His food is evolutionary and he always finds numerous ways to explore flavors and ingredients so as to create exciting, highly original, dishes.

“Culinary experience”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

It was out 3rd visit over the last couple summers. It never fails to amaze us. We took the tasting menu prepared to celebrate 25 yrs and all I can say is that it was a culinary experience.

“Very nice restaurant, but slightly below expectations fortis name”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

It was a very nice restaurant, with excellent service (we were not left without water or wine in our glasses not even for a second), but it was below my expectations, considering that this is a restaurant awarded from the Greek dining awards. Some plates were very good, some nothing special. Still it is worth to taste as the chef makes some unique combinations

“Terrific View and Great Tastes”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Choiciest disches presented with great taste. Loved the decor of hotel. The welcome from staff guest was of highest order and when we felt cold on terrace they even provided blankets.

It is a classy very selective hotel for high class dining. Limited Menu High price. Not recommended for daily food.

Must in SANTORINI if you enjoy experimenting in your food and if presentation plays an important role along with taste in your dishes and not quantity!!

“Nice place”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

Excellent view, perfect setting and very friendly staff. Some of the plates were amazing, like the burgers or the soup. Some others were a bit indifferent like the risotto and the rib eye... Not impressed in general

“Not as expected”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

I made reservations weeks in advance to make sure we had a spot there to celebrate my birthday with my boyfriend. When we arrived, we were treated very well. Everything service wise was perfect. But when we got the food we ordered, it was somehow dissapointing. Very weird combinations that didn't all work very well. Seems like they try and really want to be gastronomical and special but somehow just can't deliver.
They did offer me a candle and stuff on my dessert so as an example of service. But I just didn't enjoy it the way I expected I would.
