We were a group of 6. The food tasted ok, the lasagne (which 2 people had) was dried out and presented as a square lump of reheated rubbish, my 70 year old father called it the worst lasagne he has ever eaten.
All dishes were brought to the table on cold plates, any restaurant should know that you never put pasta based dishes (which 3 of us had) on a cold plate as the pasta gets cold in a few minutes.
The bill had an extra beer on it which they agreed to remove.
We paid by credit card and were charged a 3% “markup” on the EUR to GBP conversion, we were not informed of that and had to find out by reading the small print on the receipt.

Lasagne - Horrid
Pizzas - Pretty Good
Swordfish Ravioli - Contained a lot of tiny bones in almost every mouthful.

Dear guests, we thank you for choosing our restaurant. We are very sorry if the dinner was not much appreciated (even if the review begins with "The food tasted ok. (??). Unfortunately yesterday evening there was a lot of wind and this certainly helped to cool the dishes on the table. 3% commission charged on payment by credit card does not depend on us, but are charged on the GBP = EUR exchange from YOUR bank automatically. We would like to have an extra chance to demonstrate our professionalism if you decide to come back.
Thank you anyway!

We ended up here from reading the reviews on here! Food is great value for money! Only got one chance to go but would have gone back again if we had more time!

We visited Convivium by chance whilst walking through Fira . The staff were very friendly and helpful and they thanked us for visiting theirs restaurant even though it didn’t have a sunset view from their terrace.
The food was lovely and the home made pasta delicious . We were offered a complementary dessert and my partner who is a chef said the panacotta was superb .
Friendly atmosphere and lovely food just off the main cliff top street in Fira
