“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2014 via mobile

Apiron provides the backdrop for a special Santorini evening of fine dining, with a stunning view of the caldera. We requested a 7:30 dinner reservation and was advised that they would only accept a 7:00pm booking and we would need to complete our dinner by 9:00pm. We arrived at 7:00 and had the restaurant to ourselves until the next guests arrived at 8:00, we were advised that we could keep the table past 9:00 if we wished.

We began our dinner with their signature eggplant dip, which was made table side. Eggplant was smokey with great flavored. We also ordered the calamari with beet chips. The calamari was nicely cooked though not as finely seasoned as the eggplant. For mains we had the sea bass and swordfish. The swordfish was tasty though a bit over done, and to my palate tasted as though it was previously frozen. The sea bass was the better of the two mains in a cream sauce.

Service was friendly and attentive without being over bearing.

Overall enjoyable though except for the eggplant the food was good but not special. Great atmosphere!

“Excellent meal at sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2014

We decided to try Aprion after seeing it on our morning walk and were so glad we did! The cuisine was excellent. I had the fish and my husband had the steak, both were excellent and nicely presented. A great place to enjoy the amazing sunset with a great meal and off the main drag but easy to access.

“The best restaurant in Santorini by a huge margin. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2014 via mobile

Myself and my now wife (still sounds strange!) chose Apiron for our wedding celebrations in August due to the great reviews it had received on Tripadvisor. Although I've been to Santorini many times I hadn't eaten in Apiron so choosing it to host 40 of our close friends was a huge risk, but one that thankfully paid off in spades. George, the owner is a true gentleman and could not possibly have been more helpful. We gave our guests the choice of goat, lobster, seabass and beef fillet as main courses. The feedback was unanimously extremely positive. With many of our guests telling us it was the best meal they had ever had! I had the goat and it was a revelation, bursting with flavour with a melt in the mouth texture. The only thing that exceeded the food was the service, the staff were incredibly accommodating and attentive, and given the overall quality of the experience, the final bill was extremely reasonable, far less than we would have paid in many restaurants in Santorini of lower quality.
Do yourself a favour and book a meal there, drink from their fantastic wine menu eat fabulous food, and watch the sunset, you won't regret it.

“Wedding of a lifetime ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2014 via mobile

We had our wedding here on the 26th of August. From the moment we met George and his staff we knew we had chosen the right location. They helped us every step of the way; from menu selection to wine tasting. On the day of the wedding they shut down the restaurant just for us. Had so many staff on hand to make sure everyone had a fabulous experience. They were incredibly attentive for the whole night. Glasses were topped up constantly. Their attention to detail was simply perfection. We were so full after the first two courses we had to slow the meal down, which was no problem for them whatsoever. The food itself was divine, having eaten in a few Michelin star restaurants I would say it was 10 times better. They couldn't do enough for us. We came back again for dinner a few days later and were treated like royalty, we'll be back again every year. Thanks so much for everything.
