“Great views over the caldera”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This restaurant is a hidden gem, located upstairs in the town of Fira. We had lunch here looking over the Caldera full of boats, if the sun is out it's a beautiful location. The food is traditional Greek fare, very tasty and big portions.

“Excellent food with an amazing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

I have been here a few times over the years and every time it has been a great meal and an enjoyable dining experience.

The menu is primarily Greek classics with a few Italian and French inspired dishes. The prices are quite reasonable, especially given the prime location overlooking the caldera. If you can snag a table at the edge, you'll get to enjoy the best of the amazing view with your dinner.

The staff are friendly and helpful, always willing to make a suggestion if you have difficulty choosing from the many tempting options on the menu.

“Mouth watering food and superb wine. A place not to miss.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

The most amazing food I have seen and eaten. The service was friendly, Greek and knew their wines and food. One of the best places to eat in Greece or even to drink. Breaking taking views of the islands and volcanos. If u don't come u will not get the full Greek experience. - Porsche Grace

“Memorable, yet simple, meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We had such a lovely meal at Ampelos. My husband had a whole grilled cuddle fish. I had a greek salad, wonderful bread and a glass of wine. Everything about this place was divine. We were there on a quiet day when the weather and the view were spectacular. Everything we were served was delicious and we were very well tended to!! When we talk about our trip we always mention Ampelos!!
