This restaurant is situated on the main road running through Perissa and we were happily working our way through the ones on the sea front but decided to give this a try.
It did not disappoint. for less than 18 euros we had the mixed grill for two, salad, Tsatsiki, chips AND a carafe of wine.
The salad and wine came quickly but the mains took around 40 mins on a quiet night?? puzzled but not enough to stop us going back as it was excellent, the second time , the mains took nearly an hour, Again the food was faultless, tender pork, chops etc, all very well cooked, delicious, the wine was more than palatable too, only thing is of course the slow service, no idea why as it was only moderatly busy both times but simply cannot fault the food.
Happy to return and would include on our return visit as great value.

We had a long day at a tour and dined late as my fiancé wanted spagetti while I wanted a traditional chicken souvlaki. We were surprised with the size of the meals especially after having tried so many Italian and Greek meals, this was anazing and got free watermelon and liquere shots at the end!

Very surprised to see this restaurant so low. You cannot leave Santorini without going to this restaurant and trying the fish platter. At only around 22euros you get the best amount of fish for two people you can imagine, as well as 0.5l of wine, large potion of chips and wine. The even throw in a free spirit at the end. A truly outstanding platter.

Went to this restaurant quite a few times during our fortnights holiday. Mainly down to the fact they were offering 'Lamb in the oven' special for 5 euros. Yes, 5 euros. A real bargain and absolutely delicious and served with yummy chunky potato chips. Lovely staff and excellent service. Situated on the main road in Perissa.
