Out of our group of four, I enjoyed my meal the most. Located on the cliffside in Fira, this restaurant is a little more on the fine dining side. My meal was delicious and the views are awesome. While it is a bit more expensive than a few of the other restaurants we ate at, it was still well priced.

We had dinner at the Spinx restaurant on our first night in Santorini. It was a perfect introduction to the beautiful location and the wonderful food. Prices were great, and the wine was excellent.

A bit on the fancier side for restaurants in Fira but they had a great location with views of the caldera and right across to oia. We had the fava beans and muscles to start, both which were great. For the main course I had the porchini mushroom and truffle risotto which was fantastic served with a cold ricotta cream... More

This place was close to our hotel & recommended by our hotel manager - it definitely lived up to the recommendation! The pasta was fresh & extremely tasty. Try the basil linguine & fresh truffle mushroom linguine - they were awesome! We went back a second night & both had the fillets - cooked to perfection! Also, the wine list... More

We went for the view but were pleasantly surprised by the quality. Be prepared for a climb down for the bathrooms. The lamb chops were excellent.

Spectacular location, friendly and attentive staff, and delightful menu. After gazing at the many options I settled on the leg of the lamb and was blown away. Pricey, but generous proportion. Served on a bed of rice with feta, capers, bay leaves and some other quality produce. The lamb itself just fell off the bone. Girlfriend also raved about her... More

The location is great - right in Fira, on the side of the cliff - I guess it's too much to ask for good food too, I mean it's ONLY a restaurant. I got a 32e small slab of red snapper with exactly 6 capers, 1 cherry tomato cut in half and a bit of drizzled sauce. I've been around... More

We visited Sphinx on the recommendation of some friends, albeit with the proviso that it's more expensive than most of the other restaurants in Thira. The food was certainly very good, as was the service, but portions were slightly on the mean side. I began with seafood carpaccio - slices of tuna, swordfish and salmon - which I enjoyed as... More
