Another local merchant recommendation. Located in an adorable alleyway. Absolutely charming establishment. We ate the Greek salad, lamb, and steak. The steak was melt in my mouth delicious. The lamb was tasty too. Each side was flavorful.

A very charming, traditional, family restaurant with live music. Not on the Caldera, but wonderful restaurant with a quaint little private courtyard. The waiter was polite, friendly, and insistent on providing good personal service. He recommended the mushrooms, and they were indeed excellent. Well priced for great variety of traditional Greek dishes.

This is 5 star dining for me. They blew ammoudi Bay fish tavern out of the water. The lamb was amazing. My fiance was at a loss for words. The staff is so attentive and welcome you as their guest for dinner, not a customer. This is a true gem in oia!
