The views were spectacular beyond words. The location is amazing beyond words. The cocktails were ok but well worth the visit for the view alone

We came here for a late night (11pm) drink after dinner! The lounge chairs and view are the two best things. Drinks are way over priced and service was terrible. We enjoyed the view for 20 minutes while we waited for our drinks and were never asked if we wanted another for about 20 minutes after we finished our last... More

We enjoyed sunset at Franco's one evening with reclining canvas chairs and classical music, which was nice. Drink/wine prices are above average. There was no service beyone delivery of the wine and when we paid the bill, the bar cashier lobbied heavily for a tip, which we supplied. We later found out from locals that servers throughout Greece are paid... More

The view was amazing and while we waited on a table we relaxed in some very comfortable lounge chairs. The Food was wonderful and the wait staff was always available to serve. We will return to Greece and to Franco's

An amazing view with a delious cocktail! I loved the strawberry daiquiri sooo delious :) The prices are not that cheap though it is worth each euro. Go before 5pm to stay on the deckchairs with the amazing view. Loved it ❤️

After having visited the one in Pyrgos we were delighted to find Franco's at Fira. Breath taking scenery, a great atmosphere with classical music and the most outstanding sunset view. We only had pre dinner cocktails.

Went here one evening after the sunset so didn't get the full affect. However not sure we would go back. The drinks were okay and the sun loungers were good but there are other cocktail bars in the Caldera to try.

It's hard not to feel a bit melodramatic ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the sunset for an hour. Franco's leans into it by blasting dramatic clasical music perfectly timed to the sunset. The view is amazing, the cocktails are ok.
