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

I have been going to Santorini since 1995 and unfortunately Franco's remains as old as it used to be back then. Yes the location is amazing and the sunbeds make the difference, but it is unforgivable to have the same menu as you used to have 15 years ago and even worse, the common cocktails such as cosmopolitan, tequila sunrise...

A visit to Santorini is not complete without a cocktail at Franco's Bar while watching the sunset. A popular destination to take in the view while also relaxing with the background classical music. As others have already indicated, you can probably get cheaper cocktails elsewhere but we enjoyed every minute of the couple of nights we spent indulging in sipping... More

Wow, what a view Francos has.We sat at the point where there are three tables. The view overlooking the caldera is insane. If you can get a seat here for the sunset, I highly recommend it. Drinks are expensive but worth the view. A great experience.
