“Feeding cats lobster while the sun sets”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013 via mobile

This was a fantastic experience. We walked down the steps from Oia--take your time as the walk is beautiful but watch out for donkey poo. We had a great table right on the edge of the bay. The view of the sunset was fantastic. The waitstaff were courteous and called a cab for us when we were done. A restaurant cat hung out with us.

We started off with the fried eggplant stuffed with feta. It was quite possibly one of the best dishes I have ever had. My husband ordered anchovies. They were much milder and fishy than the ones you get in the States. We splurged on the lobster spaghetti. They told us that dish takes about 30 minutes to cook. About 15 minutes later a very small boat pulled up and handed the staff our lobster! Talk about fresh. The dish was rich and complimented well by a lovely rosè.

“BEST BAKLAVA ON PLANET EARTH!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

My husband and I decided to have dinner at sunset fish tavern. We ordered the Greek salad, prawns and the mixed fish for two. The Greek salad was nothing special. The prawns were gigantic and were absolutely delicious. The mixed fish was a very large plate with various kinds of fish.

Overall, the food was expensive but everything was great! However, I must mention that we have had Baklava at about 5 different restaurants while vacationing in Greece by now and the Baklava at this tavern is out of this world amazing.

I told my husband that we must return to this restaurant before we go home so that I can enjoy the incredible baklava one more time.

“Beautiful sunset...food ok, but expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel. Yes the views are spectacular and worth seeing. However the food was expensive. It would also be nice to be advised that you have to order sides. We were expecting something else with it, not just fish.
