Beautiful view, cocktails were very alcoholic :) and staff very friendly. Went there for a little break with our private tour guide.

If you have not yet figured it out yet; 1,000's of people flock to OIA for the Sunset every night. Franco's is slightly off the beaten path but could be marked as a "Tourist Trap". However the same labeled could be applied to OIA in general. Anyway - VERY pricy cocktails (at least they are big) and reasonably marked up... More

Franco's is one of the best bar to watch the sunset in Fira. We enjoyed our experience at Franco's so much we went twice in a week! The view at sunset from the lounge chairs is amazing and very relaxing. The classical music brings a great touch to the sunset view. Champagne is good and not too expensive but good... More

This place has been some time ago on the list of the best bars in the world and therefore is a trademark of the posh side of Santorini so after passing by thousands of times, I finally decided one day to check their famous classical playlist and let myself surprised by the drinks menu that I've been so told about....

Walked past this place and was drawn by the comfy looking seats overlooking the caldera and the pretty candlelight on all the tables. The classical music was a nice change from the other restaurants and cafés nearby. The cocktails were ordered were tasty, though more expensive here than at other locations which had just as nice a view. Great spot... More

It's a very nice place to watch the sunset, you can have your drink with a selection of cheese or sea food, the food is fair. The setting is beautiful but we were really disturbed by the bad smell

Franco's in Fira is a legendary place which is still going strong.I have visited it many times over the years and the service remains at high levels despite the fact that during sunset the place is always crowded.Nice music ( although not always classical any more-unfortunately ) and atmosphere plus the view which is superb! However the atmosphere started being... More

Definitely the place for an aperitif and to watch the sun go down. It is delightful walking up to Franco's in Pygros (as opposed to the on in Fira). Wonderful view from the mountain top and Pygros is just idyllic

What a lovely place to sit and watch the famous sunset! I had a delicious Mojito and the music is a lovely touch. We visited twice in a week's holiday and would highly recommend.

If you wish to enjoy your drink at one of the best bars in the world in terms of view, go to Franco's. It is atmospheric, with wonderful music and a view to die for, Never mind the prices, it is well worth a visit.
