The only reason I am not giving 5stars is the high cost of the drinks. It is a great bar with kind staff great cocktails and drinks and the best view of the caldera. It has lounge chairs and you can lay down and enjoy the view! The music is relaxing and the atmosphere absolutely romantic! Definitely go for a... More

Franco's is a relaxed and romantic bar with a lovely terrace overlooking the Caldera. Classical music creates a very special atmosphere. The bar is famous for its cocktails and they were definitely tasty. The prices are slightly higher than the adjacent bars but the atmosphere makes up for it.

The view is very good, but that can be had elsewhere for less cost. If you are drinking cocktails, only stay for one as the 2nd one never tasted the same, either watered down or smaller measures. We were served a drink we were told was a cosmopolitan. it wasn't. It was different from every other one I have ever... More

Great cocktails, sunset, classical music & blankets when it gets chilly. It's like you are on the edge of heaven... definitely worth popping in for an espresso martini.

Laid back, friendly and enjoyable place to go before dinner in Fira. We at at one of the tables but if you really want to enjoy the sunset, you can sit at deckchairs sipping your cocktails as the sun goes down. Magic.

Absolutely the nicest bar I have ever been to. The atmosphere created by the view and the classical music is something amazing. Perfect place to go to after dinner. The prices are slightly high, I paid 9 euros for a glass of champagne and my boyfriend had a whiskey for a bit over 10 euros. The service was good and... More

Positioned on the cliffs of the caldera, its a perfect spot to watch the sunset. The cocktails are pricey but for a once off experience its lovely! The staff are friendly the atmosphere is calm with the classical music in the background & its overall a relaxing evening out before dinner. The evening does get nippy but blankets are provided...

Maybe the most romantic bar you will ever see, perched high on a cliff above the Santorini caldera, with wonderful local wines and the accompaniment of classic music for some of the world's greatest sunsets.

Great place to see the sunset on Caldera, is one the most popular bar in Thira. Prices are high, cocktails are good but not great, but the view with classical music is something you'll never forget. A mention to greekdriver, made with ouzo and orange juice. Better to go before June or after September, otherwhise is really crowded, with few... More
