My girlfriend and I chanced upon this restaurant for a late lunch after we got lost walking from the bus station to our villa in Fira.

The meal turned out of be one of the best I had in Santorini! After a long flight, we both had strong but flavourful Greek coffees to freshen up, followed by the amazing tomato fritters.

The fritters were the best I tasted in the 5 days we were in Santorini. The pairing of the fried tomatoes and flour with fresh dill was really good. The mains, a lamb shank and stewed beef were really good as well.

Great food, good views and amazing service, not very much to ask for especially given the affordable prices!

Although at the very end of Fira, this restaurant has great views and makes it an ideal place for a quiet meal. They have a vast range of Greek dishes - less expensive than other restaurants in the centre.

The Ellis restaurant is on the caldera rim and has great views. The service is fine and the food as well. We had very nice baked Santorini cheese, fresh seabass (filleted on the table), lamb with cheese and vegetables and a nice pannacotta. It is a bit more expensive than other places but very good.

This place is located in Fira town, on a beautiful hill overlooking the Calera sea.
It has some of the best Santorini fritters I've eaten and delicious seafood platters to feed a family of four! Don't expect the seafood to be cooked in fancy sauces or overloaded with herbs and spices. It's cooked in a very simple, but delicious way.
Great value, lots of food, great Santorini wine and friendly staff to help you select your menu, while you watch the sunset.
