The sign outside said "slow food", but that is certainly an understatement. While assistant waiters were quite attentive, our server was oblivious. It was some 15 min before we even had menus and water, and well over an hour before we even got bread. The couple in the table next to us gave up and left before they were served, telling us that they hoped we'd receive our dinners before breakfast. With such terrific ratings, I expected the experience to improve, but it did not. Worse yet, the food was not at all worth the wait and certainly not worth the price. Presentation is clearly the only focus as none of the dishes were outstanding, and some were not edible at all. The rooster was completely dry and overcooked, my husband's shrimp trio so terrible that we sent it back. We planned this meal weeks in advance to celebrate a 50th birthday. We didn't expect anything free for this, but it sure would have been nice of them to mention it! Terrible service, terrible overpriced food, and their obstructed rooftop garden view is beat by so many excellent restautants in beautiful Oia.

Floga is our favorite restaurant on Santorini, delicious food, fabulous location, and friendly staff (One of which remembered us from last year!) Floga feels almost 'exclusive' as you sit at your table on the terrace overlooking the Caldera. Highly recommended, just don't tell too many people!

Trying to be fancy, but failing big time! I must admit, we had no qualms about entering this restaurant because of its rating here on tripadvisor. However, though the food was almost satisfactory (lamb was a bit tough and greasy - t-bone a bit bland and fatty), we really couldn't get over the terrible, terrible "musac" that was playing non stop. The plastic flowers and electric candle completed the picture... Actually we had a good laugh, so maybe it was worth it after all!

Great view, starters were amazing, shrimps in angel hair and muscles brilliant. Main course not as nice, I had lamb chops but found the sauce too greasy, my husband had a T-bone steak, which was veal, never thought it wouldn't be beef. I think the main courses were down to our choice. All in all would eat there again, however more pricey than the restaurant above it
