We decided to eat here and watch the final game of the World Cup after passing by earlier in the day and made small talk with the maître D outside. It was a late night meal so we ate light and had a few drinks. All were good and service was friendly. As far as people complaining about the bread... More

Bad service, and the food was awful! My mussels were very chewing and fishy taste! The only positive thing was the view.

Our final night in Santorini was supposed to be memorable but not for poor service and bad food. We reserved a table by the edge to enjoy the amazing sunset but on arrival the waiter decided to move us as it was too windy, not a good start. Some time after being seated we eventually got service and ordered our... More

Brilliant sunset views from here. Very good service, and not rushed. May be different in peak season. The meal was delicious, pork medallions with honey, sesame and vinsanto wine sauce which came with rice and fries (E13.50). My husband had grilled salmon also excellent. Prices were very reasonable. We liked the food and the view so much that we came... More

Typical Greek taverna style restaurant. The starters were good, but could have been presented better. I had Moussaka for main and whilst good the base was burnt. My partner had the chicken mojito and this was a bit of a let down, served with coleslaw, rice and chips. Don't be offended when they bring you the bill before you have... More

This was great food and reasonably priced. We had a great view and the service was spot on. It is right near the donkey exit where they come up the hill.

I was also surprised by some of the negative reviews as I had a lovely dining experience at this restaurant. It's close to the cable car and offers great views of Thira and the caldera. I had read the menu while passing by earlier on and I was pleasantly surprised that the prices were decent, so I decided to come... More

I preface this review by saying I'm a little surprised with all of the negative reviews for this restaurant, but, to each his own - everyone will have their personal opinions. I visited Zafora after sunset one evening without having reviewed their menu. I was surprised once seated how many options they had, it was a little overwhelming! I was... More
