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

This was one of the dearest dining spots we tried this June. But we knew it wasnt cheap - and deliberately picked it for our last night this time round. It was approximately €50 euros per head. Pros: fabulous views (more so, the more south you sit on their first floor balcony), a more imaginative menu than most, very very... More

Assyrtico offers great views, attentive service, and exceptional food. Given the upscale environment, the friendly staff offered excellent recommendations for our meal. The balcony offers a beautiful view of the caldera and of the main street in Fira. The salmon we had here was some of the best we have ever had! Make sure to also try the Yellow Donkey... More

Assyrtico was recommended to us so we booked sight unseen. It proved to be an excellent choice. Great service, very nice food ( I recommend the lamb !), a large choice of local & Greek wines, and a view of get Culdera from our balcony seats. A great night all round. Happy to recommend Assyrtico to all.

Went there on a friend's recommendation. The menu description were attempting at the entrance of the restaurant. Though the bread was bland but the starters and appetisers (such as grilled white eggplant, saganaki, salad, fava beans) were good and we were all looking forward to our main course. We ordered pork, lamb shank and pasta to share. What's a disappointment!... More

The restaurant is up some stairs with a breathtaking unfettered view of ocean and islands. We sat and watched while... More

This isn't a traditional Greek restaurant. This takes Greek staples and makes them into great food. There was lots of feta, tomatoes, grilled meat and fish but presented in a modern way. We also had a lovely bottle of sparkling wine. The restaurant is quiet and has both a terrace and equally lovely indoor section. Perfect for a romantic meal... More
