Description: ASSYRTICO Wine Restaurant cafe, since 2011, offers alternative and innovative suggestions of the Greek Cuisine, using mainly local and selected products from around Greece. The same philosophy inspired the restaurant's wine list. A wide variety of wines from Santorini and the rest of Greece can be explored with the help of the professional staff of the restaurant! In 2016 Assyrtico relocated and moved from the 1st floor to the Garden of the'60s mansion it was based.

Perfect sunset, perfect terrace table, perfect staff - "we have reserved your second table just inside for when it cools off"! An accurately descriptive menu with good ingredient and cooking descriptions - "could we have some more Oregano?" - "Certainly" - and a whole saucer-full brought.
Maybe this is could not hope to be such an intense and gratifying experience for everyone later in the season, when the expectations are shared by the herd of low-rating rankers, but for our 4 it was as good as it gets - anything aspiring to be better anywhere else would have been a multiple of the price.

Great value for very good quality of food! Saganiki was the best on the island!! And wine was amazing. They had proper wine glasses for the types of wine they serve. Private and unique ambiance. Will definitely go back before we leave the island!

Didn't have the typical Greek atmosphere we expected, Gyros was just average - have had much better at street side shops; rest of the dishes we tried were nice though. Not all of the staff on duty that day was warm and pleasant!!
All in all, not really value for money - considering the quality of food and the ambience of the place.

Fantastic views, friendly service and the best saganaki we've ever had! Great wine too!
We made sure we came back to this place before we left Santorini!

Does not have the Greek atmosphere, but does try and serve quality food, felt it lacked finesse for fine dining, and to bare for the greek ambiance, which people look for when they visit, maybe they are catering for locals?
