I cannot rave enough about this place! I stayed in Fira with my 2 best friends and our hotel receptionist recommended Ellis. We were in Fira about a week before the heavy tourist season started so their sister restaurant (naoussa) was not open yet. Because of this, Ellis was using their menu which is apparently priced lower. When we arrived, the waiter ensured that we had a table with a great view on their balcony. He got us started with some wine and an appetizer while we watched the sunset. Afterwards, they moved us inside because it got cold and treated us with a free liter of wine. The food is heavenly, especially the moussaka! we had such a great time that we returned the following evening, only to receive the same great service. I highly recommend Ellis!

I had a wonderful meal at this cliff perched restaurant but as some others have noted, the service wasn't brilliant. Slow on some things; a sneer on others (is it really too much to ask for olive oil and salt to go with my bread). But I'd probably still go back again just for the view and the food.

We stepped into Ellis Restaurant on our first evening in Santorini because it was close to our hotel and it looked warm and inviting. It was such a lovely experience that we went there again, on the evening before we left the island, even though it was a bit on the expensive side.

The restaurant inside is very elegant, and the patio I imagine would be a great place to dine in in summer. It is run by two sisters, one of whom is the chef and the other runs the service.

It is clear that the food is made absolutely fresh, from scratch, and one has to wait for it, but that was easy to do with the bottle of excellent Santorini wine we were recommended and the freshly baked bread that accompanied it. Every dish that we ate was elegantly presented and exquisitely cooked, even the traditional Greek food we'd been having coming with a special, 'Ellis' twist.

Highly recommended, inside or out!

We arrived at the restaurant and greeted us quite well., The view was fantastic but the bill was double charged us and when we asked the waiter to explain why our bill was inflated he could'nt because he could not speak good English.

This restaurant was on the edge of town but close from where we stayed. The food took longer than other places to come but it was delicious!! Especially the starter we had - it was Chicken on skewer with pita bread and yogurt sauce...ummm yum. Wish we went for lunch in stead for the view as it was quite dark. Good place:)
