Awesome! Came at around lunch time, got beautiful view of caldera and cruise ships. The view is spectacular because restaurant is perched up high. By far one of the best place to eat seafood in Santorini. Argiri and Michalis were super friendly and provided wonderful service. Only downside is you can't take your leftovers, because you'll get big portions. Picture of Seafood Linguini and Seabass, and Grill Vegetable Salad.

We had an amazing view and the service was good. I recommend the sardine bruschetta, that was great. The octopus could have been a little less chewy but over-all, a nice dining experience. This is where we also had breakfast since we stayed at the Akra Hotel where Aerno is located. Their inclusive breakfast was great, too. Lots of delicious options.

I was very impressed by my evening at this restaurant. The staff was really here to help, make us discover the different dishes and advise us accordingly. The view was impressive and the service was fast. The food was good. Nonetheless I would happily recommend this place and come again. Useful tip: book your dinner 30 minutes before the sunset, the experience is amazing.

Beautiful sunset view! We had the best sunset view of our whole trip here. The food was pretty good (but slightly mixed feelings towards it), I guess not spectacular is the right way to frame it. I enjoyed the greeting from the kitchen (cod ceviche) and the beef carpaccio a lot. My main dish was pasta and that was also lovely but my partner was not so happy with his skirt steak. I didn’t enjoy the coconut panna cotta, it didn’t taste of much but the plate looked pretty 😅 I think overall it’s overpriced for what it is - my partners red wine was colder than my white wine which was a no go unfortunately. I would still recommend going there for the view though! :) and the staff was lovely and attentive too!
