    It's a very romantic restaurant, with a pool and a great view. We went at night, so the lights made the romance climate, although the view for the sea was dark. The food was an amazing experience. I ate the cod and my husband ate the lamb. The prices were 40 to 60 euros per person for the main courses.

    At first, they didn’t find our reservation done with OpenTable over a month ago. Then they offered us a table with poor view because all the good ones were already booked. They charged us 6 $ for bread that they offered once we ordered which surprised me. The food we ordered was good I have no complaints about this but the servers came to serve plates on our table twice by mistake which were meant for other tables and I almost started eating in one of them. We left with a bill already including the tip and had not deducted the 30$ deposit made through OpenTable required to when you make a reservation. Very unfortunate.

    Everything about this restaurant was amazing… the view, the service and the food. We had a cliff side table with a magnificent view of the water. The staff took extra time to explain all the food and wines. And the meal was one of the best we had in all of Greece. Very romantic and memorable evening!

    Our family had an incredible time dining on the edge of the caldera. The service was top notch and the courses just kept coming. When we asked about mastic used in one of the dishes they not only provided a descriptive answer but they then produced glasses of it to sample! Each of us ordered different entrees and we shared several starters. All were very good. Thank you for providing our family with a wonderful vacation memory.

    Très bon restaurant, comptez environ 175€ pour 2 pour entrée plat dessert avec boisson :) Le cadre est magnifique, nous y sommes allé en septembre pour 19h30 (si vous souhaitez voir le couché de soleil essayez de venir plus tôt) Les serveurs étaient tous très aimables et les plats super bon je recommande !

    It would have been handy to know in advance that we both had to pre-register. On arrival we found out but there was tad confusing as we thought it was ok that we were registered under one person. No issues registering just the instruction felt last minute am not very clear. Other than that and excellent service!

    Location veramente esclusiva,tenendo conto dell’orario del tramonto e prenotando a quell’ora siamo riusciti ad ammirare gli ultimi minuti di sole prima della notte dal bordo piscina che fa molto effetto infinity pool. Il personale è super cordiale e il bicchiere viene sempre riempito. Il manager sempre disponibile per qualsiasi richiesta veramente ottimo ci siamo sentiti decisamente coccolati. Il cibo complessivamente molto nuovo,in special modo il polipo e il tonno.bravi!

    Ristorante consigliato se si ricerca un posto raffinato e di classe per un’occasione speciale. Accoglienza già dalla discesa dei gradini e poi vieni catapultato in un atmosfera magica, è la sola parola per descrivere il posto. Merita andarci dalle ore 20 in poi così non vi perdete il tramonto mozzafiato davanti ai vostri occhi. Tutto magnifico, da favola! Merita tutti i massimi voti che si potrebbero dare a un ristorante. Eccellente!

    Amazing 8 course dinner & Wine Pairing! I’m so glad I made this reservation for our Anniversary. The food, the wine, the table, the view, the staff, & sunset were just perfect! Value is fair for the such dining experience! They also are always offering to take photos which is always a delight. We can’t wait to come back someday.

    Would give zero stars if I could. Way over priced. Most expensive, and worst meal we had in Greece. Ambiance was so awful and cheesy, we couldn’t even talk to each other the cd they were playing was so loud. The food was almost inedible. My hubs ands lamb was so chewy, he could barely eat it. We couldn’t wait to leave, and called our taxi half way through dinner. Don’t go- Way better places.

    We were made to feel most welcome by the attentive and knowledgeable staff, friendly also. The food was amazing, we were advised of what was on the menu and nothing was too much trouble. It is obvious that the setting and location provides the experience with the "wow" factor, but the cuisine is exceptional. Thank you

    We visited for a special birthday and we were both really disappointed. Unfortunately, the food was extremely poor value for money, the service was confused and slow, and we left feeling robbed. We had much nicer meals for a fifth of the price at nearby restaurants (e.g. Caldera Romantica). The restaurant itself is beautiful with lovely views, but you don't get the sunset there (whereas you do with the restaurants at the top of the cliff).

    Un endroit merveilleux, le cadre est à couper le souffle avec un magnifique coucher de soleil. L’accueil a été parfait (les hôtes étaient aux petits soins et nous ont même prêtés des plaids la nuit tombante). Les plats étaient eux délicieux. Deux feux d artifice en prime (pour des anniversaires) une adresse à ne pas louper si vous venez à Santorin. Nous y reviendrons avec plaisir.
