“Great views and O.K. food”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

We just arrived in Santorini this noon and the place we are staying suggested Remvi and Simos as good places to eat which were close. We chose Remvi because it is just down the path. Lunch was good. We had a salad, tomato fritters, and a spicy cheese dip. The fritters were very good. The salad and dip were good. It was enjoyable and the view is actually quite nice. We the were up in the air for dinner and decided to make the easy decision and revisit Remvi. We had a different salad, whole sea bass, and pork in blue cheese sauce. The food was all good - not great but good and good enough. The view of the sunset was excellent. We enjoyed our experiences although would not describe this as fine dining. If I could I would rate this as 3 1/2 stars not 3.

“Worst of Santorini”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

I was trying to have romantic dinner, so Remvi appear to be from location point of view very good. Unfortunately the arrogant waiters, ruined the night!

So go there when no waiters around, otherwise make another choice.

Good luck!

“Excellent !”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Lovely restaurant just off little village square down some stairs. Perched on cliff side. Not decorated the traditional blue and white colour, instead autumal colours but do not let it put you off , the location is amazing. Good ambience and great food. Seafood Pasta, amazing lots of fish and shellfish and tasty sauce. Pork Souvalki delicious with potatoes cooked in olive oil, good house wine but star was the starter ...tsatski !! , one of the best I have tasted anyway, crunchy and tasty with a little hint of garlic. Definitely worth a visit !

“Great view, bring your own food.”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

This was our first night in Santorini. The sun didn't disappoint, but the wait staff and food did. The grilled shrimp was the nastiest seafood ever. Mushy and smelly, and hardly grilled - probably because they couldn't keep it on the grill long enough.

The waiter was arrogant from the beginning too. We're from NYC, and we know how wait staff should behave. This guy was more than cocky and when we alerted him of the 5 nasty shrimps for 18 Euro, 3 of which were untouched, there was no deduction on the bill or any explanation as to why they were serving spoiled food.

Don't waste your time on this restaurant. There are plenty other charming Greek food places including plenty of other fine locales to see the sun set.

“Great views!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

On our first night in The Cliffside Suites, Santorini, my wife, daughter and I were pointed towards the nearby restaurant, Remvi. Reception kindly booked us a table, deeming this essential due to the views and good reputation. As it turned out, Remvi was not over busy, but booking had ensured a good table. Our meal was very good, my veal being exceptional and Kath and Bethan also happy with their choices. The service was quick and attentive. Value - wise Remvi was quite expensive compared to other parts of Greece, though I am sure that visitors not used to Greek dining, would feel that the pricing was fine. Without doubt the quality here was consistently high and the overall experience very pleasant. I would certainly recommend Remvi to anyone staying in Firostefani.
