It was a lovely Tuesday evening in santorini and my girlfriend and I stumbled upon this magnificent looking restaurent! She immediately grabbed my hand and told me that the gravitational pull of the beauty is pulling her in! We then decided to eat there -.-! Well at first our waiter was very friendly and kind the blue wine was cool however! My girlfriend and I decided to split a red snapper portion for two for 30 euros! After a treacherous 45 minute wait we received a meatless bone fish that tasted like burnt charcoal it came with a 1/8 cup of rice and a single piece of: broccoli, ONE Carrot (which my girlfriend and I fought over) and one green bean! I was appalled by my 30 euro bone fish! So I did what any North American would do; I told the manager it was not normal I’m paying 30 euros for a piece of bone and a couple of Vegetables! She responded with we have cultural differences and you guys eat more! I asked for two other dishes because the fish was ridiculous! My girlfriend decided to order the beautifully described muscles for 12 euros and I decided to get the Greek traditional souvlaki plate! AFTER A 45 minute wait (the resto wasn’t overly full) we got served 14 muscles and hairy chicken! Now this was quite unacceptable! We left this restaurant after 3 hours searching for the closest gyro place! This restaurent is beautiful from far but FAR FROM Beautiful!

Unless I saw the pictures posted on Trip Advisor I would not have discovered this little gem. Right in the middle of Fira but you will feel like you are in a garden. The ambiance is beautiful and the food is good. The service was very good. I highly recommend this place. The indoor seating has this scent where you walked into a spa. Check it out for your self. It felt magical here

Happened to walk past this restaurant while exploring Fira. Ended up resting up here for at least an hour and didn’t bother going anywhere else. The food was incredible and the atmosphere was so chilled and relaxing. Excellent service from the staff as well. Would definitely recommend this place any time of the day.
