Great restaurant even if the owner is a bit pushy. When you ask for their traditional wine to start, he explains to you that this is at the end of the meal. "trust me, trust me". Sorry man, I would have prefer it at the beginning of my meal. Same for a dish that we ordered "no you want this one, the other is not for you". Stick to what you want instead of what he says ;-) Other than that, food was great, view OK and it was a good moment nonetheless.

We loved it here! They have homemade wine that in fantastic, and fantastic food and service. The hummus and pita was delish, followed by perfect moussaka and wonderful lamb souvlaki! The staff was so nice, and they have a mini gift shop with homemade goods to take home, including wine! Highly recommend making the trip out here!

Great place with authentic Greek cuisine and many options in the menu. The restaurant is located in a very peaceful place with a direct view at the sea (seeing sunset here is wow!). You can seat either on terrace outside or inside (thanks to huge panoramic windows views from here are great as well). We ordered a lot of meals, my special recommendations - Greek fish-roe dip with pita bread, fried tomato balls, braised veal with eggplant puree, and moussaka with shrimps. They also have a small shop with local products - wine, sun dried tomatoes and marinated capers leaves.

Did not expect to find a restaurant with such a local and authentic vibe on Santorini - our cab even indicated it was one of his favourite places! Located in Akrotiri with a direct and unobscured sunset view and a lively terrace - definitely worth the travel if you aren't already staying in Akrotiri. They serve many local produces from cheeses, tomatoes, capers and vine leaves and many homemade house specials. We sampled a vegetarian mixed platter which highlights locally-grown produces which Santorini has to offer - tomato fritters, aubergine, dolmades, fava, zucchini croquettes, stuffed zucchini flowers and tomato paste with capers and onions. The staffs were friendly and welcoming and even came with a sampling tray of all their preserves and wine which if is to your liking, you can visit their shop to buy some back.
