During a vacation in Greece, we did an excursion of a couple of days to Santorini. Not terribly much to see on the island, but if you're looking for dinner, than this is the place to be on the island.

We passed the restaurant a few times and it always seemed busy so we didn't get around to trying it until the end of our holiday. Wish we had found it earlier as the food was delicious and it was a lovely sunny spot to sit and eat.

We visited this restaurant three years ago and had a great evening with decent meals. We went back there this year and wished we hadn't. The young man serving was surly, clearly bored with his job, couldn't be bothered to do anything more than take our order and couldn't wait for us to leave. The food was terrible. My husband...

What a joy it is to sit and eat in this wonderful restaurant. The food is home cooked and staff are charming. We ate in there most days of our two week holiday. Beats the others hands down. Especially recommend the briam, giant beans, chicken in lemon sauce, meat balls .... I could go on. The walnut pie and apple... More

My husband and I were staying in one of the studios here and decided to have dinner here one night. Within 5 minutes of getting our food we were quickly surrounded by 3 cats.

While on holiday in Perissa we went here various times because of the fantastic food. The restaurant is managed by a lovely greek family who are very friendly and welcoming. The mother is doing the cooking and she is doing an absolute fantastic job! I especially enjoyed the aubergine salad, the meatballs with tomate sauce and the mousaka. It is... More

We were recommended to eat at this restaurant. It is a small family run restaurant and the food served is all home cooked and very plentiful. A great meal.
