This place is tucked away and in a superb location. We went several times whilst staying in Oia and can't say enough how good it is. We just missed the live music as it finished the week before we arrived for the season, but only gives us a good reason to go back again next time a bit earlier! The owners and staff all very friendly and good fun. Food was great we must have tried half the menu. Good cocktails and music to chill you out totally. I really do wish this place was my local. Lastly I see it's now number 1 and it should be. Well done all. Keep it up.

My husband and I were recommended Katharos Lounge by a cute girl at our hotel while in Oia on our honeymoon. Once we finally found it, it most certainly did not disappoint. It was by far my favorite place in Oia, possibly my favorite on the entire three week honeymoon! The service was welcoming and perfectly timed while remaining very casual and laid-back. There was a fabulous band playing and other guests (obviously locals) were singing along, it was a wonderfully fun and relaxing environment. We didn't eat there, as we had other plans, but wished we could have stayed there all night. A couple of tips: 1. Go early - it fills up fast once the sun starts to set. 2. Be sure to get very good directions...our first venture out to find this place took us all over and we never found it that night.

During our stay in Oia we spent the day at the bay just down from Katharos lounge. Once we were duly baked in the sun we sort refreshment and food and found ourselves at Katharos lounge. My girlfriend had the greek salad which she says was the best she's ever tasted (and we had plenty during out 9 day stay). It's very casual and the service is very good with some very good views across the caldera. They looked to have some live music but we never saw any when we were there but it came recommended from the hotel we were staying at. It's a bit isolated from the rest of Oia but its well worth a trip to sample the great views, service and views on offer.

We arrived at approx 4 and enjoyed some meze. All dishes were delicious and had tasty sauces served with them.

Service was great, not too rushed.

We hired a car for the day and this was our last spot. A great way to finish off our holiday in santorini'
