This place is so high up the hill that the views will take your breath while you enjoy a fine meal. The food was delicious and at a reasonable price. The waiter turned out to be an outstanding character. He speaks 10 languages and is a charming man. This is the best restaurant we visited in Fira.

Stopped here for the view on our last night in Santorini. It was cold and windy and the waiter turned on the gas heater for us. We enjoyed an excellent wine with our quality meal before admiring the sunset without the sun! Still a wonderful view and experience. We received excellent service and advice. Has good wifi.

A local at one of the near by shops recommended this place to us on our first day in Santorini. Hands down we had the best breakfast in Santorini. You must get the saganaki, it's a crime if you don't. I can still taste it. Everywhere we went, we compared the saganaki to the one at Zafora and nothing else... More

We enjoyed a stop at Zafora before we took the cable car ride back down to the ship. Our view was beautiful. The outdoor seating was enjoyable. While service was a little slow, we enjoyed drinks and a snack. It was a perfect ending to a perfect day.

My wife and I had the good fortune to visit this beautiful island while on a Mediterranean cruise. After some shopping, we stumbled across this taverna and thoroughly enjoyed views, food and ouzo. Our server put up with my attempt to order our lunch in Greek before bring us a spectacular meal. I have had the opportunity to eat greek... More

We ate lunch here recently while on a Mediterranean cruise. Zofora is conveniently located near the cable car station. The views of the harbor below are outstanding. We had the hot and the cold appetizer sampler plates. Both were excellent! Our server was very good; polite, friendly and very helpful with our selections. Our food came out quickly and was... More

Went here a few times just for drinks. It is a great place to people watch and see the donkeys coming back up the steps from the port. The cocktails are much better value at half the price of Franco's bar but just as strong and still with a great view. It's a good place for a drink but service... More
