Great place in the middle of the sea and before discovering the redness of the Red Beach. Very calm unlike the beach which is full of tourists. Very warm welcome with delicious food and talks.

There are places where you feel immediately home, and where you have the opportunity to enjoy quality and beauty. At Nimeli the food is fresh and prepared with passion, the service is perfect and the view .... well, look at the pictures!

Had a delightful afternoon meal here about 2 weeks ago. Liked the idea of sitting with the waves lapping my feet, though we opted to keep our feet dry that day. Fish dishes particularly good, puddings were wonderful. Recommend.

This was certainly our best restaurant visit in Santorini! Sadly they're now closed for the season. We had the restaurant to ourselves and it really was an experience. From the candles leading you down the stairs to the unique location and view. It's not every day you eat at a restaurant where you can hear the waves almost lapping at... More

Although initially hard to find, this place is really a great restaruant right on the seafront. All our menu choices were excellent and even the house white wine was ok!

Went for lunch with my hubby after a long hike to red beach. Amazing feeling sitting so close by the sea you feel you are right there in it! Good customer service. Fresh fish. Buttery rice. Fresh summer fruits. Went again the same week to relive the beautiful experience. One star less for the very high prices (but such is... More

After a morning on White beach, we ate lunch here and the first thing we noticed was the stunningly clear water right next to our table. This setting was perhaps the most beautiful I have ever eaten at. Make sure you reserve a table at the end of the small pier. The service was top notch and the food was... More

We arrived here early evening, just as the sun was setting and were greeted by the owner decorating the steps all the way up from the beach with tea lights. The restaurant terrace is unusual in that you sit on a jetty that heads out into the sea which makes for a lovely romantic setting. The food was delicious, I... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant for the fish. The watermelon salad was lovely and we had a whole grilled fish which was lovely. One thing we didn't ask how much the fish would be as you paid by the kg so it took us a little by surprise but we thought it was worth it. They had shown us the... More
