We have been to Fira twice now,totalling 7 nights, and choose to eat at this restaurant every time for either dinners or lunches. The view is breathtaking , the food amazing and the friendly staff just keep us coming back every time. Special mention must go to Renalto, who was always on hand to spoil us with some free treat(extra salad, stuffed pita bread, chocolate cake, dessert wine, rockmelon), to name a few. The grilled Calamari is one of our favourites there, but all of their dishes are worth trying.Watching the spectacular sunsets from your table while enjoying the wonderful food and wine is so romantic and a must when visiting Santorini .We'll be back!!!

I have been to Fanari on every visit to Santorini and every time I return my friends and I are again amazed by the DELICIOUS food, SPECTACULAR views of the caldera and INCREDIBLE hospitality by the staff and managers! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Santorini! The traditional Lamb Kleftiko, stuffed calamari and veal steak are my favourite mains!!!!

We were told to come to Fanari by someone we met on the plane and then by the people who ran the apartments we stayed in. We're glad we listened. We watched an amazing sunset followed by a delicious meal. The zucchini balls and the stuffed calamari were lovely and they gave us complimentary bread to start and chocolate cake, water Mellon and desert wine to finish. We highly recommend. If u book u are more likely to get a good table with the best view!

We had dinner here at our first night in Santorini, as recommended by our hotel. After a few more meals around the place, I can say that the menu is reasonably priced. We got there when it was fairly busy (sunset time) but because there are three tiers of dining space, we still got a table with uninterrupted views.

The sunset over the ocean was incredible. I know that Oia us known as the place of sunsets but we went to Oia a few nights latter and everyone was crowded to the point where the sun goes down and it was not enjoyable at all. The views I had on the cliff at Thira were much better.

We ordered a greek salad and seafood platter which was ok but didn't have much flavour. If I was to choose again, I would have gone for meat.

We were very fortunate that we found a table by the cliffside Restaurant Fanari... The night was incredible because we were lucky to witness the fireworks display from the volcano. We were very impressed by the delicious food (mezede), and especially the grilled sea bream. The service was very friendly and helpfull apart that it was such a busy night. I recomend if you ever visit Santorini..... A must
