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

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.
