I don’t usually review restaurants but this is the exception! This is a family run restaurant and we feel it! I loved it, it is not commercial, it is providing Santorini produced food! They don’t try to serve you food if it is not ready...More

Had early dinner here with my mom after a long day of walking. Great food, wonderful service. Family run restaurant. Fish of the day was excellent, and so was the chicken breast!

The restaurant is very cosy and romantic. Food was good and appetizers were delicious. This is a family restaurant and they were very friendly.
