The weather was rather windy when we came to Sphinx so we were sat inside which we were initially dissapointed with but the view alone was worth going to Sphinx for! Our starters and mains were delicious and after our mains I went down to the Balcony area to take some pictures where my partner proposed! I thank it for... More

Although pricy this place is absolutely excellent. The food was delicious and non-Greek wine was available which made my evening!

Amazing restaurant in FIRA with such a special relaxing atmosphere, very friendly and helpful staff, delicious and beautiful dishes, good selection of wine and champagne. Try Greek musaka and cheesecake, as well as spaghetti with seafood. Come for the sunset and chill out. It is one of those places which has its own unique atmosphere, which is so hard to... More

Nice restaurant with fresh seafood, prepared in such an unremarkable way at tourist trap prices. With a good chef this place could be awesome. The atmosphere and friendly staff coupled with some delicious local wine will make this a lovely time, until the check arrives. The views are absolutely breathtaking and makes it all worthwhile

Fantastic setting on the caldera in Fira, with really friendly and helpful staff which went some way to offsetting the disappointing food. The sauces with the octopus starter and the lamb cutlets main were over-thickened with too much cornflower and overwhelmed the dishes. Unfortunately, the fish souvlaki was spoilt by stringy cubes of what I think was monk fish --... More

The Sphinx Restaurant was an oasis of tranquility on a hot Fira afternoon. This outdoor restaurant overlooks the Agean Sea and many of the food items are grown or made on their farm. The seafood pasta dishes were light and savory: the pasta is homemade. The wine selection is very good and the homemade dessert was very delicious. We loved... More

Family friendly restaurant and very flexible with serving for children. We ordered a selection of Greek tapas and salads which delighted the taste buds and gave us a real traditional Greek food experience. All this while lookng outof the open area dining area to the Greek cyclades with it's islands and oceans surrounding us. Certainly a memorable meal.

Staff was very accommodating as we showed up 30 minutes early for our reservation and asked to be moved inside because of the high winds that night. They also seemed help others for the same reason although there was only limited covered seating while about half was uncovered. The menu was very extensive which included quite a few seafood options.... More
