Description: In 2011, the creators of Koukoumavlos Restaurant in Fira and Nichteri Restaurant in Kamari, joined their forces. ASSYRTICO Wine Restaurant was born on the top floor of a 60’s mansion in Fira, overlooking the famous Caldera.The menu offers alternative and innovative suggestions of the Greek Cuisine, using mainly local and selected products from around Greece. The same philosophy inspired the restaurant’s wine list. A wide variety of wines from Santorini, the rest of Greece and the whole world can be explored in Assyrtico’s unique Wine Cellar!

“Romantic and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

The food here was excellent. We both had veggie risotto which was very nice, full of flavours.
All the courses are of a high standard. The service here is excellent with friendly attentive waiting staff.
The view is really good as you can look down at the bustling street below.
Very romantic setting and a lot of space not cramped like some restaurants in Fira.

“A perfect meal from beginning to end”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We went for a dinner and had an amazing dining experience. Our waiter was extremely knowledgable about our wine choices and our meal could not have been better. The meal was part food and part tour as he gave us an education of the top wineries on the island with recommendations for tours. And, at the end of the night he gave us a tour of their wine cellar. Just a wonderful night!

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We stopped here for lunch based on a recommendation from one of the locals - and boy was she spot on. This was probably the best restaurant we have eaten at on our whole trip to the islands. Make sure to get the calamari - it was fresh, light, and tasty. The Greek salad was the best I've had and the service was outstanding.

“The view alone is worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Pricey, and the service is iffy if they are busy, but the view alone is worth the visit.
Food is good, service is slow, but the atmosphere and view are spectacular.

“Up-market feel, nothing truly differentiates from competition”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

An up-market feel compared to many other restaurants in Santorini, with professional service. Relaxed atmosphere. Typical Greek menu - loved the rather unhealthy tomato fritters! Good selection of reasonably priced Greek wine. Homemade bread was disappointing. First restaurant here to not offer a complimentary drink or dish. Enjoyable evening if otherwise a touch in unmemorable.
