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!

Be prepared to pay for the view. Drinks were the most expensive we had whilst in Santorini. €16 for a cocktail? Deck chairs were cool,service was slow enough. We enjoyed the classical music and stayed for one drink but wouldn't be back as it's just too dear to have a few drinks there.

We asked which champagne they were serving by the glass, and the waiter responded: a Greek one, it's very nice. A 15 Euro glass of champagne would be ok if it was actually champagne, but I'm quite sure that it's illegal to sell local sparking wine as champagne... Ditto for the "champagne" cocktails. Nice view, nice music, but I don't... More

Lovely place to relax enjoy a drink and look at the amazing views of the caldera. Service is quick and the waitress was very friendly and helpful. I thought the drinks were on the expensive side but you have to expect to pay a premium when you have amazing views.
