Great cocktails

The cocktails here are great, the view is stunning, relaxed atmosphere, but old-fashioned decoration. Friendly staff

When you come to Santorini, you always have a drink or two here. When your friends are coming to Santorini, you always take them here. Always nice, always quite, always relaxing, although sometimes no table available. But always champagne with strawberry!

Nice and relaxing music, good drinks and a perfect view. The perfect spot to enjoy the sunset while having a chill glass of wine. One of the best places in Fira!

After many years without visiting Santorini, we rushed to Franco's Bar, so full of lovely memories of the past visits. Yes, it was past, and past, in many cases, shall not be revisited. And, sadly, that was the case. During many years, I told all my friends to visit Franco's Bar and enjoy unbelievable drinks, a heaven's atmosphere and unforgettable... More

Went to Franco's for a cocktail and to watch the sunset. The chairs were so relaxing and the cocktails although expensive were excellent. The service wasn't the friendliest but you're there to watch the beautiful sunset anyway.

cocktails were awesome, food was lovely and the classical music was nice and calm. Walking down into the bar was really nice from the upstairs hustle and bustle on the main street.

There are two Franco's in Santorini - one in Fira, the other in Pyrgos. The one in Fira (the island's capital sounds great from the the reviews - but we didn't visit); Franco's in Pyrgos is specatacular - a bit of a hike up the narrow streets to the top of Pyrgos (no vehicle access) but when you arrive it...

The first time we visitet Franco's bar was 5 years ago. Meanwhile Franco's bar has lost a little bit of this exclusivity, what we like and what we prefer. Drinks, Food, service was erverything ok, but Francos "was" a member of "the world's Best Bars, and I can understand that we did'nt find this Bar in the "Best-Bars-List" I hope... More
