We went after a recommendation we heard about. We reserved some rocking deck chairs for front row seats to the sun set. Drinks where expensive but what do you expect, the quality of the drinks where nothing special my mojito tasted like pure rum and ice nothing else. The view isn't the best to be honest, look at my picture... More

Very expensive and doesn't justify the price. It was a cold evening and we ordered a hot chocolate and it was just about as good as the one you could make yourself. And it was 8€!! View might be great but I can't see how a frappe with baileys is ever worth 12€. Standard price is 5-8€. Service isn't bad... More

All the other reviews comment on amazing view but expensive. I think the two go hand in hand. We had two kie royale with some olives which was over 49 euros, so yes it's expensive. But the view is superb. We only stayed for drinks as we had a better view coming (Argo restaurant) but we enjoyed the experience.

Lying on sunbeds with amazing view to Caldera and Oia playing classical music, it's an experience you should not miss. But, overexpensive.

Nice place to lay back and enjoy the view during the sunrise or during the night. Choose a bottle of wine or a cocktail and lay back. Local beers are excellent choice as well.

We stopped off here for cocktails. The cocktails are massively over priced the service is terribly slow but the chairs are comfy and the views are great.

We had a drink here during our Honeymoon and wouldn't recommend visiting. The bar is attempting to be a high class cocktail bar but it isn't working out well. The man that was serving us seemed more preoccupied in a group of girls and was not listening as we ordered. He even had to come back as he had forgotten... More

Yes this bar has a fantastic location and ambiance, perfect place to see the famous sunset over the caldera, and the classical music just plays with your emotions, making it quite magical, but then, WHAM, the bill!! Back down to earth with a nasty shock! 2 small coffee, one brandy, 29 euro. If I had loads of money I'd go... More

Cyclades architecture, one of the best views in the planet (for me). I lived 6 months in this island, every night I was outside Franco's for the view. Classic music lovers, this is the place to be. Enjoy a lovely champagne cocktail while listening to Callas and enjoying the view ant the peace and tranquility of the place, sucking all... More

This place is amazing the views are out of this world, lovely just sitting here watching the views and listening to classical music, so chilled out and relaxing. Bit pricey but well worth it for the fantastic scenic view!
