We were staying here so we ate at the restaurant after arriving late. The food was fresh and cooked well. We both enjoyed our meals. More of a modern style than traditional food. Service was excellent. Cosy and romantic atmosphere. A lovely introduction to Santorini

An outstanding restaurant, with amazing sunset views of the caldera. The food was delicious, and the service impeccable. Highly recommended!

If you're looking to have a sunset dinner in Oia, THIS is the place to go. Request a table outside and you will not be sorry. We had a table for 5 and essentially got our own private balcony. One of the most beautiful dinners I have ever had. A man proposed to his girlfriend right behind us as the sun was setting! The food is not spectacular. I got a delicious chunk of Lamb, but the other diners were less enthusiastic about their dishes. Incredible view, good but not incredible food.

I had high expectations in the Fanari restaurant. The location and setting are amazing. The terrace directly faces the sunset and the restaurant itself is very pretty. But food and service were inconsistent in quality...

When we arrived it was quite cold. We asked if we could have appetizers on the terrace and then move to the dining room when the sun had set. When we asked about some blankets since it was quite chilly, the receptionist claimed there were none. However, when we were sitting outside and watching the sunset, we noticed that other guests actually had some wool blankets to fight the cold... Also, when we moved inside, the waiters forgot about everything: We had to explicitly ask them to bring cutlery, a glass for the mineral water, napkins (they brought paper ones instead of linen) and salt/pepper. No one ever asked or seemed to care if everything was fine or if we wanted another glass of wine... Also one of the waiters was not as friendly as we have experienced anywhere else in Santorini.

The food was bland. Since we had dined at APIRON in Fira the night before we knew that it's not just the way they cook there: They can do much better: The fish soup did not taste like fish at all. The mains were really boring, it was edible. But the fresh fish was cooked to death. My Lamb Souvlaki had to taste or sauce at all. Considering the high prices they charge, I would have expected much better food and service. We had originally thought about staying at Fanari Suites. But after this disappointing dining experience we were so glad we chose KATIKIES instead which is just lightyears ahead in food and service.

We would probably not return. Maybe for a drink on the terrace to watch the sunset.

This was our favorite stop for breakfast. The best was the stuffed cherry peppers and the grape leaves.
The coffee was hot and our host, Lina was wonderful. To sit outside and view the the beautiful Santorini morning was more than stunning, it was a change in perspective.
