Everyone told us we "had to" go to this restaurant They try to provide fine dining but, although the food is nicely presented we found it under-seasoned and not as delicious as we expected. The service was a bit fussy and the restaurant lacked atmosphere. Give this a miss and go to more authentic Greek restaurants. A good view if you get a table by the window.

Ate here last night. Hotel booked table for us so we had the caldera view.
We had great mussels in lemon grass and chilli, then truffle and beef pappardelle. 2 half litres of house wine for €70, seemed excellent value to me.

Interestingly we were not generally blown away by the food on santorini other than fresh fish and tomatoes (grown in volcanic soil) and the fabulous santorini wine. la maid on served as a welcome respite from Greek food with a modern flair. Everything was good, the location was great (particularly at sunset), the service was excellent and they had a nice wine list.

We visited this restaurant on our last night in Santorini, having already dined at three other fine establishments. This one had a lot to live up to! It did not disappoint. Our table was on the Oia side so we were able to watch the sun turn everything golden as it disappeared. The downside is that this was cold. The restaurant hands out warm wraps for the ladies and they were needed. However, the helpful waiter anticipated the temperature and lowered the see-through blinds. Much better!

We were offered beautifully presented appetizers washed down with a shot of cold soup. Yum. The waiter was very helpful in suggesting food and wine that we would like. He persuaded me to go with the pasta and it was sublime. Husband pronounced his moussaka the best he had had. Everything was beautifully presented in addition to being very tasty. It is disappointing to read that several reviewers were unhappy with the service. It could be that things changed as the season progressed, but in May it was clear that much pride was taken in ensuring that their customers had an enjoyable dining experience. Yes, it is a little pricey, but good food often is. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a memorable evening of dining.

Tip : rug up warmly. And don't be afraid to ask for the blinds to be pulled down if you are feeling chilly.

We went to La Maison twice in seven days it was that good. A table looking out to the volcano on the cliff edge with stunning views was amazing. The service was faultless and the waiter was able to reccommend a beautiful wine which we both enjoyed.
The food, service and views were perfect and I would have no hesitation in saying this was the best meal and experience of the holiday.
It can get quite breezy later in the evening but they even think of that by offering everyone a Pashmina
