The new location of Ellis Restaurant is really idyllic,since it is in Fira but away from the noisy part of the area and just opposite of the volcano and in the mid of Aegean Sea!!An environment even romantic for you and your partner,but suitable also for companies with friends.The food is delicious and there is a big variety between Greek...

My girlfriend and I chanced upon this restaurant for a late lunch after we got lost walking from the bus station to our villa in Fira. The meal turned out of be one of the best I had in Santorini! After a long flight, we both had strong but flavourful Greek coffees to freshen up, followed by the amazing tomato... More

Although at the very end of Fira, this restaurant has great views and makes it an ideal place for a quiet meal. They have a vast range of Greek dishes - less expensive than other restaurants in the centre.

The Ellis restaurant is on the caldera rim and has great views. The service is fine and the food as well. We had very nice baked Santorini cheese, fresh seabass (filleted on the table), lamb with cheese and vegetables and a nice pannacotta. It is a bit more expensive than other places but very good.

This place is located in Fira town, on a beautiful hill overlooking the Calera sea. It has some of the best Santorini fritters I've eaten and delicious seafood platters to feed a family of four! Don't expect the seafood to be cooked in fancy sauces or overloaded with herbs and spices. It's cooked in a very simple, but delicious way.... More

My husband & I recently stopped by at sunset for a drink & to enjoy the view from the terrace at Ellis Restaurant. As the staff were very friendly & welcoming & the menu looked delicious & reasonably priced, we decided to return later that evening for a meal. The weather was windy & cold so we ate inside this...

The one thing that is guaranteed to put up the cost of any dinner in Fira is that the restaurant has a terrific caldera view. However, its worth paying the extra at least once during your stay on the island of Santorini and this restaurant is certainly a very good place to joy the wonderful views and enjoy special mediterranean...

My wife and I have been staying at the neighboring Tzekos Villas for the past three days. Our first day, we stopped by for a quick bite. I had the Santorini salad (cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, anchovy and a wonderful yogurt dressing) and my wife had a bowl of Gelato. Along with the 1/4 liter of local wine, the tab was... More
