“Uniquely a classical bar - great for a break”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

With all the history of Santorini, sans the tourist shops, one will eventually need to have all that information sink in and absorbed by our mental faculties. What better way than sipping a glass of Santorini Nykteri listening to a piano and cello concerto while gazing at the mystical caldera?

This is definitely a great place to unwind. Don't expect gourmet food but good enough to keep one's body healthy enough to let the soul
Wander through time and history.

“Rehab”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

Fabulous retreat for body and soul. Get a bottle of wine, listen to classic music and enjoy the view especially in the night. Breathe and enjoy every minute of it.

“It's paradise!”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

I recently returned to Santorini after 25 years and was delighted to find this bar still open. As far as I'm concerned, this is the only place to go for sunset on the island. Beautiful classical music, fine wine, lounge chairs, and the most spectacular sunset in the world. What more can you ask for?

“Sunset Views”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Go for a drink and watch the sunset. That's what most people do. It was expensive for drinks and apps, but as they say "when in Rome". Nice classical music piped in while sipping wine and watching Santorini's incredible sunsets

“Maybe my new favourite place on Earth”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

This place is a total delight. A retreat from the hustle, bustle and donkey dung of Thira, the setting is divine and overlooks the volcano. We came in the afternoon and drank amazing cocktails. The quality, views and service justify the high prices. Don't let them put you off, this is the most peaceful and beautiful bar you'll ever sit in.
