Food was delicious and creative, with really lovely service. We decided to opt into the tasting menu, and it blew us away. And the sunset and view is unreal; the best view we had our entire stay (1 week) in Santorini. Yes, it's expensive (as are most things in Santorini), but personally think it was worth it. Our server, Daniel, was really great - he was fun, attentive and very friendly.

The Athenian house is a on of the top 50 discovery restaurant’s in Santorini. It over looks one of the old Venetian castle ruins into the Aegean Sea. Since it faces west the sunsets are amazing to watch from your dinner table. The menu in this restaurant changes by season and highlights local ingredients to create delicious meals. The restaurant takes reservations through their website. There is no calendar to pick dates and time just yet but a email requesting a date and time is the best way to reserve your table. A deposit of €100 is collected during the reservation and is applied to your meal when you visit. Our visit to Athenian house was very memorable as it was our last day in Greece celebrating our honeymoon. We picked from the Ala carte menu since it had the most accommodating dietary options. Initially we had the wait staff bringing wrong dishes to our table - which the restaurant promptly addressed. Following this we had a wonderful time (laughter, conversation etc) with a couple sitting next to us and our maitre d'. Giving a 3/5 stars because - 1. service issues - wrong food items & not being attentive to cutlery 2. The food that was served wasn’t as extraordinary for the price. Expect to spend ~$400. The salads - summer bouquet & ruccola & strawberry salad both didn’t hit the spot for us.

This is going to be a loaded review. I’ll start with the view, the view was amazing! You are 100% paying for the view and service IMO. We arrived just before sunset and had some good time in the sun and then were able to watch the sunset and stay for dessert well after dark. It’s a great place to see the views from the cliff side and see the cliff side lit up at night. Second, the service was incredible. Waiters and waitresses do an amazing job making sure they explain how it works and what each dish is. The night started trying to find the restaurant. The paths and streets on the cliff side wind and drop and climb, which is amazing to experience, but it does make it difficult to find where you need to go. I would recommend just stopping at the first restaurant you see and ask them where to go as Google walk is not the easiest to use on those awesome paths. Now for the food. Personally, this was not for me. The food did not taste great, as expected at a fancy restaurant, the portion sizes were small, the food was puréed and shaped to the way it was wanted. The best part for me was the strawberry salad and then the dessert. The rest of the food really was sub par and I’ve had better food for way cheaper at other places in Santorini. So if you’re going for the best tasting food at a lower price or even moderate price, I would skip this one. However, if you are okay with the higher prices, want an experience with the view and service and consider yourself a “foodie”, then this would be the place for you.

This restaurant is on another level. There are hundreds of restaurants in Santorini, but this is the number 1, best of the best. The food was exceptional and the service was excellent too. Shout out to Daniel for going above and beyond to make sure we had a memorable night. Only warning -if you're in a group the likelihood is you'll be sat further from the end of the balcony, and there are big umbrellas that might obscure your view of the sunset.
