Review of Restaurant Iris

Reviewed 16 May 2013

The best thing about Irisas our waiter. His name was Yannis and he truly took care of us and made the restaurant feel like we were in his home. I agree with the other reviewer who said not to order off the menu, my mom and I told him what we liked and he made it especially for us and promised it would be the best meal we would have on the island. He did not lie! My mom had fish which was fresh and amazing and he recommended salad and saganaki for me (a vegetarian). He made dessert special for us and even gave us complimentary drinks after dinner and even sat down to have one with us. The food was great the atmosphere was perfect and we had gorgeous caldera views all around. Wonderful, wonderful place and affordable too. Definitely a must!

The sole staff(i guess the owner himself) is wonderfully polite.Since there was only 1 staff available, the service was a tad slower.

But the food was good. We tried pizzas, pastas and greek salad. Each one was amazing!!!

Price was reasonable. A meal for two usually came at 20E ( my wife used to have vegeterian and we did not drink)

We ate here twice in 9 days! The food is great but don't choose off the menu tell him that you want his recommendation, he will ask you wether you would like fish or meat and what other dishes he has and he'll bring it out after he has cooked it all fresh!! Also let him choose the wine from his LARGE well stocked collection and you won't be sorry!! I have included some pictures of the food (to follow) x go there for authentic Greek food!

We visited twice - once for early dinner when we were the only diners, and once for a 7:30pm dinner when it was busier. As per review below, we also found that the service - whilst always friendly - was a little slow when there were many diners.
That said, the restaurant is in a lovely quiet area, on the cliff-top pedestrian path 10minutes out of imerovigli village centre towards Oia. It has perfect, uninterupted views of caldera and the sunset. Sit back, enjoy a local beer or wine and gaze away then the speed that food comes out doesn't matter so much!
The food was cheap and tasty. We enjoyed the saganaki, the saganaki with potatoes (kind of like a cheesy galette), dolades (vine leaves), greek salad. The grilled lamb included quite fatty cuts of meat which wasn't to our liking, though the waiter apologies when he saw our leftovers and said next time he would make sure we had leaner cuts. We had some small grilled fish (like anchovies?) one night which were tasty though a little dry/overcooked. All the serves were quite generous in size and overall good value for money.
