We did not know what we would find open during our off-season visit to Santorini. To our great fortune, one of the restaurants that was open was Ellis, which also happened to be very close to our villa. The food was superb. Our daughter who has been studying in Greece all Fall declared it to be "the best" Greek food... More

Great food and service. We were there on a very cool week, and Ellis was a warm and cozy respite.

Our host was unbelieveably nice. He made us feel at home, and we ate here twice in the week we were in town. Late in the season there were only a few restaurants that were open, and we appreciated the fact that this was one of them. The ingredients were not as fresh as you would expect in the summer...

We did not have reservations, but discovered this restaurant while walking near our hotel in Fira on the Island of Santorini. We were dining early for that country ( at 6:00 pm) so they were able to accommodate us. This place offered two dining areas.. one on the top floor was outdoor seating and that had a great view of...

Visited Ellis restaurant with my girlfriend in October 2011 on the advice of our hotels manager for a good restaurant to watch the sunset. Didn't know there was a need to write a review as everyone seemed to agree it was as fantastic as we found it. But just saw a review claiming the fish was not fresh, the service... More

We've been having dinner in this restaurant 2 days ago and the food is ok but not real local greek cuisine. The sea bass that I had was not good and surely coming from a fish farm and not from this beautifull area...they are selling it like just caught from the local fishermen but this is not true. Concerning the... More

This restaurant is well worth a visit, it's on the edge of the Fira Strip , so can be missed by accident. Food was great , service was good and you even get a free desert! Prices were also reasonable and the view was also good - one of the best restaurants in Fira!!

Ellis offered great food in a lovely setting with amazing views of the Caldera and Fira. They offer you house wine while you wait for your table and dessert is on the house. A must try is the lamb in the foil and the moussaka was the best we had in all of Greece!

We were recommended this restaurant by our First Choice and we loved it. It has wonderful views of the Caldera views and has a great selection of meals to choose from. I had Shrimp Toscan which was to die for, Staff were also extremely helpful.
