Looking for a very special restaurant....

Hubby and I are travelling to Kamari in August (can't wait!) and know we will be well catered for food wise while we are there. However, I would love some recommendations re restaurants (maybe in Fira..) which are that little bit special. Either they are very old, beautifully perched, or wonderfully romantic. All of the above with good food would be fantastic!! Within taxi distance of Kamari? Thank you

Ok so in Fira, you have Archipelagos which is nice, more creative and on the cliffside with a view to the volcano. its right across from the Greek Orthodox cathedral.

A little bit out of Fira, in Firastefani, is Vanilia, which i like alot, again, some tables have cliffside views, others in the lower dining area are in a garden of bougainvillia......very romantic.

these are more expensive than tavernas so a meal for two will run to about 120 euros including wine. (2 starters, 2 mains and a bottle of wine)

Thought I'd seen this somewhere - Selene has moved locations. Its now in Pyrgos.

Seconding Ambrosia. As stated, you pay more for the view than you would in Kamari. But where else do you get a view like that?

Ambrosia is in Oia, so I don't know if you consider that taxi distance. Perhaps you could take a bus there to save cash and then a taxi back to Kamari. Or maybe the bus would ruin the specialness of the occasion.

Anyway, Ambrosia had a spectacular view and great food fit for a special occasion. With any of these places, I'd suggest you try to book before sunset (make reservation and keep eye on sunset times) so that you can get that famous view before and after. And of course watch the island change as the sun drops into the water. It's like a painting

And don't forget the restaurants down on the wharf at Amoudi Bay below Oia, a very special place for a meal:

Katina's Fish Taverna, Tis Pandora, Taverna Dimitris, Sunset Taverna

I'm convinced that you're on commission from Katina's etc Lee :-))

Mind you, I'm going to be banging on about Ntomatini in Perissa all summer so it might look as though I'm on commission from them too.
