“High prices for shocking "food"”

Restaurant details
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Myself and my 4 friends decided to choose Louis restaurant as it was a bit out of the way and seemed less of a tourist trap, We couldn't have been more wrong!! I strongly advise that no-one goes here and can only assume that the other reviews on here have been written by the owners or friends of!

The service was awful and it took forever to finally place our order. The food was horrible, our greek salads had mouldy olives in them, The calamari starter came out after about 60 minutes after our order and after the main courses. We ordered some pork gyros (as it was one of the cheaper options on the over-priced menu) which was not gyros at all, more like stewed donky. When we queried this with the manager she said we obviously hadn't tasted real greek food before. I couldn't believe how rude and patronizing she was. It was the worst meal I've ever had in Greece. When our calamari eventually arrived it was like chewing on fried rubber.

We complained as the food was horrible and no way near worth the 130 euro bill, however the owners refused to deduct anything off the bill for the shocking service or food, claiming it was their first complaint in 5 years! I refuse to believe that given that everyone around us was complaining and there were many plates of food left relatively untouched. We needed a vodka afterwards...Avoid like the plague!

this is honest, homecooked greek food - prepared by the wife of louis. the two are a lovely couple who run the place on their own. after many years of owning a big restaurant in one of the beach resorts, louis moved to fira and started something a little bit smaller. don't expect a gourmet kitchen - but do come here for lovely traditional meze, for a very warm welcome, a nice chat - and if you happen to be the last guests, louis might offer you a round (or two) of ouzo and tell you the story of his life. oh, i should mention the view - it's beautiful!

We found Louis Restaurant by chance, searching the cobbled streets of Fira. A restaurant with amazing views, food and friendly service. Whilst the sharing starters and main course were a little more pricey than others it is well worth paying as the quality was beyond expectation. Defiantly try the meze and mixed grill for 2! We will definitely be returning during our 2 week stay on the island.

Had lunch here with friends during our visit. Seafood was very fresh, simple straightforward ingredients nicely cooked. Very good location for nice views of the sea. Their credit card machine was broken so that was a bit annoying but other than that, it was a nice meal.
