views of the sunset. The cocktail barman (Drachson?) was very friendly and entertained us most nights with his stories and great cocktails. They are all good but the Mojitos really are amazing. The food is also really good and the staff are very friendly. This became our favourite place to go in the evening and we highly recommend it.
