Description: If you are staying in Perissa or Perivolos on Santorini, check out this outstanding restaurant and bar and the southern end of Perivolos beach. The stylish interior and lovely setting (with the moon rising over the beach in the evenings) give a taste of the amazing food that is served. The food is a bit on the pricey side by Greek standards, but it's worth every penny! There are some Greek favourites like Greek salad or Moussaka, but they all have a delicious and contemporary twist and are lovingly presented. There is also a huge seafood selection as well as some exotic dishes, all of outstanding quality. We loved the tomato risottos and swordfish as well as the warm parmesan bread that was served as a starter. The portions are generous - we would have had more than enough with just a starter. In the evenings, the atmosphere is relaxed and chilled, yet romantic, but you can also have breakfast or lunch on the restaurant's beach loungers or tables on the beach, all in a very stylish setting. A very special place!

A real cracking place. We were recommended Sea Side by reception at our villa hotel - they described it as somewhere all the family could enjoy the beach - children (a safe beach and good food), adults (great food and drinks). For all our visits to the beach we decided to return to Sea Side. We were never disappointed. Truth be told, you will end up spending more than perhaps you would at some of the other beach restaurants - but it will all be worth it. The service is of a high quality and all the waiters and waitresses say hello with a warm smile. The menu is different for Santorini with some great dishes - tuna steak, salmon, are highly recommended. One of the owners Tassos is always on hand looking very relaxed but no doubt overseeing everything remains efficient. Visit and you will not be disappointed. Family of 4, children aged 12 and 10.

“Superb Food & Service & Location”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Our cruise ship arrived for a day on the Greek Island of Santorini. Not one to take any of the ship excursions with 3,000 of my friends, we researched beaches before our arrival and sought out Agios Georgios Beach. We left the ship and walked a bit through the port town to the taxi stand and asked the driver to take us to Agios Georgios Beach. It was about a 20 minuted ride through the arid island. We arrived at the black sand beach with almost no people on the beach and a few small beach clubs dotting the beach. We walked down the beach to the club in front of Sea Side by Notos and spent the morning there. A small group of cruise ship excursion passengers came to the beach and were put in a beach area way down the beach. Typically, they stayed two hours and departed. On our stretch of the beach we enjoyed drinks and snacks, and even some jet skiing nearby (but far enough away not to be noisy to the sunbathers at our beach club). Mostly we beachcombed and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Throughout the day (we stayed the entire day) a handful of locals arrived nearby. Sunbathing was in bathing suits and without.

For lunch, we walked up to the restaurant Sea Side by Notos and genuinely hah the most delicious and enjoyable meal of our entire monthlong trip to Greece and Europe. The service and food here was truly fantastic. We have food allergies in our group and the chef was quite responsive and caring about us. As I write this review and am picturing and smelling our delicious meal in my mind. The Greek salad was excellent, with a light dressing that I had not tasted before and was 100% correct for the salad, which had no lettuce (see photo in this review). We sat for what seemed like a couple of hours with or meal, and when in the area again I would certainly return, this time for a longer stay in this great restaurant, and great area, away from the hustle and bustle and tourist crowds. At the end of the day, the restaurant and beach club called us a taxi and we returned. Our server, visiting the area from her home in Athens (she said), made our visit 5 star.

This was a wonderful find, recommended by the manager at our hotel - the food was fabulous, the service excellent, and the whole beach side setting is perfect! Definitely visit, and plan to spend some time here! Sunbeds, beachside service and that gorgeous boat couch/lounger are perfect! I definitely hope to be back!

“So good we went twice in a row!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

If you want seafood with a twist - and highly excellent service - go to Sea Side by Notos.
If I could wrap this up in a bow and send it home to England - I would! We need a Sea Side back in London.
The decor is lovely, clean, fresh and traditionally quaint. While the prices are VERY affordable for what you get.
Cocktails are incredible (mocktails for pregnant me), the staff will go that extra mile to ensure you are comfortable (that meant a roomy wicker cushioned chair for pregnant me). Their standard bread and dips taramasalata, tomato and delcicious tuna are a must - and are by NO means standard - even the bread is divine!
One night I opted for afforable fish and chips (with a twist), they were truly scrumptious, whilst my partner had baby squid followed by pork and truffle mash.
Honestly - its so sad that more people DON'T know about this incredible restaurant - it is an absolute must - and probably, in fact definitely the best on the island.

Top Perivolos choice. Slow food for those who seek best taste and new taste in food. Excellent ambient, service, choice of drinks, superb wine list, nice menus and delightful food. A bit more expensive than anywhere else in the neighbourhood, but worth every cent, as it is something that you won't forget. Magnificent!
