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

Spent every night here in Santorini watching the sunset, drinking Bellini's and listening to classical music. I will miss this place and was my favorite spot in all of Greece

Great concept: low lounge type chairs to watch the sunset. Order a drink. View; really great at Sunset Drinks: they have my Moscato di Asti!! Music: Opera which suits the scene and vibe. Atmosphere: those in lounge chairs are pretty quiet looking at the sunset..., very very nice!!

Great way to spend an hour or so in one of the hammock chairs. Just had drinks but very enjoyable ones.

Similar to many of the bars along Fira's cliff side strip, Francos is packed at sunset at around 8:20pm. We booked a front row deck chair and enjoyed our cocktails whilst listening to perfectly times music and nibbling on some nuts. The bar staff leave you alone and do not detract from this beautiful sunset location. Worth a trip!
