Our Reviews


This is a family owed restaurant that has great food, lovely wine. We have tried both fish and meat dishes and they were equally tasteful! Very nice for a romantic dinner! Kind people, nice scenery and lovely music!

Delicious food with amazing service. We were a group of 6 people and we all loved it. The service was superb.


This restaurant is excellent. Only 5' walk from the village, with lovely view, inventive & tasty dishes, cosy & friendly environment. The owner/master chef : Augustis, a friendly, smiling, inspired, talented person is offering his best to satisfy his guests.

Πολύ νόστιμο φαγητό, ιδιαίτερες γεύσεις σε καλες τιμές και με πολύ ευγενικό κι εξυπηρετικό προσωπικό. Θα ξανά έρθω 🙂


Παρα πολυ καλο εστιατοριο. Οι γευσεις ειναι ξεχωριστες. Πολυ καλη η προσπαθεια του σεφ να βαλει στα πιατα του μια Κιμωλιατικη πινελια. Το προτεινω

Maria Louka

Τα πιάτα υπέροχα και με παραδοσιακές πινελιές! Το προσωπικό πολύ ευγενικό και φιλικό και η εξυπηρέτηση άψογη! Το μέρος με το αεράκι του και τη θέα σε ταξίδευε! Το επισκεφθηκαμε χθες 25/8.


Έχοντας δοκιμάσει σχεδόν όλα τα εστιατόρια του νησιού θεωρώ πως είναι από τα καλύτερα. Πολύ νόστιμες προτάσεις, όμορφα πιάτα, ωραίοι συνδυασμοί. Αρνητικό που δεν είναι σε πέρασμα και πρέπει να το ξέρεις για να πας.

Πανέμορφο φιλικο περιβάλλον! Υπέροχα φαγητά! Και πανέμορφη θέα! Η σαλάτα κίμωλος είναι πολύ γευστική!!

As soon as the night falls the whole […]

Cycladic Dining: Great Restaurants on Kimolos

Kimolos is petite; there’s no room for error. They’ve got just the one main town – Horio (not “Hora” like on other islands), and there’s no anonymity; everyone knows what everyone else is cooking, and reputation matters. In fact, restaurants sometimes go by two names – the official name, and the name everyone calls it, which is usually the name of the owner. The people here are […]
