                                                From the beginning the restaurant gets you involved in the private oasis of your feelings, it starts from the gorgeous compliments and from every step it increases to the highest point of the service. The taste of the food is just incredibly awesome. Definitely the best restaurant in Fira. Every course worth it. P.S. You should try “dry aged beef”.

                                                The food was phenomenal. One of the best restaurants I’ve been in my life. The chef is over the top with creations and mix of flavors that my wife and I loved. Service was also outstanding with spot on recommendation and amazing care of details.

                                                A nice quiet spot down some stairs off the main pedestrian walkway. Very accomplished food, friendly service and nice view.
