“Best sunset view”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Yes, the food is good. But the 3rd level terrace is the reason to come here. Our group of 4 had rented a car in the morning and drove all the way around the island, stopping at the lighthouse, the red beach, and a black beach, and we ended our day in Oia at this restaurant. We arrived about an hour before dinner time, so we were able to get the 2nd best table to see the sunset (the corner table had been reserved). The sunset glow makes everything magical. The view of the caldera, the water, the cruise ships coming and going, the lighthouse that we had been to earlier on the other point of the crater (also recommended if you have the opportunity - fantastic views of Oia) was amazing. The crowd here seemed very hip. People were well dressed to come here (unfortunately, we weren't - we were sandy and dusty from our day), and the waiters are good looking young men in tight jeans! FYI, if you have a car, you need to park on the outskirts of Oia, and walk in. There was plenty of parking when we got there.

“Pleasant dinner and delighful sunset view”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

We enjoyed a pleasant dinner here, with the view from our table on the level three rooftop terrace including both the caldera in one direction and setting sun over the sea in another direction. I can't recall what dishes we ordered but know that we had a small and simple main course each and carafe of house wine; I've got the receipt for €26.00, making it a very reasonably priced meal with a view that was worth twice that.

“Cake to die for - and the view is great too!!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

We were on a cruise ship shore visit and travelled to Oia by boat, from the base of the cable car. The ticket included a bus back to Thira. Oia is beautiful, although the crowds do spoil it somewhat. We visited the Strogoli Restaurant for a coffee and ended up ordering cakes and sandwiches. The food was delicious and portion sizes were large, so if you are peckish share an order. The Strogoli is on the left hand side of the main pathway thru the village,heading north. The steps up are quite steep, but the outdoor terrace overlooking the sea, gives fantastic views along the coastline. Would love to go back for dinner sometime.

“Good food, lovely views”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

My partner and I visited this restaurant twice during our stay in Santorini, as the food was really delicious - would recommend the arabia sausage and baked aubergine starter, and the stuffed squid main course.

“NIce view and service but overpriced wine!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

We stopped here as it was the first restaurant we saw when we came into Oia. Although the views were great (it is hard to get a restaurant in Oia without good views!) and the food was good but about what you'd expect from most restaurants in Oia, what tipped my review to average was the prices. Namely for local wine - we found it was twice as much as most other places at 5EUR / glass. Although the service was nice, I didn't see anything which justified the mark-up. To be fair, most of the food dishes seemed to be comparable in price to other restaurants we had seen. There are too many other
