Being guests at Aspaki we were invited to use the private terrace of their. Sister property Oia Castle to enjoy the sunset. Fantastic and we felt like royalty. After that we booked Kastro restaurant which was recommended by Daniela and it was wonderful choice. Best views, food was delicious and felt authentic....

We had originally booked to stay in the apartments but the owners cancelled 3 months after we booked because they were refurbishing. Quite glad they did as the location is perfect for the famous sunset which would have meant absolutely no privacy at all, tourist were sitting on the walls which would have been the boundary of the apartments. However... More

We got to Oia late so were rushing around to find a bar/restaurant to watch the sunset - this was teh only one available and its tricky to see but once in we knew we had made a good choice. Waiter apologised he didn't have a front row table, but once one became available he moved us over - food... More

We hoped to catch the sunset from Kastro, but was told reservations had been made 3 months in advance. We were early so we ate a late lunch and enjoyed a carafe of wine. We asked our waiter he thought we could find a good place to veiw the sunset since we could not from there. He lead us to... More

Bruschetta was also v good . Service was quick and with such beautiful view and sumptuous food our evening was very well spent The only thing... More

Any visit to Oia would not be the same without watching the sunset go down but watch in go down in style by booking a table at Kastro Restaurant. Not only the perfect vantage point while you sip your wine but great food to accompany the sun going down. Can get a bit busy around the restaurant as people jostle... More

Kastro is a great location for viewing the sunset but we were disappointed with the food and service.

We booked a table well in advance and I think we may have had the best table in the restaurant. We had mojitos to start which were very good cocktails. We sat and admired the view and atmosphere. Our table was booked for 18:30 and I think the sunset eventually at 19:50. We were not rushed in ordering our food.... More

This restaurant is in the middle of Oia. You are in Oia and can't really see it from the restaurant, but you have a great view of the ocean and the castle ruins across. Make sure to make a booking beforehand, all the good tables are reserved for the sunset (18:40, in Oct). We expected a classic tourist trap, seeing... More
