On our last night in Santorini we had booked a restaurant across the island, but did not want to make the trek. We asked our lovely hotel manager about places nearby, and he recommended Assyrtico. After eating an abundance of Greek food (this was our 11th day in Greece) we were pleased to see a few traditional items with a... More

First of all this place lacks strongly in atmosphere. The service was really poor with fake smiles and sensation they want you to eat and leave ASAP . We felt so after two minutes and sorry we had not left! Many of the items in the menu were not available, the wine was poor and the food mediocre. The setting... More

We happened upon Assyrtico for sunset when we noticed the balcony. While the menu looked a little pricey, it had some enticing options, so we went for it. We were greeted by a server who came to the table and asked us if we'd like water, so we ordered some. He came again with the water, with no menu. So... More

This was a surprisingly good restaurant. We ate there twice during the holiday and were impressed both times. Its not overly "Greek" but it does have some greek food on the menu. Its not cheap, 90 euros for the two of us with a bottle of red wine (the one from Thrace is very nice). Lovely views from the front... More

I've dined here a few times with friends and have had a wonderful experience each time. Delicious rib eye and mushroom risotto is a must. Excellent service. The wine room is a pleasant bonus to it's already beautiful decor.

Came here two times: last year and this July during my stay on Santorini. I red about this restaurant in Food & Wine Magazine and was not disappointed. This is one of the newer restaurants in Fira. Both times I really loved the meal. Especially memorable was technique in preparation of fava – unexpected orange flavor and fresh topping of... More

Very friendly and attentive service, more classy than the usual Greek restaurant. The cuisine is also a tad more creative. We had excellent appetizers (that pushed the bill), and we opted for a modern style hamburger on pita bread and with home made ketchup. Very tasty. Excellent choices of wine, including a very good, fresh and vibrant local bubbly made... More

I visited this restaurant with my wife for dinner. Although this restaurant has a good reputation for the view of the sunset, the time we visited was around 21:30, and we could focus on enjoying the meals and the wine of the assyrtico. Each of us ordered 2 meals, and I loved the pasta with fish (salmon) egg. The sauce... More

We were visiting Fira and dropped in for some lunch. It was very very good. Our food was elegantly presented with some really interesting flavors that took local cuisine to a new level. Our server was attentive and helpful in our food selection. The friend zucchini and pastas were excellent. If we had been closer to Fira, I think we... More
