“good food kind people”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

we hadn't booked but were advised to return in 25m for a table when we were accommodated. The waiter advised that the table may be ready in 15m but so that we weren't kept waiting to come back slightly later. One example of many were I felt that staff tried to make our experience as memorable or enjoyable as possible.
Being vegetarian I tend to have low expectations when outside of eclectic london but Floga made a lovely mushroom risotto and I love the tzatziki or aubergine based dips that go nicely with bread as starters or accompaniments.
Our meal was rounded off with a complimentary shot of Santorini's traditional dessert wine. Overall it was the lack of pretentiousness and the typically smiling, kind, sincere attitude that made this a thoroughly enjoyable meal.

“Great view and meals, disappointing with smokers.”
Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

We had lunch here yesterday and enjoyed the meals and views this restaurant provides. On arrival most of the seats closer to the edge of the balcony were taken, however a couple soon left and the waiter was more than happy to help us move to their table.

The meals were delicious and service was very prompt. Unfortunately smokers are allowed to smoke (as is the custom in many European restaurants) on the balcony, ruining the meal and enjoyment a little.

I would recommend this restaurant to people, provided there are no smokers...

“Overrated”
Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

I remembered I saw "fine dining" somewhere at the restaurant so you should be able to expect the price you will be paying.

Food is average. We ordered Chef's salad, grilled salmon, seafood risotto and for the dessert, chocolate soufflé and mojito panna cotta. Everything cost us more than 80eur.

We think the scallop is overcooked. Salmon is not fantastic. Soufflé is not good. Food is generally not up for that price.

They have very fanciful plating for all the dishes though. So I guess you are mostly paying for the view and the nice display of your food.

They should probably provide napkins since they want to call themselves "fine dining".

Service is fine with friendly staff. Place is quite small though. Overall, I won't recommend this place. If you want a view for dinner, choose somewhere cheaper. You get average tasting food in any case.

I'm going to miss the food there. The appetizer is so good that I had to ordered a second plate. The staff are super friendly too.
