Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Straight up rude and not worthy of your time. I stopped in today and the server would not let me sit by the water even though there were several open tables. He said he is saving them for bigger parties that might come in. I...looked around and saw many couples sitting at 4-tops and empty tables. I said there is no one here but I’m here - may I please sit at one of the small tables by the water? No he said. The other staff simply stared. I said I would go somewhere else. He said “ok thanks!” I walked 20 feet more and found another great restaurant right on the cliff of the water with great food and friendly staff. There are too many places to give your time to rude places or places that treat solo travelers without respect.More

We were strolling from Fyra to Imerovigli so we decided to have coffee and breakfast and we spotted this place were the prices looked reasonable and the menu for brunch had all sorts of goodies. This is a lovely outdoors garden with ample of space...and of course just opposite the volcano. So 10 points for the view. A lovely smiling lady brought the menu and not long after coffee was on the table. We ordered scrambled eggs with avocado in sourdough bread and omelet sandwich and their portions were huge. We straggled to finish them and i could see the couple on the table next to us could hardly finish half their portions. However, it did take some time for our brunch to arrive. With such an amazing view time was not of the essence. The portions are really hefty. This amazing brunch kept us all day long when we did the whole walk to Oia for the sunset.More

Wow!! We cane here because a local artist told us about it and we loved it! Being on a cruise sometimes you have enough time to see some things and try some food places and THIS PLACE SHOULD BE IT! The food was amazingly tasteful...and locally brewed beer 😬. We have all types of alcohol on the cruise, so why not try the local beer! The staff was great and the sunset... see for yourself. Cruises usually come to this side of the island and it's just a 15-20 min walk to the steps or "elevator" down to the pier. Come and enjoy like we did!!More

We booked the restaurant online for our wedding anniversary and we were a bit early for our reservation so decided to have a few drinks until the restaurant opened. We ordered a couple of local beers and a cocktail each and I thought they were...a bit expensive but it's Santorini so it's expected that you'll pay for the location on the caldera. We went downstairs for dinner and we got a great table overlooking the caldera and the staff took our order right away. We wanted to try the grilled octopus and the cheese pie from Skopelos and both were great I went for the chicken kontosouvli and my wife went for the Greek style lamb chops. Both dishes were delicious and the portions were large .I tried a 40 year old vinsanto that's only available in Santorini and although it was a bit pricey I loved it. We were full and we decided to skip dessert as we had a show to visit. The restaurant is very good and it's on a few levels all of which has a caldera view and it was a bit expensive but we both enjoyed the experience.More

The cinema was a great experience and the view was impeccable, but everything has it’s downside. The letdown here was the service. The servers were slow and mean and the information they gave was incorrect. We were sent an email that told us to arrive...at 19:00 but we were told on spot that the movie would start at 20:30. And not even that was true. The movie started at 20:00. If you are gonna go to the cinema, I recommend having dinner before the movie. The experience was great nonetheless, but it could be improved by minor tweaks in the service.More

Stopped in the baking heat on the way back to Imerovigli mid-afternoon. Beautiful scenery, great music and atmosphere, delicious food and gorgeous wine. We shared the sourdough bruschetta, with the tzatziki and a couple of glasses of the Santorini Assyrtiko white. The waiting staff were...friendly and attentive.More

Really special spectacular setting. Nice beers and wine. However customer service seriously lacking. Reserved a table for drinks 48 hours in advance but when we arrived lots of empty tables were mysteriously reserved for friends of the bar staff who showed up either two hours...after us or didn’t show at all. Bar staff also thought it was ok to come and stand directly in front of us and block our view of the fireworks. They seemed surprised that a tip was not forthcoming at the end of the evening even though I ordered and collected drinks at the bar. Despite spending €93 didnt even get a thank you or enjoy your evening when we left.More

This awesome restaurant was recommended to us for dinner, and we are so glad that it was. The view of the caldera is spectacular, and the food is wonderful! But most of all, they treated us like royalty, and wanted to make sure we had...the most wonderful experience! And we did! If we ever return to Santorini, we will definitely dine there again!More

We thought we would be enjoying a nice movie during the sunset. We got there a bit in advance to choose our seats. On the website the movie was said to start at 7.30pm but when we got there on the advertising on the wall...it said 9pm. I then asked a waiter who then said at started at 8.30pm to in the end start at 8.45pm. It is very expensive for what it is. The food choice is very limited and expensive. The staff is fare from being the best as well. Over all it was not a nice experience and a waste of Time and money.More

Great food and beautiful view! A perfect spot to watch the sunset while having a cocktail or eating dinner. I am gluten free and dairy free, and I had options. I ordered the wild mushroom pilaf (which is made with rice so it is gf)....They took out the butter and cheese, and instead used olive oil. Would recommend! They did note there could be cross contamination in the kitchen, just FYI. Sister’s review for the oven baked lamb: a delightful combination of flavors. Very nice portion of meat, and the sauces add a unique flavor. Also, the tabouleh as a starter is fantastic! Mom’s review for Soutzoukakia (spicy meatballs): the “meatballs” were actually in the shape of sausages. They were different but still good. The potatoes were like a smashed potato and delicious. One note: the service is extremely slow. It took ages for our drinks to come. This is why it is a 4/5More

We had read some mixed reviews about the food here so we kept our expectations low - but didn't need to worry. The food and service was excellent. Maria, our waitress, was a star. She looked after us all night, ensuring our wine glasses were...topped up and we loved chatting to her. The food was good, not the best we've had, but very tasty and the portions were very generous. We were more than replete at the end. It's not fine dining, so if you're expecting that, you'll be disappointed. However, you won't be disappointed by the view! We had the perfect table to watch the sunset over the caldera. All in all, a wonderful experience, one we would be very happy to repeat.More

Beautiful setup however the woman running the event was extremely rude and robust about customers being on time even though the timing of the event online is a mess! I booked a table in the garden/restaurant for food and drinks at 6:30. Due to the...lengthy walk up many steps we were 7 mins late. The woman standing at the entrance told us we were late and checked her watch as she did this. We apologised. She passed us on to a lovely waitress who looked after us. We booked the outdoor cinema tickets online (in advance) which does not give you the time the film starts at. I had to choose a time for this booking as well so picked 7:30 and hoped for the best. Later discovered the movie started at 9. Great, I thought. Ordered more drinks. At 8pm I asked could I go inside and take my seat for the movie and same woman again told me my reservation was for 7:30, that I was late and then she rudely checked her watched again. After a brief discussion she seated us. Bear in mind show was not sold out, didn’t come on until well after 9 (so who was late this time?!) and both restaurant and the showing of the movie are all in the one venue. Crazy how this woman is so robust with timing and rude yet her own event didn’t start on time as planned. Really dampened the experience. Other waiters and staff were lovely and helpful. Can’t say the same about the lead woman. If you can ignore the rude staff the film outdoors is a lovely experience especially while the sun sets.More
