Excellent food from this well run family restaurant. The squid is the best I’ve had in terms of flavor, veal stew was excellent (the lamp takes 7 hours to cook and we’re too early for it at 6pm). Croquettes and eggplants are prepared and presented very creatively and the dessert did not disappoint. Even the house wine was wonderful. Great way to end our trip in Greece!

Celebrating 101 years, so they must be doing something right! Had a very nice lunch of pasta with mushrooms, truffles, and cheese, plus a nice dry rose wine. Great views, and much less expensive than nearby restaurants.

Local local local this place is legit ! We had codfish balls and Greek salad and moussaka. The taste is so fresh and the moussaka was freshly made in a clay pot. The view is amazing and the service is outstanding. George asked about my allergies and explained the menu so well. I will be back

This place is a gem. Each meals was plated so beautifully like a work of art. The best meal I had during my stay here at Santorini. Came back the next day to try out other menu selection and never disappoint. Ingredients used were so fresh. Personally it was an affordable meal and value for money. Cozy restaurants with indoor and outdoor seating. I came without reservations and was seated immediately. Highly recommended to dine here for authentic Greek food.
