“Good food, great views”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

We lucked out and snagged a table along the overlook after booking a reservation through our hotel. If we had the original table just back one row of tables the review would not have changed much. The view is really best away from the restaurant looking back. Luckily you're a short walk to the main overlook and can order, walk and take some photos and come back before the food has come out. Nice menu with a good selection of drinks, mains and desserts. The staff were very attentive and generally the crowds weren't too bad getting there. It's tucked away inside the rest of the area with narrow off camber pathways so be prepared to go exploring to find it. Once there it's worth the trip and makes you want to stay and relax longer. Worth a trip and make sure you arrive for sunset and are prepared for everyone else to be snapping photos as the sun goes down.

“Lucky Lunch Break”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

We chanced upon this lovely spot when we were at the Castle just above Amoudi Bay. It was 1130am and it looked closed as all the umbrellas were still closed. We walked up and the young man said yes they were open and to sit anywhere. Coming from the equator we picked a shady spot but everyone else would've picked a sunny table. Umbrellas were closed because it was too windy! The iced coffee was a good start. Food was superb - a must-try of the Santorini tomatoes is their fabulous bruschetta with feta cheese. Also the chicken Caesar salad with juicy lettuce and sun-dried tomatoes & the fresh seafood pasta tomato based. It was just so lovely and perfect sitting under the beautifully colourful flowers and having this fantastic meal basking the in the shade of the Grecian noonday sun with the wind blustering around the corners - and not crowded at all in October. We must return.......

“best sunset view in Santorini”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

Even though there are many restaurants with beautiful sunset view in Santorini, this one is 'relatively' unknown and less crowded. Also, one of only a few restaurants located in sunset side. However, reservation is still required.

“Unblocked view of the Caldera and Sunset”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

Jusr a few steps from Lotza restaurant, you could also enjoy the sunset from Castro. The food wasn't good - we ordered a grilled fish and meatball for our main course, the fish was stale and raw; the meatball fells out like coconut flakes once you pricked your fork in. It was very dry and lacked of flavor. Our meal with 1 beer and 1 bottle of still water cost 44 Euros. Totally not worth the money except for the unblocked view.
