“Very nice food, great location....”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

My partner and I ate here for dinner during our trip to Santorini in early Oct 2012. We booked a table in advance and had a lovely table by the window.

I will start by saying on the the strange things about this place was one of the waiters was Australian. Now I am and Aussie but to be served by any Aussie, in greece just felt a little strange. However he was really very good and gave us some great recommendations.

We had some house wine, very nice, and the mains were fresh sea bream and a lamb stifardo (think that is how you spell it). Lamb in a tomato sauce, with potatoes and onions and the bream was simply pan fried. Both dishes were really very nice with the Lamb being one of the highlights of the trip in terms of flavour....

We were surprised with a complementary desert as it was a celebration for us which was a really nice touch.

All in all, while not a complete highlight of the trip the food was very good, the service was very professional, the wine nice and the location great. We would certainly go back for a meal when visiting Santorini again....

“Good food.”

Located opposite our hotel - Allure Suites. Good food, but I probably expected more.. May be slightly overpriced, but enjoyed nonetheless!

Best view in Firostefani, and run by an Aussie! Food was a bit more pricey than the average, but definitely worth it, went there 3 times

“Great food”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

We loved sitting on the terrace overlooking the caldera while eating great food and drinking a glass of Santorini wine. The staff was very friendly, the service was quick, and the food was delicious. We ate a late lunch here every day of our stay in Santorini and especially enjoyed chatting with Demetri. It is a friendly place in which the customers shared stories and tips. The lamb dishes were outstanding as was the white wine.
