Pre Wedding Dinner

Breath taking views! I was part of a large group which can't be easy for any restaurant but the staff were quick and attentive, the food was delicious and wine kept flowing. They allowed us all to stay late after dinner and we enjoyed a few to many ouzos!

Just off the beaten track overlooking the Caldera. Charming understated service. Food was a little more sophisticated that the standard taverna fare. Once you have the caldera view it usually means you are paying higher prices but they have a set menu for €25 or €35 which includes a glass of wine. For the location this is excellent value. And...

At the very end of Fira, in the quiet part of town because tourists don't wander that far off. Ellis is a gem: overlooking the caldera, sunset over the opposite island, very friendly waitors. They offer two three/four cours menus, at respectively 25 and 35 euro, each including a glass of house wine. The quality of the food was excellent,... More

We had a nice meal at Ellis with good food and service but felt it was somewhat overpriced compared to other restaurants of a similar/better standard.

This would have to be the most underrated restaurants in Fira. We loved every second, beautiful food, great service and lovely views. A must try and deserves to be a lot busier than it is. Gorgeous - a must place to eat.

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 view - just like... More
