We loved our meal at Mezzo which was recommended to us by the manager of our nearby hotel Absolute Bliss. The tomato balls (a local specialty) were delicious but the octopus surprised us when it came out: a single large tentacle (we're used to baby octopus in Greek dishes in Australia). However it was char-grilled perfectly & was very tender & tasty, with the texture of a premium pork chop. The Popeye salad was fresh & delicious; the lamb shank perfectly cooked, falling off the bone easily; and the grilled chicken skewer with lemongrass, ginger & harissa sauce was mouthwateringly good! Our only regret was not trying the local Santorini white wines. The restaurant was not full but they were turning away people without bookings, so we were pleased we booked for an early dinner (6.00pm) to avoid the late-dinner crowds.

Food was good and a great location to watch the sunset. I had an octopus starter and my wife had the tomatoes in yoghurt. Tremendous - for main I had fish whereas my wife had a chicken skewer. All recommended.

Not sure how this is not the number one restaurant in imerovigil. Best view. Amazing food. Try the baklava. Best we have had in Greece so far. Very friendly staff.

We had only one night to do a sunset dinner in Santorini and we specifically made the reservation for a table with a view of the caldera. We even asked which of the two available times would be best for seeing it. But when we arrived, we were seated in an upstairs corner space, with the wall to the private seating area blocking literally all of our view. (I've now read the other one-star reviews and see this has also happened to others.) We might as well have been five miles inland. We could not see an inch of water or sun. When we got up to take one quick photo from the steps, the waiter acted like we were putting everyone out. Both tables across the way from us (with views) ordered after us and got their food before us. Both were attended to carefully, while we were ignored. Two people at our table got their food several minutes before the other two, and so it had cooled by the time we all could start eating. It felt like they had just concluded that because we were (politely) unhappy about the placement if the table, it wasn't worth giving us the basics of good service. The food is decent here. Please just don't bank on getting the view they say you'll get. And it was way too pricey for the chance to stare at a wall and be ignored by a waiter.

Lots of lovely things to try in the starters list so didn't get to mains for lunch. Very good spinach and nut salad, tasty tuna tartare with green apple for a point of difference and perfectly cooked mussels! Great view and great service.
