The restaurant provides good food and good service, only having too many people walking around the path in front of us while watching sunset. Even with going to the toilet, we had to clear 4 to 5 people who stood there watching sunset.

our hotel recommended this place for sunset views and they have helped to book a front row table 1 week in advance.

it is indeed the place with the best sunset view (you will see the crowds gathering at the castle overlooking). but it does get very busy with pple clogging up the stairs in front of the restaurant. so if u r lookin for a quiet dinner spot...it wont be the right choice.
we had: rocket lettuce salad which was so so.
grilled shrimp pasta was nicely done - flavourful pasta and juicy shrimps.
grilled pork chops were juicy..served with jacket potatoes. spent abt 55euros for the above.
again..pple come here for the views! it helps that the food was gd (but not excellent - if u want excellent food..check out metaxi mas or aktaion :)) I have seen other restaurants in oia with this kind of pricing without direct sunset view. so don't think this restaurant is a tourist rip off at all.
however service was jus so-so. I had a fly drop into my glass of water while dining and I have asked the waiter to change it. he commented "still alive huh..haha". well..to me..its not very funny. probably I can't appreciate the humour. he never returned with a new glass until I reminded him like 15min later.  

jus a tip if on a budget...pack yr own drink/sandwich and grab a seat at the stairwell below kastro maybe an hour before sunset time to enjoy the view.

This is a perfect spot to watch the sunset. You will need to book early. I booked before we left the US by email and they were very responsive. The restaurant was completely booked that night and people kept trying to get in. The food was excellent and the service was great. It's windy on the terrace so make sure you bring a sweater but otherwise it's a perfect spot!

If you have booked to eat, you will get the best table to see the sunset. No doubt. The food is good too.

We had just walked off the cable car and saw this restaurant that sits right on the side of the cliff and decided to eat lunch before strolling through Oia. The view was amazing but so was the food. Service was a little slow to start but well worth the wait. The Greek Salad for two was amazing as was the Gyros and Pork Souvlaki. We can't stop talking about it - haven't found anything close to the taste in Atlanta.
