First the view is amazing, but is free all around the area l. The food was poor quality for probably 5 times the price it should be. The red wine by the glass is undrinkable.

The only reason I gave this three stars is the view. The views of the sunset were incredible and the service was great, 5 stars. However the food was disappointing. Very disappointing, 0 stars. The food suspiciously came out less then 5 minutes after placing the order as if they had prepared the food. My husband had the beef casserole... More

The menu is lacking in much variety and from my own meal and observing other diners meals, the descriptions really don't match what is served up! Food was also stone cold. Vastly... More

We dined there with my girlfriend in order to enjoy the sunset of Oia. The view of the sunset is decent, though we had a poorly located table near the end of the restaurant, with a wall blocking some of the view. The food was terrible. I order pork cutlets and it was something like mixed pork with rice noodles... More

We were travelling with some American friends who were visiting Greek islands for the first time. The obvious first island to visit was Santorini and as we had visited 4 times before we were familiar with the key things to do. One of these attractions is to experience the sunset at Oia, not necessarily because of the sunset itself but... More

The view and setting feels too perfect to be real! Indescribable views, with the added bonus of amazing food. Service staff rushed therefore not waited on as would be expected
