Concierge.com's insider take:
It has no view, so this deceptively traditional-looking eatery (where every chair seems to be mismatched) is not as crowded as the restaurants along the caldera. But the food, beginning with homemade olive-, caper-, and tomato-flavored breads, is exceptional (pan-fried cod in a corn-flour crust, caramelized beets, and garlic fava beans; grilled grouper in red-onion and fish fumet). The chef, Dimitris Lazarou, is a growing talent who studied under his uncle Lefteris Lazarou, the owner and chef at Varoulko in Athens, one of only three restaurants in Greece ever to receive a Michelin star.
Open daily 7 pm to 12:30 am, March through October. Closed Mondays in October.
