This is a great chilled out spot to have dinner/drinks at sunset and avoid all the crowds that are in Oia to see sunset.

Easy enough to find, walk down the main road to the fishing port in Oia and you can't miss the turn off to Katharos Beach. Bit of a hike back up though, so just ask them to ring you a taxi when you want to leave :-)

The Raki cocktails are dangerous - you have been warned :-)

Also quick tip, they don't have a phone line in the restaurant/bar so accept cash only.

We went here the day we rented a car in Santorini. It was great! Very laidback and chill. The weather was a little cold so they offered us super cozy blankets so we could sit on their awesome patio. The scenery was beautiful. Loved how secluded it was from the rest of Oia. The beach was amazing and would be awesome on a sunny day. We had their sausage with yellow mustard and baba ghanoush with warm pita bread and it was so delicious. The mustard sauce was out of this world. We also had 2 glasses of house wine and the bill was €23 which is awesome in the Oia area. Would love to go back and sunbathe on the secluded beach and eat more of their fantastic tapas plates. The black dog that hangs around is also a major perk, a total sweetheart.

Good views of the sea and the food was great but not the best in Santorini. But i did enjoy the service and location (very secluded).

We found this place thanks to tripadvisor. You need a car, or taxi, to get here. The place was not very busy at all and we walked up to the beach first for the view. I am very happy we decided to have a small meal here after all. The young staff is very enthusiastic and friendly. Since it was already getting a bit cooler they gave us some blankets so that we could still enjoy the sunset which was blazing the sky. The food was in one word fantastic. Top notch modern cuisine in a cool lounge setting. Fantastically served tapas.
Do not miss this place.

This patio/lounge overlooking the fabulous sunsets in Oia could not be better. The atmosphere is very relaxed with sofa seating and reggae music playing softly. The food is tapas style with nothing more than €12. Every bite was delicious - the babaganoush, the pork tips, the potatoes gratin and the grilled zucchini were all cooked to perfection!
