Worth it for the view

Get here early or make a booking for a table with an amazing view of the sunset. The restaurant has three levels so plenty of options. The grilled fish was amazing but the seafood risotto was just average without the generous serve of seafood I've come to expect in Europe. Service was on the slow... read more

This restaurant is well located with amazing panoramic views. We visited here for lunch and whilst the food was nothing special, it was reasonably priced. Service was attentive and friendly.

While me and my fiance were vacationing in Santorini I wanted to find a special place to take her for a special dinner on our last day there. I asked around and found some locals that recommended we give Fanari a try, and what an amazing experience we had! The view was breathtaking! I had the stuffed calimari and my... More

We chose Fanari at the recommendation of our hotel receptionist. We were pleasantly surprised - the location was superb, the service was excellent, the food was authentic and the price was reasonable. The many layers of small terraces that this restaurant conists of means every table is perfect. A relaxing evening meal, watching the donkeys on the old port steps,... More

Beautiful location! Beautiful food! Beautiful atmosphere! The food was also fantastic. I got the Chicken with Pepper with the Feta Cheese Sauce and it was so delicious for it's reasonable price. Despite the restaurant being very busy, the awesome waiter we had was very friendly and put together, making sure you were doing okay at just the right moments. With... More

In some of the Greek resorts the food on the main drags can be a bit hit or miss; you never know whether you are going to get great food or some limp oily meze. This place is an exception. We'd been on Ios and expected Santorini to be a bit more touristic, but the first night we were in... More

I love tasty dishes. Whenever I travel, I always look for the best restaurant and when a local guide recommended Fanari Restaurant, I decided to give it a try. Often, if I don't like a food, I leave it and will never come to the restaurant. But, at Fanari, I got hook up (so to say). Oh! I love sea... More

As a vegan I am little picky when it comes to dishes. Fanari Restaurant did an awesome job. We ordered 2 different dishes (me and my fiance - and she is not vegan) and we got served in less than 15 minutes. My fiance ordered a seafood platter and I've got a pizza margarita which was much better than the... More
