    One of the best meals I’ve ever had. We were in Milan the week prior, and dined at multiple Michelin restaurants while there. The food, service, and ambiance surpassed all those restaurants and then some. Truly, the entire meal was an absolute treat. Thank you for sharing your food and hospitality with us.

    There are many restaurants in Thira with sunset views but if you are looking for the one for that super special occasion, with excellent food and service with that bonus spectacular view, this is the one. The restaurant is very intimate, maybe 10 small tables on this big covered terrace perched over the cliff, so you don’t hear noises and crowds. Awesome bar. Nice background music. The service is excellent; we had three waiters tending our needs with the best professionalism and personal attention. The food was amazing and portions just right. Note that this is not Greek taverna food but gourmet style Greek inspired dishes, so prices were not cheap. The only disappointment was that there was no complimentary ouzo or digestive liquor after dinner, served at all restaurants we have been in Greece (taverna or not).

It was art on a plate. The cocktail, magnificent! The wine, danced on your lips. I will eat here, every time I visit Santorini. Must try! Let’s not forget, you have the most magnificent view of the Caldera with a perfect sunset!

    Fantastic view. Food was outstanding. Superbly cooked. Staff was most welcoming. BUT the staff performed most admirably when the weather turned bad. Our reservation was at 5pm. We tried to time our reservation with the sunset. This went well. Immediately after sunset we could clearly see a major rain storm creep in. Fortunately we were near finishing our meal. The restaurant staff and the adjacent hotel staff accommodated the small remainder of our meal inside. Despite the need to take care of the tables, chairs, sunscreens, and etc., the staff never lost attention to us.

    Beautiful location and site of the caldera at sunset. The waiter was nice but as a solo customer I felt they lacked attentiveness to serve me in a timely manor. And I’m only mentioning this because there were only 5 tables occupied and it wasn’t a busy moment at the restaurant. In any case the food was delicious as and excellent presentation.

    When we first walked we were greeted with one of the best views we had seen thus far on our trip. The staff was very attentive and made sure we had an enjoyable experience. The bartender with his creative touch crafted a one of a kind smokey whiskey and passion fruit drinks that was delicious! Have your camera ready!!

Splendid view with love songs during all the dinner. It was just perfect. It was too bad that the quantity are huge, we didn’t order dessert. A next time maybe!

    1st evening in Santorini. Beautiful location and sunset. Excellent ambience. The food, however, was a big let down. We ordered the lobster ravioli, lamb chops snd salmon. The lobster ravioli was so inedible. It was purées leftovers of seafood. The combination was not meant to be together. The lamb chops were cooked well but lacked flavor. The salmon was bland and rubbery. Overall we had a great evening— only because of the location.

    Found this restaurant on Open Table. We have been to a few restaurants that were tourist traps so we were not sure what to expect. Wow we were very impressed. The restaurant is located in a beautiful boutique hotel. When I booked it I was asked to choose from indoor or outdoor seating. They only have outdoor which was lovely. There was enough shade, a beautiful caldera view and breeze. We shared a variety of dishes all of which were delicious. The sweet feta appetizer is incredible as is the ceviche on the lunch menu. Compliments to the Chef and great staff. We will be back for dinner.

    Our first dinner in Santorini. Delicious food with gorgeous views. Service was a little slow, took forever just to get a bottle of wine. Almost an hour between appetizers and main courses, meanwhile the restaurant is pretty much empty. Nonetheless, we enjoyed taking our first dinner slowly. Would go back just for the views of Fira.
