“unique combination food - price- place!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

the most characteristic and traditional place in Oia.all the meze plates are delicious and the quality is premium!they serve local beer (yellow donkey ) and wine.You can taste a variety of smoked fillets, sausages, salted fishes and homade pies.A few but unique plates! The prices are very good.From the terrace you can see the island side to side.The music is only greek!Clever ideas for design and very friendly staff ready to help you and suggest you a nice choice of drink and food.I would like to visit again and try more!The kitchen is open from 2pm.

“Worth seeking out - the best food we had in Oia”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

I'd searched for this restaurant a couple of times after seeing reviews here on tripadvisor, but it's not a place that make its easy for you, but I can promise that it's worth the effort.

Only a couple of months old, it's a welcome find in Oia which is dominated by expensive restaurants with stunning views, average food and get them in and out mentality serving the cruise ships /sunset dining experience visitors.

The menu is simple, very reasonably priced and dominated by Greek classics, with en emphasis on fresh flavours, authenticity and lack of pretension. We loved their Greek sausages in tomatoes, aubergines salad, meatballs, octopus and tomato balls - maze dishes served strafing from the grill, perfect with their wonderful fresh bread. They also do a great range of local beers and wines.

To find them - they are situated towards the end of the marble pedestrianised strip on a side road in between androids hotel and definition villas/katikies villas or just behind the opera art gallery. The signage is all in Greek alphabet. They have a roof terrace, although this was closed on our visit - it should offer views of the sunset

“Great local fare”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Fine food and excellent service at a very reasonable price (especially for Santorini). A nice new addition to the Oia restaurant scene.

“Excellent taste, excellent price, just excellent.”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

You can tell by the menu that these guys appreciate good ingredients. There is little in the way of presentation but the main theme of the place seems to be earthy food and flavours and they have succeeded in delivering this in a laid back unpretentious atmosphere. I can only compare it to the best type of Terra Madre style restaurants in Italy. The best surprise was when the bill arrived as the prices are unbelievably low for the quality on offer!!
