We travelled from perissa to eat at this restaurant after passing it on a previous visit to fira ..
Was definitely worth the trip
Food was amazing as was the service from most of the staff
Only bad point was an over enthusiastic waiter we had who was annoying everyone more than helping us..was a shame but we got over that one
The views are amazing ..
We ate just as the sun was setting...heaven
I would recommend this place on food alone but with the sunset it,s awesome
Why go to oia to see the sunset with all the hustle of everyone when you can sit and eat in your own time and see the same views

Nice restaurant, good food. We ordered a set dinner for two, Santorini salad,lots of meat and a bottle of red wine. The owner said if we didn't like the food we wouldn't have to pay. I was going to take him up on his offer but he wouldn't believe me since we had eaten every tasty bit! No mean feat considering the meat was on a wooden spit piled 8" high. At 70 euros I suppose it could be considered a little pricey but the ambience and the quality of the food made it worth while.

This is a very beautiful site for a restaurant. The food is excellent, the service great and the owners are very personable and were very helpful to me and my group of 8. We were off a cruise ship and entered the restaurant when a very bad storm came on. George and Katerina told us that is was a "once in 25 years", such a bad wind storm. We saw our ship leave and were worried that they left us, but Georgios told us not to worry, that they wouldn't leave us. Then it started to rain and he told us that that was a good sign, since that meant that the wind would let down. He told us that the cable cars wouldn't work with the bad weather, so we couldn't get down. They gave us ponchos to wear once the rain let down so we could get back to the cable cars. The service and food was excellent and the help was a God send. You couldn't ask for more. God bless them all there.

The Santorini salad was divine followed by a large fish platter, some of which was better than others. An elegant bottle of local white wine was a perfect choice to accompany the meal. The staff were friendly and helpful, a good night had by all !

Very tasty food, the meal for 2 with the tzatziki and lamb/port platter hit the right notes. Good service and a good atmosphere, the staff enjoy an occasional sing with each other. There are 2 levels, we were top level with good window views. I would recommend it.
