Snobbish, pretentious, extremely over-priced
Appetizers were smaller-than-bite-size. The octopus was over-seasoned. Main entry was bite-size. The sauces were applied as artistic pretty brush strokes or drops. But there were too little to mix in the main ingredient. They change all the plates and silverware for you after each dish, which is no more than a bit and took just a second to eat. So it was constant hectic change of plates and silverware and you couldn’t have a conversation. After 3 courses we were still hungry, so we went to another restaurant to start over our dinner.

All other restaurants, pricy or moderate and cafes we eat in Oia and other Greek islands have outstanding foods, especially octopus. 1800 has dishes that are very pretty to look at, but do not taste any better than a café. You are paying at lease 10 times more here. Besides several seat on the second floor near the street, your view is only the sky, not even a corner of the sea. In many other Oia restaurants you’d have an unforgettable sea view.

Amazing dinner upon arrival in Santorini. You can't fail to be seduced by the 19th century house with its original furniture, spectacular Oia sunset and its magnificent roof terrace. Food very was fine dining of Greek inspiration. Have the octopus salad it is magnificent. Service was very friendly and efficient. The restaurant also gave us a free dessert from the menu to try, in addition to amuse bouches and vinsanto (some sort of port) at the end. Highly recommended for a romantic dinner.

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.

A real upper class experience. Have the croaker if they have it. Yes pricy, but a very far cry from anything typical in greece. Outdoor beaty and views. Would definitely return.
