Like everybody else, we were in Oia for the sunset. As the (large) crowds were starting to gather around the castle ruins and take up all the best vantage points, we decided to explore and wandered down the hill towards the windmill - and what a decision that turned out to be! We happened across the Fanari Villas and asked if their restaurant was open to non-residents. Thankfully, it was and we had the highlight of our wonderful week in Santorini. We had ringside seats to the most beautiful sunset. To be able to watch it in such a fantastic, romantic setting with a cold glass of wine and superb food was the icing on the cake. We couldn't believe the Fanari wasn't packed to the rafters - if the hundreds of people in and around the ruins knew what they were missing, it would have been. We can't recommend the Fanari highly enough - we went to a different restaurant or taverna each night in Fira/Oia and this was head and shoulders above the rest. We have a holiday memory to treasure forever.

White table cloth, stunning views BUT the food not worth it ---- I ordered the catch of the day - covered in a sauce to hide it not sure what it was as was on the menu it said sea bream -this wasnt flaky, but steak.... besides the different color and different taste, I had to give to friend to make sure it was bad. My other friend got the spaghetti as she's a vegetarian. It was so spicy she could barely eat it. Kids sitting at a table next to us we're complaining in French about it too. The waiter took it off the bill that was very nice of him, but he was more annoyed than sorry the food was bad. They waited a good 1/2 hr to come by and ask if you needed anything after they served your food. I thought that was weird. Go for a glass of wine not a meal.

The atmosphere was amazing, and the food was lovely! My boyfriend and i had a great evening together here.. Food was really good (far from the typical greek taverna food). Great quality! And the sunset was simply amazing. If you want to enjoy the Oia sunset with wonderful food and waiters (hopefully good company) - go here! Spend time enjoying where you are:)

We had a reservation at another restaurant close to the windmill,but happened to bump into Fanari when sightseeing before dinner.and we were blown away! A fantastic view, were you have the terraces of Oia underneath you, and perfectly positioned to enjoy the sunset while sharing a bottle of good wine and a nice dinner. Rather expensive, as everything in Oia,but in Fanari you pay for quality. For a 3 course dinner with a bottle of wine we paid about €150. If you're 2 people make sure to reserve table 5,it has the absolute best view of the sunset!
