“Good food. Useless waiter. ”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 via mobile

We chose this restaurant because of the high ratings on trip advisor. While the food was excellent, the waiter was no help at all in the selection of our meals. We requested what were the specialties of the house, and although he spoke English very well, he was reluctant to provide any helpful information to the point of being rude. My boyfriend ordered the muscles with tomato sauce, which was very well prepared. I ordered the stewed lamb with mint yogurt sauce. Another hit, as the meat was very tender and plentiful. The waiter never checked on us to find out if we were satisfied with our meal or needed anything else. Our experience could've been much better with a different server.

“Best meal in Santorini!”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is deceivingly delicious. I was skeptical because of the obnoxious signage, the man advertising on the street, the arguably "mafia" vibe, and the few guests during dinner. But this was hands-down the best dinner we had in Santorini (Corner Restaurant is my other favorite).

The mussels were in the best white wine broth I have ever tasted. We had a salad in a bowl made of cheese, which is hard to beat. I'm at a loss for our other dishes at the moment, but the food was fabulous. This restaurant is a must.

“Superb Greek Food”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

We found this restaurant on the lower road through Fira based on reading trip advisor comments about restaurants in Fira prior to going on holiday, thank you!!

Superb food, drink, service and despite the busy road outside a table on the roof garden at the back is great with a view over the other side of the island.

The friendliness of the waiters and the quality of food is second to none we've had throughout all of Greece over many years and visits.

My wife and I love Greece and Greek food, make the effort to find this place 100yards down the road opposite the hospital in Fira, i promise you will not be disappointed.

“Authentic Greek restaurant”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

Nice restaurant away from the over priced strip on the caldera. Has a very nice garden terrace on the first floor, open to the sky and nice breeze. Wait staff were friendly and helpful. Food was what you would expect to eat at a family table, it was tasty, well presented and reasonably priced. They also offer you a complimentary ouzo either before or after your meal and a small Greek desert if you can fit them in. Worth putting in the effort to find.
