Wow! 5 stars all the way!

I googled best sunset restaurant in Fira, and this one came up. Arrived at 7.15 and there was only one other couple. Seated by a lovely elderly gentleman who was outstanding all night. The meal was incredible (we had a 2 course banquet for 35 euro each, and it was amazing) and then there was the... read more

One waiter, 40+ people, ants all over the table, waiting for mediocre food for an hour...just avoid, otherwise you will get disappointed

We always like to visit a few restaurants when we are away and decide which one is the best, so we go back there last night. On our recent trip to Santorini, this was the one. There is no doubt you pay a premium for the views offered by some of the restaurants in Santorini and this is no exception,... More

The restaurant is perched on the edge at the far end o Fira. It has a large outdoor and indoor dining area. We ate indoors as it was drizzling rain. For appetizers: Fried Feta in Phyllo with carmelized tomatoes and sesame seeds .....

Old fashioned charm, service and dishes served on a large terrace area with some good views (request in advance). Due to its size, this is a great place for groups. The downside to the size is that it can feel pretty empty and quiet, at least it did on the night we went with only four tables taken. The food... More

We booked Ellis for our wedding meal as we got married in santorini and I'm so glad we did... We didn't eat in it beforehand but I checked reviews and the views were amazing from the terraces so we went for it... They had a set menu for 25 or 35 euros which looked nice so we went for that...everywhere... More

Ellis Restaurant was very close to our hotel and even though we like to eat very 'local', we decided to try it. We were so pleased we ate there two nights. The service was fabulous, views spectacular (even though we had to eat indoors due to a windstorm and some rain), and the chef is just great! We had a... More

This restaurant is next to our hotel and has a fantastic view any time of the day. It was on a recommended list from friends so we gave it a try. We are very glad we did. We had two fish dishes both of which were delicious. Our waiter, Vagelis, offered great service and recommendations. We had a wonderful time... More
