“Great for a hangover”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Amazing location for a restaurant in a canyon by the beach. Tomato fritters were a massive highlight. If I ever get back to Santorini, will definitely hit this place up again.

“Great food, views and music!”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

This place is a hidden treasure! We found this little restaurant sitting on the edge of a cliff overlooking the Aegean far away from the crowds of Oia or Thira... It is pristine white with comfortable chairs and couches. It is owned by a lovely couple the wife is the chef and the husband the bartender. We had shared our plates and ate an amazing pork chop not like any I have had in the states! IT HAD FLAVOR :) And salads with greens, peaches, and a lovely dressing, we also had an avocado guacamole which is very unusual in Greece and it was fantastic!
The views were so romantic I was wishing I was there to enjoy that part of it with but alas I was traveling with friends. Then there was local live music to be enjoyed, jazz and not too loud to have a conversation.
We met the owners who bought us a glass of the locally made Raki and they sat down when things were wrapping up and enjoyed a glass with us! What an incredible experience that I will never forget. I will tell everyone I hear is going to Santorini to visit this little gem!

“Worth the trip!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I don't usually take the time to write reviews but Katharos Lounge is worth writing about. We stumbled upon this wonderful restaurant while wondering down to the beach a few hours before sunset. Because of the welcoming friendly owners and the wonderful atmosphere we stayed for the sunset. The baked feta was amazing, the sunset beautiful. It was nice to be away from the mainstream restaurants and enjoy the views. We will probably go back tomorrow! Highly recommend making the trip.

“My favorite non touristy place in Oia”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

If winds are not strong i strongly recommend going to Katharos, if not for a swim (no shade or sun beds) at least for a drink at Katharos lounge. They have special live music at sunset and on Saturdays i think they have live music until late. They 're even funky-jazz friendly!!! Love it love it!

“Great find, amazing service and food, just a lovely experience!”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Love this place and returned 4 times during a 1 week stay.
Ps. The Katharos salad, lamb main course dishes and bacon burger are unbeatable.
Being on the way down to Katharos Beach it makes for a perfect pre- post- beach lunch stopover. Service was exceptional and the food brilliant. Live music Monday to Friday evenings.
Can't recommend it enough for an experience away from the Oia crowds.
