This restaurant was recommended to us by a local, did not disappoint. We booked as a special occasion for my friends birthday. The staff were excellent, go above and beyond to help you. The food was amazing, fresh produce, and really unique (try the deconstructed moussaka and calamari). Book a table for sunset. It can be a little windy on the balcony, but it's the price you pay for the view. It can be a little hard to find, recommend walking towards it from near the cable car entry/market street otherwise you will hike many stairs. Lovely place for a date or proposal!

This place was recommended by our hotel and as they booked a table for us the staff really seemed to go out of their way to make this a nice experience. The table we had was right at the front and they laid a table cloth down for us which was a nice touch in theory.

Though as we had come for lunch, there were lots of casual diners around the place and people just stopping by then they were wandering around Fira. As such, I felt a bit out of place and awkward. I suspect that it would be a different atmosphere in the evening when more people are making the effort to go out for dinner.

The food was nice though, if perhaps a little expensive for what it was. I enjoyed all the courses and the service was attentive.

I would recommend but either just drop by for lunch or book for an evening and watch the sunset from the gorgeous view.

I got a seafood salad It had 1 prawn on it that’s why it was called seafood salad to be fair is was tasty just small and not very sea foodie and way over priced. Views are incredible and the place is really nice. Service was friendly.

The view was incredible.
The drinks where great!
The food was wonderful.
The only reason why I don’t give a five was that the waiter messed up the bill and had another table on with ours and he didn’t bother to redo it so my husband had to add it up.
Just note that most of the restaurants on the island charge you for the bread, per person. It’s not much but they assume when you agree, it is for everyone at the table. So if you don’t eat bread state that when ordering.
