Whether its a few beers with friends or a meal, this is the place to come for all the right reasons. Set back away from the Caldera edge, your pocket will appreciate the fact that you are not paying hyped-up prices just for the priviledge of sitting at a table with a caldera view. However, the outdoor seating area is also protected (by being lower than the surrounding road) from the island's meltemi winds which can make some places a little chilly once the sun has set (quite often those same places that charged you extra for the great sunset view over the caldera).

The staff are friendly and obliging; a group of VT-ers arrived at almost midnight and the staff had just closed the restaurant but were happy to re-open due to the size of our group and the fact that we had already spent the previous night there as well!!! Jimmy (or at least I think that was his name) was like a whirlwind serving beers and opening them, all in one fluid motion!

Favorite Dish: We had all sorts of great dishes here, from appetisers to full meals, but my personal favourite was a chicken stuffed aubergine bake thingy - I'm sure Jimmy would be able to point it out on the menu. It was delicious!
