“Absolutely delightful”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

We first found this place when we were walking around fira town. It immediately caught my eye as a place that looked really warm and inviting but it wasnt until the following night that I got to try it.

When we got there for dinner, the place wasn't as packed as I hoped it would be but I decided to give it a shot anyway. we ordered and hoped for the best. The food took a while to come out despite only a few tables. I took this as a good sign that the food was being freshly cooked. And the wait was absolutely worth it. My seafood risotto was amazing and packed with fresh seafood ingredients.

We also ordered the penne with shrimp and chicken, and althought it was tasty, the risotto still trumps it. I read that the moussaka was fabulous but we were too full to try it.

Overall, this place came through in terms of the food, ambience and service. The waitress was really friendly and helpful. There is free wifi as well. Both mains with a bottle of water was 34 euros which seemed fairly reasonable. Definitely give this place a try. It truly is a hidden gem.

“Amazing food”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

We had just been on the volcano trip without breakfast and were starving. We passed by a lot of places in Fira but when we saw Parathiri we just went in and sat down. It looks a cut above from the outside, and is modern, clean and interesting on the inside.

We ordered salads to start and the presentation on both of them was superb. Large plates, perfect flavours. The for her main my wife had fried mushrooms and fava, which we didn't know but is pureed yellow peas, but was amazing. LIke tarka Dhal without the garlic. The mushrooms were fried and seasoned to perfection too. My volcano pizza was thin and crispy but with a moist base just as I like it, with spicy meat on the top. You got the feeling whatever you were given would be perfect and unique and full of flavour. Excellent service too, plus a free homemade liqueur to finish, a perfect meal, by far the best we had on our trip.

“Delicious Pizza!”
Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

We really loved the pizza that was served here. Most importantly, we loved the hospitality. They serve you with the warmth and love of Santorinian.

“Serendipity”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We were wandering around Fira and stumbled onto this place. My husband who is a pizza freak says, "Best pizza I ever had" and we didn't expect it in Greece. I loved the spinach pie I had and wished we had more time to try other items. Thanks for the great service too.

“Surprising”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We ate here as we couldn't get into the restaurant of our choice. They weren't too busy which worried us initially as the restaurant we want to go to was packed so assumed we were going to have a substandard meal. Wrong.

I asked what they recommended and the head waiter didn't take a breath saying Moussaka. He was right it took your breath away. Delicious. The staff were very attentive and friendly but not in your face.
