We arrived with some new friends of ours and were hoping for something special...the views were fantastic- that is about it. The server seemed annoyed and had an attitude the whole evening...we wanted to start with a bottle or rose, cocktails and wine before ordering anything and he kept coming over literary ever 3 minutes asking us to hurry and...

We got the corner table with unimpeded views of the sunset, so pretty happy with that. For starters, I had the mussels in garlic and white wine. They had been steamed open just right and were tender. I only found one beard still attached (being picky here). Husband had the smoked salmon, also lovely. Mains, we had the lamb shank... More

Our first night in Santorini, we randomly selected the Sphinx. A lot of restaurants that have great views don't have the best food but that is not true of the Sphinx. We started with a wonderful cheese plate. Then had the vegetable risotto which was amazing. We also tried the swordfish with mussels in a white wine sauce. Absolutely delicious.... More

I recently arranged a welcome dinner for a Wedding welcome dinner at the Sphinx for 32 diners. Their ability to accommodate a custom menu in a Meze style for so many people was fantastic and very easy. The food was the best we ate on Santorini and the views were breathtaking. It was so good we returned again throughout our... More

What an experience!! I had the pleasure of eating here and it did not disappoint!! The staff were charming and efficient, the food made me want to shackle myself to the table and never leave! We had the artichoke for a starter and the lamb as a main... If you are in Santorini - this is a must!!!

What a great way to start our Santorini holiday with a romantic dinner with possibly the best view of the sunset in Fira. Enjoyed a beautiful duck with apricot sauce which was cooked well, would have been nice if the skin wad cooked a little bit more as it a little bit chewy. Partner enjoyed the traditional slow roasted lamb,... More
