“Great food, a little pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

We went here for a sunset dinner. Unfotunately, utility poles mare the sea vista. Food was tasty but dishes are "tapa" sized and we required many dishes to leave content and this added up to a fairly pricey meal.

“Hidden treasure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

It took some time to find this beautiful spot but it was really super! Great view! We had a fantastic white wine (Santorini in a blue bottle) and ordered several small dishes: with chicken, fish, vegan etc. They all tasted like heaven! And if you want some more of these 'tapas' kind of plates, you order again. And again. And share them with each other. A marvelous experience and really different from all other Greek, Italian and
Mediterranean restaurants we have been in the last weeks. A hidden treasure, that's for sure!

We went here for the sunset and it was beautiful. Relaxed and away from the crowds. The tapas and cocktails are also great. Recommend this place if you would like to have a quiet drink k and enjoy the great sunset

Everything about this place was perfect. Their baked feta was to die for, their bruschetta was super yummy...main dishes were also really really good. Loved it so much, wish I could just pop in to have their baked feta (best I've had in Santorini by far). Their is something special about this place, it makes want to go back over & over again, service is excellent & you cannot fault the food, even presentation is beautiful. Try it out, you won't regret it, I t's the only place in Katharos Beach so you can't miss it.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

We only had coffee here, but it was good coffee - 4 Euros a cup - but we knew that we had found a little gem of a place.

Comfortable seating with cushions.

It overlooks Katharos beach, which is lovely and unspoilt.

I would imagine that there is a great vibe there during the evenings, not to mention a fantastic place to watch the sunset.

We would have loved to have gone back to sample the menu, unfortunately we didn't return to Oia the following day.

But if ever I found myself lucky enough to visit Santorini again, then this would be one of the places I would head for.
