I ate here with a party of 5 back in June. It was undoubtedly one of the best meals we had during our time traveling around Greece. The atmosphere was amazing, with gorgeous sunset views, and the food was incredible. Our server was wonderful, and the service was great.

Great view, delicious cocktails, but pizza would be much better if it was with another dough

Fantastic sunset views and delicious Italian food. The service was fast and wonderful. We ordered the truffle salad, pistachio pizza, and salmon with dream broccoli purée.

Beautiful place to see sunset. You get views of the white houses in Fira and the entire bay of Santorini. Food was delicious - Mainly pasta, but very high quality. We ordered: - Fava with Octopus - Tagliolini al nero do sepia - Mezzi Paccheri con Salsiccia di Santorini Worth visiting!
