We were four people and booked a table beforehand for lunch. All the dishes we ordered were really tasty but we all liked the lentil salad and fried zucchini the best! The staff was attentive and friendly. We sat down at a table on the first floor which looks like a terrace which was lovely. Bear in mind that there’s only one toilet which is relatively small so there may be a queue in front. Love to come back again :)

Friendly service, reasonable prices and portions, and a variety of delicious dishes! The pork neck had a good smokey flavor. The meatballs were fantastic. The zucchini fries had an umami seasoning and were plentiful. The waiter and waitresses were very attentive and welcoming. We came around 2pm on a Saturday in October and we were seated upstairs immediately.

Came abit early and was able to secure a small table at walk-in. It came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Located slightly off the main street in Oia, it provides amazing food at a more affordable price than places along the Caldera. I tried the tomato fritters which, after comparing a few places I tried afterwards, the latter could not match up. The staff recommended another vegetarian dish of a local greek vegetable stew topped with torched feta which was also delicious and hearty. This is definitely a soul-food kind of place offering comfort in the ambience and warmth in your tummy. Best meal I've had on Santorini that will leave you dreaming about it after you've left.

Overrated. I don’t understand the 5-stars review. We tried the : -lamb tagliata : the meat was over cooked and super dry -traditional Greek pasta with beef : the beef was good but the pasta tastes blend with a small tomato taste -special fried potatoes: nothing special We do recommend the Greek beef stifado. Also, the manager is rude. But our waiter is nice.
