Although we advised that we were only there for predinner snacks and drink, we were shown to an amazing table which would have an incredible view of sunset. Appreciative of this as they didn't try to hold their better table for dinner crowd. Appetizers were delicious and beers came in individual beer coolers to keep it cold. Staff was excellent....

Eat here on the recommendation of our hotel. Really liked the atmosphere, comfort and food of this restaurant. It was a cool night so they enclosed it with transparant screening and had very attractive fire lamps that added to the atmosphere and comfort. Enjoyed our meals and the service was very good. Would return here first if we visit Santorini... More

This place felt a little posh compared to the multitude of tourist taverns. The food was decent and the service excellent. We really liked the fried zucchini and eggplants here.

Had dinner there, it was cosy and warm ( we went there on a cold moonless night ) and staff was friendly. Food was delicious especially the fried anchovies and tarama dip that came with warm, home made pita bread. We ordered a chicken kebab with rice, stuffed tomato, pepper and zucchini with herb rice and grilled lamb chops served... More

Went here on our last night in Santorini. Almost all of us had lamb chops, and we thoroughly enjoyed them. Juicy, well seasoned and plentiful, I would definitely go back

The restaurant is located beautifully with a superb view on the Caldera. The menu is too short for my taste. They have three kinds of Souvlaki and few other main dishes, that's way too less. We wanted to have a full dinner there but only ate starters and went to Paria for the main course. The service is nice and... More

We walked pass this restaurant many time and looks lovely from outside, so we gave it a try. As previous reviews say strange staff and cold food, couldn't wait to get out of there.

We sat on top of the restaurant with an excellent view of the sea. It was a lovely setting and I fell in love with the Tomato Ball appetizer. My husband and shared a mixed appetizer plate and were offered a complimentary wine cordial which he said was very smooth. (I don't drink.) The Greek coffee was exceptional. The service... More

We booked a table for 18 people the night before our wedding and the staff and food were fantastic. My family is Greek and I can say that the food is authentic. Best Moussaka I have ever had. They handled the large group with ease and a good time was had by all.

My husband and I ate at Vanilia a couple of days ago and had a lovely time. Being the end of the season we were surprised the restaurant was full but the exceptional food and sevice soon explained why. It was too cold for the roof terrace, but the enclosed ground floor was lovely and cosy.
