Our first night in Fira and we opted for this restaurant after one suggested was busy. Service and food ok. Good value for Fira with three courses, wine (house wine and only average) and coffee for two coming in around 90 euros. There are better restaurants but this was a nice surprise.

Visited with family and friends on arrival in Santorini. Good service and drinks not too expensive. Those who had meals said the food was very good. A nice friendly place.

Go for the upper floor on the balcony. They have many tables but it is best to reserve in advance a table right on the edge there, you have a direct unobstructed view of the caldera and even on a hot day you can really enjoy the wind. Fast service with a smile, the meat balls with rice were perfect,... More

Walking in Santorini and finding this charming restaurant (a recommendation from a local in the downstairs boutique) was a serependitous surprise. The risotto was rich and delicious - and my hubby's meal equally good. The view from upstairs of Santorini - spectacular! Totally worth a visit, seriously DELISH

Situated on a lovely little street. Staff were very friendly but took a while to take our starters away as it wasn't very busy. Food was lovely and very reasonably priced. A standard Greek restaurant.

We had a good meal here while the sun went down. The restaurant is above the street so it has a great view over the bay and Volcano. The food was good, no complaints, and the bar was very good also with a great wine list.

In the heart of Thira with a beautiful view of the caldera. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful thanks to our waiter Dimitri. This was our first night in Thira and a must do to have a meal watching the beautiful sunset. Dimitri went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and even brought us... More

We just finished watching the sunset over Santorini and were well and truly ready for dinner. Not only did the lovely staff organize a table for us by the balcony edge (following another couple finishing their meal), they were friendly too. We ordered the moussaka and octopus pasta with a half carafe of vino... Holy cow!! Just yum!! Would highly... More

Warm welcoming staff, friendly and respectful. Appetizers were delicious (stuffed mushrooms, fresh grilled calamari), salads are OK, you might want to try the chicken a la creme with a rich delicious sauce and good presentation. Prices are medium high however it is affordable and worth it.
