“High Quality food & amazing view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

One of the best locations in Santorini the best in FIRA I will say, very clean restaurant and friendly staff. Food: you must try the seafood sole fish,octopus with baby onion & shrimp in mojito sauce. At the end they offered us a free glass of vinsanto as well as a local traditional biscuit dessert which were fantastic!!!

Character is the place to be!!
Cocktails with fantasy! Excelent food. Try the risottos, the meat and fresh fish! Delicious salads and unique sunset. It is an all day meeting point!

“Great view, great service, food not good!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

Went here today after arriving in Santorini this eve. Thought of trying out the place after seeing the tripadviser comments. Even though there was a few negative comments on food, decided to go and check it out as the overall rating was good.

The place is lovely, clean, friend people to serve and the view is amazing!! The cafe is on the top level and the restaurant is a level down. Cafe food is good. Can't complaint as I enjoyed the omelet I ordered as a snack.

Went down to the restaurant to have dinner which was the wrong decision I made. I can't remember the name of the main I ordered. Somehow it had fish with lemon sauce it said. When it arrived It was a fish wrapped in a paper with some veges which was still ok because I thought it would be still tasty. I was so wrong. The fish was completely tasteless. I am a person who does not fuss about food as long as it had taste in it even though it's not exactly what I expected, but I couldn't eat more that 2 bites from the fish. Gulped down a 3rd with very difficulty and then ate only the veges and left the fish. My husband took a bite and didn't like it at all. ( but his meal was somewhat ok...) It didn't have any salt or any tangy/sour taste from the lemon sauce. (salt n pepper was not available on the table too which I was surprised )
The place might have some other well tasty dishes but if any of you are going do not order the fish which comes wrapped in the paper!!!

“Great service... Not great food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Beautiful views and excellent service, but the food was average. It is unfortunate as we excepted much more from this restaurant after reading all the other reviews.

“Great food, even more beautiful view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Although it is a bit more expensive, the food & service is great. Then there's the view. It is an absolutely beautiful place to have good food and drinks. I would recommend not bringing small children here though, as there are steps around and it is a relaxed atmosphere.
