Like sitting in a Greek kitchen, food simply served with no frills, waiter laughed at me when I requested a Mezze of starter but apart from that food was tasty

One of the best restaurants we have ever been in Santorini. Good, traditional Greek food and not expensive at all. Strongly recommended.

We had an excellent experience in the restaurant. You may have to wait a few minutes to get a table, but that just shows how good and popular they are-and it is well worth the wait! The food is excellent, the service is very efficient...More

Try the lemon and oregano lamb, delicious. The service is a little bit harsh and it seems they not accept people ordering just salad (it happened at the table near us, customer left). It's crowded, it's good, it's cheap, compared to other restaurants.

Tuck in one of the street of Fira and is always full. They serve the food very fast, comparable with McDonald but the quality of food is top notch and very authentic Greek stuff. Must try no matter how full or how busy you are.

Although Santorini has loads of restaurants, it is the only one I found which I would consider 'the real deal' with quality local food. Totally unassuming decor with fresh ingredients & a charming, welcoming multilingual owner (apparently the place has been there since 1956) &...More
