We recently visited the lovely island of Santorini and were amazed by the lovely people, exceptional service at restaurants and generally what a lovely place to holiday. We were however bitterly disappointed in this rip off place which is the complete opposite of everywhere else on the island. The service is deliberately slow so that you end up ordering without seeing a menu (and therefore the prices) and then end up with a bill that you would consider hugely excessive if you dined at Buckingham Palace. Not always easy to see the names of the restaurants when walking through Fira, but worth the effort to avoid this place at all costs.

Worst restaurant in Fira. save your money. Overpriced menu : We payed 140 euros for two ( without the drinks). The food wasn't so good but the worst of all is that even though it was half empty we waited for 1 hour for our starters and an other hour for our main courses. On top of it, they make you pay things you didn't order (ex : bread 6 euros, plate of vegetables 18 euros). It was by far the worst experience we had. The manager was totally haughty and was constantly avoiding us when we were trying to complain about the wait. Don't go there. Big mistake.

Don't waste your money people. How I wish I had checked tripadvisor before stumbling off the poo laden donkey path into this restaurant. Overpriced food pushed onto you by con men who are all working together to squeeze every last penny out of your wallet. Hidden charges, food we didn't order, and to top it off we had to pay cash as they wouldn't accept cards. Avoid this place at all costs!

So it's 8.15pm and we are rushing to find a restaurant to sit at with a wine for another amazing fira sunset. We dash past one, then two and three restaurants with good views but totally booked out. Then we arrive at Don Angelos, YES!!! Tables free, we can pretty much choose where we want to sit anywhere in this huge 3 tier restaurant.
We should have seen the signs!

Now it's probably our fault but in our rush to get a table we didn't really check the menu very well. The bill arrived and we were pretty shocked how quick it all added up. The food? Well, just ok. Not bad but not amazing either. The service was perfect, but most restaurants in santorini have been just as good.

We spent a while trying to justify the price, (maybe that's what a meal costs with a view like this?) but restaurants nearby with a similar view are half this price.

Like I said its probably our fault for not moving onto the next restaurant after seeing the menu prices. My advice to everyone, look elsewhere for a better meal for a better price, Don Angelos is really not worth what they are charging.

The beautiful scenic views and the clean linen tablecloths were a clear indicator that this is an expensive restaurant however the hard sell approach spoiled the beautiful meal as did being asked to pay in cash when given the bill. The overall feeling was one of being ripped off which was such shame as the food was fabulous.
