Let me be clear - if you're visiting Santorini, Athenian House needs to be on your list. The views are unparalleled - the restaurant features a very large uncovered terrace dining room. You eat under the stars while overlooking the caldera. There's no better view...More

Food was amazing but we feel we were overlooked as all the tables around us had their orders taken and some even sat and then left before us, and it seems a few of the other tables had a personal touch/visit by the chef/owner but...More
