“Great food, even better service!”

Any visit to Perissa needs a visit to The Magic Bus!!

We chose to eat here after chatting to Chris and Nicos when first arriving in Perissa, they weren't pushy and actually encouraged us to take a walk down the street to check it out before choosing a restaurant to eat at. We started by having lunch in the restaurant, then hired some sun umbrellas and spent the whole day on the beach because the service impressed us so much. Chris and Nicos were amazing hosts, they made sure we had everything we needed and were incredibly friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed having a chat and hearing their stories, we ended up going back on our last day in Santorini because the food and service was so good. Beautiful setting, yummy food and great value for money.

Thanks Chris and Nicos for an awesome time and keep up the great work guys!!

“good service, good view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Chris saw us waiting/wondering about the water tours to the red beach. We were too late so had lunch and a drink instead. Both Chris and Nicos were excellent hosts. They recognized my cousin's accent as American. Both Chris and Nicos had gone to University in the States. Small world!

“Absolutely love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

While, for me, the magic bus has great food, a good atmosphere and value for money, the customer service is second to none here. Christos and Nicos go out of their way to make you feel relaxed, welcome and happy. Christos gave us info on the island, places to go and just made you feel happy to be there. The mojitos have to be tried (so good) as well as the magic bus burger. I honestly cannot rate the customer service highly enough and if i'm ever in the area again I will definitely be going back. Go and try it for yourself, you won't regret it.

“Amazing amazing amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Chris and his brother Nico were by far the friendliest people we have met in Greece! It is quite pricey but we stay in perissa for 2 days and went there 4 times which says it all really. Nothing is too much trouble, the seating area has a relaxed Moroccan feel, the late night jazz with a cafe del mar theme is perfect in the setting of sparse black cliffs and striking black beach. Do not go to santorini and bypass the magic bus!
