Nice atmosphere, beautiful sight. That's all.
Terrible service, high prices, worst risotto ever had and tasteless, dry pork with an awful (flour thickened) mushroom sauce. Don't go there, please. Try some of the good souvlaki places in the island. You're gonna save money and patience.

Sometime's when your a tourist in a foreign country it's hard to know where to find good authentic quality food, especially when all the locals are so nice like the amazingly relaxed people of Santorini.

At Saltsa's you will find rich tastefull wholesome food at a decent price. We went there as a group a couple days after our wedding and found the cuisine very delightfull. There was 8 of us in total and there were no complaints, just smiles all around.

BTW - desert is amazing, we had a bit of everything & shared it. Can't remenber what it was called but if you're a lover of Cholcolate, give that one a whirl. You won't be dissappointed.

Looking for something more than Firostefani's couple of restaurants, decided to follow the main road down towards Fira. Passed Saltsa, unobtrusively located on the downhill side of the road. Quiet night, we were the only diners in some very cold and windy weather. A mistake for those eating elsewhere. After a week of really excellent dining around Santorini, this tops the lot. Chef Dimitris Lazarou cooks for those who appreciate his food, which on this occasion included us.
Fabulous spicy tomato mussels, I don't normally sup up all the soup remaining, did so on this occasion. Very delicate veal with potatoes and onions, no knife required. Best chocolate fondue ever.
So struck by this place, for which I had done no prior research, I then followed it up on tripadvisor. Curious mix of people who appreciate a super chef in action, and those who don't understand why he would usher them out without them paying, if he thought their complaints unwarranted.
Believe me, go with the fans!

We discovered Saltsa towards the end of our holiday on the road between Fira and Firostefani. As it's logo suggests, it is a Slow Food restuarant, affiliated to the food movement of the same name. As with past experiences in other countries, it's the sign of good food being served - whether by a producer or a restauarant.
Although it was very much the end of season and there were only 3 tables of diners, we found the food to be really really good (and Snufflehound minor is VERY fussy). We savoured delicious home-made bread and a truly wonderful aubergine/eggplant dip. My delicious kebab was presented on a bed of spinach (the only green vegetable we saw in 2 weeks apart from salads.) Even the house wine was really good.
The service was charming, and the setting gorgeous. We ate in the open air under a canapy of bourgainvillea with fisherman-style lights and lanterns.
The bill was a little higher than average, but this was by far the best meal we ate in 2 weeks. We done everyone at Saltsa

I dined here in my third night and cannot fault the cuisine or service. The food is contemporary yet undeniably Greek. I can't recommend the eggplant starter enough, even the home made bread was divine. The location does not afford views of the Caldera but you still have a wonderful vista over the island.
