If you go to Santorini you must visit this place. The food is amazing, great service and very romantic location. Make reservations as this is a very popular restaurant

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

Unfortunately there was nothing that we liked.. Food was bland, unpleasant at times (you dont want broken seashells in your pasta), service unprofessional and expensive.

The restaurant is a more upscale option for Fira. The food is more creative, and they take more time with the presentation. The quality was very high, and the caldera views were of course very nice. It is an expensive place, even by Fira standards. But for a special night out, it is definitely worthwhile.

Really soulless and very over priced. The food was akin to a food court restaurant. The service was rushed and I personal and we left feeling let down

We were disappointed by this restaurant. Of the places we ate in Santorini this was the poorest. Nice table on the deck overlooking the crater and water. Friendly service but the food was just mediocre, certainly did not like up to recommendations
