“Nothing Special - very mediocre!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

I came here based off of everyone's positive reviews and was very disappointed. We got the chef's special (usually a bad idea in the states but I hoped it would be better) and it was just 5 very generic fish - of various freshness quality. Salmon and squid good, tuna tasted old, hamachi was tiny, and grouper was blehhhhh. The beef on the lava rock was just bland meat with teriyaki sauce - you could tell the beef wasn't the highest quality and I've had much better at the chain Gyu Kaku. Given all that blandness, the food was heavily overpriced too! We left hungry and ate some more elsewhere in Santorini.

I love sushi (frequent Californian sushi eater) and wouldn't even consider myself an expert but there was nothing special about this Sushi joint. I had to rate lower so fellow foodies can beware - it's overrated by people who probably grew up eating convenience store sushi or something.

The only winning point was that the staff was super friendly and cute cats run around.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

After eating Greek food for a week, needed a familiar break. However, if we had any more time left to spend in Santorini, probably would have spent it eating at Ginger. Delicious food, in a romantic atmosphere with friendly service. Unique dishes like eggplant tempura sushi and beef that comes cooking on volcano rocks! If you are in Santorini, you must eat at Ginger, you will not regret it!

“Really tasty and fresh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

Our hotel was near this restaurant and we'd walked past it a couple of times. It was really pretty but I have to admit I kept thinking 'Sushi in Greece, I'm not so sure'.

I love Sushi but I always stick to local foods when travelling. However, I could not resist any more and we decided to go in. I am sooooo glad I did. Everything was incredibly tasty and very fresh.

I ordered way too much but ate it all anyway, too good to waste. My partner doesn't really like fish so ordered a chicken dish that he thoroughly enjoyed and ended up helping me out with my full platter and now loves sushi!

The atmosphere was really romantic. The staff were really sweet and we ended up with some free drinks!
