If you are around Firostefani, you gotta try this place for super awesome and perfectly done food. And better to reserve in advance as the place is not so big and people who want to eat here are way too many :) Try to reserve outside on one of tables next to walk way to get perfect sunset view.

We tried a range of starters (tzatziki, olives, etc) and all were incredibly tasty. I had a whole baked bream which was sweet, perfectly cooked, and oh so fresh. The service was good and the location was lovely. Highly recommend this taverna!

Staying really close to this restaurant (though 3 or 4 of the popular restaurants in Firostefani are just within a stone's throw of each other anyway). Chose this restaurant for our first night in Firostefani after reading the great reviews and was not disappointed. During mid-afternoon, in the post lunch time, it was very quiet in their and we could... More

Our hotel had recommended this place for dinner. We chatted with other couples in the hotel, two couples had really enjoyed their dinner here. We've been forewarn the food is simple and good, but service is lacking. So we came with that in mind. The moment we arrived we were seated right away, a table on the street with sunset... More

One of my favourite restaurants in Santorini for food, ambiance and history! We had tried going here earlier in our stay but mistakenly thought it was closed. We had walked by at about 6.30pm and it looked very closed, so we went somewhere else, walked back past it about an hour later, and it was open! A warning about Greek... More

We have had dinner at this place 5 times during our stay. We loved the classic Greek food. Every dish was very well executed and the service was briljant. We only drank wine from the island, much to our joy. The caldera view from this restaurant is absolutely stunning. One warning: make a reservation because otherwise you must be very... More

We stayed right next to the restaurant and it was amazing! We saw that it has really good reviews on TA so we determined to go. We're the only lucky couple that got a table without reservations, so please make sure you do make a reservation fi you wanna go there. The food here is hearty and absolutely delicious.

Start with a wonderful tzatziki. I then had mussels served with capers and garlic in a wine broth with cherry tomatoes. The Greek salad had way to many cherry tomatoes for my taste but plenty of cheese, capers, cucumbers, kalamata olives, etc. with a nice touch of oregano. I ordered the scampi on spinach served with a thin pink peppercorn... More

Had the risotto with squid ink and now my singular goal in life is to recreate the dish. Wish I had the recipe because I can still taste it in my dreams!
