Location and contact

It is a Coffee-Bar done with respect to the Greek tradition on the top of Pyrgos hill.We serve a selection of coffee, fresh fruit drinks, milk shakes, ice creams and desserts.Some appetizers and light food are available.Aperitifs and cocktails are our pride: Mr. Franco, the owner, has a collection of international awards for the quality of his drinks and for the style of his management.Warning! Because of its style and music (classical and retro only) Franco's Café is not addressed to everybody, but to people with a certain sensitivity.

We got there for the famous Santorini sunset. (Pyrgos is always a good sunset alternative to Oia, especially in July and August when you have to fight for a spot to watch the sunset from the narrow streets because Oia gets totally overcrowded.) We came...More

Some years ago (it should be 15 years ago, if I am right), I was flying to Santorini, for the first time, to spend my holidays and an American lady suggested me to visit Oia for its famous sunset, the excavations in Akrotiri, to take...More

Franco's bar is perched right at the top of the pretty, charming town of Pyrgos. We stayed nearby and became seriously addicted to our bottle of wine as we watched the stunning nightly sunsets. The place is peaceful and pretty, although be warned, it is...More
