Superb in all respects. A hidden gem in the heart of Fira. Authentic Greek cuisine with an excellent menu. We loved it and will keep coming back. The view of the Caldera is breathtaking.

Excellent location off the hustle and bustle of the centre town but walking distance from there Food absolutely amazing and the view of the Caldera and sunset breathtaking. Prices considerably cheaper than town centre. Highly recommend!
