We came here as a recommendation from our concierge. The restaurant was spectacularly positioned and being between Fira and Oia it avoids many of the crowds without compromising on the view. The food was absolutely wonderful for our family of 6 ( including children) my husband had the lamb moussaka, we also had the chicken filet, the lobster ravioli, the octopus and were provided with a vegetarian menu for my mother in law. We all loved our dishes and the suggested wine pairing was perfect. Of note it’s not easy to get to the restaurant- there are many steps both down and up which were a little challenging for my more elderly mother in law and for us girls ( would recommend you avoid heels!). However the view of the sunset,the delicious food and the wonderful warm service made it all worthwhile. Five stars all around!

We visited the athenian this July of 2018 and we got really disappointed. We have had gourmet meals before, and usually the taste is something else. This time the taste of the courses we had was simply awful. I mean it is not easy to cook a lobster ravioli and taste like store baught barilla sauce, or a kalamari that tastes like magiritsa...(greek traditional easter soup with lever)... also the portions were very small, bite sized, but that is usually expected in such restaurants. Not to mention that there were no tableclothe or supla to serve onto. They were simply placing the knives and forks directly on the table... other than that the location is great and the service really good, but definitely not worth it...

This place is beautiful and serene. We missed the sunset but it didn’t matter. The view was spectacular with all the lights on the cliffs and the glow from the set sun.
The food is amazing and not traditional or ordinary. The staff is the best part of the entire experience. Everyone is kind and attentive. In typical Greek style, they will not allow you to leave without eating dessert so pick something!
So wonderful

Gorgeous view, delicious, innovative food (especially the dessert) and friendly, professional staff. The decor was gorgeous but really nothing beats the sunset view here, it’s phenomenal. (Though I have to say you probably can’t go wrong with the view anywhere in Imerovigli). Not cheap but worth every penny and they even gave me a beautiful key chain token souvenir at the end of dinner which was a nice touch/heartwarming.

This was my favorite restaurant in Greece!! The views are beyond stunning in Imerovigli and the sunset was beautiful. The service was great as we were treated with two complimentaey dishes by the owner of the restaurant. He came over and talked to us on numerous occasions, so friendly! The food was fresh and out of the world. We had a great bottle of wine as well. Highly recommend this place!!!!!
