Great view!

We chose this place for the view, can't get too much higher then this spot with a full view of Fira right near the cable cars. Good meal at affordable price.

We visited Santorini Greece on a 7 day NCL cruise . Zafora's restaurant is just outside the cable car entrance at the top of the lift and had an amazing view of our ship below and at sunset we found this to be a great place to view our ship and take pictures of the "memorable" sunset that everyone speaks...

Food was terrible. We were still eating our starter when the main arrived. Chicken was horrible seemed like not cooked well and the chicken was soaked in sauce which was very liquid. I did not eat the chicken but no one asked me why! Do not go as the visit will ruin part of your holiday.

Apparently you have to give at least one star on trip advisor but it doesnt even deserve that! Simply awful! Staff not greek (albanian i think) and totally unhelpful! Food inedible and clearly pre prepared warmed up rubbish! Refused to eat it and therefore refused to pay and was verbally abused when we left, if you do one thing whilst... More

The view is breath-taking and nearly impossible to match in the island, and it's by far the best thing in this restaurant. The place has some sort of fast-food service Every entrance of the restaurant has a greeter to get as many customers as possible, and will try to direct them to poor viewing spots. After having the customers seated... More

Me and my girlfriend were attracted by a poster hanging outside to reserve a table and went in to reserve for another day since we had plans for that evening. In 5 minutes we wished we haven't... Firstly we were greeted and asked to come in, but when we said we need a table for another day the waiter became... More

Visited Santorini back in May 2013 with my boyfriend. We were looking for a place to eat, found this restaurant and we were not dissappointed. Loved the food, the location of course and the service (I guess the service will depend on how busy it is... as we went in May, the island and the restaurant were not that busy... More

Zafora is well positioned. Has a beautiful sunset view but is priced accordingly. You pay a premium of at least 30% for the position. The value for money is not worth it but the view certainly is. We ate a wide selection of food and all were very average - nothing spectacular even the local fava speciality. If you are... More
