We went in Fanari because they told us that we will try the best traditional tomato balls. This plate has been favourite in many places notonly in Santorini. Many chefs try to make thembetter(?) . They put on cheese or basil. Thisis not bad, but when you have a very prosperous recipe and when you be in Santorini why do... More

We celebrated our wedding anniversary in Fanari. They had made a beautiful table for us with magnificent view. Our food was delicious, the waiters were very friendly and meticulous. For the end they had made a beautiful complimentary cake for our anniversary. Thank you for everything.

It was very pleasant to visit this restaurant with the stunning view and friendly stuff. We visited Santorni with cruise ship and we choose Fanari casually. We enjoyed a perfect meal with panoramic view of the caldera. When gave us the check we had a nice surprise' acomplimentary traditional dessert.

An excellent spot in Fira. Delicious food, very good service and an amazing view. We had for welcome spinach pie. The green salad was my favourite with a delicious dressing. Tomato balls, eggplant with greek cheeses aslo very good. For main course the lamb kleftiko and pasta marinara were excellent. In the end gave us dessert and local wine vinsanto.

We went to Fanari twice while in Santorini, the waiters were very friendly and happy. One night we shared a seafood platter it was magnificent, the other night we tried traditional Greek food, also superb. Sometimes we would get a waft of bad smell from the donkey trail, but it wasn't too bad the food and service outweighed that.

We enjoyed our dinner three times in Fanari. The view was spectacular, the service very good and the food delicious. The last night the owner and the staff thanks us and gave a small fig marmalade where they had made in the rastaurant. We tasted when we return at the home and it was delicious. Thanks for everything.

Outstanding restaurant with reasonable prices. In this restaurant we found everything that we wanted. An amazing view, a magic sunset, friendly waiters and delicious food. Octopus meze, tomato balls, lamb kleftiko and grilled sea bream were our favourites. Excellent cooked with the best prices in the town.
