Although pricy this place is absolutely excellent. The food was delicious and non-Greek wine was available which made my evening!

Amazing restaurant in FIRA with such a special relaxing atmosphere, very friendly and helpful staff, delicious and beautiful dishes, good selection of wine and champagne. Try Greek musaka and cheesecake, as well as spaghetti with seafood. Come for the sunset and chill out. It is one of those places which has its own unique atmosphere, which is so hard to find today. This restaurant is way better then some top restaurants in Dubai.
It is not cheap, but Santorini is a place you go to spend your holidays and get new experiences, so pay for it and enjoy it. Food is excellent, all my guests (total 10) enjoyed their dishes in Sphinx.

For those who are planning to celebrate some special event, contact Eleni from the restaurants - she will do her best to make your event go smooth.

Thank you very much Sphinx team.
Continue same way!

Nice restaurant with fresh seafood, prepared in such an unremarkable way at tourist trap prices. With a good chef this place could be awesome. The atmosphere and friendly staff coupled with some delicious local wine will make this a lovely time, until the check arrives. The views are absolutely breathtaking and makes it all worthwhile

Fantastic setting on the caldera in Fira, with really friendly and helpful staff which went some way to offsetting the disappointing food. The sauces with the octopus starter and the lamb cutlets main were over-thickened with too much cornflower and overwhelmed the dishes. Unfortunately, the fish souvlaki was spoilt by stringy cubes of what I think was monk fish -- but I can't be sure because even with two candles on the table after sunset, it was too dark to see! A head torch would have been useful. Argo restaurant, further down the road towards the cable station has an equally stunning view and in my opinion, better food and atmosphere -- and is superior value for money. Oh and I could even see what I was eating.
