“Great food, very friendly service”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

We arrived and there were only two tables left so we sat next to the kitchen door, this wasn't a problem, it was interesting to see the preparation of the food, of course if you want a caldera view you should book in advance with ANY restaurant and we had a view at our accommodation so it wasn't an issue. The service was very friendly from the start, the waiting staff / owner all appreciating my attempts at Greek and teaching me new words, taking photos for us and suggesting food choices. We also received complimentary dips / bread to start and grapes to finish. As for the food, the mushroom starter with cheese / peppers was yummy (we shared it) and the lamb shank was beautifully tender and moist - the best I have had anywhere, the chicken souvlaki was very generous and moist and tasty too. Both mains came with yummy potatoes and fresh salad, beautifully presented.
One reviewer has commented that there is no house wine - there is - and at 4 euros for a large glass it is very good value and very drinkable.
Overall I thought the experience was fabulous, it was our first meal in Santorini and would not hesitate to recommend. Thanks for the experience!

“Not friendly”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

We were here for dinner and the person taking our order was not friendly, did not want to answer most of our questions regarding the food. Price is also expensive comparing to other outlets in Santorini with this kind of standard. Food is good, but would not recommend due to the service.

“Best Grilled Octopus”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We recently had dinner at Pirouni and it could not have been better. Despite the island wide electrical issue our meal was superb. Being a party of 8 very hungry New Yorkers, we ordered most appetizers, some with dietary restrictions. One was better than the next so that we added another octopus with balsamic and honey. The main dishes were amazing and my husband voted his lamb the best ever.
The service was impeccable, the owners war kind, helpful and more than accommodating to our crew. After 10 days traveling in Greece, Pirouni gets top prize from this group of foodies. Would recommend to all and can't wait to return.

“Food was nice, but the service level needs to improve.”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

This is the 1st time we visit Santorini and our very 1st dinner here. The food was nice and the staff were not so welcoming. The way they presented was not friendly, although the food is good and nice atmosphere but they need to improve the service level.
