We happened on the lounge accidentally. What a great view, wonderful service and nice shady breeze. The grilled vegetables were fantastic. The remainder--sandwiches etc good.

Saw the very high ratings on this place, so originally intended to visit for sunset dinner. However on the day we had planned to go it was extremely cloudy so we aborted. Instead we went for lunch a couple of days later - really glad we only went for lunch rather than dinner. Firstly, it's quite a trek by foot from Oia - not for the faint-hearted - and the experience definitely does not warrant the climb back up! The 'approach' to the beach is far from scenic and the views from the restaurant are spoiled by the electricity / telephone cables which go into the sea at this point. The beach itself is very small and typical black volcanic sand - dont come here for the beach alone.

At lunch time, it's basically a snack bar menu with salads. No choice of wine - only the house red, white and Rose by the glass or carafe. Our Greek salads were large, though somewhat bulked up by the unnecessary and not particularly pleasant chunks of bread thrown in. Wine was drinkable. Overall, not worth the effort of getting here. It may miraculously transform for dinners, but you certainly wouldn't want to attempt the walk here in the dark.

Wow where do I begin?
Turned out to be a cool evening with wind and rain.
Everyone huddled inside, it was like a Greek kitchen party!
Our tapas plates were amazing as was the Sangria.
The owner is so hospitable sending over Sangria over to our table on the house.
Wow!
We were at the restaurant for 4 hours gorging ourselves on tapas and drinks and the bill was $71!
Thank you guys for making our stay in Santorini even more memorable!!

We don't usually eat non-Greek food when we're in Santorini, but after several days of it, it was nice to just have a burger and a beer for lunch at Katharos Lounge. It was pretty empty in the daytime, but we could see how the place would be jammin' at night, especially at sunset.
Below Katharos, the beach. It's a steep walk down, but the water is beautiful and on Santorini, you grab a beach moment whenever it presents itself!
A fun stop.
