We decided to visit this place on our honeymoon and despite spending a fortune on taxis to get here (20-25 euros each way from Fira), it was so worth it as you get a wonderful meal at such a great price compared to other restaurants on the island.

The bread was freshly baked and delicious and I enjoyed the red wine too (a small carafe for around 5-6 euros which was great value).

We both ordered meat dishes which were really tasty and we were also given some delicious cheesecake on the house which was a nice touch.

My only gripe would be that the location is a bit of a jaunt if you don't have a car but it was a lovely evening so still worth it if you need a break from stuffy, overpriced places in Fira.

Worth the effort to find this dining gem...
Located in a town mostly untouched by the tourist trade...
Use your GPS to find this place, signage is hard to see but keep looking!
Food was fantastic, large portions, traditional island cuisine, excellent service, book to get an outside table...
Another island delight....

This restaurant was recommended to us by the owner's of the hotel we were staying at and it didn't disappoint us. We were sat on verander over looking Karami at night and the food was brilliant. You need to pre book a table a couple of days in advance as there was a constant queue for tables until late at night. Would definitely recommend this as a most go to restaurant.

12 days into the hols and 12 evening meals out and we have had some lovely meals but this was the best by far. So worth the taxi fare their and back from Fira. Nice touch of complimentary raki olives and cheese. Starters of baked asparagus in cheese and cheese and smoked pork on pita excellent. Mains of steak and pork where outstanding.
Complimentary cheesecake superb. House wine fab.
This is a must if on Santorini!!!!
