It was a hot day in Fira, so we stopped in for espresso freddo and a light snack at Sphinx because of their beautiful outdoor seating area overlooking the caldera. The staff was very professional and attentive, and the appetizers we selected were generous, fresh, and extremely delicious. I plan to return here for dinner when I make it back... More

Our hotel booked us this restaurant for the last night of our honeymoon. The view was perfect for the "famous Santorini sunset".

We ate dinner here. The view was amazing, the food was delicious, but super expensive and super small portions. Be prepared to pay over €150 for dinner and that's without dessert or cafe. Our whole family left hungry.

We went for pictures at sunset and a good meal. We definitely got the great sunset with the traditional clapping of hands as the sun set. It was indeed a beautiful site. The restaurant is located at the top of Fira and a little hard to get to if you are a senior traveler. You have to maneuver a sharp... More

More sophisticated than most Fira restaurants- with prices to match. Good service with waiter changing the odd tuna salad without questioning.

Thank Rachel M
