“So we loved everything about Idol restaurant. The food is out of this world, the service is exceptional and the view is breathtaking. As a result I highly recommended for those who adore fine dining; so not recommended for those who only want some cheap street food.” – Elena S
“My wife and I had dinner tonight at Idol and it was amazing. The food was fantastic, a unique twist on traditional Greek food. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the views were terrific. We had the tomato cakes, fava stew and souvlaki plate. Every one of the dishes was tasty and had its own twist. So the souvlaki was with pork belly rather than grilled pork and the tomato cakes were topped with seaweed and a pesto foam/cream. Finally I would highly recommend visiting this restaurant, especially for a sunset dinner.” – atmuck
