Upmarket and a little pricey

This was the least friendly of all the Tavernas/Restaurants we tried, the service was a little more formal and the food a little more fancy and the bill reflected this. Having said this the food was excellent, I couldn't fault it but don't feel in a hurry to return

The rib eye steak was mouth watering,the staff were very attentive and helpful. We had a great meal to celebrate our friends engagement, the staff went above and beyond to accommodate our meal. Highly recommended, was also a great place to go to keep out of the wind as required.

The Sphinx restaurant (tel: 22860 23823) is located right next to one of my favorite Hotels, the Atlantis. As all the venues on the overlooking-the-caldera side of the road-of-tourists, the view is excellent - you felt almost as if you might fall into the sea. In addition to attentive wait staff, the food was first class; we had many smallish... More

Wonderful! I celebrated my wedding reception at this place. It was splendor, the view made it all. We had the little terrace, with champagne, Lamb, shrimps, heart cake. The people was very nice, the decoration simple, relax, beautiful. Easy to book, great communication via e-mail, and also helped me to find other services for my wedding. My best dish, lobster,...

You can't beat the view at sunset! We had dinner the first night on Santorini at this restaurant. It was a great introduction to Greek food. Our waiter explained different things on the menu. Food was delicious. Ask for a table by the water. Can be a bit windy but worth the experience. Bring your camera and your appetite.

My husband and I often wax lyrical about a dish of pasta carbonara and a bottle of red wine shared on a cold day in Florence, Italy, holding it up as the bar that all other pasta dishes will forever be measured against, well - the Sphinx is now a VERY close 2nd. It was the end of the season... More

Highly recommend this restaurant if you are in Fira, Santorini. We enjoyed one of the best salads ever! Butter lettuce, avocado from Crete and yummy warm Gorgonzola dressing. Not your typical greek salad. These people work hard to provide excellent service with a smaller, and delicious food. Go!

We dined here on the recommendation of Pavlos from Adamant Suites where we were staying and it was great. The view was amazing. Pavlos had managed to score us a great table. The staff were very helpful, offering to take photos for us. A note, it was really windy and little chilly and when the sun goes down it is... More
