“Best service and nicest tavern in santorini!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

Very good and friendly service, nice setting and cozy feeling, good food and the finest vin santo I tasted in my stay on santorini. Cold beer and fair prices, waiter was a bit hard to understand but that was probably a side effect of the cold beer and lack of understanding of Greek accents. Overall the best dining experience in santorini in my opinion.

“Food was acceptable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

This was close to where we stayed and was ok for a local place to eat. The owners are friendly, but they don't speak very good English and unfortunately, misunderstood what we had ordered on 1 of the 2 times we visited. However, there was no problem. There don't seem to be many people eating here, but that could be because of the position, which is not on the main 'strip'

“Friendly and cat-friendly restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

The servers, host, and cook were all extremely friendly and welcoming, but did not hover awkwardly. The food was good, but the appetizers were better than the main courses. My personal favourite part was when the stray (?) cats came into the open-air area and walked around among the guests and waited patiently for any handouts. I was expecting the servers to at least yell at the cats, but they left them entirely alone, which made me really happy to see. Myself and my fiancee fed the cats small bits of meat from our plates and all the cats were friendly and didn't seem to be starving, although they were quite pleased to get a treat. I wouldn't hesitate to go back to this restaurant!

“One to avoid”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

I can only assume that the people who have rated this so highly perhaps don't have a proper sense of what half decent food is. Like so many tourist restaurants they seem to serve chips and rice with most dishes! Anyway onto the food. My partner ordered a chicken souvlaki and half way through her meal she bit into a raw piece of chicken. Needless to say she was unwell not long after. I myself had the veal as it was down as a traditional Greek meal. It was rubbish at best! When I complained about the raw chicken we were greeted with a shrug of the shoulders and brought some watermelon. If they'd offered the meal for free as a goodwill gesture it might have gone a small way to making us feel like they genuinely were sorry. There are many, far better, restaurants along the sea front and little side streets.

“Simply the Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Great place to go for lunch or spend evening with glass of local beer or Metaxa;). Very good local dishes - just try musaka or grilled octpous - heaven in my mouth.
Lots of kisses for Andeas and Kostas from Oliwia!!!
