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

This restaurant has a good view of the caldera but others have better. Service is polite and friendly. However, this was the only place in Fira where, during a six day stay, we had a meal which was less than excellent. I would not recommend eating here.

I have to admit that we were fortunate to have gotten an extraordinary day to be visiting Santorini in the first place, so to have the opportunity to sit on a rooftop restaurant on a sunny and 80 degree day was almost a must. Zafora could certainly deliver on that, with a view of both the caldera itself, some fun... More

Just got back from a dream-like holiday in Santorini with my fiancee and a couple of friends. It was as beautiful as expected. At the top of the bulk of Fira town centre, occupying a prime location is Zafora. It's hard to miss, and has great views over the caldera. These are views we did not get to enjoy. After... More
