“classy atmosphere to watch the sunset”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Franco's has a great location in the cascade of little white houses in Fira. Spread across multiple levels, there are many different tables and seating styles that accommodate lots of different group sizes. On the night my friend and I were there, we were unfortunately only surrounded by extremely kissy couples so there wasn't much 'bar' atmosphere or interacting with other guests. Our cocktails were big and strong, though at 14 euros each, they better be. They were playing classical music in the background and the waiters were attentive but not overbearing.
I think this is great for a couple or a larger group (for couples get there early and snag two front row reclining chairs!) but for two single ladies looking to go out and meet people, maybe try somewhere else first.

“Be part of the caldera experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

If you walk the streets of Fira, you get a feeling of what the caldera atmosphere is like. If you sit at Franco's bar however, you yourself are in the heart of the magic and become part of it. Unforgettable.
