“Lovely sunset views - beware of pricing!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

The setting for this restaurant was lovely. The food was nice.

My main issue with the this restaurant was the pricing. We had a very nice and charming waiter who encourgaged us to try a red snapper between two. As most of the dishes were reasonably priced I presumed incorrectly and possibly naively that the price of the fish would not be outragious. Unfortuantely I was wrong and the fish which was just okay ended up costing a fortune and the bulk of the cost of our meal was the fish.

I appreciate that we should have enquired as to the price, and of course I will not be so naive in the future, however, I think the waiter should have mentioned the price taking into account that it was about triple the price of any other main course on the menu!

“Brand new with a great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

Friendly services, nice wine, delicious fish (not cheap but expected) and a great view. Do have a chat with waiters or waitresses there who orginially came from Athenes and fell in love with Santorini. They are very much aware of tripadvisor's impact, though :)

“Good Food and Excellent Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

We had an excellent evening at Mezzo. The waiter was excellent and very friendly. As it was near the end of the season some of the dishes were no longer available but what we did have was great. The pasta with shrimp, tenderloin and arugula was great and so was the stuffed chicken with goat cheese and sundried tomatoes. As we tried to order dessert the only thing they had was the chocolate soufflé which the waiter said was not the greatest right now and instead offered us fresh donuts with honey at no charge. Excellent restaurant overall.

Best meal that we had in Santorini. The fresh whole fish was perfect and the traditional greek dishes were a little different and better than other restaurants.
