“great calamari”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2014

Ed stopped us on our walk along the clifftop as we were ready for a drink and a late lunch, we were glad he did. The greek salad was the best we had tasted , everything tasted so fresh, and the calamari were so good we came back 2 days later for some more! views are spectacular but the terraces do get windy but as the locals say, 'what do you expect we are a island in the middle of the sea!!'

“Very helpful and accommodating - fantastic food too!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2014

We went to Golden Sunset Cafe on the night before our wedding in August with about 25 family and friends. We had a private terrace for our group with superb views of the caldera. We arranged this the day before and the staff were incredibly helpful - they had extra tables brought in and created a special set menu for us. It was very affordable too. I would highly recommend this place and would like to say a huge thank you to the staff.

“The location is good, but the service is bad.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2014

My friends and I wanted to order cappuccino during the sunset because it was quite windy, and we wanted something hot. At first the waiter said they don't
provide coffee during that time, after that he said that they would provide it but added some sentence not so pleasent to us. If they think it is too cheap to just order a coffee to sit there, they should add a sentence on the menu like the minimum cost should be...

“Open to the wind, but WONDERFUL SOOF”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2014

If you don't mind a little of the wind, the Golden Sunset will delight you with the food. The head waiter, Ed, will make you feel at home and let you know what is best about their food. We saw many people enjoying the breakfast foods all day long, but our favorites were the Greek Salad and the Fried Calamari. You can also sit here for the sunset and enjoy anything on the menu!

“Great food, great service, great view, wonderful sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

We stayed in Fira and happened upon the Golden Sunset on our way to a different cafe, walking along the famous cliff path. Ed, the manager/marketing director/ server/ pr agent stopped us. We went on to the other place where they didn't greet us at all. So we went back to the Golden Sunset. We were not disappointed. The food was wonderful, the view was great, and Ed was the best server one could ask for. It was relatively inexpensive. It was such a breath of fresh air compared to so much rude service we had received on the island. We liked it so much we went back for breakfast. Which was equally wonderful.
Oh, and we thought the sunset view here was better than the one we saw in Oia. Not sure why Oia is so famous. This was much less crowded!
Definitely recommend this restaurant, but it is a cash only place (like many restaurants in Santorini.) So be sure to have enough with you!
