On the plus side the food was good, and the view magnificent. Unfortunately the experience was ruined by the terrible service. We weren't sure who our waiter was, we were served by at least three. They got the starters wrong, then brought three main courses (we were a party of four) before we had finished the starter. After several requests... More

Having the very first dinner in Santorini, while enjoying the sunset. Not better place for this. We liked our dishes, particularly our grilled sardines! Superb! The grilled fish for two people was good, except that we did not like much the rice and boiled potatoes...as side dishes we expected something more than that. The beer was served chilled and the...

I visited the restaurant end of August during the high season with family and friends from Moldova. the food was exquisite our waiter polite and friendly, the environment was pleasant and lovely. The view was breathtaking as the restaurant is in the middle of the caldera of Santorini giving panoramic view of the island side to side. Thanks a lot... More

We had an excellent fish platter here and, in spite of criticisms about the staff in other reviews, we found them to be attentive and helpful. Also the comments about the smell from the donkey trail were completely exaggerated and it was very enjoyable watching them wind their way up the trail.

This place never fails to impress. I have been eating at this restaurant on every trip to santorini over the past 5 years. The food and service are of an exceptional standard. The owner and staff are polite and go out of their way to ensure the customer is looked after.

The food is delicious and very well presented and the view is absolutely stunning!!!! I could spend the whole day there just sipping on an ouzo sprite and watching the people pass by or the... More

It's easy to get ripped off in a beautiful place like Fira when you're looking for somewhere with a view. Fanari has the benefit of not only having a breathtaking view but also being very reasonably priced - we ended up going back because nowhere else even came close to it. The lamb shank and stuffed calamari are delicious as... More
