We enjoyed eating here with live music on the first night of our holiday so decided to go again the following night at is was close to where we were staying. The second visit was very disappointing. We had a different waiter who appeared to be a bit distracted. A couple of things we wanted from the menu weren't available... More

We went here on the recommendation of our hosts at the Enigma and were not disappointed. We savored all the traditional dishes of Santorini; Tomato balls, eggplant dip, sardines, meatballs & Greek salad. And the delicious house red. Our waiter/host could not have been better. encouraging us to try different dishes and to linger over them in the typical Greek... More

We ordered the Greek Salad and Spaghett Naoussa to share. It was wonderful. The owner was very accommodating but be sure to plan on a leisurely dinner. We asked for our check at 9pm and didn't leave until 10pm. They insisted we have more wine and dessert - on the house!!

We were lucky to make it to this restaurant last week before it closed down for the season. Had a lovely table for six just as the sun was setting. We shared starters of warmed fava beans and tzatziki and pitta then had various chicken dishes and moussaka, all were delicious and served with a smile. House wine in a... More

Would recommend the pork meal although the menu as a great variety of seafood and traditional food. The pork wa excellent. Value for money and amazing view of the caldera and volcanic island. A must to at least go once to this restaurant on your trip.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we are so happy they did. The food was wonderful from the Bruschetta, Ciziki and Jaganaki appetizers to the Shrimp, Moussaka, Octopus and Mussels entrees. The wait staff was amazing. They did more than simply take your order and check back periodically. They spent time talking with you and took many photos of our... More

Everything was incredible from the view, staff, location and most importantly the food. Would definitely recommend the octopus starter (best we had on the island) and the sea bream. Both were done very simply and to perfection. Definitely recommend.

Amazing everything from kind staff, delightful chef, amazing delicious food and great location/view/atmosphere. Worth finding, but on the edge of touristy area so easy to miss unless you're looking for it. Very cute restaurant with multiple terrace levels. Very quite in October so service really attentive. Chef even came out to say hi and was so kind to give delicious... More
