“Amazing home-cooked food and service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

My partner and I were given directions from a local shop owner to this off the beaten path restaurant - it was dark (dinner time) and we had to walk sideways past a donkey on the sidewalk to find it! All part of the experience and we absolutely loved it. We were warmly welcomed and had a wonderful traditional meal - everything tasted like it was from a family recipe and portions were very decent. The chocolate souffle dessert we had was incredible and we still talk about it! It was reasonably priced and couldn't recommend it more.

“Mmmmm great authentic meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

This place was recommended to us by the owner of the cave houses we stayed at and mmm was it ever good. My husband and I order a Greek salad to share as well as two veal meals in tomato sauce with fries. Our meals were just fantastic and the portions were huge, I couldn't finish my portion but my husband did. Definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Oia.

“Old charm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

No spectacular views but does what is says on the tin - decent grub at reasonable prices and a nice spot to rest stair toiled legs!

“Simple Greek fare, well executed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

Pleasant courtyard restaurant in old Oia, no sea views but very charming and on a windy day it actually much nicer to sit here than on the hill crest.

Food is simple but well done. No overcooked calamari. Service quite slow today, but unless you are in a hurry this shouldn't matter.
