“Very disappointing”

Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

Went there based on some of the "awesome" reviews below only to be extremely disappointed..
Had ordered Greek salad along with seafood risotto and Greek pizza..
Salad was as it is normally..requiring no culinary skills...
They were kind enough to make the risotto without prawns..but it's was extremely dry..mussels were slightly smelly and squid was rubbery and it was no where close to an actual risotto..
Pizza was more like a tarte..thick crumbly base..no real taste..could only taste the feta..
Sorry to say..but it's was very very disappointing.

We found Louis Restaurant 4 years ago and have visited it every year since.
We have tried many other restaurants in Fira and Oia but keep coming back to Louis, in fact in July 2014 we dined there every night of our stay!
One of the things that sets Louis Restaurant apart is that there isn't anyone outside trying to coax you in. There isn't any need as the food speaks for itself.
It is an extensive menu for such a small restaurant, yet every dish is cooked to a high standard.
Louis' wife does all the cooking and she is just such a fantastic cook!
The bonus is that you will have a great sunset view if you dine in the evening, so take your camera!
Louis. We will back again next year! See you then!

We shopped in Fira so long one afternoon that we decided to try to find a terrace restaurant and watch the sunset there and see Oia on a different night. We ordered the tomato balls for an appetizer and knew they wouldn't be a favorite dish of ours because of the mint but they were fresh and well-prepared and we enjoyed trying as many new Greek dishes as we could on our stay in Santorini. That being said, when I saw the family adjacent to us eating pizza, I had to order one! It looked amazing! And when we got ours, it was! It was fresh and hot and thoroughly enjoyable. Louis serves beer from the local brewery and my husband and daughter enjoyed that as well. We got there early enough to get the outside corner table and had a perfect view of a perfect sunset. It was one of the best experiences of our stay on the island and we had many! Louis does wait on all of the tables (it is a relatively small place), so it does take a little time for him to get to everyone, but we found this to be the case in most places here. Go early, before you're really hungry and try to order as much as you'll need the first time. That helps. He was a nice man and we thought the prices were good, especially considering the view.

We were looking for a nice place, shady, but with a view to enjoy a light lunch. Louis hit the spot. From the moment we walked up to the terrace we were treated wonderfully. The restaurant is very small, but the view and food are great. The husband waits the tables and does so all by himself. We assume the wife is in the back cooking the best saganaki we had on Santorini, and boy did we have a lot of it. The different takes on the traditional greek salad we wonderful. The pita and tzatziki with homemade pita was stellar. Highly recommend this out of the way family place.

I ate here twice during my week in Santorini. The first time I had the Moussaka which was really great! The second time I went for Chicken Gyros, which was good but I expected more after the amazing Moussaka :)

The staff was really nice & friendly
