Great food and views

The best moussaka we had in our trip! Zafora lamb is also delicious and the view of the caldera are one of the best. Also they serve one of the coldest beers in town

When we got there, the waiter was friendly and helped us out. The view was incredible, one of the best we've seen from a restaurant in Santorini. But the food was mediocre. The tzatziki was bad, which I've never seen in Greece before, and the mussels were full of chips from the shells. There are too many excellent places to... More

We visited Zafora on the last day of our time in Santorini as a birthday celebration. The weather was a bit windy/cold but didn’t take away from the amazing views that this restaurant provided. Service was fast, pleasant and the food was delicious - especially the calamari ! The head waiter was just a little ‘over the top’ in his... More

In Fira , a picturesque town in Santorini ,it isn't hard to find a restaurant with a fantastic view. Zafora is just at the right place to enjoy the view of Fira town, the sunset, the sea, and Nea Kameni volcano, while drinking a cold beer, or having traditional Greek food. We had a late lunch there – or a... More

Arguably a restaurant with one of the best views during sunset in fira. It is located on the cliff of the village of fira and during sunset the scenes are breath taking. On the merit of its quality of food, I would give it a 3.5/5 but with the view and service I would add another 1 point and make... More

Situated in Fira overlooking the volcanic Caldera - BRILLIANT views overlooking Fira and Santorini, outstanding at sunset. Zafora offer great Greek food & drink at prices which are outstandingly low given their position - just great value. No ripoffs to be found here. The team, Timo, Ladi, Octavia & Foti are particularly friendly, knowledgeable & obliging - Timo, an absolute... More

Restaurants along the western cliff at Fira in Santorini tend to be expensive, some even ridiculously so. But this one has prices closer to those in town, e.g. a 500 ml beer costs 4,50 euros not 6. I had swordfish which was very good, and my partner had moussaka (Greek spelling from their receipt) which she also liked. The restaurant... More

A complementary Greek digestif added to the already great experience. We were sheltered from the wind and enjoyed a wonderful view of the Caldera.

This place has a great view, and a decent Santorini salad but the main dishes are absolutely garbage. Our moussaka looked like it came from a frozen diner and was barely warmed up. We could only stand to get half way through it. The vegetarian plate was a an oily mush of potato, zucchini and peppers. Don't be sucked in... More

We used this restaurant twice, once we were enticed in by a meet and greeter on the steps in Thira and the second because we wanted to go back. We had a light lunch of a gyros platter and salad and both very good at a reasonable price. Service was friendly and the views over the caldera great, could have... More
