Naoussa Tavern offers a great view of the caldera, sunset, and the town of Fira. My wife and I both enjoyed our meals there. She had the moussaka which was outstanding. I had the red snapper, which was also excellent. However, be forewarned that they serve the fish whole; you have to pick out the bones. It was very tasty though!

The staff was also very friendly and understanding when I informed them that I mistakenly left my wallet at our hotel and was unable to pay the bill. They did not make the slightest fuss about it and simply asked us to pay the bill when we returned the following day.

Went here on recommendation from hotel and whilst central (next to square Thira) was just off main drag so prices a little more competitive. We had the sea bream and king prawns which were both very tasty but bread and salad which were volunteered to us were added to the bill which was disappointing (but not unexpected). Atmosphere was nothing special but it was mid afternoon so no problem... A bit more effort on the service and this could be five stars thanks to the food. Both ground floor and top floor have pretty good views.

Excellent traditional food (and we are Greeks ourselves). Kleftiko was delicious! Make sure you make a reservation.

After researching many restaurants and reviews in Santorini, Naoussa made it to the list of go-tos. We're very happy we tried it! The food and service were both some of the best we received in Santorini. We started with a dip sampler (incredible) this place has the best tzatziki I've ever tasted. Along with a few other appetizers and some wine, we were off to a good start. For entrees we shared a lamb shank special, and a mousaka. Both so delicious, the food tasted like something out of my mother's kitchen. The service was great too. We believe our primary server was Alexey, who was extremely helpful and polite, but a handful of people made it a point to stop at the table and retrieve anything we needed at the moment. At the end of the meal we also received some complimentary dessert wine and espressos for being the only table in the restaurant smiling! (I believe this is because Europeans have that stern poker-face look to them, and we were a group of Americans letting loose and having fun, not a reflection of the restaurant) The employees were great hosts, and the food was equally impressive, highly recommend Naoussa to anyone!!

We ate at a lot of tourist trappy restaurants while in Greece... lure you in, rely on location or good view, but the food is no good. This was not the case here! Great view and ALSO really good food. Overall great experience. Get there early though or make reservation, otherwise the wait might be long. REALLY great quality for the price!
