Wow! My partner and I came here on a Wednesday night for dinner after looking at the menu online. It sounded amazing on paper and it truly was in person too. The atmosphere is nice and relaxed and the staff were very attentive but not overbearing. They explained the concept behind Sapiens and they all seemed genuinely interested in the food they were serving, also offering suggestions for sides which we took up and definitely were not disappointed. We would absolutely recommend this place, the food was amazing, portion sizes good and full of flavour! The place is a little bit off the main strip but is definitely a little treasure of Oia!

The epitome of gastronomy! We visited the restaurant with a group of friends and we had a fantastic dinner time. The atmosphere is magical and the staff is friendly welcoming and very attentive! We had 2 salads, ceviche and tartar. For main course we had tuna filet, pork, chicken and quite a few side dishes! Everything was delicious! We will definitely visit again!

Simple and perfect, the simple things, perfectly prepared raw or grilled, absolutely fresh, with a taste that cannot be surpassed. Those who forego the view of the volcano while eating will be spoiled for it with delicious dishes. Last but not least. Thank you for the super, lovely waiters. We can only recommend eating here to everyone.

We unexpectedly went to Sapiens and what a great surprise it was! The food was fantastic- we got the scallops, yellowtail collar and lamb and all were absolutely perfect. Additionally, the cocktail menu was thoughtful and unique. The service was excellent- we went on a chilly night and ended up sitting outside. The waiter brought us an additional heater and a blanket for my lap! So thoughtful! Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend this new and exciting restaurant.
