This place is a total rip off. I wish I had read the reviews before going. We were conned into ordering a large fish and side dishes that we didn’t need. We were charged 200 euros just for the fish for 2 people. My husband had to run back to the hotel for more cash, this gave him time to calm down a little and when he returned he confronted them about the price. It was then that they pointed out the 60 Euro per kilo charge. The menu that was flicked in our face was not the one we were originally given. Their response was very rehersed, and they agreed to reduce the bill by 60 Euros if we paid in cash. Only thing good about this place is the view,

Thank E R

This is a Zero mark review
The cactus drink is the clue... run
This is the same restaurant as Don Angelo and currently they don’t put any name on the receipt... so who knows what they are next week
Smooth talked into a cactus drink, then a huge fish, not mentioning the 60 euro Per kilo and the bill said 2.65 ( how can you argue after it’s served..)
I expected a higher bill but 156 euro for a salty grilled fish....
We were screwed but hope other won’t be....
See owner, staff and how I felt

We stopped here for lunch. We should have known since no one was in the place and it has a beautiful view. We found out later from several local business owners, that they have a terrible local reputation and they would like to see them shut down.
We ordered 1 drink each (a terrible greek mojito that he pushed two of us into ordering) - a greek salad and a mixed cold appetizer platter which came with completely different items than what we ordered. When we questioned this he tried to explain that this was what was on the menu but it was not! It was okay so we didn't want to make a big deal. Then we were each ordered fish so he decided that we should pick out one large fish from the display case and he would cook it for us. I picked one out and he proceeded to tell me that i should choose a different one which he then cooked and served. The fish was good but when the bill came at $340 EUROS (ARE YOU KIDDING ME??!!) we where shocked. The bill was not itemized. But because the he chose the whole fish and never gave us a price we didn't really know what do. Had we each ordered a fish dish each they would have cost about 25 euros each - A total rip off. This guy is a master con artist and is abusive to tourists.

I honestly don't know how to put into words how bad this place is. It's literally a scam. The food is awful, the prices are ridiculous and when we told them the food wasn't good the owner kicked my sister and we are now trying to get in contact with local police. Just don't ruin your holiday by going here.

The view is OK, the coffee and drinks were horrible, the experience we learned here is priceless. BEFORE you sit down anywhere in Santorini, Greece, Italy, the WORLD please look at their menu and their prices. We learned this one the hard way as it looks like many people also had the same experience as us.

We came in asking for a Mimosa and a greek coffee and got talked into having a cactus juice drink, and a famous "Santorini" coffee which was OK but not at all what i was looking for. Paid 23 euro for both. Of course they took no credit card so had to walk to get cash.

The no credit card is a trick so they do not have to file their earnings correctly as was done by a couple of different restaurants in Greece. Look at the menu, make sure they take VISA/Mastercard if thats how you are use to paying. AVOID this place at all cost, do not let yourself get talked into anything you dont really want.

Lesson learned with this place!
