Huge tourist trap. Food was not very good at all but the place is full because it is next to the gondola and has a nice view. We had the spinach pie and grape leaf rolls. The spinach pie was deep fried and burnt and the rolls had no taste. This is a place to grab 1 drink for the... More

Don't bother eating or drinking here as the staff are very rude and have a terrible attitude ... we had 1 drink and couldn't wait to leave in. You can take in the breath taking view on the walkway beside the restaurant ... DO NOT ENTER the restaurant ... you'll only be very disappointed!!

It is situated right by the cable car so we assumed it would be a bit high volume - however our food was reasonably priced, tasted great and we returned on our last day and had an even better meal - wonderful views, particularly from upper terrace

I only gave this place one star as it's impossible to give none. We had dinner here on our last night in Santorini. Up until now we had fantastic experiences with all staff and food in restaurants, cafes etc. The food bordered on inedible. I ordered mussels and ate one. The reason I didn't eat the rest was that I... More

The food and service are average. The price is average. The view is amazing in the night. But really average for everything else. Convenient but remember average is the key word here.

We ended up here because we waited too long to go and find dinner so we were hungry. After walking from Firostefani, we thought this place would be good but it is clearly geared towards tourists who want the view and location rather than good quality food. The portions are huge and simply bland. The wine served in small, boring... More

This place is in a prime position, great views, right by the cable car. It's expensive but not as expensive as some. The moussaka was really good, but the service was appalling. Rude, bordering on aggressive. My husband left a tip - I definitely would not have! Cannot recommend - we went to Mama's House the following evening and they... More

When in Santorini recently we ate at Zafora several times. It was very convenient to our villa, and it quickly became a favorite place to eat for us. The Greek breakfast was an American breakfast with a Greek twist...fresh fried eggs with a healthy garnish of red ripe tomatoes, olives and feta cheese. My breakfast-loving husband was right at home.... More

This was the first place we stopped for food when we got to Santorini and it did fine for us. It's location was brilliant for views of the caldera, which us why we decided to go there. It's on two floors, so you can choose the rooftop terrace or shelter on a cooler day. I had the moussaka, which was... More

It's a shame that this spot has got it so wrong because the location is perfect and the prices seemed reasonable. Our experience was absolutely terrible! The cocktails were barely drinkable, I had to send mine back and couldn't bring myself to order another! The waiter was rude and aggressive and we left before ordering food. The other restaurants up... More
