Try the stuffed Calamari!

Recommended by our Villa as a great place to watch the sunset and with excellent food - so good the first time we returned ( a big plus from us!). Nowhere on Caldera with a view is cheap but this was good value to money, and the service was brilliant. On our second visit we got moved to a better... read more

My boyfriend and I just love sea food and we ordered mix sea food(shrimps, octopus and calamari) for 2... More

My friends and I decided to have our meal at Fanari Restaurant, and it was one of the best decisions we made during our trip! The view was simply breath taking and the delicious food complemented the mood. The three of us ordered separate meals and drinks and I had the spaghetti Bologneze. It was a little expensive, but worth... More

Although the waitstaff and view at Fanari were lovely, with one of the waiters going out of his way to seat us at a table on the balcony with a spectacular sunset view even though the table was reserved, my friend and I both woke up the morning after our meal with awful food poisoning from the seafood risotto we...

To say that the view is amazing would be a complete understatement! I wasn't expecting to overlook such wonderful scenery while enjoying a really delicious meal. The restaurant itself was busy without being too overbearing and the food had been well prepared. I opted for a seafood spaghetti which wouldn't normally be my favourite but I'd desperately needed a change... More

There are countless restaurants located in this area that are not reeked of donkey poop. There were flies everywhere and the waiters saw us struggle with them without offering us to switch our seats until we demanded to. They were also forgetful, we only ordered 3 dishes along with 3 drinks during an off-peak hour. The food here was also... More

The views are amazing! After walking up we were very happy to sit here looking at the Aegean Sea whilst enjoying some good food. The portions were large and the food was fresh, we had a mixed fish platter, grilled aubergine, salad (which was huge), meatballs and chicken skewers. The green salad with feta and egg was the best dish... More

how does this place have good reviews, i don't know! The views after the sunset are extraordinary but that's it, the food was poor and i cannot embellish it. My son had a souvlaki and i ordered a vegetarian risotto which might have well been a cucumber salad, it just didn't taste like anything. Even the souvlaki was terrible. Better... More

We went here for a lunch meal - I got stuffed peppers and tomatoes and my partner got a chicken salad. The food was good, the views were stunning however the service was poor. There was one man working the entire of the restaurant and hence the service was very slow and it was frustrating (we even had to ask... More

Watching the sunset while enjoying the great food scores a 5 in my opinion. The food is delicious and the prices are reasonable. I would go back there over and over again.
