Perfectly located

We visited Zafora twice during our stay in Fira. Once for a snack and then on our last night for dinner. The head waiter remembered us from before and gave us the same table as our first visit which was the best in the house and a nice touch we thought. The restaurant has one of the best views of... read more

Great view... More

Great sea views from the second level. Greek favorites, of course, but also international cuisine. Free wi-fi with password, which was nice to check in. Just steps from cable car down to the old port.

"Zafora Lamb" was the best lamb I have eaten in Greace. Located in Fira Santorini Island near cable cart top station. Bonus is a beautiful sunset and after that beutifull view of Fira at night.

This is the first poor rating I have issued, not a decision I take lightly. The welcome on arrival often sets the tone of the visit, so would have appreciated a smile and a hello, but received neither. The view of the sea, however, was lovely. We shared a Greek salad which was perfectly good, my main course was a... More

We were headed back to the ship to catch a tender and decided to hold back as it was about to be sunset. We snagged a table at Zafora, ordered some stuffed grape leaves, cheese pie and wine and settled in for the show. It was something I'll always remember. Absolutely gorgeous!! The food and service were excellent and when... More

The grilled chicken was excellent, not being a seafood fan, myself and my girlfriend enjoyed the menu as there were other options. the waiters were polite and humorous, the view, like much of Santorini was stunning, and for those that like to people-watch, the restaurant sits a...

The view is what brought us in before we descended the cable car back to the cruise ship. We wanted to watch the sunset and it was spectacular. Service was a little slow to start with but once the order was finally taken it did speed up a bit. Staff were busy with sunset being peak time. Drinks were icy... More

Me and my girlfriend went here for a meal after visiting Fira for the day. We got drawn in by the wide menu choice and the potentially good view... Unfortunately, as soon as we walked in our expectations were deflated. The waiters barely acknowledged us and just said "choose a table". We were given menus and during our time deciding... More
