They're both still there, just empty.  Oasis is on the way out, near to Spiros and the path to the Acapulco.  Adama is a small restaurant if you walk past the Me Gusta bar, before you turn the corner down to Faros and Petrino, if you look back you see it built on several levels, a bit like the Nausica.  But now it's all overgrown.

So I tried the Nausica again for the first time in years, and that was good.  I don't know exactly when I last had anything there but it seemed to be dodgy waiters and melted cheese on everything.  Pleased to say that now there's good committed service, the menu is a bit short but what's on there is all well done.  I tried a bit of cheek and asked for the Bifteki, but with the creamy mushroom sauce destined for the steak.  Plenty of spice and pepper in both and I loved it.

The only one I hadn't been in before was Tango, on the inland side just before the steps to La Grotta.  Nice cold cider on tap and great views from the lounge back over the road down to the beaches.  There are steps down, though you don't realise how high up you get just following the bend in the road from Nereids and up past the Akrotiri.  Still haven't tried the grill that replaced the Moody Blue (miss it), though that's an ideal spot for a restaurant on the bend and seemed to be doing well.

Also neither the small grill or supermarket next to Lena's art shop opened, though she seems to be doing OK.  It's a shame the place is a little far from the beach where all the day-trippers are dropped off - I don't suppose the coaches make a special stop there - but there are some lovely bits and bobs - if only for a charming hand-painted fridge magnet instead of all the imported Chinese ones that mostly show Santorini anyway!

In other shocking news, the Akron has a bright shiny new sign with lights on; it no longer looks like the sign for a small-town petrol station with one rusty pump and some dodgy 10p crisps on the counter.  Though it's still what seems like half a mile from the actual bar itself.

At The Greek Way, Niko has finally put a price next to the Papoutsakia that's been on his pre-printed menus for the last three years, and very nice it is too.

Sounds like you had great fun!
I know where Adama is now you've explained it. Nausika is one of my absolute favourites, OH had Grandmama's lamb twice! Huge hunks of lamb in cream & mustard sauce.
We also like Tango bar for the views, you're so right about not realising how high you've walked.
We wanted to spend more time up at the top end this year but friends that travelled with us weren't the walking type so we only ventured as far as Spiro's once.
